Rebuttal:An attempt to contradict or disprove an argument by offering a counter argument or countervailing proof.
You must have missed all the recent rebuttals if you believe that . Where there isn't a rebuttal there is a refutation .
Here are some of the recent examples “the humungous prehistoric meagliths in Russia” and the concomitant belief that nature doesn't do “right angles “ . Multiple links as evidence proving that similar geology is found throughout the world ,including ubiquitous examples of right angles .
In response nothing but bile and no evidence .
Cosos artefact ,very simple explanation with supporting evidence showing that the “artefact” was a spark plug verified by an expert ,and that there was no geode verified by an expert . Response ,zero apart from a comment along the lines of “your'e on your own bro “ ,which is not only wrong but is not really a meaningful response .
Hagar Qim was built in the middle to late Pleistocene and was never covered in sand . There was a huge error in the thinking about how the middle Pleistocene is dated and absolutely nothing to support the date of build . Evidence was provided of drawings made of the site prior to excavation showing it covered in sand .Response :nothing evidential and a comment elsewhere about “vermin” spoiling the forum ,hilariously with no sense of irony followed up a little later with mention of fascists.
Vitrified Forts : You believed that “ it's evidence of an arial catastrophe nothing could have survived” but never came up with any evidence and when asked to do so or explain where you got the idea from ,you refused describing the request as a “gambit” .Again, there was a simple explanation supported by evidence with nothing to support your view .
Even a simple rebuttal relating to the recent Aussie DNA sampling problems was just ignored .
These are rebuttals and refutations of specific points , not some generalised “all X is crap” and your'e all nuts to believe it” followed a bunch of emoticons ,which seems to be what passes for discussion from some .
