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
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?
