Hey, I'm not even saying there's a conspiracy.
Most of the conspiracies I've seen floated in this forum just make me smile and shake my head.
I don't want to seem too hard on HIFIGUY
, really. I do understand the sentiment. Believe me, I really do.
One of ATS's most popular threads on 9-11 is just, well... let's just say I'm with SkepticOverlord
on that one.
BUT -- and this is a really big, fat BUT -- I'm glad it's there, because truly, that's what ATS is all about.
Just because some members float some crazy ideas (heck, I do -- and often, I might add) doesn't mean other members have to buy into them.
In fact, I recommend the exact opposite. I strongly encourage all ATSers to maintain a healthy skepticism about everything.
Like Ozzy says, "If you think you're right, you're wrong, and if you think you're wrong, you're right."
Mature discretion is advised on ATS, which means not jumping on every theory and believing it.
But the other side of that same coin is not dismissing ideas just because they seem
crazy, because refusing to even consider theories that
differ from one's own is literally just as bad as believing all of them.
Both are policies of self-deception, and both contrary to the pursuit of Denying Ignorance.
And now, back to "U.S. government-trained chupacabras chewed through the levees in New Orleans (includes shocking PHOTOS!!!!)".
