I believe in conspiracies. There are --real-- legitimate conspiracies, that is for sure. I even had, well, 'things' happen to me. I want to
broach a sensitive matter, though. Oh I'm really walking on eggshells with this one. When you read someone go on, here, about scary occurrences
that they percieve, and it sounds real crazy to you, do you not voice your opinion? Because for all you know, they could be right? But if the
reality is, that the person is ill and needs to be on meds, is it still better to leave that one alone? Sometimes I believe that I see people
encouraging someone who seems obviously to me, uh, 'mispercieving'. But then I say to myself, "what if their stories of persecution are true?"
It's like the ufo topic. If someone is posting a ufo picture, I think it is right for skeptics to critique it, as long as it's not in a mean way.
But the catch 22 is, that someone will say, "if you are being skeptical, that is mean to me". I remember when I would try to tell people about some
"things" that happened to me, and they couldn't believe it, without seeing my documentation, it hurt my feelings. If you < i.e. whoever is reading
this) had some stuff happen to you, that was like, right out of The X-Files, but without any documentation or any other corroberation, would you still
be telling people it? Would you tell it on the internet? Here on ATS? Sometimes, I say, "I need to mind my own business", but then I say, "but
this is a public international chat forum". I sort of do, and sort of don't, know exactly just what it is I'm precisely trying to glean here, but
everyone's input to this will be very interesting, if you want. Thanks.
