“I have not been presented persuasive evidence for X.”

  1. No, it does not mean that persuasive evidence has not been presented, but it has not been accepted. There are many people, on various issues, who even say that there is nothing that could persuade them to change their mind on that issue. Quite often, this is the dogma they use to guide their life, instead of reason and reality.
