JUSTIFY: From Merriam-Webster dictionary:
: to provide or be a good reason for (something)
: to prove or show (something) to be just, right, or reasonable
: to provide a good reason for the actions of (someone)
This is not a favorite word of mine. Some how it seems argumentative – to have to justify. And people seem to be able to manipulate data to justify whatever side of an issue they are supporting/promoting.
The attitude I prefer is of waiting as the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
