    pointless fearmongering and making amateurish mistakes help your cause?

    My initial reply was polite enough. However, the more you kept insisting, incorrectly, that I was wrong, the more I lost my patience.

    This being a public forum, I'm not correcting you for your benefit. By pointing out your mistakes and emphasizing how very basic they are, I hope that those reading this will take away an important message from this exchange, so that the next time they run across some sort of idiotic, fearmongering claim on the Internet, they won't automatically take it at face value. I want them to question such claims with a bit of critical thought, and I want them to apply some context so that they understand, not just react.

    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

      I'm going to quote from this comment liberally.

      Causation was, is, and ever shall be a slippery bitch, so we're best sticking with noting the facts
