    We've flushed him out, boys! Bigfoot can run but he can't hide. Our rovers will hound him from one pole to the other.

    Hmmm...the more I look into this case, the more convincing the evidence becomes. A little research revealed a much clearer photo of bigfoot on Mars. Conclusive proof, I'd say.

    I think we can say that the conclusion P (with P being 'bigfoot lives on Mars'😉 is true. This means that not-P is necessarily false. Isn't that right, Dr.S?

    I would concur that the alternate hypothesis (i.e. bigfoot lives on Mars) certainly seems to be supported.

    He would have difficulty breathing on Mars. Maybe Neptune would be better if he could stand the cold.

    Discuss.

    "P implies NOT-(NOT-P)" is a tautology. This means that for any proposition P, P being true necessarily entails that the negation of P is false. Accepting this, one should not psychologically endorse P but refuse to deny NOT-P.

    In this specific instance, you are correct. "Bigfoot lives" being true does in fact entail that "Bigfoot does not live" is false.

    However, as far as I know, you are still for some inexplicable reason woefully confused and fail to endorse the formally equivalent entailment in the case where P is taken to be "God does not exist" rather than "Bigfoot lives." Why you think the actual propositional content is relevant, when a tautology (and a very elementary one at that) is what is governing the crux of the matter, has always perplexed me.

    Good solid photgraphic scientific evidence some would say. Although you connot see it's feet so to call him a "Bigfoot" is probably a random presumption based on an extrapolation of current theory regrading the Sasquatch genus on Earth.

    Perhpas I can help further the confusion by proposing a two tail hypothesis that 1) women are from a differnt planet to men...

    And that 2) God has his own detached planet with some acreage:

    Hey scherzo, Bigfoot was a Socialist.

    Why do you think he has such big feet?
    He's really "down to earth".

    Or, em, "Down to Mars" as the case may be.

    Bigfoot doesn't exist but how do you know he would be a socialist?
