Burden of proof is soooooooooooooooooooooooo easy to understand.  How can you not get it?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burden_of_proof


Clearly it is the REers coming to the FLAT Earth Society who are making the allegations that what we believe is wrong.  If you're coming here to prove us wrong then you have to prove us wrong.  There is no doubt the burden of proof is on the REers.

I am sick of this notion that FEtards continue to spout. Listen shitforbrains, the FET refutes over a thousand years of evidence that points to the earth being round. I'd say that as you are the ones that are saying that RE is bunk you are the ones that must put up not us.

Why is that? I could just as well say that if you say the Earth is round, so YOU have to back it up with proof. Just because the Round Earth Model is more generally accepted by the public doesn't mean that it's the one generally accepted in this society.

When you make a website, or anything else for that matter (cult, religion political party, clan, discussion group ect.)

People will expect you to be able to prove that your point of view is not bullshit.

Ex:. People go into a cardgame forum and ask, "Hey guys, show me why you think Vampiric dragon is not a tournament worthy card" and people will explain with playtests results and game theory why it isn't.

You go into a fighting game forum and ask, "hey guys, show me why you think that SNK games are better than Capcom ones" People will show, through movies, game theory, per characte option and character balancing what their point of view is based on, and why it is valid.

Same thing with anything else. They won't go "no sir, you came to our site, we're not showing anything to you, YOU show us that Card X, or game X is not what we say it is. That would be seen as snobish to most people and would just alienate newcomers.

It's not realistic to think that people will come to your forum and NOT expect you to prove that your point of view is valid.

That's not a valid example. The CORRECT way to put that example would be: You go into a Vampiric Dragon tournament forum and tell them that it is not a tournament-worthy card. Obviously, they're going to ask you why you think that, and you are in the position where you have to prove it.

We do prove our point of view, but you have to give us something to prove, otherwise we can't prove a damned thing. Basically, the only way to counter you coming and saying, "The Earth is round" would be for us to say, "Nope, the Earth is flat." But hey, you guys aren't happy with that either. The point isn't for us to NOT prove our point EVER, it's that in order for us to DO so, you have to bring up the issues, and tell us what's wrong FIRST, otherwise we're stuck in a cycle of argument that is just plainly illogical.

Honest to God, what part of this completely logical concept do you guys not understand. IT'S SIMPLE! Freaking Christ...

I don't know if you've noticed but we're talking about who the actual burden of proof falls upon.  There are plenty of times where the burden of proof doesn't fall on you, but you might try and prove what you're saying anyway - such as the example you gave.  That's great but it's got very little to do with what we're actually talking about - which is which side of the arguement is actually obliged to prove their statements.

If the Flat Earth Society were actually a repuatable scientific website attempting to promote to the world the fact that the Earth is actually flat then the burden of proof would definitely be on us.  However sadly that is not the case.  The Flat Earth Society makes no efforts at all to promote our views or our website.  We are not trying to convince anybody that what we say is actual literal fact.  In fact most of what we do is defend ourselves and make in-jokes at the expense of REers.  

I think it's pretty clear that if you're coming here telling us that we're wrong you have to prove why we're wrong.  If we seek you out and tell you that you're wrong we'd equally have to prove why you're wrong.

Yeah exactly - I don't understand what your point is or how it relates to my quote.

When I said "you" I didn't mean "you when you're on this forum" - I mean that in other discussions generally the burden of proof won't always fall on a general "you".  And in fact you totally took that comment out of context because the point I was making was that there are times when a person doesn't have the burden of proof but tries to prove their point anyway.
