I’m fairly certain that Scooby Doo and Shaggy have a complete lack of inductive reasoning. How many old men do a hippy and his Great Dane have to unmask until they’re not afraid of monsters anymore?

    I think you lose the ability of inductive reasoning when you’ve been smoking too many “Scooby snacks”

    It also makes you paranoid, which is why they are always scared. ‘Nuff said.

    Todd’s thoughts mirror exactly the argument that famed philosopher David Hume used to support his contention that inductive reasoning is not a valid logical construct. He called it the “Scooby Doo-icto simpliciter”. It rests upon the argument that, were inductive reasoning legitimate, Scooby and Shaggy would have construed that spectral beings are not real, sometime after the 100th mask was ripped from the face of an angry old caretaker. What this argument does not explain is how Scooby and Shaggy seemed never to develop the a priori knowledge that monsters are not real sometime before the age of seven like most other sentient beings.
