Burden of Proof -
- the obligation to prove one's assertion.
Today's blog is about the burden of proof in the Bigfoot Community. I see it all the time, someone posts what they claim is a photo of Bigfoot, someone questions them about how do you know it's a Bigfoot, did you take comparison photos? The person that is making the claim about the photo suddenly gets defensive and screams that they know what it is and everyone that don't believe them can take a flying hike off the cliff.
Let's take a look at the facts here.
The person posted a photo on Facebook to the public at large, making claims that it's a Bigfoot. This is the assertion of the person who posted it, and accordingly, the burden of proof is their's to show it is a Bigfoot, not the person asking for comparison photos.
I see that a lot too, the person who truly has the burden of proof upon them, tries to turn the tables on those asking for more evidence, claiming that they either have to supply the burden of proof, or that they are just mean individuals who are jealous of the person's success in the field.
This usually ends up causing another issue that creates what is called sheeple.
People compared to sheep in being docile, foolish, or easily led.
This is caused by Peer Pressure
