Scale of Credibility
A lot of people on this site have taken sides on different issues (faith, time travel, etc.) based on the sayings of different characters in the show (and what else do we have to go on really?)
Could we come up with a scale of credibility as to what sources of information are accurate and what sources are doubtful?
From 1 to 10 for example
Anything Daniel Faraday says on the subject of TIME TRAVEL as it applies to theoretical physics gets a 9 out of 10. As it applies to practical or applied physics it may get a 6 as it is un-proven until it is proven.
Anything coming out of Benjamin Linus’ mouth gets an automatic 0 or 1 until it is proven to be true.
Jack on medecine or pathology (for example the dating of Adam and Eve, or the effects and horrible death as a result of his cutting Sawyer off from antibiotics) may get a 6 or an 8 as it approaches his own area of expertise.
Hurley on food and comic book heroes (I mean come on, would you really side with Charlie over Hurley on the whole Superman vs Flash debate?) 8 or 9 out of 10.
Can you think of other examples?
