I always accept answers/posts that are logical (mathematically or philosophically). But here (and in some other forums or generally in non-exact sciences) there are questions that you can almost prove it in very detailed answer and also you can almost disprove/reject it in very detailed answer.
For example, recently someone posted the question Is there video evidence that Palestinians avoided targetting civilians during the Oct 7 attacks on Israel?
Some users responded using known resource/news to answer it "NO".
But I found a lot of evidence that shows there are more than a handful of exceptions.
Some users accused me (now deleted) of playing with words. Another user commented that my answer is not acceptable, arguing:
They didn't kill the girls because they tried to kidnap them.
If so, isn't the question trivial? Because there are hundreds of women in the captivity of Hamas, which shows that they did not kill them.
Any evidence that can support the question affirmatively one can repeat the above argument to weaken/reject/disprove the answer.
Posts like this confuse me.
How should we answer questions that can be both yes and no? Wouldn't it be better to ask "Is there ANY ..." that would be less ambiguous?
