In laboratories today we can induce religious experiences by stimulating certain parts of the brain. I weigh the one miracle against the other; and according to the superiority, which I discover, I pronounce my decision, and always reject the greater miracle.

Many volumes of work are written in rebuttal to solipsism and external world skepticism.
