I am a skeptic. Well, I aim for it.
I used to be skeptical of UFOs and stuff, but once I actually saw a real Flying Saucer fly over my house something changed inside of me.
Being that I had witnessed proof that something odd was going on in real life around me, I must point out that my Skepticism did not dissolve.
I just refocused my skepticism into a new direction.
Now I direct my skepticism towards .Gov and all that junk.
Also I enjoy applying my skepticism towards our usual UFO pics here on ATS. Granted 99% of them are mis-identifications or photo artifacts of some
sort. Or outright hoaxes.
Just gotta apply some common sense. Just because I saw a real Flying Saucer did not erase my skepticism. It only evolved it into a more accurate
version of previous skeptical intent.
Skepticism is the ONLY way you will uncover crimes, by questioning the suspects and investigating. It is the only way you will find the truth, by
questioning everything and seeking real life legit answers for yourself.
Do not take my word for it, because evidence is very important to establish a fact. I know it is a fact that Flying Saucers exist and fly around our
cities quite often. But if you have not seen it yourself, you do not know.
You can believe or disbelieve, but this is folly. It is better to be curious and seek facts first.
The facts exist and are all around us. It is just up to us to be smart enough to see it. (And in my case LUCKY).
Sometimes things are not so clear cut, yet remain highly compelling, so just keep digging till you find something.
By asking QUESTIONS and pointing out facts, one can create a scale to determine the validity of the "Reports".
When things add up , keep digging for the gem.
When things do NOT add up, you know it's incorrect. (Or we are lacking relevant data that would explain such anomalies).
Somethings are obvious, others are not.
This is why skepticism is extremely important and should be applied when doing any type of research or investigation.
ATS would NOT exist without skepticism.
I am skeptical of both random ATS posts, AND the gov't official lies.
I am a "I have to see it to know its real" type person.
