This word isn't from this forum but rather from general conversation and news24: evidence

It's a very abstract version of an archaic word which was also called evidence. The modern version, especially when uttered by religious people, means [very weak and unconvincing] anecdotal, intuitive or [flawed] a priori/a posteriori proof for a belief or conviction. The squares brackets are my annotations.

Lets use it in a sentence: "atheists cannot ignore all the evidence staring them right in the face forever [for god's existence]!
