Please don't use the word "Proof," or make a statement that sounds like you have some if you don't have any real evidence.

Look I am just as skeptical as the next guy, and I am very interested to find out the truth. Its just hard with so many conflicting reports, all sporting the Proof tag.

Even Absolut is but 80 proof.

When "Yes" is used for "No".

And, "No" for "Yes" language ceases to have meaning and communication breaks down. Words are important when you attempt to communicate. Poor use effects your credibility whether you ultimately are right or wrong in your statements. How do you think these double speak politicians get elected (besides rigged votes)? The result of word choice works in the inverse as well establishing credibility for some where none exists.

I agree 100%

Here is a good example by Fishyculture:

Why-I-Believe......more accurate and to the point.

Proof is

evidence sufficient to establish a thing as true, or to produce belief in its truth.

There can be fake proof or real proof and then there is speculation.

What we have is ppl showing evidence that they believe to be proof of what they believe happened based on their speculation. They can be either right or wrong!

What I think the OP wants is the proof to actually be proving their argument/speculation.

I've seen a bunch of post's with evidence that don't prove their arguments, they are just assumptions.

Up to the reader

a more truthful title would be:

"evidence that shows something that I believe to prove my conclusions without a doubt"..

bit long winded, and not very exciting. I just assume the word proof always means that, unless of course, I agree, in which case I read as fast as I can. ;)

Just open the box and see

IE:

OMG OMG there are guys with headphones and tan pants. It must be black ops agents.

There is proof that there were guys with tan pants and headphones.

It must be black ops agents is an assumption.

Assumption....

Kind of like....

The brothers are the bombers? Assumption.
The brothers are Islamists? Assumption.
The bombing is related to foreign terrorist activities? Assumption.

You give Fox, CNN and the rest of the media a free pass but anytime a DP'er makes an assumption they are a conspiracy whackjob?

Don't be a hypocrite.

I did

not say the MSM was right either. Assumption.

No, no...

Fox and CNN dont deserve a free pass. They are just as prone to putting out information without conclusive evidence as infowars and the daily Paul. Only difference is the establishment owns the MSM. Doesn't make everyone else right though.

All I know is I'm not seeing

All I know is I'm not seeing any "proof" it was a false flag? I am however interested in learning more about this Sadi National.

Got to agree.

Far too many believe that their opinion of circumstances is "proof" and that their interpretation of evidence, however specious the evidence, is truth to the highest degree. Unfortunately it seems that a significant percentage of posters at the DP may be from that camp.

I will use any word I want...

I hope you do the same...

Good. And you're welcome to.

Just not here.

Strange reply...

When promoting freedom of speech...Hmmm?

There's nothing strange about it.

You are free to do whatever you want, just not on my dime. Nothing strange about that.

Speak freely all you want. But because this is my website, I have control over whether you'll say it here or not.

Posting here is a privilege, not a right.

Yet even stranger...

I get down voted by all the minions of followers for saying that I am willing to use the word "proof", or any other word that comes with free speech...Yet I have never been asked, in the past nor the present, to behave differently on the DP...I'm not super controversial, and I am just kind of boring...Yet when I try to promote freedom of speech, with a comment, I get a dictatorial ass chewing...Just seems strange to me...But as you said...It's your dime, so you make the rules...

Any observation here is

Any observation here is proof, and any questioning of such a declaration is clear evidence that he questioner is a paid government troll.

Example:
"Look, a guy with a backpack and short hair." = Irrefutable proof of government conspiracy.

"Might they have had undercover cops working the event?" = Irrefutable evidence of NWO operative posting on the board

The point of observational studies is to discover possible clues

Occom Razor slices off everything superfluous hopefully leaving cause for sound judgments.

Daily Paul has the finest team of razors ever assembled. Rarely right perhaps, but that's a lofty goal.

I don't think you understand

These fools on here think the bullshit they are posting IS proof.
