Years ago, when I got into this debate I still thought that reason and facts would carry the day. I could not have been more wrong. Nothing will ever sway those people. They want to be right, reality be damned. I have discussed many of them. It’s extremely rare to push this to a debate on facts. They simply resort to mindless repetition of whatever they say and when they feel that they are losing the debate, they simp,e get up and leave just to re-spout their drivel next time as if nothing had happened. They are this way because they can. There is no consequence attached. We need some for them.
