The reason I brought up "the fallacy of appealing to ignorance" is because Gerry said "You say it's fake... .prove it."

Trying to prove a document does not exist is near impossible.

The notes that you have provided in your link were not included in your original post. They do however state:

"However, there is not yet absolute certainty about the authenticity of this document. It still may be the case, as some have suggested, that this is an urban myth made up in the 1970s."

He also says that he got a phone call from an 85 year old woman that remembers seeing these when she was 7 -- not exactly a great source.

The link Gerry provided pretty much says that this list cannot be verified.

I`ve also provided a link to snopes that supports it`s an urban myth.

My point is that this has been around for years now. If it was the list of rules was that common, then an original copy of

Rodin, yes we understand that principle but generally it's used for something that is unexpected. For example if I say my 1995 Chevy was built in Michigan and you say "prove it" is quite a different thing than if I say it was specially built in France and you asked for proof. The Chevy built in Michigan in 95 is with reason of what we know. Why would you think it wasn`t built in Michigan? Actually proving this particular car was built in Michigan may be very difficult. Do you see the distinction? So I think what folks and myself are saying is that these rules are within reason for what we know. Also, read the notes at the bottom of the link

Gerry, the burden of proof falls on the person making the original claim. I was being a critic of that claim. Alex Michalos, in "Principles of Logic" states: "If this responsibility or burden of proof is shifted to a critic, the fallacy of appealing to ignorance is committed"

That sounds like an interesting book, I'll definitely keep an eye open for it.
