OK, I am participating in many BP oil threads. There is a ton of research and digging and science and rational thought that goes into those threads.
There is outstanding evidence and conjecture on all sides of the discussions.
Related to the BP leak we now have Weather threads, Gulf Current and Atlantic Current research. We have Global warming ties. We have the Sex, Drugs,
and BP thread related to Wild Mustangs. We have Earthquake threads. We have pre-historic extinction threads. We have abiotic oil research. Of
course we have aliens, and warnings, and precursors, and saviors, and reasons they let it happen.
You know we have religious threads, and armageddon threads.
We have North Korea threads, and Venezuela threads, and Cuba threads.
We have songs from the 70's that foretold of the Oil SPill.
We have Mayans, and Hopis, and Cayce and everybody's sister-in-law that had a dream foretelling of the leak.
We have engineers and chemists and geologists and fishermen and photojournalists all "evaluating" the evidence and being stifled in their
We have Obama and Evil Corporate America and haliburton and Blackwater and FEMA and DHS and the UN and NAFTA and the military all taking blame for
some part of this.
Here is my question? How did ATS survive prior to the oil spill? I have been here a couple of years, and I think we had all of
that stuff before anybody ever heard of the Deep Horizon. How did we do it? How did we satisfy our hunger for Conspiracy in the absense of all these
I am reminded of the movie "A Beautiful Mind." In the movie, he "cures" himself in the end by using his logic to determine that although the
world around him had changed, and he had changed and aged but the voices and visions had stayed the same? The little girl in his mind was still a
little girl after all those years. He realized it wasn't real.
If we use the same logic, and we look at the idea of Conspiracy theory Before Deep Horizon (BDH) and After Deep Horizon (ADH), and we realize that the
conspiracies all stayed the same, while the world changed around them..........maybe we can cure our CS Schizo tendencies!
No offense to my fellow schizos!
