Is it your contention that one would have to have taken a fatal dose of arsenic before being able to warn others that arsenic can be fatal? Or perhaps that one would have to have personally performed the lab experiments to determine the fatal dose? Otherwise, one cannot prove one's claims personally. If that contention were true, then no one could learn anything other than by one's own personal experience. Fortunately, we have these things called "civilization," and "history," and "literature," and "science" which enable us all to learn things from the experience of others. If we didn't have that, then most of us would still be trying to figure out which plants were edible. I must presume that you did not independently invent the English language and you probably didn't independently invent the transistor or the digital computer or the stored program or the internet (you don't claim to be Al Gore, after all). Yet you are able to use computers to communicate your ideas using a language that many people understand. So the very existence of your own emails refutes your argument.
