Seemingly rational people have fallen under the spell

Response to The Great Flood is just baffling to me




It proves therefore quite difficult to apply rational analysis to such a display of ignorance, arrogance; dishonesty even - all in one. Yet, that is the task one takes upon oneself when one cares to address it. It's a sheer impossible endevour though, because one will be confronted with a rather excruciating characteristic of ardent believers: "the fruit loop".

The fruit loop is a mental circle through which fanatic proponents of whatever effortlessly change their so called evidence in response to each aspect which is refuted. As soon as one delusion is unmasked, they simply use or invent another to replace it and forget or even deny the former ever existed, and so on and so forth.

Eventually, when these rigid followers have turned full circle through their endlessly changing fantasy, they then re-invent the original delusion and deny it was ever debunked, thus starting the circle once more, perpetuating the fruit loop which saves these zealous confirmationists from ever having to see any of their ideas through to its (ill)logical conclusions.

Never a group of people to be bothered by facts, these challenged perpetrators have constructed an elaborately woven web of delusions and unsubstantiated hearsay in order to promote theirs -across the internet, in main stream media, through institutions and so on, even through governmental bodies- to the extent that a number of otherwise rational people have actually fallen under its spell.

It renders all rational efforts virtually futile since among the human species happen to roam individuals and factions who'd rather pose as absurd than to admit being mistaken, even when shown so, while nursing the illusion they save face that way.

Discussion; communication et al., becomes pointless then; when people make up their own meanings of definitions or simply redefine them into something hitherto totally unknown to anyone other than themselves, which, of course, renders it fiction - by definition.

rejected and denied by many, accepted and embraced by few : incontrovertibility
- it is not what we (think we) know that matters, it is what we can show true that does
as the maxim demands; truth is demonstrably fact and fact is demonstrably true
everything else ... mere BS -
