While on vacation in England, Ralph began to suspect that he had the ability to influence the weather because, despite the gloomy weather report, everywhere he went the sun shone brightly. In the spirit of science, he put this hypothesis to the test. The results were astonishing.
One day while in London, it did rain, but Ralph was inside at a conference during the rain, so he figured that his powers are hampered by concrete and steel. When in Windemere, it poured while out hiking, but he "reasoned" it was because he ate fried bread for breakfast, and fried bread renders his powers useless for approximately 5 hours. It rained the next day, but that was because Ralph did not want the sun to be out badly enough. Evidence against his claim continued to grow, and appeared to be overwhelming to Ralph, but he really liked the idea that he has special powers. Plus, he can easily "refute" any claim against his hypothesis by offering one or more untestable supporting hypotheses. Thus, Ralph has concluded that his powers are real, they just work in mysterious ways. Although the evidence is not strong enough to substantiate Ralph's belief in his super power, he concludes that he needs to have faith, because faith, after all, is a virtue.
