For more information, see the Wikipedia article:

An a priori argument is one that does not rely on evidence but rather on logic and reasoning. This means that an a priori argument can never be proved wrong (as no evidence can be produced against it) but simultaneously it can never be proved right.

A priori arguments are generally considered weaker than a posteriori arguments.
