We do not carry ourselves in a manner conducive to helping anyone come around to our line of thought. (that being that we are not told thhe truth--the
whole truth, and there are many things that should be questioned)
I remember when name calling and cursing were not allowd on ATS. When someone would get into trouble for substituting one different letter in a curse
word so that it would pass the filters. Remember when calling people names just because they they are still ignorant to the idea that we are
routinely lied to? I do. I remember when this site stood for truth and denying ignorance. I miss that. Why on earth would anyone listen to what we
are saying here when it is not uncommon to see things like:
"i can't belive you are so stupid.
"people who still think that way deserve to die"
and so on and so on. Imagine you are curious and starting to question MSM, so you look into seriously investigating the claims made on TV and look
some things up for yourself. You hear about this website forum that is sopposed to be a serious forum where these things can be discussed
intelligently. And you look at the headlines here and they read something similar to this:
"Religion must die!"
"Bush a reptillian? Here's proof!"
"It's time to revolt America"
"Never underestimate the stupidity of the masses"
those are just a few examples of real headlines and articles on here. Now look, can you imagine your uptight relative or friend who is a smart person
but otherwise naive to the amount of deception they receive daily, can you imagine that person seeing this kind of garbage and actually taking us
seriously? Can anyone tell me one way that this kind of conduct helps our cause? Now, who can tell me ways it HURTS our cause? Who can tell me a
few ways that we are HELPING the secrecy agenda with this behavior? If we don't take ourselves seriously, then those who have not yet been woke up
will not either. We look like a bunch of unstable potty mouths.
I swear a lot. I am extremely vulgar when i am around my friends. But i do not bring that here, because even though it should not, it does give the
impression that one is shallow and uncouth, and dare i say it STUPID. How serious would we take someone in power if when asked about a new bill he
simply said, "It sucks, anyone who would vote on this bill deserves whateer they get, i mean, it's so dumb."
That is what some of you sound like. We need to stop this trend. Part of denying ignorance is helping other people take the wool from over their
eyes. We seem to have given up on that. Now it seems that we just like to call them names "sheeple" and such more than we want to help them. We
are that snobby kid who thinks he is better than everyone else.
Also, not everyone reads conspiracy sites and alternative news, or even deep research into well known areas, such as the existance of water on the
moon. I use this as an example because it is recent and i saw a lot of the conduct i talked about there.
no, it was not a secret that water existed on the moon in small amounts.
no, NASA was not "hiding" it's existance.
no, it was not COMMON KNOWLEDGE, quit saying things like "it's been well known"
9 out of 10 people had no idea that the moon had any water. AT LEAST 9 out of 10. This is not a scientific poll, i just read the many articles that
poped up on the internet. ALMOST every article contained a headline like "Confirmed:there is water on the moon" or "Moon not as dry as we have
these headlines were on MAJOR sites, so if this was big news to these "learned" individuals, then that can accurately be compared to the general
public and our awareness of the presence of water on the moon. I Saw zero articles that said this:
"BIG WHOOP: India tells us what everyone already knew"
so please please stop acting like this is no big deal, you and I may have read some of those articles in the years past that hinted at water, but we
are a very small portion folks, NOT EVERYONE RESEARCHES THIS STUFF BELIEVE IT OR NOT
The presence of water on the moon (however small) radically changed the way 95% of people thought of our solar system overnight! Almost everyone
believed the moon to be completely bone dry, and India of all places, a poor country with an infant space program, changed this view. My question is
this: Why didn't NASA make this as big a deal as India when they discovered this years ago? It certainly is good news for India's space program,
the media attention they have gained, i bet they will not have any problems increasing their budget next year, so why did NASA treat this as a
non-issue? Why was it NEWS to 9 out of 10 folks? Wouldn't they want the attention and the increse in funds for such a discovery?
who knows? This thread isn't about solving this issue, it's simply meant to show just how snobby we have become here. I personally know 3 people
who discoved ATS BECAUSE of this discovery of water on the moon by India. These folks thought that NASA had not been forthcoming in this at all, and
they wanted to find out what else NASA might have "played with" (not hidden, or lied, but changed in a way that hides it in plain view) and it lead
them to ATS. Imagine their disappointment when they look into the main article to see most of you here telling other readers that you knew this for
years, it was old new, no big deal, quit being so excited. One of these friends outright told me that he believed some of you must work for NASA or
some other agency who wants to make this a non-issue.
Now i don't know about all of that, but it was very dissapointing to see our reaction here:
"move along folks nothing to see here, but look at this mars cricket, now there's something to be amazed at!"
POint is: BABY STEPS.
becoming awakened is a slow and delicate process that must be done in baby steps. All of the conduct and examples i have provided here would hinder
anyone trying to make those first steps.
I'll get off my soap box now, this has just been bothering me REALLY BAD lately.
