Here's what Icke fans seem to be doing these days (as far as I can surmise):
1. Evidence and proof are no longer necessary at all.
2. Faith is an important part of their belief system and they consider that to be fine.
3. The standard definitions and ideas about insanity are no longer relevant.
There's really no point in even trying to have a rational discussion with these people anymore in my opinion.
Where's the rationality with people who have such beliefs? There's no basis for rational discussion when they can revert to faith at any time and ignore long established principles such as meanings of words and outright lie.
Yes, outright lie. Such as the following example:
On the David "Icke" Forum after it was pointed out that the TV show "The Price is Right" is still on TV in 2012 although Icke predicted the show wouldn't be on TV in 2012 (because the world would be so different by 2012), someone actually posted the following:
"The program is no longer made and is no longer shown on mainstream TV."
CBS isn't considered mainstream TV?"Television’s longest-running game show begins its 41st season on the CBS Television Network Fall 2012."
