Awhile back the best scientific knowledge was that germs didn't exist. However, through observation and the development of more sensitive instrumentation germs have been discovered to exist. The discovery of germs was confirmed many multiple times and the existence of germs is not a belief statement but a fact based on repeatable, observable evidence.
If someone then asserts that germs do not exist, despite the evidence, then the burden of proof would lie on that person to disprove the existence of germs. And I would wish them the very best of luck with that endeavour.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
