really? yes, really.
hey what ever you have to tell yourself to make yourself belive the lie, obviously reason has no part of it.

and good luck arguing that one in court.

Vercingetorix - have you stopped to think about why, in court cases, people are found guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt", rather than "with absolute certainty"?

One reason - no one would ever be convicted, because you can never show with absolute certainty who committed a crime.

To quote Schraf's comment:

No, evidence leads to confidence and reliability, not absolute, 100% proof.

In the world of science, this is the case. That is why every great concept has "theory" in front of it - because it is not known with absolute certainty.

You can call it a lie if you like, but that doesn't make it so. You called some else immature above, I suggest you look at the content of your own posts in this thread.

I also suggest you learn a bit about the scientific method.
