Worksheet 7 Identify the correct placement of the burden of proof. 1. Exercise can help keep your mind young, and I can prove it! The burden is on the speaker who says “exercise can help keep your mind young, and I can prove it!” 2. You don’t believe in God? Okay, prove it! Prove to me there’s no God! The speaker is seeking for proof by saying “ you don’t believe in God? Okay, prove it!” The speaker is where the burden lies, not with the person that is being spoken to. 3. We just supply the demand, consumers are in control; if they don’t want it, they should stop buying it. We can’t prove it, of course, and we shouldn’t have to. That’s just the way it is. So you can’t blame us for the proliferation of products you think are bad. The burden lies on the speaker because he is claiming something that he cannot prove. 4. Etheridge: I tell you, air pollution triggers heart attacks! A recent study in The New England Journal of Medicine reported that people traveling in cars were less apt to have a heart attack than people traveling by bicycle.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
