Why did you only say "probably true?"


I have just looked over your answers to questions circulating on emails.  Not knowing the “correct” answers myself and you “scholars” giving “your opinions,” who does the simple layman believe?  Everyone has their own interpretations.  I see the way you don’t totally come out and say “true,” you say “probably true,” etc.  I believe that we all need to make our own judgments on emails being in your case as “true” or “probably true.”


Not knowing which answer to which question you read, I searched the web site for "probably true" and see that you were reading Nathan Barton's response to the "Iraq - Interesting" email. You are quite welcome to double check Nathan's facts -- he lists in detail the reason why the claims were true or not. He also expressed the degree of certainty we can have about some of the information cited. (By the way, he concluded that three of the facts in the original email were definitely true.) The fact that flaws were pointed out in the original email is not a bad thing. We ought to always use our heads when we are presented with claims.
