in thread If you believe in Lists in Scalar Context, Clap your Hands
By your reasoning, the fact that strings are mentioned in the manual page supports the notion that strings are only a concept for humans, but are not really part of the Perl language.
Suppose I had claimed that birds are black. And oshalla disagrees, and shows pictures of ravens. Now, that wouldn't support his case, would it?
If I say that lists are a concept for humans, and someone shows the manual page - which is intended for humans - mentioning lists, than it only supports my claim. It doesn't follow that my claim is true - but it certainly doesn't disprove it.
