Well, I must have touched some nerves. I anticipated this eventuality. That is why I operate a moderated blog. There are quite a few uneducated fanatics out there. Several attempted to post unsubstantiated, irrational posts including bad language.
I have no problem with a debate based on facts, or even a few opinions and beliefs, but what some in the general public do is:
1. use humor to discredit facts and The Truth
2. use "known" (actually unknown and unproven) facts to rebuff an assertion
3. threaten or bluster
4. discredit all facts with conspiracy theories
5. when confronted with irrefutable facts, duck with statements like, "a complete fabrication".
I welcome debate, but try to support your objection(s) with a few facts please.
