The 2 types of evidence

The two main types of evidence are:

(1)    Your own experience
(2)    The experience of others you trust to tell the truth

Clearly, you own experience is far more powerful than listening to the stories told by others and is much more likely to be trusted when constructing a world view.  For, even with people we trust, we only have their descriptions of events to go by and this is subject to their interpretation and the limitations of language.
