The typical thought process for a lot of CTers seems to be "I believe the official story is a lie, therefore I will go looking for evidence that helps
this position (and only evidence that helps this position)".
Rather than the rational person's thought process, which should be: "I don't know what happened here, so I will seek out as much evidence as possible,
and weigh it up and come to my own conclusions."
Working backwards from the conclusion you want to draw is a surefire way of ending up with circular logic and flawed arguments.
I remember pointing out on a different forum that a video
supposedly showing Elenin or Nibiru or
whatever doomsday flavour of the month was quite clearly an aircraft contrail lit up by the sunset, which anyone who walks around with their eyes open
pretty much anywhere in the western world must surely have seen several times in their life. I was told that I was clearly a government shill trying
to "Hide the Truth" by spreading disinformation about aircraft. Yup, Elenin is on the way, so therefore anything that looks a bit odd in the sky is
definitely proof, and anyone who points out your mistake is working for The Man. Er, okaaayyy...
(Meanwhile three years later and we still haven't been assimilated by Planet X, as I was assured was happening)
I see, and your views are based on anything else but your own preconceived notions?
My views are based on weighing up evidence, as I said above. I find that in the real world that tends to get better results than a combination of
scientific ignorance, poor observational skills and paranoia, which seem to be at the root of a lot of CTs.
I love a good conspiracy theory, but there are so many around that don't even stand up to the smallest bit of scrutiny that let the side down. Why do
people come up with rubbish like chemtrails or Apollo hoaxes, which can be debunked by anyone with even the most basic understanding, when there are
much more interesting things that are REALLY going on in the worlds of surveillance, finance and so on?
