You can't reason someone out of a position they were not reasoned into.

What makes you think this conspiracy is worth arguing with these people over? Mind you these are the same people who think COVID-19 a hoax (yes, while also believing it's caused by 5G), the earth is flat, contrails are actually sedatives being sprayed from commercial planes, 9/11 was an inside job, dinosaurs never existed and were placed in the earth by god so we could fuel our vehicles, and that the world is less than 10,000 years old. Why shouldn't I just scuff off these morons rather than waste my time backing them into a corner only for them to shout, "LOOK INTO IT" or claim that I'm some sort of shill (I guess a shill for logic and critical thinking, I dunno)?

And the only way to know if they are an honest actor is to dive down the rabbit hole with them. I will typically try to feel someone out, but it's not always easy to tell when you can break through or not. Most times it's just moving goal posts. If it wasn't 5G it would be "to replace the batteries in the birds," gay sin, libtards, [insert your favorite conservative news talking point]. I enjoy engaging with people who have differing opinions than me, but if it is not an honest conversation and the other party chooses to reason backwards from their conclusion, it really feels pointless. But hey, thanks for the response and good luck on your crusade.

Hi Joe! Thanks for taking time out of your day to do this. I have a few short questions. 1) What's your favorite type of pudding? 2) What is the best life lesson you have ever learned? 3) Who is your role model? Thanks again!

Were you afraid of the payback you were going to get when you wrecked Johnson and Jr. on the final lap to steal the win in 06? What was going through your head when you crossed the finish line?
