Would that it were so simple.

I'm currently in the middle of [Episode 364 Scott Adams: RPOS, The Steel Barrier and Climate Persuasion]. He argues (starting at 10:20) that the objective truth is unknowable and you can only look at the persuasion on both sides. And both sides are equally persuasive.

So you get a rebuttal to the rebuttal to the rebuttal, and it's turtles all the way down.
