Hi Dennis,

Now wait a minute. Here's the problem with the analogy. You
proceed from the assumption that a given skeptic truly wants to
know if Bulgarians/Bulgaria exist. You see, social security
numbers, and the other identifying items can be stolen or
created out of whole cloth. Doesn't matter, I the skeptic won't
bother to check, since I've already decided there is no such
place as Bulgaria. Oh, sure, it's on the map, but maps can be
forged too, and it may just be a printing error.

As for eyewitness reports of Bulgarians, people are easily
fooled. Many people, having read books about Bulgaria, have a
deeply ingrained desire to believe in it. It's all hearsay, and
the purported photos of Bulgarians are merely doctored photos of
Hungarians. Don't even talk to me about videos.
