Only you

In a comment, Dave says, "Whenever I see the word 'only,' and especially when I see it repeated, my 'certainty alert' radar lights up." He refers to my repeated use of the word "only" in one of my posts.

And I'm happy to be called on it.

A good skeptic should use such words sparingly, if at all. Or I should say, a good skeptic should probably use such words sparingly, if at all. Or maybe, I suppose a good skeptic should probably use such words sparingly, if at all. Or...

Uh, oh. Go too far down this road and we'll have the Platters singing:

Perhaps you can make this world seem right
Possibly you can make the darkness bright
Conceivably you and you alone
Can thrill me like you do
And fill my heart with love for maybe you
