Well, you say it's a LIE, yet you have been nowhere near there (I take it), so you are relying on third party information that this is a lie. Perhaps
you trust that information. That's fine. But I feel exactly the same way about people who believe in Chemtrails, for example. That idea is so
completely insane and idiotic that I wonder how the people who believe it can function as human beings. I would say the same thing about 9/11
truthers, people who believe Jesus is their Savior, people who believe Reptilian gods are going to eat their souls, or dozens of other quack theories
out there and regular features on ATS.
Your loved one has personally seen a sub-set of information relating to your issue and used inductive reasoning to assume all is fine. You've done
pretty much the same thing. Both of you are reacting according to your own world view, but it is you who is acting like you want to convert your loved
one to your way of thinking.
I have a relative like that, too. He wants to convert me to Christianity. he believes in his heart of hearts that I will go to Hell if I do not accept
Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. I mean, he GRIEVES over this, he feels so strongly.
I think he's bonkers myself.
