C. S. Lewis, or whatever it is that I'm in the mood to discuss.

How do we define evidence?
How do we define evidence? How do we define evidence? I maintain the x is evidence for y just in case x is more likely to exist if y is true than if y is not true. And on that assumption, there is lots of evidence on both sides, and we have to decide which side is sufficient. But others define evidence differently.
