The point I share with NRE, is as follows;
You only really know what you have experienced 1st hand. (even then you can be inaccurate in your interpretation of what you have experienced).
This is largely a conspiracy site.
We cannot discuss conspiracies on this sight to any great length, when the '1st to deny ignorance' crowd enter a thread.
for eg.. Someone posts a thread with multiple claims, each with multiple aspects.
Another joins the thread and links a wiki quote that contradicts one of the aspects of one of those claims, then proceeds to ask a moderator to move
the thread to the Hoax bin and tells everyone else to 'move along nothing to see' with the pride that they were the first to 'deny ignorance'.
Knowing that most conspiracies, by their nature, are not heavily grounded in fact, this makes said person look more ignorant than the poster of the
thread to which he has claimed to debunk.
Therefore, it leaves alot of people who were interested in the topic raised bereft of any meat to chew on.
I recommend people check out NRE's thread on Dr. Peter D. Beter to observe how productive a topic raised, can be. Healthy investigation with mutual
Together we can achieve great things on ATS, divided, we accomplish the fact that it is easier to dismiss in an instant, rather than invest time in
hammering out all possible, plausible aspects of a given topic.
