This is from James Anderson, who was quoted in Triablogue's The Infidel Delusion.
One final remark: I don‘t think Carrier does himself any favors by casting his claims in terms of ‗extraordinariness‘. Perhaps he sees some rhetorical benefit in parroting Sagan. But suppose I call you up and tell you I‘ve just won the lottery (and on the first occasion I‘ve ever bought a ticket). Surely that‘s an extraordinary claim. Naturally you‘re skeptical, so I invite you over to my house, where you see with your own eyes both my ticket and the newspaper reporting the winning numbers. I‘d say that would be sufficient for you to rationally believe that I‘ve won the lottery. But did you have *extraordinary* evidence? Hardly. The evidence you had was of the most ordinary kind.
Lottery examples have frequently figured in discussions of Hume on miracles. But it does seem that they can be used in the discussion of the "weak Humeanism" of ECREA.
