I think there are several reasons:
1. ATS is a conspiracy website.
2. There's a lot more information out there than there was 10 years ago, and certainly a S# ton more information than there was 20 years ago. The
Internet, good or bad, has opened the doors to the world and much of the information in it. So, to this end, a credible "conspiracy theory" doesn't
stay 'credible' very long. Things like UFO's and bigfoot are much more easily debunked now than they ever were. This is due in part to dramatic
improvements in camera and video technology...and of course, the Internet.
3. The true "conspiracy" theories, things like the NWO, shadow governments and false flag operations were once way out there on the fringe of
conspiracies, real tin-foil hat stuff. Now, people have seen these things become reality right before their very eyes. So what was once 'fringe'
conspiracy has now become mainstream conspiracy...and even reality in some cases. Your TV really does listen to you, and your computer really does
watch you...and no amount of tin-foil will change this. But one has to ask why? Why do all these things occur? And, the answer to this is, because
people in positions of power can use this information to their advantage. So who are these people in positions of power? Well, politicians certainly
rank high on this list. In other words, the REAL conspiracies of the modern day IS politics and power. Bigfoot and UFO's hold a very distant
backseat to these subjects.
4. Because, after all, ATS is a "conspiracy" website.
Footnote - As for this constant yammering about a right-bent on ATS, that's just hogwash and sour grapes. Just 3 years ago you could have made the
exact same argument about a left-bent on ATS. I openly admit being conservative, but I get posts deleted just like everyone else does. I see no bias
in the moderation of this forum. (On a partisan note, I think the left whines more loudly about it, but that's the nature of their platform...to
whine, but that's just my opinion.) I joined ATS in 2013 (6 years ago) and at that time it appeared like ATS leaned so far left I feared I would
never even fit in and would eventually get the boot. However, upon closer inspection I found the one thing I really loved about ATS, and this was it
promoted differing views and debate. It forced you to think about what you were posting, knowing full well there would be those who disagreed.
Knowing you might have to debate to prove your point or view. It was the core spirit of ATS.
Lastly, the facts are; if you want to post something about Bigfoot, or UFO's or anything else, you are welcome (encouraged even) to do so. They may
get shot down quickly with facts, but the really enduring "conspiracies" of the current times are in politics and current events around the globe.
Again, because after all, ATS is a conspiracy website.
