  1. There is no evidence in itself. Evidence is always linked to the ultimate goal. What your goal is depends on what you take as proof. For example, if your goal is “to make it work” (whatever that means), you will consider “when it works” as proof. And if your goal is, for example, “to make the heart melt”, then the proof will be “when the heart melts”. The separation of the concept of proof from the final goal always creates an absurdity. If you stay in the context of the goal and take it into account, you will always distinguish between proven and unproven (“nonsense” in your language; although unproven from the point of view of one end goal, it may well be proved from the point of view of another).

  2. Yuri's answer is generally exhaustive, but I would like to add the following to it:

    Science operates with alienated experience as evidence (which does not limit us to physics, because subjective experience can also be alienated, as all art culture and the humanities are examples of), and alienated experience exists because people generally think in a correlated way. That is, yes, you can always find a point of view from which the most fierce nonsense (like what our friend Vyacheslav writes) will be true, but this point of view will be extremely far from the correlate of people's thoughts, therefore, it is completely alien and inadequate to reality, which, in fact, we see whenever we encounter deniers of anything – since science is designed to follow clearly, consistently and obviously from things that are intuitively understandable to any person, the denier of science consistently has to deny the fundamental foundations of human thinking, even to the point of complete loss of mutual understanding with others.

  3. Irrefutable evidence exists in physics and mathematics.

    All geometry is built on logical propositions and their proofs. For example, how to refute that the sum of the angles of a triangle on a plane is 180 degrees?

    And where did such a strange question come from? Did you really skip school in physics, algebra, and geometry?


  4. Yes, you're right. Even if a proposition is repeatedly verified by independent experiments, this does not prove its complete and eternal truth. For example, people live on the side of a volcano for centuries, it's safe, and then it explodes.

  5. well…but as a science, everything is quite good, the system-facts, arguments, proofs-is enough, they conduct a dialogue, check for truth, formulas, discussions.

    It seems that everything is OK, but if you are talking about everyday cases…then..here the problem is in xenophobia and not wanting to agree with someone.Here Vasya is not wise for 50 years, he spits on your arguments, and sometimes Petya sees 16 years at the root, is capable of self-criticism and wisdom, someone is able to come to a common denominator, someone is not. M?

  6. everything can be challenged, which is basically what happens in the world-contradictions from the word one speech against another speech. Sometimes these contradictions are resolved, removed, sometimes they are simply pushed aside and accumulate with subsequent aggravation. Don't you remember the Fable of the Elephant and the Wise Men? Here our world reminds her of something. The main thing is the condition in which the sages are-they do not see anything, but try to understand or know based on some non-obvious feelings. Therefore, yes-everyone is free to choose their own picture of the world, description and interpretation. However, this does not mean that there is no light in this world after all – it would be somehow “dramatic” and “illogical”. One teacher once said. that the blind follow the blind and fall into the pit. He also added that everything secret will become clear. Someone can still see. He also taught that the Truth is first accepted by faith, and then you begin to see. But so far only you can see for yourself – others don't see it..So it will be until the time of the Apocalypse, which by the way translates as Revelation. In the meantime, we live in a world of “Initiation”)
