Bertrand Russell's Teapot by davidraphael Bertrand Russell's Teapot by davidraphael
Russell's teapot, sometimes called the Celestial Teapot, is an analogy first coined by the philosopher Bertrand Russell (1872–1970), intended to refute the idea that the philosophic burden of proof lies upon the sceptic to disprove unfalsifiable claims of religions. Russell's teapot is still referred to in discussions concerning the existence of God.

Error : The teapot isn't around Earh Orbit, if it was we could see it right now.

It was supposed to be between Earth and Mars (we still wouldn't be able to detect it here I think)
