What matters is - can we find something that supports that claim. Like an inscription that Vyse could have copied.

Personalizing.

I say that because imaginary evidence is just that - imaginary.

I have deemed nothing impossible. Yet.

It has shown that you let your imagination, rather than facts, guide you.

Personalizing.

I use logic. An example follows here under.

If you insist on using analogies, do try to come up with something that makes some sense.

The logical conclusion when you find a person with a bullet in him is that he was shot. The logical conclusion when you find an inscription on a stone is not that it was faked.

There you have it - the difference between logic and imagination.

That is the point that I have been making all along. Where is it? An answer based on facts rather than on your imagination if you please.

Do you understand the difference between "If fraud was committed he would have to have had something to copy" and "Fraud was commited therefore he had something to copy"?
You write the former but argue from the later.
