I agree with you, no one should ask for proof or be skeptical at all and we should all blindly accept things and not think critically.
The moon is made out of blue cheese and no one can disagree with me so i just think everything is so much better without thought or testing or truth.
No one should ever ask for proof or point out there is no proof.
That'd be silly.

Yes there is division and this division is brought about by idiots who blindly believe in themselves and the reality the live in. This false reality subdues their creativeness forcing them to adopt one of two choices; believer or skeptic. It's very sad to see threads die not because of the "there's no proof" comment" but the creator of the thread replying in a fashion that derails the thread.
This "there's no proof" crowd are stuck in illusion of reality and will not falter. What the fools of both sides must learn is that, since he demands proof or he blindly believes he is against my opinion. Yet just because someone is against your opinion doesn't make them wrong in anyway. We here at ATS need to grow up and value the opinions of others. We shouldn't be so quick to believe or criticize, and we must ALWAYS keep our minds open.

Not many people do self-motivated research, they only accept what's common among the herd.

Conducting an act of conspiracy, cover-up. a hidden-agenda or an act of ill-intent implies removing proof and evidence of it entirely.
A criminal who murders someone and wants to go undetected, will do his best to get rid of any evidence for the act.
A control-freak who monitors his employees will do his best to keep this hidden from them.
A government official who sees a leak of knowledge to the public as hazardous, will do everything in his power to conceal and never reveal.
And so, in case of cover-ups, we are left with very scant evidence...if any.
We have to do real detective work...speculate...extrapolate...connect dots... dismiss preconceptions...consider every angle...consider and re-consider...collect and discard information...
The work of the conspiracy-researcher is inhibited by what I´d here like to call The moronic tyranny of the "there´s no proof" crowd. This tyranny prevails in society, and on a smaller scale on this website.
Someone will engage in speculative conspiracy theory, and someone will come in and say
"There´s no evidence. None whatsoever"
"There´s no proof"
"There´s no point in making a thread about this, because there´s no proof"
"You´re crazy because there´s no proof for this"
This type of pointless comment can be seen here by the minute. While you are reading these words, some moron somewhere is telling a conspiracy-theorist: "There´s no proof of this".
How have hoards of people having been brainwashed into the idea that we should only talk about whats already known?
