itsallova, I'm also going to encourage you to do a few things.
First, track down some evidence that, when seen by people who are not jaded by the junk that schools and the government tell us, will validate your
claims. If you were to go to court and share what you've told us, they would not buy a bit of it unless you give evidence. Why should we approach
your statements any differently? By telling us that your claims are true and if we don't believe you we're ignorant, it's not any different than
someone sitting down in front of the television and believing, without a second thought, everything that Fox News spews out. Trust me, if you can back
up your case, you will gain a lot of favor on this forum. If not, then you'll continue to be viewed as someone who is just spouting rubbish. I'm
sorry if that sounds harsh, but that's just the way it is.
Second, and this is not an attack on you, it would be of great benefit for yourself if you did work on improving your spelling, grammar, and general
presentation skills. There is an aspect of respect that comes with conveying thoughts and information in an intelligent way. Again, that's just the
way the world works. Someone who writes, "There was a second shooter at the JFK assassination!" is going to be much more well received than the
person who writes, "there waz 2 shooters that killd JFK!!1 y do u not beleve wat i am telling u???"
Third, please reconsider your view of history. Without history I'd still be following a religion that I now feel confident is the product of men, not
a god. Without history we would have no idea where we, humans, came from in terms of heritage, religion, science, etc. Without history our race would
have very little to look back on and learn from. History is a very valuable source of knowledge and lessons learned. Don't dismiss it simply because
they teach it in school or because you don't like it. Hopefully some day you'll see the value in it. But if, right now, you don't enjoy history,
that's fine. You should still give it the respect it deserves though.
And lastly, try to be less hostile. Not everyone here is going to jump on board with your statements and automatically agree with you. There are
people who read these forums who have spent years, and even have careers in working with information that is relevant to what you're posting about.
Just because you get a response that is not in agreement with you doesn't mean they're getting on your case or that you're completely wrong. It
just means that someone else knows something that differs from what you've stated. Rather than getting upset, try to approach their argument with the
intent of trying to gain more understanding and knowledge. That way you'll benefit from it instead of coming off as someone who is not willing to
consider that other opinions and statements could actually be true.
I hope I didn't seem as though I was attacking you. I'm not. You're a young person who has the benefit of being aware that the world is not what
the media and government would have us believe. That is a good thing! But you've come to a website that is visited by people of all ages,
backgrounds, beliefs, and professions. That is why I hope you'll come to the understanding that a civil approach to posting and conversation goes a
looooooong way in building knowledge and intelligence. Don't be discouraged by those who disagree with you, but also don't treat them like they
don't know what they're talking about. Treat them like adults and you'll gain respect much more easily.
