From a book titled "Doubt is their Product". http://www.amazon.co.uk/Doubt-Their-Product-Industrys-Threatens/dp/019530067X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1452765173&sr=1-1&keywords=doubt+is+their+product
"Doubt is our product," a cigarette executive once observed, "since it is the best means of competing with the 'body of fact' that exists in the minds of the general public. It is also the means of establishing a controversy." Michaels argues that for decades cigarette manufacturers knew that their product was hazardous to people's health, but hired mercenary scientists who "manufactured uncertainty by questioning every study, dissecting every method, and disputing every conclusion". In doing so the tobacco industry waged a campaign that "successfully delayed regulation and victim compensation for decades"
With TSCC saying "doubt your doubts" is this now their 'product'? From the above quote "since it is the best means of competing with the 'body of fact' that exists in the minds of the general public".
That is exactly what TSCC does through its apostles, newsroom, PR firm and apologists. Their main dupes being TBMs with the general public as secondary dupes.
As the Book of Mormon and the First Vision (both of which have to be true for TSCC to be true) are utterly indefensible, TSCC are using the tactics invented by the tobacco industry to counter solid facts.
This description in a book by Michael Bettancourt:-
"The creation of systemic unknowns where any potential "fact" is always already countered by an alternative of apparently equal weight and value renders engagement with the conditions of reality -- -- contentious and a source of confusion, reflected by the inability of participants in bubbles to be aware of the immanent collapse until after it has happened"
