Extraordinary claims is defined as a claim the completely changes the way the scientific community goes about doing its business. It does not pertain to the way the universe makes sense to the individual. Science is not a religion, it is not the thought police. It only applies to one person trying to change the mind of another. If I am trying to change your mind I have to prove it to you. If I am describing my perspective on the world and how it works I don’t have to prove it to you. I am an authority on what I think.
This deviation on Russell’s teapot argument again presupposes that one person believes something wild and has to convince another of it. If they are not convincing another of it and they are not harming anyone they can think whatever they want.
Religious language is a psychological language for describing an internal world. How the world makes sense to the individual. Not that they are correct but maybe they are not capable of expressing themselves in a scientific and objective manner. This is something that the cheerleaders of science have to understand.
