How certain are we that the Tudors didn't have CDs?

How certain are we that the Tudors didn't have CDs?
Here's the thing, we can only guess at the absence of CDs in Tudor times because.

A: I don't think the technology was up to it.
B: No one at the time mentioned it.

But maybe they did and just didn't like to make a big deal out of it. Maybe laser technology existed then along with a rudimentary encoding system for brightly coloured discs, if no one thought to right it down or leave one where we could find it then perhaps , just perhaps they were all listening to Gleensleaves on their Henry walkgentlemen as they trundled to the docks for some of that newly discovered tobacco.

This seems all a bit far fetched but does seem to be very similar to the current argument for god, the one where we cant absolutely count it out because we cant look in the impossible place they have had to hide god because all the real places have been checked.

So how certain am I that there isn't a god?

A bit more certain than I am that the Tudors didn't have CDs.

When I read the thread title I assumed CD meant cross-dresser, because I thought, "There's no way he's talking about actual CDs, right....?"

There were cross-dressers at the time.

But everyone called them "French Aristocrats".

It appears that they were still working with a stylus.

There is some modern literature that discusses the Tudors and PS4. I interpret it to mean that the Tudors in fact did play at certain stations of their lives, usually in the fourth month. Certain competitions of PS4 are also currently in wide mass appeal and surely this all stems logically from the Tudors themselves.

Therefore it would seem most reasonable to believe that the Tudors enjoyed their PS4's

This reminds me when some person asked me how can I "believe" that humans were on the Moon? And the answer is that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. But in 1969 it was no loner extraordinary for a man to walk on the Moon because people knew science enough and had enough technology to go to the Moon - all of which is opened and chekable for everyone. In time of the Tudors it would be an extraordinary claim that men walked on the moon because people back then didn't even know about air pressure. And so would the claim that they had CDs be extraordinary for the time of Tudors, because they didn't know a lot of stuff necessary for it to exist. They didn't even know about plastics.

Well I won't personally be convinced unless there's a youtube video about it and there is some reason that I should want to believe that Tudors had CDs.
