178. I can tell you myself what I would have said.
Nothing. Why? Because that is opinion. Had I said anything it would have likely been about possible "leads." The difference in what you said in this post and what you said in your OP? Your OP is claiming fact you refuse to prove and think because you say the opposite of some it "magically" becomes proof. You and laconicsax are exhibiting the SAME attitude as the "religious" POV you are against; "Can't prove it?, doesn't matter, it is what I believe. Nanny-nanny-boo-boo!" It is clear neither of you understand that lack of evidence simply means there is NO EVIDENCE, it does NOT mean something didn't/doesn't exist. You can draw conclusions and speculation based on the lack of evidence but it still does not mean your claims are fact and more than some who claims Moses did exist and the Exodus occurred as it did in the Bible. You both seem to think you understand the principles of logic, but this "debate" has shown you do not as both of you still cling to the notion that a negative cannot be proved and therefore, you can use negative statements as fact which you can then turn around and claim you don't have to prove because your stating the opposite of an argument (for someone who isn't even here) is therefore, proof. If you can't back up your facts, don't claim them to be true.
