  •  Proof? (none)
    If you were standing in front of a guy with your eyes closed and felt someone hit you then open your eyes to see him still simply standing there what would you conclude?

    What's your proof that he hit you?

    Okay, suppose that there were two guys standing there. One of them is your best friend and the other your worst enemy. When you got hit again with your eyes closed and opened them to see both simply standing there what would you conclude?

    Would you conclude anything?

    One more time. Suppose there are three guys in front of you. One is your best friend, one is your worst enemy and one is a stranger. Go through the same exercise. What would you conclude?

    Would you conclude anything?

    Now repeat the above three exercises but replace "hit" with "chopped off your arm" and tell me that you wouldn't conclude something in each and every case. What do you think a jury would conclude?

    -4.25, -6.87: Someday, after the forest fire of the Right has died we'll say "Whew, I'm happy that's over."
