My point exactly. It is evidence of a crime, not proof that a crime occurred.
Which I would consider as evidence of paranormal activity, albeit admittedly weak evidence
But you have not determined that. You have made a conscious choice (and probably a correct choice) to give the latter...
If you go back and look, you'll see that it was the CERN comment I was responding to. It is YOU that was trying to change the subject.
I have stated several times in this thread that neutrinos interact, though rarely (and that word "rarely"doesn't do justice to how truly rare such an...
No, it obviously WAS evidence that they didn't exist.
But they did, because evidence is not proof.
By the way, the folk tales were evidence that the apes DID exist.
Just like the empty cartridge shells and blood in my example was evidence that someone was shot, but he turned out to have been...
Nobody is saying something doesn't exist. What I am saying is that absence of evidence is EVIDENCE of absence. NOT proof of absence.
You didn't answer the question, by the way.
So, you will say that unicorns exist?
What about leprechauns?
How do we come to the conclusion that these things are...
No, the conversation was about CERN, not Fermilab.
It's you that's "trying to use" Fermilab here, when the subject was neutrinos interacting with CERN's proton beams.
There is no interaction between the neutrinos streaming in from space and CERN's proton beams.
Do you see why I've said multiple times here that you are confused about the difference between "evidence" and "proof?"
I've not tried to prove a single thing here, yet here you assert that I am. I'm not talking about ANY level of confidence at all. Just the basics of what evidence actually is...
I wasn't wrong.
Neutrinos interact with protons like one tiny pissant interacts with a Blue Whale.
You'll note that the posts were concerning CERN, not some lab set up to actually detect neutrinos.
Apparently, you think that in political polls they ask every citizen the question.
Otherwise, you would know that sampling certainly IS evidence.
Or, maybe you're still confused about the difference between evidence and proof.
