I for one am a skeptic of alot that is put on the internet because of the idea that and Tom, Dick or Jane can set up their own website and spew any
information they want that appeals to their specific agendas.
Its kind of like a persuasion speech online, people write stuff that may not be true in order for you to believe what the author believes.
Just because someone on a internet site says that 7 hijackers were not killed on Sept. 11th, simply doesnt make it true.
Im a skeptic until I can find something that in my own eyes is legitimate enough to believe. Something with a hint of doubt IMO is nothing worth
believing in because it will more than likely have conflicting facts.
Being a skeptic doesnt mean you have a closed mind, it just means that you arent as easily fooled as many other people IMO. You look at things more
analytically than emotionally. I would love to believe in Aliens and such and I keep a open mind on the issue, but when you have every Tom Dick and
Jane running on this website daily saying my sister saw a alien or my dog killed a alien or my pet turtle was abducted you take away alot of
crediblity from the whole topic.
When you have issues that are known that many "attention" seekers try to bring up, then it is alot harder to believe.
Catch my drift....Anyways I have to run, my daughter is kicking the # out of the dam grey that tried stealing my blender.
