Big Pawn: The evidence?
A few pieces of this and that, plus a <LOT> of wild imagination is the *evidence*.
Let's not conflate the *wild imagination* with the evidence.
"Where's the evidence?"
"There's tons of evidence!"
"Where is it?"
"Everyone knows about the evidence!"
"So where is it?"
"Ask John, he has the evidence and wrote a book on it"
"Hey John, where's the evidence?"
"There are mountains of evidence!"
"John, okay, where is the evidence?"
"Go to college dumbazz!"
"I went to college, John, where's the evidence?"
"Mountains and mountains of evidence!"
"John, you said that already. Where did you get the evidence for your book?"
"I got the evidence for another guy named John. Here is his book. Ask him."
"Hi John2, where is the evidence?"
"It's science, go away."
"But John2, where can I see the science?"
"You can't because you're an idiot."
"Look, John2, I want to see the evidence. "
"The evidence is well documented!"
"I know, John2, but where exactly is it?"
"John2, what exact does that mean?"
"It means there are mountains of evidence!"
"Where did you get your evidence from, John2, to write your book?"
"I got it from another guy named John that is from the generation before me. Here is his book."
"Hey John3, where is the evidence?"
"It's science. It's well documented. Mountains and mountains of evidence."
"John3, how do you know that these little bands of "hunter-gatherers" were living in caves and there was little reason for reasoning early on?"
"Why? Because of science! There is lots of evidence. Well documented."
"Like lots of it! Why don't you read a book, if you know how to read!"
"But John3, just because you found an arrow head in a cave doesn't mean that people didn't reason. How do you get that?"
"I got it from another guy named John! And he's a scientist! So you lose"
The emperor has no clothes.
