Evidence is basically anything that is presented in support of an assertion. The strongest type of evidence is when there is direct proof of the truth. The weakest type is circumstantial evidence which is when something is consistent with an assertion but does not rule out other, contradictory assertions. In law, rules of evidence govern the types of evidence that are admissible in a legal proceeding.
