What can we prove?

Evidence mounts in the strange case of proving that Kevin Bacon, the man who is seven degrees from everyone, has never been to the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia.

The hypothesis: Kevin Bacon has NEVER visited the Liberty Bell

Evidence:

Exhibit A: Kevin Bacon standing in front of a VW beetle – not the Liberty Bell

Exhibits B-E: The Liberty Bell with accompanying visitors, none of which are Kevin Bacon

Exhibit F: The Liberty Bell, yet again, without Kevin Bacon anywhere in sight

Conclusion: Hypothesis accepted – Kevin Bacon has NEVER been to the Liberty Bell

 

What’s wrong with this argument?

Special thanks to Paul Offit, MD, whose Coursera Vaccines Class inspired this investigation
