This is a very important subject indeed,
I am saying this for ages.
This moronic actitude of the "No proofs", can kill a place like ATS, and in a certain point of view, it have killed. IMHO going to a topic and ask
for proofs, in a place where we try to debate about the major misterys of the world, is a huge proof of the extremly Low QI, or show a secret
destructive agenda (Trolls, agents, etc), of the person asking this!
This week i even have sew in a topic something that schocked me:
In a certain topic, the OP explains something about a UFO video, and he says this one is of major importance because all the subject was analized by
some scientists, inclusive from nasa... so he shows the videos, and ask the people to see a certain TV show where all that important information can
be seen...so far so good...
Untill a so called "Skeptic" cames, full of he's proud, and talking like he was a SS nazi agent ordering this & that, saying that he dosen't have
to see no show at all, because he have not the proper interest to see it, and with no proofs at all to explain to him why he must see it, he will
don't do it!!
So trying to summarying, for him, the video was Trash because no proofs of enything was showed, and he refused to see the TV show where the proofs and
scientific facts could be seen... In his opinion, the OP was the one that should explain all the facts about the subject, instead to ask for people to
see a TV show!! With out this, for him, that topic must be closed by ATS...
I even don't have words to classify this kind of "Skeptic"
This kind of Behaviour will in the end transform ATS in a place where people wil have fear to share what ever from the bizarre and the Secretism, and
ATS will be a kind of place where people just will talk and debate about...normal news, like politics, terrorism, religion, etc.
Because all the debateble subjects, that do not have solid proofs to be real, will be just trashed and BS.
At the least for me, The spirit of ATS, the original one, was killed when some one chosed to forbiden reptilian topics in the ET forums...and allowing
them to exist only in the skunk works!!
It's this kind of "SS Nazi" policies, that can kill a site, and just give more strengh to trools and "skeptics" that just follow the "no
proofs" rule of action in every topic, like flys.
Reptilian subject, is a theory, are a mistery for many, and there are hundreds of books about it. So it never should be censored. It is a
"conspiracy" like all the others! If people was tired to see stupid Utube films about shapeshifting, but in the end, showing nothing at all, (and i
am included, because i have seen so many that was just trash), other options and rules must be taken, but never exile like the inquisition, all the
The same goes for other themes that are seeing like pure venom by many, like the hollow hearth theory.
IMO this is totaly against the site moto "Deny ignorance"!!
Sky...i think you also can add to this subject the "Nothing new" way of action!!
Thats another one that almoust all the skeptics use!..."Nothing new, it was debated already by many....so it was debunked, case closed, nothing to
Well... a subject can be extremly debated by years, (Like Atlantis as a exemple), but as far as i know, untill today, no real proofs of it's
existence, geography, etc, exists! So... nothing new, in a new debate about Atlantis?...possible, but that dosen't turn right away the topic a Trash
(Sorry for my bad English Grammar mates)
