"There are three kinds of liars
Damned liars,
And statisticians"

Statisticians lie, statistics don't. Just like in everything, the human factor is the weak factor.

I'm not suggesting we give up the search, I never did. I am suggesting that people stop ramrodding a guess down my throat just because there are no better guesses yet. I don't mind other things being spoken of as occurrences because there are shreds of evidence to support them, and strong evidence in other areas. However a "theory" (scoff) with zero supporting evidence isn't a theory at all. It is a guess. A guess that may one day be proven accurate, but a guess nonetheless. It should be treated as such.
