That there is a whole lot of speculating, buddy, and I wonder why. There are many reasons one might have to speculate, but not usually when the object of your speculation is available to answer direct questions. Let me try a bit of speculation.

I think you speculate on my positions rather than just asking some direct questions because you do not want to hear the answers. Dealing with real answers can be very troublesome, and it can take you down logical and empirical pathways inconvenient to your prejudices. It is much easier to make up stuff, attribute it to your opponents, and then argue against the stuff you yourself made up.

It is easier, but whether or not it is intellectually honest can be doubted.
