Let Me Remind the World of This Simple Fact: Proof Is Evidence of the Truth of a Fact or Statement

Truth is defined as the cogency of evidence that compels acceptance by the mind of a truth or a fact or the process or an instance of establishing the validity of a statement especially by derivation from other statements in accordance with principles of reasoning. (Merriam-Webster) That means something. It doesn’t mean just handing something to a jury and saying, “Here. This is proof. Believe it.” But that’s what we’re expected to believe when it comes to Iran, Skripal, Salisbury or Douma.
