    This make me think of the phrase “it’s a provable fact” which to my understanding means it may or may not be true and will remain so until proven.

    But people seem to think it means that the statement is true. Try it out in conversation sometime it really lends credibility to wild claims.

    Ha ha, that is a good point feralbeagle. “It’s a provable fact” should probably mean “it is possible for this fact to be proven.” However, when you first mentioned it I totally interpreted it as “it has been proven.”

    Experiments have shown that a fact is not in fact a fact until the fact has been proven to be a fact, at which point is does become, in fact, a fact.
