Well ive been lingering here for a little while now and its really quite irritating to see how many people are just set in their ways and do not listen to others opinions. especially with regards to religious threads, we really have no way to know whether science or religion is right about our origins but the way i see it is, either way we wont find out until we die so stop arguing about it and just listen to one anothers points.

Also i cant help but think that people here that constantly ask for proof and/or evidence of everything just need to give it a rest. These are usually the same people that if they see a video or photo of something on here will claim it is a fake. so you cant win, especially with regards to ufo or paranormal sightings, is it not enough that sometimes people will see things that are unusual and they wont always have a camera with them.

Rant over, i just needed to get that out of my system. keep up the good work of exposing the truth about everything people

I understand your irritation, but by the same breath, your asking people to be opened minded, are you not? Isn't that asking to be more of your mind set?

I'm agnostic that teeters on atheism. I was also a Catholic growing up as a boy. I love hearing peoples beliefs while also debating without demonizing their personal beliefs. I figure as long as they aren't harming anyone, let them think what they want.

At least you had an open forum to rant, anyway. Right?

i know what you are saying my irritation is aimed at those that insist they are always right for whatever reason without ever really taking in the points of the other side. this would certainly be a slightly more boring place if everybody just agreed all of the time.

First off let me say how ignorant you sound, its blatantly obvious Science created us via aliens, to think any differently just means youve been brainwashed.. But its also obvious theres a heaven. I dont care what you say thats the truth and if you dont believe it then that just proves how small you are and that Im so much better than you.

And anyway wheres your proof of these alleged people who dont listen to others opinion? And for that matter proof of these people who didnt have cameras?
Dont bother replying coz Im not even gonna read it as it will just be you photoshopping or a fake link to a site made by you to look likea genuine ATS thread that has people bickering about petty stuff and I can assure you that doesnt go on here.

Your blatantly a dis info agent or a racist.

Welcome aboard

well i can tell you for a fact that this stuff does happen i was arguing with someone earlier about there inability to listen i tried to make a point and they would go off on a tangent and completly miss the point because they cant accept being wrong. and ive seen many posts where people say they have seen things and some of the very first replys are nearly always, got a photo or a video or some kind of proof. and where did i say anything racist?

Well if this stuff happens all the time post a link? You could have included one in that reply but you didnt

And anyway The fact that Im Australian and I play Afl should tell you something.
So insted of just telling why dont you show us what your talking about.
and you must think were all stupid, everyone could see the 4th word of your OP when rearranged and swapping a letter spells a horrible,disgusting racial slur and the anti semitic undertones to the whole concept, well quite frankly a mod should have shut it down!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's remember to be civil in our responses and as well remember that not everyone responds well to tongue in cheek sarcasm on contentious topics.

Thank you.

Well ive been lingering here for a little while now and its really quite irritating to see how many people are just set in their ways and do not listen to others opinions. especially with regards to religious threads,


You're expecting people with deeply held beliefs based on faith to be open-minded?
Likewise, you're expecting people who rely on facts and evidence to be open to arguments based on ancient texts and ideals?


we really have no way to know whether science or religion is right about our origins but the way i see it is, either way we wont find out until we die so stop arguing about it and just listen to one anothers points.


Not knowing the answer isn't a reason to silence the debate. There's no way to KNOW, but we can at least deduce likely answers based on evidence.


Also i cant help but think that people here that constantly ask for proof and/or evidence of everything just need to give it a rest.


You're saying we shouldn't demand some kind of backup for a claim?


These are usually the same people that if they see a video or photo of something on here will claim it is a fake. so you cant win, especially with regards to ufo or paranormal sightings, is it not enough that sometimes people will see things that are unusual


Lets face it, these fields are RIFE with fakes. Videos and photos aren't PROOF, but they are EVIDENCE, and should be evaluated along with the narrative of the sighting/incident, etc.


and they wont always have a camera with them.


Who doesn't have a camera with them these days? Most folks have one right on their phone. To be honest, I'm really surprised we haven't had more UFO/Alien pics than ever before. Why wouldn't an abductee whip out a cell and start snapping some pics?
