Evidence I 85 ff
History/past/Wright: It is a peculiarity of evidence of the past, that nothing can guarantee that the currently available evidence could not be misleading due to some unfortunate circumstances.
  As a result, it also applies to statements about objects and events in the present tense (present) that their justification may not be a reason to believe in general, that this will not be their fate.
