I had this disagreement with someone. I said that everything is 'b'chezkas' heter, and is mutar unless there is a source that assurs it. He said that everything is assur unless you find a source that its mutar.

Can you provide a source or proof one way or another?

(According to him, I would think that fruits like mangos or avacados should be assur to eat.)

edit - it seems that he was joking, but I'm still curious if there is a source in gemara or mefarshim about this. (One can argue that no source is needed, as it is logical, but like I said, I'm curious.)

If something is not explicitly prohibited, is it permitted?
