    You are going to be accused of being prejudiced against those who subscribe to authority-based reasoning, meaning that if an authority figure tells you something is so, then you believe that it is so, lol. And a lot of people seem to do that with science and history and other subjects because they didn't actually go look at the evidence themselves and don't have the expertise to make conclusions themselves, lol. :)

    Anyone accusing him of prejudice would be playing the victim card. Why listen to "authorities" why not go and look at the evidence first before coming to a conclusion? What's with having "authority figures" anyways? They're only men, and while some men can be wise these guys are mostly just storytellers.

    With science and history we get facts and dates, not theories and ideas to put faith in. “Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld.”—Hebrews 11:1.

    With science there is no faith there is black and white truth and non truth through testing ideas and by knowledge. It's a whole different ball game.

    That is historically incorrect Nero wasn’t even in Rome when the fires started, but he hurried back home and opened up a large portion of his castle to injured and homeless people. I mean, Nero was an asshat, but a lot of the stories about him are just propaganda

    An appeal to authority leads to a logical fallacy. Fallacious reasoning should always be avoided, if we care about whether what we believe is true or not.

    Suppose Dr. Witten publishes a quantum theory of gravity next week. I am in no position to evaluate his work, but I do trust that the process of peer review will eventually determine whether the work is valid or not. :)

    4 years seems to be about as long as I can go in one career before I feel the need to jump ship and learn something new.
