How do you convince people this isn't a scam?

It seems an awful lot like a pyramid scheme to me.

People on the ground floor get really really rich, and create a whole new currency out of thin air.

AMD cards mine more money, so AMD adds fake value to their cards, selling more.

Everyone I told about bitcoins say its a pyramid scheme... so how do I convince them otherwise?

maybe you shouldn't try... some people are just stubborn and futher attempts at convincing them of something and they will just keep getting more defensive and building a wall between them and everything you try to tell them.

some people just have to discover things on their own.
