[quote=“scherpschutter, post:15, topic:1320”]Well, hopefully you all now this example of inductive reasoning:
If a bird looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck
It’s nearly always relevant
A friend of mine has a Volvo, a very dangerous car (for other road-users) and when I like to tease him a little, I say things like:
Looks like a tank, drives like a tank, feels like a tank. Conclusion: a tank[/quote]
This is, of course, a good analogy. But only if we all agree on what constitutes a duck!
Just because it’s a bird that swims doesn’t neccesarily mean it’s a duck. Could be a goose.
