Burden of Proof
Time and time again, the concept of 'burden of proof' comes up in a debate. Many people who have no evidence to back up there beliefs, aside from personal anecdote, will pull out the "well you can't prove me wrong!" debate. This is a logical fallacy because of the burden of proof lies on the person making the claim...not the person who disbelieves said claim...and the main reason why a site rule is to not present beliefs as facts (unless you have the concrete evidence to back it up).

Here's a great video explaining the concept of Burden of Proof:
