Well I've been skimming through some NASA sites for hours now and I came across this Q&A from NASA and thought it was funny to see NASA mention ATS

Source


godlikeproductions and abovetopsecret, both of which predict either a very close pass by Earth or a collision. If instead you consult dependable websites like wikipedia and skyandtelescope you will find that Comet Elenin will come nowhere near the Earth


I can just imagine NASA scientists on here reading the threads shaking their heads thinking "reptile people? aliens? these people are nuts!" and they might just be right...

But wikipedia is reliable? Sorry.. it's good. but not great. Too many things are spun there or have "reference needed" tags.

Not very comforting that NASA scientists list wikipedia as a reliable source.

It has gotten better, but come on, wikipedia?!

Yeah I've read stuff on here that made me want to throw my computer out the window because it's so outrageously insane. I'm with you on the thought of a NASA employee reading up on some of the threads on here: All of the doom and gloom, ever-changing apocalypse dates, reptilian threads, etc. Sometimes it's just too much and I have to take the occasional break from this website.

Yeah and human alien is a prime example of the "nuts" people on here:

Blank google sky answer


7. Can you explain the fact that the area at (5h 53m 27s, -6 10’ 58”) has been blackened out in Google Sky and Microsoft Telescope? People suggest that these have been blackened out because those are the co-ordinates where Nibiru is located at present.

Several people have asked me about this blank rectangle in Orion in Google Sky, which is a presentation of images from the Sloan Digital Survey. This can’t be a “hiding place” for Nibiru, since it is a part of the sky that could be seen from almost everywhere on the Earth in the winter of 2007-08 when much of the talk about Nibiru began. That would contradict the claims that Nibiru was hiding behind the Sun or that it could be seen only from the southern hemisphere. But I too was curious about this blank rectangle, so I asked a friend who is a senior scientist at Google. He replied that he “found out that the missing data is due to a processing error in the image stitching program we use to display the Sloan survey images. The team assures me that in the next run through, this will be fixed!”

I think that the point the NASA dude was making is that compared to ATS... WikiPedia is a whole lot more dependable...

At least they ADMIT when they need more references for their information

I wonder if some of the questions he gets asked are from members on here...

According to Above Top Secret and GLP? That would be incorrect. It
would be "some people" maybe. This is a forum. To say that the info
here is incorrect is ridiculous. It's a forum where people post their
opinions. Who's opinion are they talking about? Again, this is a forum.
We're all required to do are own research. Sounds like this NASA
scientist needs to do his own research. Or just use some plain
common sense.
Whatever. NASA = Never A Straight Answer.

Actually that is a true statement of fact. Problem is though it assumes everyone here believes the same and we don't. Not my fault if the Doom and Gloom, End of the World crowd insists on distortions of facts to take care of their Jones. I think it's like a runners high and some get off on distorting facts to scare themselves. They are not looking for real facts or proof; they just enjoy the ride.

Those who think Elenin is going to hit us just because they say so, post threads the more sensible members won't even bother posting too. In fact I've noticed a lot of the old members don't post any longer. I'm quickly loosing interest in the UFO - Alien Forum these days because it's been taken over by the silly crowd lately.

It is a negative for us also that they compared us to GLP where they have no standards and embrace obvious fiction like it is real. Although I admit it can be entertaining at times.

Im going through the Q&A's one and by one and I get the impression that David Morrison, the scientist that seems to answer most of the questions isn't keen on conspiracy theorists:

This is what is happening on Internet conspiracy sites with respect to the "strange animal deaths"



the Internet crazies are making up all sorts of implausible or impossible stories about animal deaths


"Internet crazies" made me laugh

Yeah, just because we speculate and throw out some ideas about possible causes for freak events, we are considered internet crazies. To be considered normal internet users, we would have to watch porn and play facebook games all day instead of using our noggins to actually do something somewhat productive.

Wow, what a great argument. "Oh well Wikipedia"... This guy is quoting Wikipedia for facts about Niburu when he works for Nasa. He would be able to quote him self if he wasn't most likely an idiot. Clearly any such info would be corrupted if the story was true.

It's like Bob says "I think Tim is up to something" to Jill, and then Jill says "Oh, well Tim told me that he was not up to any thing"...

YOUR ALL BEING FED A LIE !!!!

This link is DIRECTLY from NASA's JPL
DID EVERYONE FORGET THIS MAPPING OF ELENIN'S PROJECTION?



Clearly if you scroll "time" forward to the month of OCTOBER 2011, we (PLANET EARTH) will travel very close on the 17th of October. 0.32 AU at its CLOSEST.

One thing I encourage you to do is watch the orbit player in fast forward as it travels through. It speeds up DRAMATICALLY as it nears Mercury's orbit, but the speed at which it travels the rest of the time is no comparison. Yes the Sun will have affect on the "slingshot" comet Elenin will take as it rounds back into the squanders of the solar system, but looking at Mercury's pace in comparison to Elenin's is not the same. In FACT, I think if Elenin slowed down at anytime, we'd pretty much have a DIRECT hit to Earth.

Whoever answered those questions is probably earning minimum wage, as do the people who write "FACTS" on wikipedia. BS BS BS BS BS BS BS BS BS BS

It's not a reliable source really when you think about it. Infact very rarely is ATS the source for anything barring wild speculation and personal opinion. Basically nearly everything presented here has it's own source and is brought in to ATS via another website, members of ATS just report on the information presented. And to the casual observer it is easy to see why it can be dismissed as a credible place to get your facts from. Truth be told in many of the cases members do bring reliable, factual information to the discussions happening but it gets mainly ignored and threads go on.

WOW. Wikipedia is a reliable source? Ha! Anyone can edit wikipedia. My school won't allow anything from Wikipedia to be used as a reference but I was allowed to use ATS all I wanted


I very rarely use wikipedia. I dont like the information on many of the topics I read about. If I use it it's to get source information to research myself.
