It's an attitude problem, like a phase. Most of the time the person with debunkeritis, or obsessive debunking disorder, will have other personality
disorders, which I don't care to explore because psychology is a never ending black hole. If it's a he, he will be in late teens early 20s, either
an atheist or chaos magician, probably has a small criminal record, likely washes away memories of past mistakes with booze or drugs. He will have a
decent relationship with his mother, despite his reputation as a troublemaker, but his father may be distant. May have hacker friends, may be in
college, with an ego to push himself into high grades. Has fantasies of being recognized by peers as a sociopath.
Jason Holmes was an obsessive debunker in his teens. See where debunking gets you? Delusional that the rules of cause and effect don't apply to
you. They become obsessive, trying to debunk the decisions in college, trying to debunk the federal laws too.
Now if it's a she, she will be two years younger than the forum regulations allow, still in grade school, have strong opinions for rainbows and
unicorns, part of an upper to middle class household with parents that would flame the forum if ever someone made their little angel cry.
One of the most popular phrases used by an obsessive debunker is "Occam's Razor". Others include "pics or it didn't happen", "faked", and
"photoshopped". The logical fallacies are used, often many in the same sentence. The bottom of their debunking efforts is to win an argument not
to develop an understanding of another person's assertions.
