It's a duck, not a swan

Stochastic scribble of the day:

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, and yet does not act like a swan at all, then it most probably is a duck, not a swan.

(Substitute creationism, vitalism, flat earth, etc. for "it", myth or fantasy for "duck", and reality for "swan".)
