Irrefutable means one cannot prove the opposite of what has been asserted.--

no- I'm afraid it doesn't mean that. It means that one cannot contest the facts put forward.  Sometimes there situations where one can prove one of two opposite positions.

Read your post again, then tell us what point you were trying to make.

"Irrefutable is an impossible standard."

Black_Beard said...No it is not. That is what most convictions for crimes is built on.

Incorrect.  The standard, as I mentioned, is beyond a reasonable doubt.  Irrefutable means impossible to disprove.  

Black_Beard said...

Shoot someone while someone else watches and then relates the scenario in court, and your lawyer cannot make the witnessed event seem doubtful and you basically have irrefutable evidence.

:-)  Allow me to introduce you to my twin brother.  Which one of us fired that shot?

"Hmm- ask a lawyer that. Ask a prosecutor that. They've been putting people to jail for crimes based on that standard for two centuries. It can be as simple as having a lot of evidence that clearly isn't faked, and a provable crime."

I have never said otherwise. But what does "clearly isn't faked" evidence mean? Is that like evidence so obvious its reality cannot be questioned?

"Trump meets those standards."

TyrranisoreRUMP has no standards.

Have someone read it to you and maybe draws some pictures.

What is reasonable doubt based upon?

I will give you a hint since you seem to be missing to point. It begins and ends with the letter "e"

 

":-)  Allow me to introduce you to my twin brother.  Which one of us fired that shot?"

The one that will be hung.   ;-)

It means the evidence is true, and relates the truth. Unlike the deep fake videos that Breitbart puts out.

Is not another term for evidence that is true is evidence that is irrefutable?

Breitbart is dead.

It's still being quoted, so clearly it is not dead. They just changed editors.

No. people are convicted on this standard. "Beyond a reasonable doubt"

Not irrefutable. Give it up. YOu've been caught trying to change the rules of the game.
