Experience proves nothing

Experience by itself proves nothing.polarbearsleeping If a man doubts whether he is dreaming or waking, no experiment can solve his doubt, since every experiment itself may be part of the dream. Experience proves this , or that, or nothing, according to the preconceptions we bring to it.

C.S. Lewis, "Miracles," God in the Dock (Eerdmans: 1970) 25-26.
