I think you are being very silly.
You give as an example how the moon hoax theories have all been debunked.
The first and most obvious question is how could they have been debunked if they were never mentioned?
If makes no sense trying to debunk a claim that no one has made and so "if" they have been debunked then some of the credit must go to those who
posted the moon hoax threads to begin with as without them there would have been no debunking. No? Obvious? Yes?
Then there is the question of who determines if the evidence debunking the claim is definitive enough. What you might find believable may seem less so
to others. That these threads continue demonstrates that there are others who do not share your belief in the debunker's arguments. Should their
opinions be ignored because you have decided to accept the counter-argument? Your opinion carries more weight because......because.....give me a hand
here I'm having a bit of trouble finishing this line....because...?????
I concede it is only a guess but I would guess that every single item discussed on a thread here will have at least one person who believes that
subject has been resolved and therefore the thread is a waste of time and should not be allowed. Should we ignore their opinions but not yours?
Yes? No? Who should we allow to determine this? And whoever you choose, why them?
Since no one is obligated to read/follow/comment or in any way even acknowledge the existence of any particular thread what harm is done if some
people choose to discuss an issue "you" have deemed "resolved"?
I, personally, have never encountered any scientific proof that God exists, Still..
I, personally, have never encountered any scientific proof that God does not exist.
The same holds true for Big Foot, ghosts, UFOs, aliens sea serpents or gnomes.
Am I wrong then to assume that for me to claim to 'know' which of these are part of our reality would be the height of arrogance? To confuse one's
opinion with fact, does this qualify as arrogance, or perhaps ignorance?
One thing I will admit you have right.
It is nice to let out a rant every so often.
Did I mention I have very little patience with those who pretend to intelligence yet are unable to grasp a concept as simple as objectivity?
Oooh. I like that. I have to rant more often.
