I think using terminology like debunker and skeptic is a little hard edged considering this sites membership would be more productive and effecient as
a coalescant if such terms were trashed.
First, one ought not be called a debunker or a skeptic, just because they believe that unless solid scientificaly confirmable evidence can be aquired
and observed , that there is no such thing as aliens. Its a totaly reasonable position (and Im a believer btw). Similarly , it is not right for every
person who has allegedly seen a UFO or had a close encounter to be ridiculed and made a mockery of.
There are utterly idiotic members of both factions. Theres the frankly sickening and insane Aliens as Religion types, who frankly need to be acid
bathed , and there are the xenofascists, who believe that aliens cannot exist by the law of God, and if they do they are satan... This group, perhaps
more than the first deserve every chemical violence in mans imagination done to them in my opinion, since they are by evidence of thier own mouths
deliberately ignorant of what may well prove in the future to be the truth, and are already as good as set on attepting genocide on whatever may or
may not come from the stars.
In interacting with other members on this site, I realise that the classifications we place upon one another are meaningless. All that has meaning,
is wether a person thinks in a logical and scientific manner or not ( I am not suggesting that a person without qualification in science has nothing
to add to the debate, or rather the disscusion... merely that in order to contribute one must think clearly , rather than allowing ones judgement to
be impeded by anything other than reason).
Consider this, suppose the point were proved either way... If someone was right in thier attitude and thier conclusion about ufos and aliens, then
fine... but if someone arrived at the correct answer without any understanding , he or she would still be an ignorant pig headed cuss. They would just
be a lucky ignorant pig headed cuss.
Honestly , I think if the real thinkers on both sides were to ignore thier classifications for a while, more positive and progressive discussions
would get had. As it is classifying someone as a debunker or a rampant believer just installs an unhelpful target for over passionate vitriol, which
wastes space on boards, and is NEVER truely relavent to the case being discussed.
I say debunk classification, and do your own thing with logic and reason as your tools, no matter which side of the debate you happen to sit on.
Peace and Progress
