The object of this game is to come up with elements that fit in with the phrase: How Do We Really Know? The second object of the game is to provide evidence to support your statements. If no suitable evidence can be presented, then that contribution will be considered something truly unknown.
For example: How do we really know...Gravity exists. Evidence is provided, and we move along.
second example: How do we really know that the easter bunny isn't real? Evidence provided, and so on.
Providing evidence for or against someone else's contribution is highly encouraged, as is extended discussion.
To get the ball rolling, I will provide the opening statement: How do we really know that we are not the only technologically advanced civilization in the galaxy? Apart from probability, there is no evidence that "others" are out there, and probability is not always 100%. Even the innumerable UFO sightings which occur annually don't "prove" that the supposed vehicles come from interstellar space.
I do not know. How do you prove a negative?
The HitchHiker's Guide to The Galaxy lists hundreds of seperate beings that inhabit our galaxy. It is a book written long ago and therefore can't be disputed. They even made a movie about it. How can anyone argue with this logic?
Here's one for everyone...How do we know what our governemnt said happened really happened on 9/11?
It reminds me a bit of the prove WMD do not exist in Iraq. Pretty hard to prove a negative no matter what it is.
How do we know that fluoride in our drinking water provides any benefit?
I haven't done so but I believe you could find enough sites that deal with this subject on a scientific level that you could reach a conclusion. Other than this route one must have faith that what we are told is actually the truth. Considering the influence that the corporations profiting from an individual product are the ones drafting the government press releases and scientific studies about this product, I would think more people might say...Hold on just a damned minute here.. But instead most buy the product and figure, no chance of hanky panky with the present cozy set up is there now? The government is more concerned with my heath thaqn company profits after all.
The nearest galactic object that MAY be able to support life at all, as we know it, is 40 million light years away. Still, the universe is so vast, containing so many galaxies, that the probability is in favor of advanced life forms on some other planet or moon.
How DO we know the Easter bunny doesn't exist? I saw him, in the woods one day. He was very cute!
There's no such thing as a 'sanity clause'. I'm living proof.

Many believers like to say that Atheists should prove that there is no God. Believers should know that existence has to be proved, not the non-existence. If a thing exists, it is possible to prove its existence. So believers should prove the existence of God if he exists. But if they want to do it,...

There are many who are atheist and agnostic because they either don't know or don't believe God exists. Creation tells us that God exists but atheist explain Him away with evolution and Big Bangs. So, my question is, how can God prove Himself to the point where there would be no doubt? The Book of...
