from your favorite dictionary, the oxford dictionary.

The sentence on oed that has those synonyms is "They found evidence of his participation in the burglary". In this sentence the burglary is the phenomenon and his participation is the hypothesis. More evidence was found to support the hypothesis, rather than a hypothesis being drawn from evidence. Also note that this a definition related to a law & order / court case scenario.

Sentence 3 on oed is equivalent to what we are talking about here, not sentence one. "The room showed evidence of a struggle"; due to the evidence in the room the hypothesis was drawn that a struggle occurred. Synonyms here: signs, indications, pointers, marks, traces, suggestions, hints.


I think youll agree that this is the meaning of evidence I was using.

I think youll also agree that this is not advancing the discussion topic, if you wish to continue this discussion feel free to P.M. me and we can continue talking about what constitutes evidence scientifically.

Edit: Or on the dictionary 1.2 matches better in this context than 1.1.

In fact you will find that 1.0 matches exactly with the law definition 1.1. But does not match with the more general definition being used by me of 1.2

Lol

I believe our senses we use to observe existence are extreemly limited. Logically, thanks to society advancing, etc, it is more widely accepted to believe in science and facts to create theories than a made up explanation for stuff we don't know anything about.

Yeah though, there could quite possibly be something else we can't see, feel or hear. Demension theories etc are intriguing and make more sense than things like (explaining religion) jaden smiths cult quotes like "what is 6 days to god?". Lol

TLDR: we don't know enough yet to jump to conclusions, but we know enough to realize that fact

I was going to type a philosophical bomb.

But I'll leave it at this, we exist. Our existence propagates questions, which by their inherent inception only we can answer. Now, how out of place is it for this apex predator (With higher reasoning of remorse and sadness etc) to grow past these base logical arguments. How does this being justify itself? Religion, divine purpose/conquest. Even in daily life people justify things, on a minor scale. There is no purpose to life more than we make/excuse ourselves for.



However to placate the religious on my views, absence of proof does not mean proof of absence.
