Heisenberg Principle of the Standards of Evidence - Correction

In a prior topic, I was talking about the "Heisenberg Principle of the Standards of Evidence." I realized that I was missing a critical aspect that would actually make it relevant to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. And actually, that's not even the right concept. I'm not talking about whether the position and velocity of a creationist can be determined at the same time.

What I meant was Schrödinger's Cat. In this case, I'm conjuring up a metaphorical concept - Schrödinger's Standards of Evidence.
The Schrödinger's Standards of Evidence is when the standards of evidence that a creationist is employing is indeterminate until one observes whether the topic the creationist is addressing conflicts with their religious world view.

To be fair, the two concepts are similar in nature, so you can understand how I'd mix the two up, right?
