Hi, interesting thread although no true answer. (my first post by the way so excuse me if I am a bit long winded here - just a sign of enthusiasm)!
A conspiracy by its true nature never really gets solved - there are always sceptics searching for an alternative. When we are told the world is
round and we see NASA pictures of the world from space, that's it, done deal, it's as round as its going to get!
However, we see pictures of ufos all the time, but are categorised as manifested hoaxes, sometimes played out by so-called 'debunkers' - why? The
term itself (UFO) was created in an era of extreme scepticism (the beginning), it appeared everyone who was anyone reported everything out of the
This 'cry wolf' of the masses completely belittled any chance of such 'conspiracy theories' to be realised as genuine investigative allegations
(I.e. innocent until proven guilty). The stance therefore, adopted by the US Government? There's too many crazy people out there to tell them
anything meaningful, so treat them like mushrooms - feed them s*** and keep them in the dark. Does this sound like a 'Government' or a Government
being led by a 'secret Government'? Either which way you cut it, they are all the same - information is power, best keep hold of it!
In furtherance to this, there are simply too many people claiming too many things for any of it to make any holistic sense. (how many threads are
there on ATS alone at any one time? - Project Bluebook would be proud!) Lizards? Tunnels under the states? 14,000 mph trains - even then, they do not
create a sonic boom and therefore cannot be heard, why - they are contained within a vacuum! and so on. Where do we start? Try Hoffa and JFK, they are
still unsolved (the last time I looked, the driver did it, allegedly), and we are seeking the truth about something involving possibly the greatest
discovery of humankind!
Why ATS will never know the truth? A guy called 'Sleeper' (a 2005 / 06 thread on ATS) who apparently was whisked around the galaxy by the 'Grays'
etc etc was seriously ridiculed on his thread by countless posters wanting his life story - I know they were seeking out the detail in order to
establish some level of credibility, however, a person with such a story repeatidly stated that he had made a mistake coming onto ATS to share his
''experiences'' and no answer he gave appeared to be good enough (on a conspiracy site!!).
Tell the above stories and conspiracies to your school teacher, your sibling, your university professor, your doctor and they will tell you (other
than you need your head examined, twice!) that they have more important things happening in their lives such as work, family, mortgage etc. to worry
about if their cow is going to get mutilated. Not knowing doesn't harm the guy on the street. Ignorance is bliss, the truth hurts - which one do the
Nevertheless, there are only two scenarios regarding the truth which leaves a 50/50 chance of getting it right:
1. There is no such thing as extraterrestial beings of any intelligence and it is the greatest hoax of all time; or
2. Its generally true, and we (all 6+billion of us) have been treated like a herd of cattle (possibly for our own protection).
If 1 is true, what took so much effort and money to create this hoax, why and was it worth it? (possible secondary conspiracy leading to the
Illumanati, if it exists)?
If 2 is true, what becomes of the US government who has perpetrated such a wilful with-holding or neglect of the truth - does this also lead to the
downfall of the nationalised governments as we know them in favour for a central power? (anything different is always something better).
Even when I try to pick things apart, I am left with more questions than answers - ignorance is bliss!!
What do I believe? there's too much out there not to be out there.
