comment What's the difference in meaning between "evidence" and "proof"?
"In some fields of enquiry (Law, or the Sciences) a preponderance of evidence, and a lack of evidence to the contrary, would be regarded as a proof of some statement or assertion" - So, if while I were sleeping in a car with an open window and somebody stabbed a pedestrian on the street to death and threw the knife into my car and ran away, and there were no evidence that I was not the murderer, then that would be considered as proof that I was the killer?! But that would be a terribly wrong judgment then!

comment What would be a typical Christian Pacifist response to 'rampant evil' - say in the form of large scale terrorism?
which every believer should be doing: "But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel" (1st Tim. 5:8)

To my understanding, pacifism is keeping and promoting peace if it's possible ("IF IT BE POSSIBLE, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men" - Rom. 12:18). However, if someone is already (about to be) killing someone, then there is no peace here and a simple math comes into play: if he kills my son, this will be an act of evil, and if I kill the one who is going to kill my son, this will also be an act of evil, so the outcome will still be evil. However, if I kill the one who is about to kill my son, I'll do that not out of aggression, but out defense and care for my household,
