Depends how you define proof. Can you ever say with 100% certainty something doesn't exist? No. Can you prove it beyond a reasonable doubt? Yes. I mean I'm assuming most people here would agree Santa isn't real (sorry if I'm bursting a bubble) but no you can't absolutely prove he isn't.
You also can't 100% prove something is real. Cogito, ergo sum might have helped Descartes sleep at night but can you be 100% that we aren't all part of a complex simulation and that our thoughts aren't just subroutines within our program?

Yeah I think we'll hit 5 easy...

You can't prove a negative, true. And who says the first four pages are real? The Men in Black could have planted them there....

The burden of proof lies with the person making a statement: Prove Santa isn't real is not possible, however, it only takes one observation of Santa (not the common mall variety) to prove Santa's existence.

(blue pill, blue pill....)

Let's agree to keep Karl Popper out of this somewhat boozy discussion, shall we?

Shouldn’t they be Men in Really Dark White?
Just sayin’.

Page 4
What should dominate page 4?
Elvis (aka Ward C)?
Mind Control?
Existentialism?

Before you think I've gone off my nut, just remember how quickly these can get slightly off color.
Ergo, a Brillo pad to keep things clean.

So, if chickens eats chicken do they think to themselves “This tastes like frog legs”?

No idea, I've never interfaced with a cannibalistic chicken.

Good point. Guess I was thinking more philosophical than scientific...

If reality didn't suck so bad, I would live there. I prefer to live with Sabre Steve and Rene Robert in the mid 70's.

If I'm going back then I'm going to convince the Sabres not to pass on Mike Bossy for Ric Seiling so my imaginary friend Ron will stop going on about it and how the Sabres should have won the Cup in 1980.

In my reality Rick Jeanneret does the play by play on brew days and we always get the hops down from "The top shelf where mama keeps the cookies."
