So your not astonished by the OP claim, just the reaction. You don't react to the OP not supplying any proof( even when a request for a pic of the
damage to the car gets blown of with a lame explanation of spoiler damage and black marks) yet rush to his defence.
The OP related something that happened to him. It may be true, it may be a perceived truth, or it may be a lie. The fact is we'll never know,
but at least there's the possibility that someone who experienced something extraordinary felt able to share it in this forum. I doubt however,
judging by the reception he got, that many others are going to be inclined to do the same. I know I wouldn't!
Yep, we see evidence of that don't we, people are just too scared to come on ATS and relate there experiences, predictions, theories, religious
beliefs etc (4 million of these).
Shame on those here who behave like close-minded, follow-the-crowd, harpies. It's the sort of attitude you expect in the MSM, not ATS. Very
So its ok for you to be hostile to other posts, and ridicule others as close-minded followers for ridiculing(i would say calling it for what it
is) someone else. Perhaps the very nature of this thread invites ridicule when held along side other threads of a similar topic that display a far
greater integrity(perhaps honesty) ATS users deserve. If ATS is just a stomping ground for the ridiculous and frivilous ramblings then replies
of that nature should be unsurprising and expected, and so you should defend those posts aswell. Otherwise you can just keep harping on about being
openminded and independant about following the crowd of experiences( its alien, i just know it) threads that we constantly see here. now thats sad.
I could argue that it is threads like this that keep people away from revealing there own personal experiences. Mainly for fear of having a vivid
and coherent explanation not given the brevity it deserves due to accounts like this.......the regularity of these accounts dilutes the extraordinary,
pollutes the environment it which we look at them and breeds intolerence, frustration and resentment in those that are truely seeking a forum to
share, discuss and learn.
I call alot of the responses to this thread as a weeding out under the tree of knowledge......BTW. You need a sense of humour, i did'nt see a
Therapy sign when i entered this site, did you.
