Facts are not opinionsEverything is an opinion, as we are all humans and our opinions do count.
The difference being I use facts to qualify my opinion rather than using the subjective interpretation of somebody else's opinions to buttress petty bigotriesUnless you see your own opinions as facts while every other opinion is just an opinion, as if being an opinion degrades the truth which it does not.
No evidence is evidence and can be incontravertibly recognised as such. Opinion is subjective and therefore open to multiple interpretationIn a Court trial people give their testimony based on their belief and understanding and opinions and it is "evidence" and opinions have always been evidence and always will be.
I have at all times qualified my position using fact rather than opinion on this issueI figure that you are just trying to cop-out as if your own opinions are FACTS and then you can deny the truth given to you by others.
I respect verifiable fact over belief and opinion every time. It serves me well. You for example clearly believe the US is responsible for what has happened in Ukraine irrespective of the complete lack of facts or evidence that would support such a contention and based on any opinion that feeds your anti US xenophobia. I do notIf you do not respect the opinions of others then the defect is in your self and not in our evidence.
