Urgghh. This is getting weirder and weirder.
Just17 your logic is that I my comments can be dismissed (or at least challenged)
Yes I suggested they could be challenged.
because you say I have made an assumption that there is a single motivating factor and none other.
Which you did when making your argument against what you termed some form of conspiracy.
I wonder who you think the conspirators are?
But you are not suggesting there is any other motivating factor so how are you challenging my argument?
I did not challenge your argument.
Quite the opposite.
All you have outlined is that the structure of my argument rests on an assumption?
Correct, that is all I did ..... which contradicts what you posted above.
Would it be more valid if it rested on multiple assumptions? How many other motivating factors would I need to rule out to make it 'valid' in your eyes? I don't really get what you are driving at?
Seems more like you are trying to get a rise out of me than actually suggesting an alternative understanding? I am happy to be shown I am wrong, but at the moment you aren't showing me anything.
I never said you were wrong ...... in fact the opposite!
I said quite clearly that I did not disagree with your logic.
I have no idea why you are trying to pick an argument with me, but I am not playing.
