Syn: Proof; evidence; attestation; witness; affirmation;
Usage: Testimony, Proof, Evidence. Proof is the most
familiar, and is used more frequently (though not
exclusively) of facts and things which occur in the
ordinary concerns of life. Evidence is a word of more
dignity, and is more generally applied to that which
is moral or intellectual; as, the evidences of
Christianity, etc. Testimony is what is deposed to by
a witness on oath or affirmation. When used
figuratively or in a wider sense, the word testimony
has still a reference to some living agent as its
author, as when we speak of the testimony of
conscience, or of doing a thing in testimony of our
affection, etc. Testimony refers rather to the thing
declared, evidence to its value or effect. ``To
conform our language more to common use, we ought to
divide arguments into demonstrations, proofs, and
probabilities; ba proofs, meaning such arguments from
experience as leave no room for doubt or opposition.'
--Hume. ``The evidence of sense is the first and
highest kind of evidence of which human nature is
capable.' --Bp. Wilkins. ``The proof of everything
must be by the testimony of such as the parties
