1. Question authority.
   -- No idea is true just because someone says so.

2. Think for yourself.
   -- Question yourself.

3. Don't believe anything, just because you want to.
   -- Believing something doesn't make it so.

4. Test ideas by the evidence gained
   -- from observation and experiment.
   -- If a favorite idea fails a well-designed test,
       it's wrong! Get over it.
   -- Follow the evidence, wherever it leads.
   -- If you have no evidence, reserve judgment.

5. Most important rule - you could be wrong.

. . . Neil DeGrasse Tyson
