So here's something I've noticed, and it's been a pattern that has been hard to quite place my finger on, rather irritating at times, but here it
is. There seem to be three or four different principles in operation here, especially on this board that keep showing up in interactions, namely the
arguments between "believers" and "skeptics." See, apparently we all live in a world of just "people who believe" and the kinds of people who
will inhabit a screen name to just go down a list of things saying "that's stupid, that's stupid, that's stupid, on and on ad nauseam as if
that's the point of things, to be that bad-ass buster. Somewhere in there, though you have sociopaths or narcissists or whatever, you dont really
see those because apparently they're in the background doing whatever nefarious things...come to think of it I don't really know. And then you have
the explorers. They explore. Now I've done my fair share of skeptical things but I also hold myself out as an explorer otherwise whoopdidoo why
would I be here? So I can't help but get irked whenever I see a person running down a list if things going "huh that's dumb, huh that's dumb, huh
that's dumb" with virtually no effort to discriminate. So here it goes, I, the 98% skeptic am telling you to please just shove it.
Now what I've noticed about some of that is that some people don't "like beliefs." They place themselves in a false paradigm where
they=sceptic=gooood. Beliefs=monkeys=baaad. They've mimicked somewhere that that's part of the game. Where they see "belief activity" they swoop
in and play the part of "skeptic." But what they can't see is that there are explorers, adrenaline junkies, yes trolls, and people behind a screen
whose motives they really don't know. Is someone schizo who does and says anything maybe heaven forbid like ever? Well who knows, and I guess who
cares? It's like this little funny game people are playing, oooh, I don't want to be called crayzeeeee. SIGH. Come on dude. If you're going to
be a skeptic at least do it right.
