Is Take_that_Sputnick1 retarded?

He obviously has the burden of proof on him, yet he replies with "Do you have proof that it can't sir?

And I suspect he has done this at least 2 times.

Reasons for voting decision: Con used an "Argument from ignorance" fallacy. Simply because Pro can't prove 2+2 doesn't = 5, doesn't mean that 2+2=5.
