[QUOTE=DIYSwede;179031]FWIW: My personal experience is that in order to "win an argument",
there has to be a shared notion of what a relevant argument even is,
what would constitute necessary and sufficient facts for,
but also against the assumed hypothesis to be proven or disproved.
And lastly - a mind open enough to even for a moment consider having beliefs being false.
All government inquiries and 'consultations' have "terms/frames of reference" deliberately designed to exclude a lot of pertinent information including verifiable facts for precisely the reason you state so well.
