Without skeptics, ATS would lose all of it's hard-earned credibility. We need members who ask the hard questions after they dig into a topic.
But there's two types of skeptics...
There are those who will refuse to believe the 'official' line on anything, ( ie 9/11 or UFO swamp gas) without researching and testing all theories
Those who refuse to believe the opposite ( ie theories about alien visitation or the 9/11 conspiracies).
Both types are what make ATS what it is. They pit their minds against each other with critical thinking and facts, not just derisive
statements poo-pooing each other.
