hi guys

i found this page on wiki:Argument from ignorance

somewhere in there there are two subtitles called absence of evidence and evidence of absence.i think that this might be connected to the Cowper quote!

Hi;

Perhaps you should change your signature?

I have a few pdf's of the process but they are long winded and boring. My answer would amount to copying and pasting with some clever jokes on the side. How would that help you?

Okay, then go ahead. Just make sure you mention where you got it from or else.

Hi Stefy

I misunderstood. I thought you wanted a new sig because of what you had discovered. Never mind. Still interested whether you know the book.

Wow, I thought it was bad that it took me 30 seconds to get it when I first read it. But now I feel quite proud of myself. (Once in a lifetime) But you know Stefy, your second line signature always makes me sad. Probably due to my father yelling the same thing at me the other day. Inspirational!

Then the next day my mum told me the exact same thing.

Oh, wait... she said I was hopeless. Meh, same thing basically.
