I mean, i see a lot of really silly stuff on here... and the majority of it DOES NOT come fromt he skeptics. most of these people that the OP has such harsh feelings for are just as responsible as some of the greatest minds in this field as far as moving it forward. without someone demanding more evidence we would never feel motivated to get more. because for some a blurry photo of a paper plate hung on a peice of fishing line is enough evidence for them.
I for one applaud the skeptics and the believers alike. because without either of them, we would never get anywhere.

this kind of thing is pathetic, and this kind of thing is not what ATS is about. And if it is, then this is not the site for me.
This site calls for a certain level of openmindedness, a mind that can say 'ok, I don't agree with this, here's why, but I'm open to debate...." not "THIS IS ALL WRONG, I'M RIGHT AND THIS IS STUPID, YOUR IGNORANT FOR THINKING THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE!"
Drama should be saved for the highschool halls, not on ATS. Its silly and annoying seeing people argue over the internet, on a site that has so much potential for conversation and debate...the tone of ATS posters need's to change. The sarcastic, insulting, and immediatly defensive comments need to stop, if ATS ever wants to be a better enviroment.
