the conspiracy theorists favorite phrase, “could have”

This bothers me too. So you want to me to unequivocally state that something definitely happened when it’s not proved? If I do, you’ll take it apart and claim you’ve proved that my whole argument is “false”. When I say something “could have” happened you say I’m “using the conspiracy theorists favorite phrase”.

no its the using of “could have” as the starting pint.

wasn’t speaking of you specifically, but if you look at the CTs on the board here (OT, Spartan) etc, the commonality is they flip logic. Logic is Occam’s razor and also a “theory” starts as UNTRUE until proven or supported at some level. CTs reverse it and almost say “its true unless you can prove it false.”
