You're also allowed to be delusional (as long as you don't do anything illegal).
Ain't it grand?

Have a grand time.

Whatever your explanation for your alleged experiences is, it's not good enough for me.


I couldn't care less what you believe. This is America, you are allowed to be ignorant. In fact it's encouraged.


Not to start a flame war but are you implying that I, along with millions who share my opinion are also ignorant? Isn't that the same as saying that you are special because you claim to have an experience that is just that, a claim?

If you were to start a thread describing your alleged experience, it might be well attended to and I would be tempted to peek in to see what you and others say. But have you noticed that tales of alien interaction on this forum have dropped in numbers compared to 5-10 years ago when it was possibly the hottest topic going on here. No more greys, no more reptilians, no more Whitley Strieber of the hoaxer Travis Walton. Times do change.

Well, I did not say that, clearly.
But if you really want an answer, then, yes.
You see, words have specific meanings, and here is a dictionary definition of the word 'ignorant':

"- lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular."

You are not aware that alien abductions are real, correct?
Then in what sense would that not meet the definition of the word?

I am as ignorant as any person, on any number of things. That goes without saying.
But I'm not unaware, or ignorant, of alien contact.




Isn't that the same as saying that you are special because you claim to have an experience that is just that, a claim?


Is it? I don't think so. Nothing rare or "special" about alien contact, there are many, many people with experiences just like mine.




But have you noticed that tales of alien interaction on this forum have dropped in numbers compared to 5-10 years ago when it was possibly the hottest topic going on here.


Yes, because people who are ignorant of their experiences drove them all away. Who needs the reaction they get for speaking honestly about their experiences? Reactions like yours?




No more greys, no more reptilians, no more Whitley Strieber of the hoaxer Travis Walton. Times do change.


Both of those men spoke the truth about their alien encounters.
Yes, times do change, and every year shows a higher percentage of Americans who believe the government is covering up alien contact.

Source?

Not that an appeal to popularity carries any weight, being a logical fallacy. But I'm curious.

It's your claim.
You cannot support it?

If you were delusional, you wouldn't really know it. That's kind of what it means.

Your opinion isn't my concern.

Neither, apparently, is your credibility.

I'm really not concerned with your opinion. I'm just not interested, no offense. Thanks.
