Alright, falling under the category of "debunker", I'd like to join in this debate.
Most of us at ATS do believe that something else is out there. Conspiracy's, UFO's, ghost's, etc. Either through personal experience, curiousity or
There are different category's of ATS member's. There are pro's and con's to each type. There are the debunker's (like myself) who don't believe
anything until there is undeniable evidence that can't be debunked at all lying before us. We believe that 95% of what is posted on these forums are
false or made up. The pro is that we won't be fooled as easily and if we do find a little piece of evidence that is undeniable, it'll be just that.
Undeniable. The con is that if something does pop up that is genuine, but takes a resemblence to something else, we'll probably blow it off as
There are those who are neutral and like to look at all the evidence before making a decision (where as the skeptic/debunker will generally have our
minds made up after the first few seconds of video footage). There are the believer's. They realize that every video or photo could possibly be real.
Although some of them can be very intelligent people, most of them spend more time trying to prove that it's real then looking at the truth that it
may be nothing more then a helicopter or an airplane. Then, there's those that aren't very intelligent at all, but post anyways.
A lot of our posters are very investigative (I consider myself to be one of those posters) and we won't stop until we get answer's.
Anyway, my point is that you are referring to a portion of ATS. For example, if we did a pie chart, the debunker's (the members that you are
referring to) are only a piece of the pie. Sometime's, we can get quite annoying. Just when you think you have sure proof that aliens exist, here we
come running with a piece of paper in one hand and a piece of toilet paper sticking out of our butt's and our pant's not even pulled all the way up,
to tell you that you're wrong. Forgive us.
For a lot of member's, the video's and picture's provided on ATS are enough. For some of us, it isn't. We need more before we call all our friends
and tell them that they're being spyed on by aliens.
