They are manipulative questions, Samuel.
How is it manipulative to compare two examples of the same reasoning - or lack thereof - and ask why they are not treated the same way? If you don't want to answer the question since it is uncomfortable for you to do so because the answer challenges your beliefs, then that's something you should overcome. Self-imposed irrationality is the most insidious kind. If you don't answer those questions, I will simply assume you have no answer to them that doesn't contradict your previous statements.

And yes, my arguments are meant to convince you of my view. That's why it's a debate.

Once again, that is your opinion.
Can you give me a good reason to have any other? Can you give a good, concrete reason for anyone to have a different opinion?

And I'm not talking of military secrets, only.
Then all I can do is
If there was a government conspiracy to keep us from knowing about aliens, it would have fallen apart 50 years ago. There's no way that that many people could know about it and never leak anything substantial. That would be an inhuman accomplishment, much like other conspiracy theories.

Okay, then I won't bother you anymore if you don't want to listen.
