I played with one in answer to some biblical SPAM (my thesis, "scientists
follow their own standard of truth better than biblical literalists follow
theirs"), but, of course, that's not a *real* answer.
To the best of my (limited) knowledge, there is *no external basis* on
which one can determine the "Truth" of the various routes to knowledge.
(who is an intuitionist; but who will not hesitate to say, "When my
intuition and your intuition disagree, or even when they don't, there is a
pretty good chance both of us don't know our intuitions from fresh
steaming bull manure."
