If the Institute for Creation Research said "Our studies have shown that the earth is most likely 6,000 years old", you would either dismiss it summarily, or at least say "Show me how you conducted your study."

If an Apple alum says "Our studies showed that using the mouse is faster than using keyboard shortcuts", you should at least say "Show me how you conducted your study."
