    anyone who cites loose change as a source for a documentary should not be allowed to make 'informative' pieces that impressionable 15 year olds will see

    so saying that there is a difference in validity between true information and untrue information is a fallacy?

    Not really, are we on the same post?

    "no one should watch any of those movies unless they want to laugh at them"

    action: watching the movies
    consequence: laughing at the movie

    but blah doesn't matter unless you want to heat up a debate which I'd rather avoid.

    Don't feel too bad Backs, God's opinions hold relatively little weight with me as he sides with debunkers, and most debunkers wouldn't admit evidence if it bit them in the scrotum.

    you are seriously making no sense at all i hope you realize. are you trying to twist my words to make it into some kind if pseuod logical fallacy garbage

    if you're going to say a movie as literally worthless as zeitgeist WILL change your life you're going to get some debate.

    i cant tell. do you actually put weight in these films, and take what they say seriously?

    I'm getting more of the late highschool/ early college pompous feeling from him though. A 15 year old will be bull-headed about in general, while this breed of douche bad generally plays it coy, claiming the opponents opinions are wrong, but say they don't want to get into an argument.

    haha, yes I so believe it was an inside job. At least that part, but to your point there is so much stuff that can be thrown into controversy so I just leave it out there as a possibility but I wouldn't take it entirely seriously.

    I do so love technicalities =) so yes Zeitgeist will change your life forever, anything you do changes you life, even in the smallest way.

    Oh and hey, apologies for appearing ostensible. Not many people like that =)


    P.S.: I like your name choices... quite different.

    teenagers are very capable of that also. a college student will throw out faulty reports and statistics to at least act like they back up their shit, while teens say you're flat wrong and when pressured for reasoning they play it off and try to get away.

    But that faulty reasoning statement really makes him seem like a freshman in college, who after one semester, thinks they've been enlightened beyond all others.

    when you become a teenager you still get that same bullshit attitude like you are top dog. the underlying difference is does he attempt to support his statement or not, and i have no seen him attempt to so i'm thinking he is on the lower end.
