Subject: falsified bunny

I can't resist one quick remark on the alleged nonfalsifiability of the
"invisible bunny" hypothesis.

100% proof is not available--but it seldom if ever is for anything. Yet it is
extremely easy to show that the assertion is false to a near certainty. We
need merely think about the context--someone inventing an example of a
nonfalsifiable hypothesis for the sake of argument. In light of our total
experience, it is overwhelmingly more probable that the assertion arose in
this way, or as a joke, rather than as a result of the actual existence of
the bunny.
