    OK, you win, the earth is the center of the solar system because that was the consensus counter to Galileo's evidence to the contrary.

    Mr Miller,

    I wouldn’t dream of trying again to change your mind on this topic but to claim you debunked the theory that, consensus among scientist should not be used to shape policy, is incorrect. To debunk something you would have to of proven your point or convinced another your argument was sound and that you did not do.

    Mr. Barrow,

    Yes, I am guilty of stubbornly NOT accepting a falsehood and substantively refuting the claim that a consensus is a proof of a scientific theory. No one substantively proved otherwise in response. Political rhetoric or UN IPCC talking points are NOT a factual proof.

    Stubbornly refusing to accept facts is not debunking
