There is a reason, a simple one, why I hold to the rules of argument and standards of evidence that I do, and not just ‘accept’ important claims without any reason: To do otherwise would be dishonest, as I’d be fooling first myself and then others in promoting nonsense disguised as fact.

There’s a Dick Feynman quote that applies nicely here:

“The first principle is that you must not be fooled – and you are the easiest person to fool.”
