I'm not repeating your argument to you! We do differ massivly in the
point that you seem to be of the rather strange opinion that one cannot
learn what happened in the past vias the internet, even though all
knowledge, about the past or anything else is but opinion, which can as
well be exchanged via the internet as it can be via any other mode of
spoken or written transmission.
You, however, dismiss the possibility that one can learn anything about
what happened in the past by exchange over the internet, as, as you put
it, what is written here only represents opinions.
So, my statement is quite contrary to what you have said - you say
nothing can be learned from opinions, and I say we learn from nothing
