No Evidence Vs Evidence
Let's say we come across a dead body, perhaps a scene of a crime, we see a variety of things like ruffled clothes, some bruises, etc...And a variety of people draw a seemingly infinite number of conclusion based on these things, a nearly infinite series of explanations.

Since all these explanations incorporate these observations, could we accuse any of these explanations of having "no evidence" at all? Or is it only the true and accurate conclusion that has evidence, while the other ones don't?

Could you rephrase that in English please ?

Maybe just leave the corpse to the police and professional investigators and forensic teams?

RE: No Evidence Vs Evidence
Did you get a chance to read the thread with Free discussing "abscence of evidence" vs "evidence of abscence"?

One is not like the other if you plan on equating a murdered body to an absent god.

If not carry on.

What is your point Tomasia?

Evidence of what? The point of these phrases generally used is about having evidence for a hypothesis or claim, not just some generic statement of "evidence"

Some hypotheses have more value than others insofar as they comport with and explain reality.
