Asymmetric burden of proof

Be the 1st to vote.

Steve has to PROVE virus cause disease and illness and are contagious – the opposing side does not have to prove anything.

There’s more of course, but this is worth addressing. The argument seems to be that a thesis can only be debunked if a stronger and more credible one can take it’s place. That not how things work. Consider these examples:
