A lot of people are quite rightly asking me why they shouldn’t speculate
Let me say this, I do think that you should speculate and question everything but do so sensibly.
That means a couple of things, primarily that people when speculating should seek out the truth, take this thread for example. The OP says “I would
speculate that this was a test for Martial law”, ok that’s fine you can speculate all you want but look at what the evidence has to say and it
will demonstrate this was not a test of martial law for the reasons I and others outlined earlier in this thread. If you speculate without looking at
the facts you only embrace ignorance so yes ask “was this a test for Martial law?” but at the same time don’t allow a confirmation bias to creep
in, look at the evidence and hard facts.
The second point I would raise is that a speculative opinion or statement is not as valuable or have as much wait to it as a informed opinion or
statement of fact. Facts trump speculation every time, yes speculating and asking questions about big events is important but only if you can accept
that its only speculation which in the end means pretty much nothing unless there are facts to back it up and turn it from a speculative opinion to a
I could speculate that Santa was the real bomber with just as much credibility as the OP has in speculating that this was a test of Martial law, and
like the OPs claims unless I have some facts to back that up it means absolutely nothing.
So yes speculate all you want just remember that speculation and facts are not the same thing.
