To believe or not to believe?
Rarely do any of us witness a significant event first-hand. In order to make up our minds as to who is telling us the truth, we have to rely upon something other than our senses.
If we wish to hold an opinion in the public arena, when others may hold opposite opinions and will respond to what we say, we must think clearly. Our ability to gather facts, determine which ones are most relevant to the question at hand and to provide a coherent analysis gets tested.
Recently, on the Education Forum, I, along with several other researchers of the JFK assassination participated on one of the hundreds of threads. Our thread would set the Forum record for most postings: 2,000 and counting.
What topic would make people with deep interest in the assassination want to respond with such frequency more than discussion of the single bullet theory, the autopsy or the grassy knoll?
It was a debate over whether one Judyth Vary Baker is telling the truth that she had a relationship with accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and participated with him in a top-secret laboratory experiment to develop cancer cells with which to inject Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. (Baker will soon release a book, Me and Lee, about her experiences).
