What is empirical evidence?

If a lie is spread all around the world and many people die, does that make a lie true? How do you know if something is true? How do you treat your neighbor? If there is a disagreement does the wise person only listen to one side of an issue? Can you know the truth by being ignorant to the facts? My friends I thank for hearing me out or reading what I have written, I have shared what a lie is and what a lie looks like, many people I feel care very much about when a person commits perjury a crime that should be punished. For those that don't know what a lie is and refuse to look and find the truth I have to wonder?

Me to, but I have often noticed that there are a lot of people who go through life with their head stuck in the sand. Do they think they will escape the calamity just because they don't look at it?

They can pretend that what they did never hurt a soul, unfortunately you and I and many others know differently.

It is also good to read from you again... This cold weather really takes the life out of me when I have to work in it... I was so exhausted yesterday I decided to wait until today to return. I know the most important person to take care of is me, after me I will care for the others that care about me. Thank You for being here and caring. Love and Hugs

No a wise person listens to both paryties. but then you have to have the evedence of the lie there in front of them also. Now only reading your side I for one can see where the lie came from and the hurt it has caused you. I also wonder!

Empirical evidence is evidence that is gathered from experience, as opposed to theoretical, non-empirical evidence, that comes from speculation, with no experience. Non-empirical evidence may sound good at times, and people often accept this because it "makes sense" to them. But without the actual experience that brings empirical evidence, we never know for sure. Science is based on the accumulation of empirical evidence.

Thank you I also had the written material in the police report which should be facts of the case, instead of revealing the truth, a lie was perpetrated and permitted to prosecute another innocent victim by a lying Telford Detective named Randal S. Floyd.

Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between a lie and the trues, but like they say"May the truth prevail".

Sometimes the truth is easy to see, the whole problem is that we have to open our eyes??? *Looks around*
