Hello,
Which one is correct and why? Could you please explain?
Thank you.

◆If someone attempts to insult you by implying you aren't intelligent, and you respond with poor language/writing skills, or insults and illogical reasoning, you just may prove that what they say is true.

Hello,
the three are correct, there is no difference between the three sentences.

Hello,
There is a subtle ie slight difference in my opinion in the three sentences which few if any (ie no) English speakers would notice or care about anyway (unless it was written):

◆1) If someone attempts to insult you by implying you aren't intelligent, and you respond with poor language/writing skills, or insults and illogical reasoning, you just may prove that what they SAY is true.

◆2) If someone attempts to insult you by implying you aren't intelligent, and you respond with poor language/writing skills, or insults and illogical reasoning, you just may prove that what they SAID is true.

◆3) If someone attempts to insult you by implying you aren't intelligent, and you respond with poor language/writing skills, or insults and illogical reasoning, you just may prove that what they said WAS true.
1) is hypothetical all in present tense!
2) SAID is in past tense but must be after all the other clauses so arguably all the verbs should be in a past tense
3) SAIS WAS is better

so another one you can add is:

4) If someone had attempted to insult you by implying you weren't intelligent, and you responded with poor language/writing skills, or insults and illogical reasoning, you just may have proven that what they said was true.
