The trick here is that I believe in things that I can have physical evidence about. I also believe in abstract thoughts sometimes, which is why I
believe there is alien life somewhere. There is nothing much you can do to convince scientific community but to get some physical evidence to back up
your claims. Another option would be that aliens themselves show up at some point in time. Otherwise, not many are going to believe much of claims
What bothers me most is that people make claims of their society, culture, behaviour, charasteristics, intelligence and so on, while the ONLY thing
you can know for certain is propably that they have atmospheric ships that look like a saucer.
You don't even know whether those are meant for planetary travel only, while their mothership is for space travel. You just don't know, your
observation is from saucers that fly in atmosphere. That's all the info you have, and that's it. THe rest is speculation.
I know for certain that there is at least one story that is fabricated, as I know who wrote it. Of course, this time too, it was meant to look like
they are warning us about something and as you might guess it included 2012 timeframe. Some believed it, which isn't that amazing as it was well
Now, I do believe in alien life and I think they propably have visited us. Other than that, it is pure speculation without evidence except eyewittness
I have no reason to believe in eyewittness accounts about conversations with these beings, nor do I believe goverments have pacts with them. I believe
that goverment knows just as little as we do, that they have saucer shaped ships which may or may not be capable of space travel.
Yet, I do enjoy speculating about these things every once in a while. If however I ever start to actually believe that I know something about their
culture, charasteristics or anything like that, I stop reading all this stuff as I have then PROOF that I have fallen into a belief that I have no
I don't think I'm perfect either, I do make mistakes in regard to my beliefs and sometimes believe things I have no proof about it. That is what it
is to be a human, so I don't really care at all if somebody browses my 500 posts of skepticism and finds something. Its obviously there, we are all
humans. I change my belief whenever I get proof about something. I have very very little thoughts that I would not change if proof is ever presented.
One of those beliefs is that humans are capable to run a world without war. That is one belief I will blindly keep even if it is presented to me that
it cannot be so. Yet, I am a skeptic.
To classify somebody under a single term, skeptic, is stuff that young people do. It is stupid to think that there will ever be any human being who
can continuously keep some belief system in all possible situations encountered during his/her life. It just cannot be, humans are not perfect.
That's a good thing, this world would be quite boring if humans were perfect already and systems of thoughts would never change and would always be
the same in regards of mechanics. This is something you learn when you grow older and start to accept difference, without boasting it to be something
that you should criticize everybody about.
