Funny that if NASA says something that is proven false then nothing they say can be trusted ever again but a known hoaxer or hoax site should be given the benefit of the doubt. Interesting...

If our experience with a particular website is that they don't use logic or rely on evidence to come to conclusions, how can they possibly come to a correct conclusion in a logical and evidence-based way? Just because they are right sometimes doesn't mean that is the case because of proper investigation and analysis. If they are prone to using extremely flawed analysis, why do we have to take each of their conclusions and evaluate them? Why not just go to a better source, even if it has a different conclusion?

I see a plethora of posts stating various doom porn du jour, usually that some awful terrible thing will befall the planet Earth. I click on the link to see where the article came from. It is always some website I have never heard of and would not get my news from if it were the last website on Earth!
There is no science, logic, or common sense, just a bunch of Armageddon crap! In many cases it's a blog from some nutcase that has been endlessly debunked. Even worse, sometimes it's from a known hoax site like sorchal faal or BIN.
But when challenged, the people who post this crap say "you're a shill/ sheep lie/govy agent".
Whatever you want to call those of us living in the real world.
I just find it annoying to no end. Have some common sense! Consider the source! Ugh.

I'm with you OP. Do you also find it annoying when people cast
threads, that belly ache and moan about threads that annoy them
personally? It's like they expect everyone to come to them and make
sure thier most recent effort, doesn't annoy them personally. In fact,
I even hate in thread posts of such an annoyance. I mean when do
they finally realise nobody gives a fiddlers #### what annoys them?
