Yes Cassini, I am aware of the cyclic motion that is created by my statement.
My point was, that making wild spurious statements/claims, whether it be "Levitating Elephants" or "UFO's" will only ever be theories in the minds of the imaginative. People are insistent in making these statements real, and there are so many people on this site that want them to be real, that proof becomes inconsequential.
And when you're trying to convince someone that what you saw is real, replying "Prove I didn't" does fill me with the greatest of confidence regarding the source.
No proof, No truth.

Have you ever seen a million dollars? No? Then how could it exist....

Typically, pseudoscience fails to meet the criteria met by science generally (including the scientific method), and can be identified by one or more of the following rules of thumb:
- by asserting claims without supporting experimental evidence;
- by asserting claims which contradict experimentally established results;
- by failing to provide an experimental possiblity of reproducible results;
- by asserting claims that violate falsifiability; or
- by violating Occam's Razor (the principle of choosing the simplest explanation when multiple viable explanations are possible); the more egregious the violation, the more likely.
Pseudoscience is distinguishable from revelation, theology or spirituality in that it claims to offer insight into the physical world by 'scientific' means (i.e., most usually in accordance with the scientific method). Systems of thought that rely upon "divine" or "inspired" knowledge are not considered pseudoscience if they do not claim to be scientific or to overturn well established science.
That's ridiculous...that would be like me saying that "I think Kokas green elephants theory is correct" so...by your account...it's proof enough for it to be real.

Well my proof that they don't exist is simple, you have no evidence to prove they do exist.
