The definition I take of questioning is:
"To cast doubt on the statements made by someone. e.g. Question the veracity of a story".
For example, if the organization named A claims that B is a fact, if you question B are you also questioning A implicitly, or are you questioning just what A said/claimed?
This question arose in me when browsing the webpage of an organization of high IQ people who claim: "intelligence is innate". When I questioned it, some people ask me why I'm questioning the organization, then I clarify that I'm just questioning the claim they made, and then they told me that by questioning the claim itself I'm implicitly and directly questioning the organization too.
Questioning a person's claim or ideology also implies you are questioning the person itself? If correct, why?
e.g. questioning a politic ideology implies questioning the people who follow that same ideology?
Is questioning what someone claims and questioning the person itself inseparable?
Couldn't I just question the claim to find out if it's in deed true, considering useless to know and question who has made it? Would I also be questioning that person without my intention?
My POV is that I should be able to question the claim B by itself, without any need of questioning A, but just what A claimed or said (the claim itself).
Is any reason why this differentiation is incorrect?
EDIT: Other observations to narrow to make my point clearer:
AFAIK, doubting about a claim someone makes is not rejecting it, is opening the chance to reject it, just because you don't have enough proof yet to be sure if it's true. When I ask about implying the questioning of an organization/person/ideology when I'm questioning one claim it has made, I'm asking if FOR ALL cases this is true(i.e. it's implicitly for every case of doubting), not if it could be true sometimes, i.e. if besides my will and how people might usually operate regarding this, I'm doing it implicitly because of logical or/and linguistic reasons.
