Closing our eyes doesn't mean something didn't happen.
用 doesn't 還是 do not?

Closing our eyes cannot stop anything from happening.
Something has happened.（＝已經出事了！）
但否定時不會用「現在簡單式」寫成：Something doesn't happen。
而是用「過去簡單式」寫成： Nothing happened.（＝沒有發生狀況。）
或「現在完成式」：Nothing has happened.
當A means B. 時，可能有兩種狀況：（see p.959 Collins CoBuild English Dictionary for Advanced Leaners)
1. If something means another, the first thing leads to the second thing happening.
An enlarged prostate does not necessarily mean cancer.
The change will mean that the country no longer has full diplomatic relations with other states.
2. If something means another, it shows the second thing exists or is true.
Trade and product discounts can also mean big savings.
Just because he has a beard doesn't necessarily mean he's a hippy.
Something happened, and then you closed your eyes and pretended that it didn't happen.
Closing your eyes does not mean nothing happened.
