    Re: difference between evidently and obviously

    Question: What is the difference between "evidently" and "obviously"?
    Answer: If something is evidently the case it means that presently available evidence indicates a certain conclusion but that additional evidence might change one's mind. If something is obviously the case it means that what can be seen (requiring no explanation) indicates a certain conclusion and that no additional evidence is needed.
