Definite definitions: Proof and Evidence:
Words such as proof, evidence, truth, propaganda, and lies are common words on ATS. Many times, members claim to have 'proof' and 'evidence', and
maybe even the 'truth'. Many people go out of their way to look at a thread claiming 'truth' and 'proof', when it is some link to somewhere, a
youtube video, or a quote. Many cases, there is no actual 'proof', 'evidence', or 'truth', but it might actually be more 'propaganda' and
I want to make this a place where members can come and see what it means to claim to have 'evidence' and 'proof'. I want to know also what ATS
thinks of 'proof' and 'evidence'.
I want to here us as a members definitions too, to clear it up when we 'claim' to have 'proof' or 'evidence'.
Proof: factual truth that is widely accepted with evidence backing it up, and so that the evidence is widely accepted and accessible; A collection of
evidence backing up a theory, and proving it.
Evidence: A part of Proof; a fact that is truth; a factual claim
Yup, that's right, I will not accept it as proof unless it is a widely believed in theory
I call out to other members to examine themselves before claiming they have 'truth' 'proof' or 'evidence'. It is a drawing, more people look at
things claiming they have truth.
I also want to hear from other members about their 'proofs' and 'evidences' and how they define it.
*A Note To Staff*
It might be helpful if in the ATS handbook or thread that contains some important definitions for new members and for veterans.
