Half the people on this forum (I feel) are nutcases or just idiots. I wonder if they have any comprehension of reality. Do they live in basements
smoking pot and just bumping ideas off sympathising friends until they have no
idea what is really happening anymore? That's all I can
I don't have a problem with conspiracy theories, otherwise I wouldn't be here. I do however have a problem with no evidence or facts or science or
anything else that would otherwise prove a point.
Hell, half of the threads I see explicitly state that "they cant provide evidence so don't ask, I'm telling the truth". Blah. What a weak
"Hey guys, I'm the king of the universe. I also created god, how do I know this? It was encoded in my spirit before I was concieved. I don't care
if you don't believe me, I'm right!".
That sort of jibberish. If that isn't ignorance, I don't know what is.
The problem with these forums is that they're too popular and too far-out. There's no rules that say you need some form of evidence, there's no
mods deleting totally demented threads either. I mean you'd think that people could at least post the really ridiculous stuff in one board, but they
dont. Also, isn't that what Skunk Works is for? It's underused.
Anyway it's easy to rant but there's just so much stupidity on these forums, it often makes me want to stop coming here. I try to steer clear of a
lot of that now.
People will flame this and call me ignorant. Again, that's only founded if I'm seeing facts and denying them. The problem (just to state it.. AGAIN)
is that people either provide no facts/evidence, or their 'evidence' is a story they told with nobody around, or they were on 6 drugs, or they say
the evidence was eaten by the dog...
Ergh. I wish someone would crack down on all this but I think some of the site owners post things themselves that match the 'no evidence' critera.
So we're screwed there. I can't offer a solution.
That's my 2c. Controversial post I know. Everything here is just my opinion, yada yada, the usual.
Edit: One thought too. Often the threads with actual evidence and so on are long, hard to read and probably hard to take in if you're a wacko who
things that really ridiculous things are occuring around us all the time. The last point I mention there because evidence rarely supports the really
far out theories, so who will bother reading a thread that debunks them?
It's much easier for people to just see a stupid alarmist/sensationalist video going "ALIENS REPTILES US CONGRESS NASA FAKE LOLOL" with music from
Linkin Park that reinforces their beliefs in 3 minutes and takes no effort to watch.
Edit2: Just before someone mentions it, I'm not flaming mods or the site owners. I'm just saying that they're human too and have the same views as
many of the posters here... Sadly some of those posters don't think credible evidence is neccessary...
