For some (strange) reason, whenever this subject comes up, it is ALWAYS
suggested the the person who feels that there IS a difference in sound
should be the one with the burden of proof. WHY? do the people who think
there IS NO difference outnumber the ones who do, thereby constituting a
majority and therefore "winning" the case.
I propose that if one applies the LAW, it can justly be construed that
the burden of proof could just as easily be applied to the people who think
there IS NO difference.
In other words, if (I) feel there IS a difference, it is up to the
person who feels there IS NO difference to prove I am wrong.
Conversely, if (I) feel there IS NO difference, it is up to the person
who feels there IS a difference to prove I am wrong.
I don't know why the burden of proof is a "One-Way" street here? If one
faction outnumbers the other, it is ASSumed that they are the winner
(because it has been "in-grained" in our minds that MAJORITY rules). This
is flawed reasoning.
IF it was proven that there WAS a difference, AND the people who felt
that there WAS a difference only numbered 29.63%, They would STILL be
right. Also , if it was proven that there WAS NO difference, and the people
who felt that there WAS NO difference only numbered 19.75%, They would
STILL be right.
Now for the large washtub of kerosene...(I) think there is a difference
but I see no reason to argue either point. Work on "your" sound &
circumvent the whole enchilada.
