ArMaP you're annoying like all skeptics are. You must remember that I'm a believer, not a skeptic, and I could never believe in anything a skeptic says, don't you dig that? And if you're a skeptic why do you and people like you insist on being in this forum. This is a believers' forum. You go to your own little skeptic forum box for closed-minded people like you.

NoRunRichard I think you are confusing skeptics with debunkers. A true skeptic holds a neutral position so is not biased towards fake or real. He examines the evidence and then comes to a well thought out conclusion.
I agree with you that the debunkers are annoying and should not be taken seriously. The skeptics however are a great asset to ATS in my opinion. Without them ATS would be some sort of dreamland.
I'm a believer myself but I know very well that there is no irrefutable proof for the existence of ET. So in the end I'm here to get to the truth, whatever the truth may be.
Lastly in my opinion you are not doing anybody any favours with your comments. I think that believers should also examine the evidence as best as possible and come to a well thought out conclusion. There is to much nonsense flying around and blindly believing everything is not doing the UFO field any good.
And no this board is not for believers only.

You are not the first person to say that, both sceptics and believers.
Does that mean that you don't believe that I saw a thread before where people said those photos were from an old mannequin from the Roswell Museum?
I was not the one who said that, other people said it, didn't you saw the thread whose link I posted?
I can only speak for myself, and I am on this forum because I can and because I like it.
Strange, I did not saw anything about it when I signed up, maybe we should ask Simon Gray about it, after all he was the one who created ATS, he should know.
Closed-minded? Right, if you say so it must be true, after all you know me for so many years, right? You must think you know me better than myself...

I saw it. Most likely those people who said that are skeptics and they're probably planting the seed of doubt to everybody about that photo.
but there are serious Ufologists and people who have the real evidences in their possessions.

What I've personally seen in this 1300+ thread is an intolerable amount of faulty reasoning and special pleading meant more to attack the skeptic, and thus lower his or her standards, rather than back up or support the claim of alien existence. The true intentions here have been made quite clear time and again.

Why are these things far-fetched?
In a universe where only 4% is known and 96% is unknown, how can it be far fetched?
......A real skeptic doesn't know and this is why they are skeptical in the first place. If they had ABSOLUTE knowledge about these things, then there no longer skeptics.

I don't dispute that there is life elsewhere in the universe. I do have a problem with people thinking that 15 different races have visited us here on this little speck of rock orbiting a fairly small star in a non spectacular part of the Milky Way galaxy to visit a fairly primitive (to these interstellar traveling races) civiliazation is a little too much for me.
If mankind were to visit another civilization on another planet, don't you think we would have left some record of us visiting them? Why would 15 races come here and leave no traces for us?
