There is an old saying that goes something like "be open minded, but not so open minded your brains fall out". I think that covers what is meant.
Blindly accepting all the nonsense, hoaxes and irrationality that has been surrounding this topic of late is being so open minded "your brains fall
The believers who are sensible, rational and searching for real evidence and are savvy enough to discount the flood of pure garbage being spewed
lately are the ones who matter in the long run.
People who irrationally and blindly accept any crap that comes along are ruining this topic for the serious people. They also keep the Confidence
People in the middle of it all by being naive enough to subscribe to their nonsense and buying their material or arguing in favor of the obvious
hoaxes and scams.
Then we have those who fabricate for attention due to some self-esteem disorder. Often they seem to be so immersed in their fantasy world they
resemble the fanatics at a Star Trek Convention or members of a cult. Eventually they come to believe their delusions themselves which makes it all
even more troubling.
If your not a Skeptic as well as a Believer, all you are is a target and a spreader of false information and fantasies.
Deny Ignorance has a meaning that does not include being so open minded "your brains fall out".
Even though I'm likely one of the strongest Believers here, you would likely view me as a Skeptic or even worse a Disinfo-Agent (whatever that is).
I've been following this since the 1960's when I saw a classic saucer shaped craft, directly above my head and up close and personal. Even so I have
no idea if it was Alien or an Earthly Experimental Craft and I'm not so foolish as to assume I know what it was. That would be dishonest to me and to
everyone else and it would prove I'm not capable of even basic critical thinking skills.
I'm honest with myself. I learned right away that most report's are in fact misidentification, military or fabrication and that very few report's
are real, or worth the time to look into. That is just the way it is in the REAL World.
In other words the kid's are underfoot and driving the adult's nuts, interfering while the adults are trying to have adult conversations. The idea
is supposed to be to legitimize these topics by denying ignorance and having adult conversations and doing real research. Instead we are seeing a
carnival of madness of late.
"Na-Nu Na-Nu" and I'm off to the Mother-Ship.
