One other suggestion is to read the FAQ which give guidelines for discussion. Try to stay on topic (though we all wander off on occasion…) and save the grilling for ideas and assertions, not people.
Now, let us return to the topic of the post, discussion of the Christian response to conspiracies. Perhaps I am less gracious than the authors, but I do disagree at least in part with their statement,“We do not question the motivation of such people.” I may be cynical, but feel that while in a discussion forum like this we should not question motivation, in the greater world motivation is very important and gives insight as to why people do and say what they do. And if they say it not about the money, it is usually about the money. Often, their worldview is tied up so closely with an issue, that they are unable to be objective because of the personal threat to their psyche.
With the Covid-19 situation, I think we see those things and more driving the Christian community in their positions taken. Money seems to underlie the issue of when to open and whether to lock down. Among my friends and neighbors, the ones pushing to open quickly are either financially challenged by the lockdown, or are closely aligned with those who are. One the other hand, those who tend to be dogmatic about staying closed, tend to be more secure financially, and identify strongly with either the politics or the science, which is not the same thing though lumped together by the opposing side.
In any case, while we try to argue the issues, a big part of understanding a person and responding to them in love is understanding their motivation.
