I thoroughly appreciate everyones points of view. But if you go into UFOs/Aliens now and you count the ratio of serious threads to the complete trash
threads, the trash wins hands down.
It's getting harder and harder to find a decent thread to contribute to... and to be honest, I personally feel my interest start to wain... as do
The best part of being at ATS for me is that I've become more of a skeptic and this is squarely due to trolls, liars, hoaxers and mentally unstable
people that are destroying the serious research into the phenomena whilst at the same time doing absolutely nothing to improve the stereotypical image
of UFOlogy, thus keeping us in the wacko bin with the rest of them - the laughing stock of all the Joe Publics.
I believe less now than I ever did! So if anyone ever blames me for being skeptical of their story, it's not really my fault but more due to the
mechanisms in play here at the forum. The sheer amount of obvious crap that fills the boards in an unfettered fashion.
Thankyou ATS for making me wiser and a far more critical thinker! I will do my best to go on denying ignorance... as should we all.
To wrap up, I feel it is slightly ignorant to believe we have a perfect system. You can point to many analogs in history where societies, businesses,
monarchies, governments and religions felt the same way and all of them eventually fail in some way or another.
Nothing in this world is perfect and everyone, even the Three Amigos (whom I respect greatly) should be open to change. It's sad that I haven't seen
that displayed here... not even the slightest consideration but more a steadfast stance solidified in mortar. A shame to be sure.
