Burden Of Proof
12/2/2015 6:47:33 PM

When you make a claim, back it up with evidence, if you don't have proof then don't state it as fact. Anyone can make any claim at any time, but it's only a matter of time until someone says "well proove it then". If you cannot then your position will only fall. I'm sure everyone who comes to this site has, at some time or other, been faced with the task of trying to prove someone wrong when they refuse to provide any evidence to back themselves up. Proving something does not exist is far harder than proving that something does exist.

Want an example? Anyone who makes a claim without evidence is a smelly poopy head.

Now any time you (or anyone else) makes a claim without evidence you will need to stop everything and try to convince everyone that you're not a smelly poopy head. Good luck with that.
