Condition: You are the only person who has seen the sky
-Everyone else refuses or cannot look at the sky or photographs/movies of the sky
-Everyone demands absolute irrefutable evidence
You have seen the sky so you know it's something real. Since you know its real with certainty, is there a way to prove it or share a provable truth about it?
Imo this roots in the poor human preception, too much sceptisism will make us denying even what is blatan obvious.
But ofcause sceptisism in itself is healthy, avoiding being manipulated, fooled, and/or jump to conclusions too fast.
I have experienced the very same as your story describes.
I have played ALOT
of Age of Kings over many years, but in my early days of Age of Kings, I would often crack down on people who would claim being Inters/Experts, just saying you 3 v me! I would beat people, often enter games and just say 3v5 and gaining a reputation and immense fame by that. Even 1 3v5 game, an ally would drop and I still won, just telling my ally ..just keep your walls! ^^
People would precive me as an high
expert, while consider themselfs experts, but I claimed on a scale from 1-10 (10 being the best), I'm but a humble 3, and ur 2 ..at best, unfortunaly they took it as an great offence me judgeing them as being very poor players as they just couldn't imagine that people could get so many steps up the ladder.
