1. It's a hypothetical, therefore it need not be possible.Not possible in the real world.
2. Improbable is not the same thing as impossible.
Alright, I witnessed this man kidnap my family.Tell you what. You explain how you KNOW this person has information that no one else has.
Mind-reading is unnecessary. I saw him kidnap my family, therefore I KNOW he has information regarding their whereabouts. Anyway, all of this is nothing more than an irrelevant tangent, meant to avoid the issue. You'll most likely continue trying to distort my hypothetical, muddying the waters with irrelevancies and convoluted modifications. Can't say I'm surprised though, for some people this issue isn't about logic, it's about politics and emotion.THEN explain why, if you're so good at reading minds, you need to torture the person at all.
