Do the two that-clauses below bewilder you too? How can they be rewritten more basically?
1 flummoxes me as it contains 2 "opinion"s. But I grasp that "opinion is held on reasonable grounds" modifies, and thus is the, "false statement of fact".
2 flummoxes me as it contains 2 "intention"s. I grasp that
a false statement of fact that intention/opinion is actually held = You don't actually hold that intention/opinion.
But what the heck does it mean to intend a false statement of fact that intention (opinion) is actually held?
