I don’t think Autowrench in this post is trying to convert the disbeliever?Why do we need to try and convert people to believe in someone
Why would you not want to persuade all and sundry to the reality of what, if true, is a contact between sentient species? Is it not important, or even
imperative, to spread the word of alien contact, especially as they are bringing us such messages of import?
And what is wrong in trying to "convert" the disbeliever? To be honest, I would seriously question the veracity of any creed, or follower of a creed
who preaches the possibility of deliverance from an impending apocalyptic scenario but isn't bothered or even concerned if you believe it or not. And
if that's the case, then I would question the very essence of this "Pleiadian's" message.
Only the disbeliever has the ability to change their own mind. Searching externally for proof and obtaining it doesn’t necessary make the
disbeliever a believer automatically.
With respect, I don't agree. You are suggesting that it's down to the individual to choose whether the message is real or not, not the message's
ability to change minds.
I've read Lord of the Rings, and I know it isn't real even though it is one of the most impressively constructed and researched books in the English
I've read the Bible, and I am pretty darn sure most if it records real events that the contemporary authors struggled to recount.
Both had an affect on me.
Both made me think differently, and imparted on me an enlightened perspective, in varying ways. They influenced me. So why shouldn't the subject of
this thread do exactly the same thing? It speaks of things we only read of in sci-fi, and insists they are real and imminent
So why the give or take attitude?
It takes a person to question themselves their o
wn lives, their beliefs of their own existence, reasoning’s etc to come to terms with their own perception of reality.
My perception of reality is unshakeable.
I nearly choked to death not so long ago. A normal day could well have been transformed into something horrific for all my family. In those few,
panicked seconds, I was separated from the normal, arrogant invincibility of everyday existence and knew with absolute clarity
that I am
mortal. That we're all mortal and never far from finding that out. It was a lesson in the certainty of existence, and how tenuous our term on earth
Now, I want to know what that term is for. Why are we here?
My perception of reality always included the existence of aliens. I am
open to the concept of them arriving here in monstrous starships. If you
don't have access to the whole truth of everything, how can anyone
say with certainty that that scenario couldn't happen?
I'm just saying that I don't believe any extraterretrial would hand over such an important proclamation to bad orators.
If you want a story that has gravitas and humour and the other adjectives there are plenty of good books out there to read fiction or non –
That's just the thing! I think we are
I don’t think the Pleiadians always go to great storytellers to tell their messages too.. I could be wrong however?...Think its more about
sharing info than entertainment.
So why on earth would they go to ones who struggle to make themselves heard? How does that help their cause or, more importantly, ours? We're the
ones supposedly under threat. Wouldn't it have been a more prudent course of action for the "Pleiadians" to have approached gifted orators, or at
least proffessional communicators?
Any important declaration can be ruined very easily by the method of its delivery.
Maybe if ATS has a section for ATS - "pro copy only members" then that would bring better quality of reading perhaps.. lol
Yes, maybe it would!
But that would only compound the problem of sorting the wheat from the chaff if a pro writer decided to stir up some trouble!
