    I'm confused. I know something went bang, but I can't follow the mad careening that went on.
    "History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government".
    -Thomas Jefferson

    Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

    History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.

    DD, dont do it!!!
    Back away from the thread.
    I read it for a bit and it made my cranky go way up through the roof, and my eyes itch, and my ears were really hot.
    I think I'm allergic.
