When I joined ATS I liked the fact that information regarding every concieveable topic was discussed. No matter what subject appeared the pro's and
con's of each theory was debated in an organised manner, no name calling, no issue was regarded as stupid by members or ridiculed.
Now it may just be me, BUT are people not actually questioning data? If I came up with a theory many people would believe me outright and many people
won't even research the topic but will believe anything which isn't the printed truth, basically from one extreme to another.
This sites motto is 'deny ignorance' but this should work BOTH ways. Not every person on here posts to actually raise awareness for particular
topics, some do it for the hell of it.. because they actually like the power gained from spreading what can only be classed as a lie and people
believing ever word.
Those people who actually question/ deny what they are being told are often critisised for their honesty and 'ignorance'. I can post afew threads on
this site where people aren;t questioning the information even though valid source material is over looked because people are often believeing
anything but the truth. [Mods: I'm not sure if i can post examples so won't do as of yet,].
So what am i trying to prove.. Well essentially nothing. I just want people to open their eyes both ways and look at both sides of the story. At the
end of the day not everything is a conspiracy. Too many posts aren't being analysed fully as people are afraid to appear ignorant or be attacked for
standing up for what they believe.
I do not want people's theories to be ridiculed (it does take time and effort when presenting a theory) but more people should question what they are
being told. The only way to gain knowledge is to ask.. or ask and you shall seek. So please stand up and do the research for yourselves, or even ask
members. Just ensure that you (as a conspiracy theorist) should not believe one source.
Ask and you shall seek...
