Although I do like the results of this study, I still take no notice whatsoever of these stupid studies. They are meaningless.

I consider myself a pragmatist and a skeptic.

We all do.

Agreed, if anything I am a crack-pot weirdo bordering on insanity. Lucky for me though, I'm right and everyone else is wrong, unless they believe in the same crap that I do, then they are not wrong, just insane.



Rather than post anything, I'll just say ditto

I'm hard core, show me some evidence and I will come along for the ride. But don't try and make me believe, or insult me because you haven't provided concrete evidence and I'm still skeptical.

I always say follow the money, invariably all this conspiracy stuff is about some stooge trying to get more wealth illegally or getting you to up their clicks on youtube for cash.


i know what you are saying but evidence is not always available to people like us. Follow your heart too. We all have to open our minds, even just a little bit otherwise we could miss something vital.

Looking at the way corporations and govts conduct themselves we have to assume not everything we are told is true. They are just human after all and they have the resources to hide things well.

I meant we all think that of Phage. He is predictable and sticks to his guns in that respect. Good quality whether you agree or not, for me usually not. No offence.

Oops ... Sorry ... Got the wrong end of the stick yet again

The only thing about Phage that is predictable is Phage himself

He is a natural law
If Phage did not exist it the Universe would create one

Neither actually..

Skeptic.



There has never been any proof that skeptics exist.

I doubt that.


Of course, you would.

I'm a skeptic. Providing proofs is not part of the description.



Yet you demand proofs? Only proofs from others will do, but you fail to provide it yourself to support your opinions?

I dont see the logic.

Just when you learn to accept your insanity, they come and pull out the rug from underneath you. This is the biggest conspiracy of all. They are trying to make us feel normal and normal people believe the conditioning they are fed.

I do?
I often ask for evidence but I don't recall asking for proof. But I could be wrong about that.

I think some of the UFO investigators like Glenn Campbell the author of the Groom Lake desert rat back in the early 90's were critical thinkers. The average UFO investigator visiting "take me to your dealer" sites with extra terrestrial links I'm not so sure about. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar and a spliff is just a spliff, but what if you are a non smoker like Monica Lewinski?

You like the results of the actual study?

Or the results claimed by the headline?

Skeptic.


But refuse absolutely to be skeptical of what lying ass
politicians are telling you? Why are you only skeptical of
those who dare become skeptical of obvious liars?
Selective skeptic? I don't see myself as a truther but
rather so fed up with government BS I'm skeptical of
everything they say and do. I think it comes down to
trust. That's all. And if you think the folks running things
can be trusted? Then can I ask you what won you over?
I can't find anything and shouldn't have to look very hard.

I notice that among conspiracy theorists that there are some that are quite insane compared to the majority. We have seen them even here. It is people completely off their rocker that gives us all a bad name. People here like Phage will make you look more critically at things you may have not before. That kind of scrutiny is what sets ATS apart from the rest imho.

Personally, I am sure people think I am a bit insane when I discuss some of the things we do here. I do think that the mental exercise we go through when we analyze various topics makes us better at having an open mind and also being more critical about things than most. I would rather come to ATS to see what the analysis is than the consensus of the MSM or the general public. We have a concentration of critical thinkers here and we all know that many things that were conspiracies long ago have been found out to be true today. Things like false flags to start wars come to mind.

yep. this site saves me the $50/month I'd have to pay to be a MENSA (which, bad name because in Spanish that means idiot lol) member.

questioning things instead of blindly accepting things is better. old news. socrates told us this already.

autonomous moral agents FTW

ofc. madness is separated by a fine line from genius.


sucks that the bad eggs are the kooky konspiracy nut stereotype.

But that's how it usually works
