Not in this message thread, you didn't.

Provide an example, or shut up.

Thus committing the following wrongs:

1)  suggesting that I had asserted that "it must be true because it was
2)  comparing the documentary to anti-vaccine propaganda
3)  denying that you had made the comparison between the documentary and
anti-vaccine propaganda

Do you seriously expect us to believe that you don't understand what a
comparison is?  Do you really think we'll fail to notice your introducing
ideas into the discussion that weren't part of the arguments you're
supposed to be addressing?  Are you truly that stupid?

You are either consciously lying, or you ARE that stupid.  I see no reason
not to condemn you in either case:  you are unfit for civilized company.
