The intentional act of creating a scapegoat "bad guy" in the term "debunker" just allows people to continue holding their eyes closed and
believing whatever they want to believe, regardless of the reality.
Now, whenever someone presents an alternative theory to what a UFO could be that doesn't involve aliens or paranormal weirdness, they're simply
labeled as a debunker and thereafter have no voice, because they're the bad guy and a troll. Think I'm wrong? It's already happening here.
"Skeptics are OK, but Debunkers are just jerks who push their theories onto everyone (forgetting as well that everyone does that when they
give an opinion, even alien opinions)." So it's alright to be skeptical, just so long as you're silent about it and don't get involved in the
big-boy discussions about what a particular piece of evidence might be, otherwise you run the risk of being re-labeled from Skeptic to the awful,
Does nobody else feel the least bit unsettled that everything scientific and realistic about the ETH community is being violently pushed out, to allow
for free-roaming fantasy? They've created a scapegoat in debunking and made it a bad word to do just that. I know that most people here would
likely say "No, it's not all debunkers, just the X, Y, or Z type." Problem is, it's very easy to get those X, Y, and Z types added to the
evil list as well once you make debunking a four-letter word. Maybe you'll be added to that list as well one day, when your particular flavor of
alien life isn't considered the mainstream within the ETH community.
This should be about science, not popularity and fame.
