Hello I have a question, I need to know if there is a logical fallacy for this. Let me give an example:
There are a few people playing a game online together, using voice, chat, in a busy game where of course lots of little conversations are going on along with the conversations of strategy of the game ect ect.
Someone says something, not incredibly loud but audible enough very mean in the midst of other conversations. Only one person notices it. This person brings it up, but the only defense is "everyone else didn't hear it, so it didn't happen." But they stand by this defense as if someone didn't hear one little thing is more valid than someone actually hearing a very specific thing. You could probably take this example to a crowded room of conversations where someone doesn't pick up on everything.
I am no master of logic or anything, but this doesn't make sense to me. Just because you don't perceive something, it means people who did notice it are wrong? It doesn't make sense to me that the evidence would be stronger of someone who didn't see something, compared to someone who did without a doubt see something. Just because you didn't see it happen, does not mean it didn't happen, but if someone sees it happen, it proves it did!
I know this is dumb personal drama but lets just say something like this was very hurtful that happened to me. Someone said something mean about someone else I heard, and I asked them about it, sternly but peacefully and not even that confrontational of a way, went into a rampage about how no one else heard it, and then started making fun of me for being a "lonely cripple with no friends" [I have a permanently broken hand] and everyone then removed me from every type of friends list ever in the group [and these were close friends, we even had RL trips planned together no joke], all mostly on the basis of how no one else heard it [this person who said this had a long well known history of being a pain in everyone's side in the group though too about stuff like this] so it couldn't have been true.
Thank you for your help. I know this is dumb drama between friends none of you want to hear about but I need to know thank you.
