The poster wasn't condemned for inaccuracies the poster was corrected for inaccuracies. The poster was reminded, after commenting on nitpicking, that he took a swipe at groups he dislikes. People can keep saying "Many people ignore facts and blindly believe etc etc etc" but evidence presents itself in many forms and just because some people want to condemn certain groups for their beliefs doesn't make the people condemning them correct. If people want, or feel they must, take the high ground in discussions like this and pick at groups of people they disagree with then they should expect to be able to articulate themselves to the extremely high standards they are setting.

I guess it is pointless to discuss with people who don't want to get to real truth.

We have genetics today. Why is it so hard to imagine humans were also geneticly engineered at some point in past? Yes we have evolution in place but who put it there to begin with? Space dust interaction with something by mistake? Yeah right...that kind of thinking is exactly what people in charge want and need. The more we won't care the more they will benefit from it.

We all want "real truth" but the problem is nothing you have posted is remotely convincing. You don't give a personal account, you don't give scientific reasoning, you don't even give a decent YouTube clip to back up your thoughts. That is all fine you are allowed to believe whatever you want to believe but don't judge others just because they don't agree with you. Discussion is never pointless, what is pointless is entering into a discussion (remember you started this one) and not considering at any point in time that you may be wrong. If you do that it is not a discussion but instead it is a lecture.
