Simply put, if all you are looking for is people who believe the exact same thing as you, you are not interested in the truth. You are interested in
making friends. That's fine too. But don't come here and complain that the rest of us are using the scientific method.
Without people calling out the BS you'll go nowhere.
This is the trend I've noticed, if everyone doesn't immediately slap your back and tell you how "awake" you are, they are disinfo.
People complain about "free speech" when, in fact, they have no expectation of that here at all. Then those same people, whilst still using the
same breath, decide that if you disagree you shouldn't comment. That's just insane.
all you complainers are insane.
sure, some people are fed up with ridiculous claims, and sure, some of them are less than kind in pointing that out. Take it for what it's worth, if
you want a closed minded group of "believers" and nothing more, there are plenty of sites out there.
If you are here for truth, suck it the hell up.
What good is a site if all people do is post random stuff, with no evidence or science behind it, and everyone simply agrees and takes it as fact?
That's completely useless.
This lead me to a conclusion I posted in a rant way back, most of you aren't here for the truth at all. You are lonely people looking to make
contact with other people. The rest of us want answers, and answers require evidence and investigation, which goes beyond giving stars and flags, it
requires actual WORK, and SCIENCE.
Who decides what is a ridiculous claim? The so called crackpots are the ones that will probably eventually lead us to something worth learning.
No problem that people disagree but why do they have to say in the 2nd or 3rd post down..." move along people...nothing here to see here"?
If someone posts something they think is interesting and the people who read the post don't think so, why don't they just move along without telling
everyone else to do so...don't like the post don't reply unless there truly is something to debunk NOT just insult. All the little crud posts would
dry up if no one posts replies.
The atmosphere on ATS is changing from one of... we are willing to give you a look and a listen no mater what... to if you can't prove it don't post
People are personally ripped to threads, their thoughts, tastes, interests, intelligence. Why can't an uneducated tribal dweller in the jungle show
us what he saw/found or thought and let those interested look and the rest just not! Why do we have to make that person feel they are not worthy to
share a thought?
NP with debunking by pointing out possibilities, possible error and leading to good conversations and thought and eventually help everyone decide what
they believe themselves, but now it seems that the best contributors of the past only have jabs and negative comments with no conversation at all,
that is not debunking and it is not presenting constructive thought.
