    brandes evidence

    *raises hand*

    hi, I am mario saab, I am 22 years old, new here, and I love animals.
    ...
    anywho, can we use a noun directly after the verb "conclude"?
    for example: from this, we conclude theism. (i.e. we concllude that theism is true)


    oh and the title is the image verification in case you're wondering

    Hello, and welcome to Using English.
    (I love animals too, but it's nice that you feel this so strongly that you make it part of your introduction.)

    No, you can't phrase it that way.

    You can conclude a meeting (you make it come to an end) and we say that an event has concluded (come to an end), but when you mean "draw a conclusion" you need that longer structure.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I wouldn't. To convey that sense you could say:
    Prove the theory = establish the validity of the theory = prove it to be authentic ...

    I feel it strongly enough to mention them in my intro but not enough to put them as my avatar ^_^
