Being a "skeptic" is a natural state. Just as being an atheist is a natural state. We are all born skeptics and atheists with a clean slate for a mind. But depending on your household, you'll be reared to either grow up as a skeptic/atheist, questioning everything and demanding evidence or you'll be brought up a religious/believer requiring no evidence for your mind will go through intense mental conditioning and you will wind up being an accepter.

Religious/believers will never know the freedom of an unfettered mind.

Another BS thread.

It's the people posting videos showing nothing of note and declaring them evidence/proof aliens etc exist that need the guidelines/help of a doctor.

You're assuming the people that are 'sceptical' have no military/aviation background when all that I've seen recently on here is 'evidence' that I'd be as well to show a goldfish.

Fuzzy BS videos are not evidence because they show nothing, it's not a difficult concept to grasp. People posting facts etc without sources or BS sources doesn't cut it either.

Post summat worthwhile i.e. legible or don't bother at all.

'Sceptical' people may be more willing to take theses claims seriously if some basic common sense is used.

I thought this thread had its time.But welcome are any new comments.
The position that you hold in your skepticism is fair place to be.
Having been converted from the other side of the line by undeniable 20/20 eye evidence.I do now try to pass on my journey from skeptic to now having no choice in knowing.
Thanks for posting and see you around on threads.
I mostly read but sometimes pop up.
Take care

I wouldnt term an athiest as natural.
Prior to control of the masses,you will find if researched that civilizations were more attune to knowing of being a spiritual being.Well the path that leads from there is another thread in its self.Though I DO NOT mean it in the god as is always depicted sense.Now that being does not exist.

Well we certainly know of your position and its not containing a dotted line.
The beginning of your post must have been a little taxing.
I suggest using the other brain cell.Yes im sure you have 2 and not one.Unfortunately evolution would have made sure of it for keeping balance.

You are wrong, my friend. Atheist means no religious beliefs. When you are born your mind is blank; no beliefs. As you grow in a religious household and the parents impress upon you the "reality" of god and jesus, your mind has no alternative but to accept the authority point of view. Eventually you lose the ability to question and you become a religious believer.

Look at it this way. While your mother-to-be is pregnat with you, she goes on a cruise and the ship sinks but your mother was able to get to a nearby island and you are born on that island. Then when you are a few years old and are able to run around tragedy befells your mom and she is killed. You, somehow, grow up on that island and are capable of fending for yourself. BUT you have had no religious mental conditioning. Guess what? You have no religious beliefs and you would be considered an atheist. You didn't develop a questioning mind because you accept your surroundings as just being and there is no one to ask questions of. But you sure as hell (!) have no concept of anything associated with any religion and will wonder what people are talking about when you hear (if you make it to "civilization") others talking about a god or a jesus. You won't be liked and you'll wonder why. In the meantime, you won't also realize you are a natural person, superior to believers.

You are supositioning as to what is my belief.
What I have gained to make my own beliefs true to me are from my own experiences,not by religions.
I have no connection with nor am I following any religion.

Having my brothers and my sphincter muscles tested when younger by the visiting of dead relatives and other spirit visitors to both of us (We did share a bedroom).We both seeing and experiencing this did help us to come to the conclusion that what religion did say was not what really was.

Our mum did tell of her abilities when we had said of what had occured to us.The only input from her was to say of not to be afraid.Left us with our own minds to find our way.
My brother is now a medium,as I to am at that level.But that is not my path.Mine is by the things I do for others.
We carry no religion,just our own knowledge of what we have and do still experience.

There's me explaining of my not being connected to religion and behold,
You've just become religeous.
Well you wouldnt put something as intellectually immature as that otherwise.
Would you??
