And so what?  
The noosphere is so polluted that we wind up arguing with lies that wouldn't be bad if they were true:

* Obama is a Muslim

* Little boys who play with dolls will turn gay

* Women who take the pill all do it because they want to have sex without pregnancy.

It's like an Olympics event of begging the question.

One day I'm going to find or coin that single word which means "This isn't true AND there would be nothing wrong with it if it were true."

Heh. I do remember one of the prouder moments of my high school life. one of the verbal bullies (not *really* bad, but still a bit of a bully) came up while I was playing chess and declared *YOU* (so he had the attention of the whole room) ... ARE A VIRGIN!

I looked at him like he was nuts, and said "So?????"

Broke the room up. And sure, some where laughing at me, but I still felt a profound sense of victory.
