  1. 1. Yes. 2. Yes, it's a big fakeroo. And Hollywood has been faking bloody battlefields for over a century. 3. I prefer Cris Angell making the elephant disappear from the middle of a Vegas parking lot. 4. It was reported I have possibly the biggest penis in history. 5. How am I defending "myself" rather than my reasoning? 6. Which I have been doing. 7. The US doesn't lie about everything, just the things that render an advantage and I'm sure the peeps have convinced themselves it's for the greater good of the USA.
  2. Because I won't take the word of proven liars as gospel, it proves I'm a bad man? Okey dokely...
  3. 1. I've never claimed "anything can be faked". I've merely pointed out we only have the word of your intelligence agencies that what they say is true. 2. You have no justification for making this accusation. I have merely pointed out an undeniable fact. I'm not required to justify my motives as a result. 3. Even if Zawahiri was reported dead many times with no verification (which I don't remember), what's puzzling about the lack of government confirmation? If I claim the moon is made from green cheese and it isn't confirmed by any factual evidence, is my claim believable? 4. They could have made the claim any time, but they didn't. Doesn't mean when they did make the claim it was the truth. 5. An emotional response makes it easier to push an unreasonable argument. Again, I have only pointed out there is no way to independently confirm the government's claims about the deaths of these two gentleman. Why that means I have to defend myself personally as a result should tell you something.
  4. Going back to the topic, it's curious that not only do we have no evidence other than the government that they killed bin Laden and dumped him in the ocean, there is also no evidence for America's claim they blew Ayman al Zawahiri to kingdom come.
  5. Sure is, because it's correct, while your version is incorrect, because CORRELATION CAN CERTAINLY IMPLY CAUSATION. https://www.theguardian.com/science/blog/2012/jan/06/correlation-causation Correlation is not causation Nathan Green. Fri 6 Jan 2012 18.58 GMT Repeat after me, correlation is not causation, correlation is not causation, correlation is not causation … Correlation is not causation. Correlation is not causation. Correlation is not causation … " At times during my statistics studies I felt like Jack Nicholson in the film The Shining, in which we witness his descent into madness as he types the same sentence over and over again, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy … " "Correlation is not causation" is a statistics mantra. It is drilled, military school-style, into every budding statistician. But what does it actually mean? Well, correlation is a measure of how closely related two things are. Think of it as a number describing the relative change in one thing when there is a change in the other, with 1 being a strong positive relationship between two sets of numbers, –1 being a strong negative relationship and 0 being no relationship whatsoever. "Correlation is not causation" means that just because two things correlate does not necessarily mean that one causes the other. ...more... Without the qualifier the statement is incorrect. "Causation does not imply correlation" is utterly incorrect as it's entirely possible that correlation CAN IMPLY CAUSATION. It's a lazy colloquialism that's worked it's way into the lexicon. Smarten up.
  6. You're being disingenuous again. You left out a crucial word. Correlation does not NECESSARILY equal causation. However, it certainly can.
  7. Imagine this scenario... Bin Laden was, and remained to his death an American intelligence agent, safe and secure in the bin Laden fortress with his 25 wives until he went to Allah, only coming out for the occasional photo op...
  8. It's staggeringly brilliant both in concept and execution. Not to mention politically astute. Every time I watch it I'm knocked out by how brave it is.
  9. Never heard that mooted. Hard to believe he wore one for a decade or longer considering there was no sign of him anywhere for 2 decades before he, ahem, supposedly popped up next to a Pakistani military base. You do know he worked for American intelligence for the entire 80s before he, ahem, turned jihadist, don't you?
