"Evidence" from Wikipedia Evidence, broadly construed, is anything presented in support of an assertion.[1] This support may be strong or weak. The strongest type of evidence is that which provides direct proof of the truth of an assertion. At the other extreme is evidence that is merely consistent with an assertion but does not rule out other, contradictory assertions, as in circumstantial evidence.

" intended to create belief by showing surrounding circumstances which logically lead to a conclusion of fact" is the LEGAL definition of Circumstantial Evidence, not from wiki (which isn't the most reliable source of information, btw). Your own post states "direct proof of the truth of an assertion". Eyewitness testimony is not direct proof, nor is it the truth.

How creatively you clipped that sentence.

I could have added the entire post, but doing so would have been a waste of both time and energy. I could have made it bold, but you would have made a similar, if not the same comment. Taking the entirety of what you copied and pasted, or just the little portion that I did does not invalidate what I said, nor does it actually support your claim that you know what evidence is. Spin it all you want, deflect and ignore. That's what a troll does.

80% is about 30% too much. Unsure would probably be the best position to take on this.

It was just one sentence that said The strongest type of evidence is that which provides direct proof of the truth of an assertion.

Again, wiki is not a reliable source, it doesn't even use a dictionary to give the definition.

But you forget that we're now living in Bizarro World, where The National Enquirer should get a Pulitzer. *facepalm*
