Stop giving examples of proofs where practical is impossible; this will
never convince me that theoretical proof is better when a practical proof is
also possible. What you've proven below is that nobody living has that scar
(providing however you could do such a research quick enough or tell people
to put the birth-giving on hold for a while). If you set out to prove that
nobody ever in the past or in the future could have such a scar you'd have
been pretty darn stupid to choose this approach.

You better get caught up on Wittgenstein or Benjamin Whorf, because you're
saying things that don't make any sense. What's "rock solid" about examining
every person in the world to discover, say, that nobody in the world has an
s-shaped scar on their left shoulder? What is that supposed to "prove" about
whether there ever was such a person in the past or might be in the future?
