    Description

      The bug

      When a predicate does not exist, commands that evaluate it act as though it existed, ran properly, and returned false.

      Compare the following:

      @a[advancements={does_not_exist=false}]   // finds nobody
      @a[advancements={does_not_exist=true}]    // finds nobody
      @a[predicate=!does_not_exist]             // finds everyone

      How to reproduce

      /execute unless predicate aklsdjfaksjfa
      /execute if entity @s[predicate=!alskdjf]

      Expected result: error, 'aklsdjfaksjfa' not found

      Actual result: Test passed
