IAN: And Hara Ra adheres to the "zero evidence"
school of truth, where X = true if X is supported
by zero evidence. Which is why, failing to find a
single example of A where A is A free from not-
A, he then supports that which has no evidence.

In keeping with this most illogical standard, Hara Ra
is also an member of the ad hominem school of fallacy,
adept in its methods of anti-inquiry and distraction.
