    Good science requires distinguishing between “felt knowledge” and knowledge arising out of testable observations. “I am sure” is a mental sensation, not a testable conclusion. Put hunches, gut feelings, and intuitions into the suggestion box. Let empiric methods shake out the good from bad suggestions.
