Morning Scepticism: Eyewitness

If eyewitness accounts are the only available evidence for a particular phenomena, then it's only fair to analyse those claims in the context of what we know about the mind. False memories, interpretation, pareidolia, hallucinations, lying, etc. These are phenomena that we know exist. So the next time you're abducted by aliens at least try to smuggle back the probe they used, otherwise the account has little chance of being plausible.
