16 — The Prioritizing of Evidence

2 Leave a comment on block 2 0

Clear pieces of evidence are given priority over obscure ones, and those that produce knowledge over those that produce belief. Utterance is given priority over analogy, and clear analogy over obscure analogy. If one finds an utterance that alters the default, then the default is altered, but if not then one presumes continuity.
