What assumptions is my life based on? What assumptions have I posted? I think facts is a loaded term that you can manipulate. I prefer data and evidence. Data and evidence take me all the way. If something does not stand up to the data and evidence it is not relevant. I can remove it from consideration. Wishful thinking is fun, but nothing to base a life on.
What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.
If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?
