No, it's not quite the same. There's an interesting interview of Douglas
Adams on the topic which pretty much conveys what I would consider to be
a sensible view here:
I don’t accept the currently fashionable assertion that any view is
automatically as worthy of respect as any equal and opposite view. My
view is that the moon is made of rock. If someone says to me “Well, you
haven’t been there, have you? You haven’t seen it for yourself, so my
view that it is made of Norwegian Beaver Cheese is equally valid” - then
I can’t even be bothered to argue. (...) All opinions are not equal.
Some are a very great more robust, sophisticated and well supported in
logic and argument than others.
