We are incredulous when something contradicts our normal experience and beliefs. We feel skeptical and might say something like 'that can't be right.' Our brains have evolved to make quick decisions. You can't afford to spend minutes accessing whether you are in danger or not. Survival demands an instant decision and action.That immediate feeling of skepticism pushes us to reject the premise. The fallacy occurs when we base our conclusion on that immediate incredulity - I can't believe it, therefore, it is wrong.
