Actually Simon, we do it because sometimes it's just fun to poke the head honcho with a stick.
In regards to the original post, I've been here a couple o'years now and I actually think that for the most part skeptics are a lot nicer around
here than at other sites.
And as stated before coming here to re-inforce your own beliefs isn't the goal of ATS but to learn the truth whatever it may be.
For example, I disagree with 99.99999% of the stuff that John Lear posts but had I not bothered to actually read the posts and engage in discussion
with members like John and others I never would have realized that John and I actually share some common beliefs when it comes to the Apollo
Other than that we don't agree or believe in the same things at all. But it never ceases to amaze me that even when you have two disparate views you
can still find something in common if you are willing to be open minded about the topic and the inherent wonkiness of proof in this field.
Just my two cents of course.
