I've had this suspicion for some time now, now of course this is a big generalisation...BUT... like most places the majority rules and the majority
here on ATS aren't here to seek truth, or to challenge their beliefs, no they're here to validate their beliefs.
It's become a sad, scary fact that the majority here who sprout about their open mindedness are in fact closed minded and will not accept anything
else besides their 'truth', and what better place to validate that?
Take this thread as an example, Inside info on comet Elenin (yes, you're being lied
, No substance, no facts and most likely lies and how many flags? 200+
Clearly this thread speaks to the majority I mention above so they flag the hell out of it because the OP validates their truths.
So the question begs...
Why won't people challenge their beliefs?
It's the very reason why I came to ATS, to challenge my beliefs, to see both sides of the story...you know being open minded?
So in closing, you're all a bunch of close minded sheep unwilling to leave your comfort zone.
And I'm over it.
