Based on a Non-Fact is Based on a Lie

When I challenge a statement and receive the reply "Oh, I don't know", I figure that the statement was not based on fact, since the issuer cannot bring forth a fact to justify the statement.

A non-fact is a supposition, a fabrication, a fantasy, not provably true, and hence probably not true.

In other words, a lie.

A statement based on a non-fact is a statement based on a lie.

And a decision based on (a statement based on) a lie, is always going to be a bad decision.

If only because there's nowhere to fall back.
