I am not convinced when anyone says "you cannot prove a negative." At this moment, I can prove that my plate does not have food on it; that the dining table does not have monsters under it; etc etc.

I think I know what people "mean" though, and I think it is that when there is no current way of verifying or refuting something, then we should not assume that that "something" is true.
