evidence that is not forensic/impartial here: eye/earwitness accounts; hear-say (e.g. news articles, rumours, stories from relatives or others; films; documentary programmes and articles); readily subject to bias and hear-say origins (e.g.: photos; government-issued statements, reports, logs, identity cards, death certs; encyclopedias; memorial publications.); used in unorthodox courtroom proceedings (e.g.: evidence presented at either the Nuremberg Trials or the Soviet equiv.)

What has Christianity done for the world? Is it worse than "child abuse," with little more than the Crusades for its historical accomplishments (per Richard Dawkins)? Or has it "inspired the highest achievements of Western civilization" (Alvin Schmidt)? I contend that history reveals a narrative far closer to the latter. Should someone disagree with me, let's debate!

Multiple investigations have established Donald Trump as the most prolific liar ever documented. As such, Trump's word ought not to carry any evidentiary weight and any statement of fact by Trump should always require independent corroboration.
