Absense of Evidence?

I always enjoy thought-provoking materials.

Consider it as a good way to tease the brain:mrgreen:

And this morning, I stumbled upon this interesting “proof”:

Even without scrolling further down, I could already guess this proof would be used in tackling problems such as:

  • Gods
  • Aliens
  • Crop circles
  • Miracles
  • Etc…

And indeed, I hit the nail right on the head!

So I guess it’s a good thing to always question what are we believed in, and why believe them that way. And oh, time to review the probability theory again…

:mrgreen:
