  • It seems the scientists have done good work with the resources available, but “confirming a belief” is not the same as proof.

  • Heh. You caught that. I was very careful how I worded this post. The data might be strong and convincing, but it is still circumstantial and indirect evidence. We won’t truly confirm the existence of this water until we go there and drill into it.
