Quote from Ambrose Bierce 

"As records of courts and justice are admissible, it can easily be
proved that powerful and malevolent magicians once existed and were a
scourge to mankind. The evidence (including confession) upon which
certain women were convicted of witchcraft and executed was without a
flaw; it is still unimpeachable. The judges' decisions based on it were
sound in logic and in law. Nothing in any existing court was ever more
thoroughly proved than the charges of witchcraft and sorcery for which
so many suffered death. If there were no witches, human testimony and
human reason are alike destitute of value."
