Interesting Observations – “Proven Beyond Doubt”

It’s possible for something to be “proven beyond doubt” without actually being true. After all, for a long time entire countries believed that the Earth was the center of the solar system, and it didn’t even occur to them to doubt. This is obviously false today, but in that time and in that place an Earth-centered universe was “proven beyond doubt”. Along similar lines is the phrase “That many people can’t be wrong!”, which, when you think about it and how often that isn’t true, sounds too foolish even to argue against.
