Why don't you try to.make an actual argument to discuss.
I think this is a very poor OP. Present an argument why you think it is a lie or relevant to anything. Make an argument she lied. Until then this is not worthy of a response.

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?

Re: Why don't you try to.make an actual argument to discuss.
Still no argument to support your assertion?
Rule 4 Points should be supported with evidence and reasoned argumentation.

Was that so hard? That is how we do things in this forum. Still no argument supporting the OP.

It is called supporting an assertion with actual facts and data. Something you seem to find quite difficult.

Re: Why don't you try to.make an actual argument to discuss.

Wrong again. I will demand source for all quotes. Many quotes attributed to famous people are not true.
