I think the fact that no one here has "disappeared" leads me to believe that nothing has been revealed that is actually true.
Which could, in some ways, apply to the entire ATS website. Why is it still here, unless not one single conspiratorial statement which has ever been
made here is true? Why hasn't whatever it is that destroys dissenters attacked here? Is the site protected by God?
Here is a fact I would like not
to be ignored: when I first started visiting ATS around '03, I came prepared
to weed through the BS,
with a bit of pre-acquired knowledge under my belt, and since then I have been able to fine-tune my own understanding of how bizarre this Universe
really is, at least as much as my small mind can comprehend at this time. How can there be a strong conspiracy site without clowns meandering among
the true seekers? . . as mentioned, I'm prepared for that. But I am basically fringe all the way, so over-the-top statements don't trouble me in the
least. I'm a person who lives by faith, and
studies the intricacies of science ... I believe you can't have one without the other, at least
not effectively. In my personal life I predict things based on gut-feeling, and into the 90-percentile range they actually bear out. This is true
whether I said it here or not, and the point is, when I see a respected, accomplished figure make wild statements, my first question is, "why did he
just say that?" and I want to learn more.
Since I already don't
know the answer to whatever question-of-the-moment I'm seeking, "so-and-so is crazy, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah"
with no counter-proof
of it becomes almost overwhelmingly annoying to me in my quest. I'm not here for that. Can you prove that John is wrong?
No, you simply start shooting tennis balls at him, perhaps hoping he will shut up? . . . ?? Instead, he continues to freely speak, on a free-speech
forum, in a country which used to be a model for speaking freely.
So until the skeptics lay out the proof that JL is wrong (and I will be glad to consider that, too) or I find it out myself, I will continue to
Thank you for your time.
