In practice, Roy, it is evidence that one cannot conceive as
having any other explanation. In terms of the history and
sociology of science, "one" in that sentence stands for a
certain momentum of professional consensus. If you are speaking
in terms of ourselves as individuals, then you make up your own
mind. As I thought I said plainly,

"I would not say, personally, that [Minot] is unequivocal proof
of ET."

If, like Gildas, you think it is, then by all means explain to
us why.
