Oh yeah, that whole regeneration/telekinesis/gravity/electricity thing is just basic biology.  Anyone can see that.  Just yesterday, my cat used his gravity control powers to hover in midair all day.  So annoying!

It's also a well-known fact that if one straps buttered toast (butter side down) onto the bellies of cats and drop them, one has made a perpetual motion machine. :D

Unfortunately, conviction doesn't necessarily increase with knowedge.  In fact, the most knowledgeable generally lack the conviction of the least knowledgeable.  As the saying goes, "the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt."

Experts frequently underrate their knowledge and hedge their conclusions (making it appear less certain than it really is to the general public AKA jury's still out syndrome), while idiots overrate their knowledge and tellingly make no provision for being wrong (making their conclusions seem more certain than they really are because of the mistaken public belief that lack of doubt is the hallmark of a sure thing rather than a true idiot)
