Rational Thought

Rational thought can provide an acceptable explanation for any situation.

But what is logical or rational? According to whom? Who decides what is acceptable?

The idea of a conspiracy theory and the like are rejected for no reason other than they don't conform to the consensus opinion. Not 'logical' or 'rational'. The non-existence of any counter arguments. Rejection for absolutely no reason is just as illogical and irrational. Nothing more than faith in some answer that has been accepted. On what reasonable grounds can it be accepted?

Even if there is no answer or explanation, rejection can still occur for no good reason.

Who proposed the answer? Why should this be any more correct than any other?
