    Tommy can’t see Elvis is a cat? Perhaps he has never met a Siamese before. Since he is outside, he might have met a “mailman”, though. Assuming such things exist.

    Slugs and snails and puppy-dog tails.

    There is more to the the scientific method than that. One has to cook up a hypothesis that could explain the evidence. Then see what else you can predict from that hypothesis. If the predictions fail, the hypothesis is wrong. If the predictions don’t fail, the hypothesis might be true. (But it might still be false.) If a hypothesis consistently passes lots of these tests, and enables us to generate other successful hypotheses, then we have a theory. A theory is regarded as probably a true-ish approximation of what might really be the case. But not TRUE.

    Elvis is overdoing his scepticism when he says “Never going to happen”. Puck is simply being credulous.

    Does anyone else here know what a bottle-o or a rag and bone man was?

    I’m pretty sure Elvis is right, but even if he isn’t, his firm scepticism (or skepticism in his part of the world) is the right attitude. Don’t believe it until you have solid evidence.

    Sure. Show us a shaky, blurry, bit of film of what might be a shadow reaching towards the door, and then try to tell us that the “mailman” is real. Sorry, I’ll want better evidence than that.
