This has nothing to do with friendship or judgement.
9/11 “truthers” are simply not considered credible: a man or woman who subscribes to the theory that the United States government was behind the September 11 attacks has shown such a devastating lack of judgement and intellect on that issue that it would be a reckless mistake to treat anything he or she says or writes with anything less than iron incredulity.
In short, it’s not good to copy and paste something written by someone who has also written that George W. Bush planned the destruction of the World Trade Center.
That’s not smh23’s rule, that’s just the way of the wonderful, mostly-not-crazy world we live in.[/quote]
So you base credibility on agreement or disagreement with the official 9/11 story?[/quote]
Jesus. It’s simple:
If a guy walks up to me and tells me that little green aliens abducted him in the 90’s and raped him repeatedly before implanting him with computer chips and dropping him back off on Earth, I’m not going to believe the next sentence out of his mouth, no matter what it is.
“Truthers” lose credibility. Sex offenders don’t get to babysit my kids. Fat people don’t get to give me training advice. Actions have consequences.[/quote]
Wait, what? Do they ‘lose credibility’ or should they be treated with ‘iron incredulity’. Those are not the same, you know. Make up your mind.
And you seriously equate those who doubt the official 9/11 story with sex offenders and ‘abductees’?
In the realm of objective reasoning ability, you’re not doing yourself any favors.[/quote]
An analogy is not “equating.”
Smh23 is to women between the ages of 18 and 29 as a pederast is to boys between the ages of 8 and 12.
That’s an analogy, and a perfectly reasonable one. Not an expression of equality. Understand?[/quote]
I understand analogies just fine. You painted “truthers” as an analogue to sex offenders, relative to the ideas of credibility and trustworthiness, respectively.
I’m not sure why you don’t have relationships with women between the ages of 18 and 29 (if your analogy is correct, they’re not quite old enough for you), but whatever floats your boat.
Your words. Direct quotes. Above.
So then, you believe the official story about the 9/11 attacks? 100%?
[quote]No amount of hairsplitting or nitpicking is going to change the fact that you’ve been copying and pasting the writings of a 9/11 “truther”–a fact which strongly suggests that you do indeed, as TB speculated above, frequent the “tinfoil hat” corners of the internet.
Enough said, I think.[/quote]
How is it that you know more about those tinfoil hat corners than I do?
