Round 1
Published:
I thank RM for debating with me today. Since I deleted my argument (as I assumed RM would no longer be active on this site), I will provide my new argument on this google doc. I ask RM to please post his initial argument after mine is completed, thank you.

Published:
I do not actually owe you anything and if I cared about this debate truly, I'd be throwing a tantrum about your tantrum and making it clear that your laziness is inexcusable regardless of what you believed I would or wouldn't do.

The fortunate thing for us both is that this debate is unrated and also that upon second thought, I realised just how many people I'd be putting under a spotlight and how much of a threat I'd become to authorities by posting this in such a public manner.

Some things are 'never go back'. A good lesson in life is to never ever post something online, especially in public forums, that you'd regret 'never going back' on. I'm wise and old enough to never ever make this error going forth and me not bothering to have this debate is one of them.

Feel free to say 'he doesn't really believe it', feel free to say 'he's too dumb to defend it' both are what the authorities will be happy you think and happy that I let you think.

If you really are interested in whether or not it was a Hoax, start with this video:


I thank him for his bravery, I do not intend to ever become even slightly famous for my theories anymore and honestly am quitting online debating in general. My professional, emotional/romantic and even intellectual/private life/world are altering and I could even say getting more vivid and rich. I have little interest in typing away in a way that both makes powerful people hate me for writing well/informative and makes people who hate me on this website able to hand me a loss, regardless. I wouldn't care about the loss and made this debate be unrated intentionally so it would only matter how much truth I spread but in hindsight it would have been wiser to go 'naww dude, I believe none of that shit!' That's right, the moon landing was real and I just bullshitted my beliefs on this website. ;) ;)

Enjoy being sheep, at least the shepherds of this world will not come for you.

It was pleasant to make this a lesser priority in my life while enough of a priority to be enjoyed by me.

1) They are not the authorities im referring to.
2) I meant Nixon, not that Reagan was better.

Also, Bish and Virt are far-left. I don't think they'll care about what you say about Reagan, lol

I'm not going to use appeal to authorities in my argument. That's a fallacy, and I don't do those.

do what you want, I am not going to engage in this debate. It's going to be far too easy to smear campaign me and I already know the authorities will dislike me posting what I want to post about Reagan and the motive to lie. I am not interested in this debate at all, you were correct in your presumptions.

Since we're having friendly conversations, I usually don't ask this and am shocked that some users just do it on assumption that it's okay but can we agree outright that we're permitted to post sources in the comments section or wherever, in order to maximise the 20k chars?
