actually I see the opposite.
It's just that because it is easier to make stuff up, than to actually conduct research or God Forbid, actually attempt to falsify one's hunches to some extent before running them up the flagpole....

Which is why my short cut to debunking usually involves Simple Questions.
Strange that a poster whom many claim, thinks he already knows it all ,should ask questions?!?
