New Blog – Evidence or STFU

Posted in Uncategorized by rantymcrant on May 10, 2010

There is a new blog on the internets, bearing the title “Evidence Or STFU“. Evidence or STFU always puts me in mind of the motto of the Royal Society, nullius in verba.

Determined not to accept appeals to authority, but to verify the facts, the Royal Society could scarcely have chosen a better motto than nullius in verba (“on the word of no-one”). Evidence or STFU as a phrase is, in my opinion, the bastard child of nullius in verba. Frankly, it should be used more often.
