Okay let's cut to the chase. Do you believe in reptilian's?


I want to chirp in.

YES.

I believe it is entirely possible that in this universe there does exist a sentient and intelligent species that takes the form of what we would call "reptile".

The difference between me and a conspiracy theorist is that I will not believe that the Queen is a reptilian with out proof.

Its about knowing where the line is, that's the other thing that leads to all these crazy conspiracy theorists not knowing were the line between was is reasonably possible and what is wandering into the realms of science fiction.

I get your point yes somewhere in this universe there could be a race of reptilian's. I should've clarified my position as to do you believe reptilian's have Inheritage all the positions of power on this planet?

It gets so tiresome on this site when people know the point you're trying to make. But they take advantage of a word/ phrase being excluded.

I think the problem is you are bieng so vauge about what you think is "GOOD" and what is "BAD" in yur view.

You asked a question in yes or no format which has I imagine several thousands of pages on ATS alone, never mind other forums and books ect.

God save us from the Gate Keepers...


I've been of a mindset to suspect conspiracies most of my adult life. Over 40 years at least. I was very suspicious of major media since as we all know it can be biased and incomplete for a variety of reasons. With the advent of the internet my thoughts along with many others were "great, now we will no longer have to rely on information filtered by the 'gate keepers.'"

However, what has happened is that a huge segment of the population, perhaps the majority, are not capable of acting as their own "gate keepers" when faced with the ocean of information now available much of which is unreliable. Just in the last few years I'm starting to realize that in many (not all) cases the best sources of information actually are old school media outlets--for example, big newspapers with actual journalists who are at least making an attempt to objectively investigate and adhere to some semblance of journalistic standards.

Plenty. JFK, the US government kills people intentionally US citizens within the boundary is what I'm speaking of, Ufo's ( sightings with good proof like Phoenix not all the CGI crap) Russia's new imperial ambitions which seem to be spoken down on this site, Big oil controlling prices, the major banks controlling the currency those are just a few that I believe in.

But as long as were discussing whether Hillary Clinton is a reptile, and whether a rock on Mars is a true animal, no one will give us any credit for any of our theories.

Well, it is hard to say what theories are true and what aren't because that is the nature of a conspiracy. I believe that where there is smoke there is fire so any theory with enough buzz at least deserves to be considered.

I apologize for being a Vague when common sense should apply. I'm sure that video must've pissed off some of the members. One thing I forget on a CT site is that very few people have a sense of humor.

Your next post may be the last post I ever read.

You've been asked several times which conspiracies do you consider real and you've answered with which you consider fraudulent.

What is your issue?

The last thing ATS needs is another prevaricator.

With an attitude.

I get what you are saying, sorry.

But I was also trying to point out how its possible to believe in something as crazy as reptilians with out it being some crazy conspiracy. It only becomes a little bit nutty when you cross that line

You have no need to appologise for bieng vauge, you just need to understand that if you are looking for an answer to a question then you need to give at least a modicum of clarity to expect a decent answer.

I doubt you have upset anyone with the video, it was okay but please do not be under the impression that it was in anyway a new concept.

As for a lack of sense of humour on ATS you have obviously been reading the wrong threads


Also have you seen some of the avatars on here? hardly taking it all to serious.

You have to be very careful with that criterion. There are a lot of theories with a lot of "buzz" because they are resonating with mythic cultural themes. Reptilians, Nibiru/Planet X, alien abductions all come to mind.

I'm sorry you don't seem to be able to understand a direct question.

I hope you find what you're looking for here.

See ya.

You're welcome at least you are man enough not to admit you were wrong when I listed real conspiracy theories.

I hope you find someone else to intentionally irritate on the site because it seems like that is your goal. Cheers

People theorize about a subject that they think is a conspiracy. Best case scenario, the people who are theorizing come up with concrete proof.

What then? What do you do when you prove a conspiracy to be true? If people came up with proof that 99% of the population can agree with that 9/11 was an inside job......for example.......what then? What could us peons do that would actually change the behaviors of the people who did that to where they would never do it again?

Apparently nothing. Money still rules the school.

The point is, this is probably why some CT's come up with the crazy theories that they do.........they run into a brick wall when they prove something to be true.

Not once, here or elsewhere, have I ever seen or heard people taking a conspiracy that was proven.....to the next level. That being, doing something to prevent it from happening again, or doing something to ensure more transparency and honesty in the future, so there is no possibility of a future conspiracy in the same vein. Basically, conspiracy theorists don't know how to turn the tables and do the conspiring themselves for something positive.

Not every conspiracy has to have negative connotations, implications or actions. You guys do know that, right?

Instead, they turn to the reptilian shape shifters for entertainment.

I would hazzard a guess and say that it is not uncommon for a newer member to make a generalised statement making sililar claims to your OP.

If I may make a suggestion you would be better of trying to make a decent thread about what you do believe in and why as opposed to a generalised one on what you think others should not believe.

I hope you take this in the positive way it is intended.

I understand your premise. But there is one subject that is touchy for me. And that is that your vote doesn't count! I believe that is something started by the government a conspiracy within a conspiracy to make you feel powerless and your vote doesn't count.

It is a lot easier to cover up voting fraud if you have only a 30% turnout like we do presently. If everyone got out and voted and we had a 90% turnout they would not be able to rig the elections. So think of that and remind the next person that says their vote does not count that if we all voted our votes would count.

On topic----I think where this is most dangerous is with the topic of how a minority of individuals and entities manipulate the financial system to their advantage. This isn't actually much of a secret conspiracy. It's right out there for anyone to see. However, when you start adding in other fantastical elements to the story it does make it more likely people will tune out. This isn't any new development as you've had (for example) the anti-Semitic and anti-Masonic component for a very long time with the story veering into implausible territories from there. I'm not sure if the weirdness is qualitatively different in the internet era but such theories are more available and being subscribed to by more people.
