82. Here, here!!
To have the opportunity to ask the questions without reprisal, no matter how ridiculous, is the essence of intellectual freedom. (And we all know how much you-know-who despises that concept.)

Many theories and beliefs that we today take for granted were once thought of as preposterous. There are many who thought Tuskeegee or even the Holocaust were the product of the "tinfoil hatters". It seems to me that such defensiveness against the posters question belies a underlying fear of what might be.

If we all just accepted that only the things we could "logically" explain were true, human progress would stop dead in its tracks.
