    Hello everybody. This thread will apply to your everyday life, and it will hopefully wake you into observing yourself and your life. This thread can be applied to many others on TSR, e.g. Is Bin Laden dead? Does God Exist? Was Mohammad a peado? Was 9/11 an inside job? There will be answers in this thread that completely refute any conclusion that the prevously mentioned threads have come to.

    So, as per the title:

    I have 1 million GBP cash in a chest. This chest sits right next to me as I type this thread.

    This is my claim. You can say that the burden of proof falls on me to prove it, in which case this wouldn't be a very interesting thread. Now I am asking you, the reader:

    How can you prove to YOURSELF, beyond all reasonable doubt, that I am telling the TRUTH? How can you prove beyond all reasonable doubt that I have £ 1 million in a chest?

    There are no real right or wrong answers, people will accept whichever answer makes logical sense to them. I stress to anyone who would like to answer: Be logical. There is nothing wrong with being wrong.
    You don't, you're a cat :ahee:

    See the OP's other posts and threads. He's a troll. If not, then he's just a prick.

    Post a picture, which would at least give some evidence. Although I guess it could still be photoshopped/ the notes could be fakes.
    Perhaps you could explain logically why you have all that money sitting in a chest on your desk rather than gaining interest in the bank, where it came from, and why you feel the need to tell TSR about it.
    Personally, I think the best option to convince me would be to post me said chest, thus allowing me to test each note...

    Pics or it didn't happen.

    Please post a picture.

    If you post a picture, I believe you have it. If you don't post a picture, you don't have it.
    These are fair requests but I'm sorry to say that I don't have a photo.

    However, that I do not have a photo tells you one thing:

    I do not have a photo.
    ___________

    Also, asking for a photograph in my eyes is not beyond reasonable doubt. The photo could be of someone else's million pound chest, or it could be completely doctored altogether. If a photograph is beyond reasonable doubt in your eyes then fine, but not in mine.

    that's nice. I don't mind being a prick in your eyes but I cannot take the insult of troll. What about the other threads have been "trolling" ?

    Perhaps I can arrange a visit to your place then, where I might view the briefcase?

    Incidentally, why don't you have a photo? Do you not have access to photoshop?

    I see. Yourself and maybe a couple of other posters have come to this conclusion:

    That it must be witnessed to exist - to be true - to you.

    Well there is no real way to prove that you have a chest. Even if you posted a picture of it with your face in, we don't know that you are the OP. So we have to go on what we can get.

    Because of that, I believe you don't have a chest.

    Which you obviously don't, as you're telling a public forum you have £1m in your house.

    Btw, I just stole your chest. Prove to me that I didn't steal your chest.

    You seem to be confusing our interest in meta-philosophy and the determination for us to get our hands on your money...

    "We have to go on what we can get". This kind of disturbs me but also brings something I've noticed about myself. It's like we kind of WANT to believe that what we're hearing is true.

    Yes you have not been given any evidence whatsoever to take my claim on as the truth.

    It may be obvious to you that I'm lying, but we do not know whether we are awake or dreaming in the present moment. Sometimes it's just not that obvious that one is being lied to, especially when one's emotions are being engaged.
    __________
    Sorry to be pedantic, but it's about proving to yourself, not to others. So I can still see my chest here.

    Advise us of the currency and denomination of the notes and the length and breadth and height on the bundle making up the million, also advise the insurance premium you now pay to hold that sum in cash. Further advise what banking protocols were required to uplift the million in cash.

    Answering these should give a reader an inclination as to the veracity of the original statement.

    In which case you will conclude that there is indeed a god and he exists outside of the material world. Or do you have a decent reason to reject my claim?

    I can't think of a specific example, but there would probably be a way to infer that you were telling the truth by watching what you do etc, and observing you to see how you acted in various situations?

    "Everything is true because you can't prove with logical certainty that I don't have a million pounds in a chest".

    Yep. You're right. There must be a god.
