Of “The Burden of Proof”



True and Reasonable

“The Burden of Proof” versus “The Flying Spaghetti Monster”


I enjoyed the discussion between both of you.
First I read about burden of proof on “trueandreasonable ”; then on “unconfirmedabsolutes”. You both are fine and civilized people. You discussed it very nicely.No ridiculing and no belittling the other; this is how the discussion should be made.

I appreciate it.

Thanks and regards to both of you.

    Thank you for the kind words,

    I try to be civil Often when it comes to politics or religion the human brain wants to turn off and resort to name calling and ridicule. I try to prevent that with varying degrees of success. I’m glad to see someone observing thought unconfirmedabsolutes and I did a fairly good job of it here.

      I really appreciate it.

      In a debate where both sides are pitched against one another to win from the other if one or both sides sometimes resort to little name calling, it is understandable but in a discussion to ridicule or deride, I think it is most inhumane to do it.

      If one side does it; that indicates, in my opinion, that it is short of reasons and good arguments; and virtually it has lost its case.
      The other side is morally fine if it wants to continue with its reasoning but deletes the foul words yet keeps the reason content intact.

      If the first party still persists with the same attitude; then the second party should withdraw from the discussion for sometime or some days; till the sentiments are cooled down and return to normal.

      Then the discussion could be resumed.
