"We know-not only from research experiments in psychology but also from the history of science-that the lowest form of evidence is eyewitness testimony. Which is scary, because in a court of law it’s considered one of the highest forms of evidence."

— Neil deGrasse Tyson (excerpt from his book, Space Chronicles)
