I learned about tribalism on here. No vast amount of evidence and rationale will ever overcome a tribal belief.
I spent years repeating the same methodology and expecting a different result, so I guess I'm less sane than they are.
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.

I make multiple mistakes per minute. Usually no one notices, but when they do, I drink Dos Equis.
