If you don't agree, then you don't understand the logic of the argument. Or
else you suffer from the common misconception that seeing the validity of an
argument is the same as accepting the truth of its conclusions. (And it's
"indetermiNATE", please note - the word has a precise meaning in logic, and
should be spelled correctly.)

That's precisely what I said.
