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.

Huh, I thought that was the dress code to post on Skeptics, have I been doing this wrong????

It has long been my philosophy of life to never come up to code. That would just raise unachievable expectations.
