I'd say for many members on here 2012 has definitely become a game. Take for instance the recent Nibiru thread. In it someone says something along the
lines that Nibiru is coming and when it gets here those who didn't believe in it will have egg on their face. They don't focus on the horrific
outcomes of something like that occurring. Instead they focus on the other side being wrong.
In the past I have likened ATS to an MMORPG, at least in its present state, and I think it is an at comparison. It doesn't seem like people actually
believe what they claim anymore. Instead what they care about is using the site as a form of escapism where they get to play a role different than the
one they play in real life. Unfortunately it will be the ones that actually believe these claims that will suffer and the fearmongers will feel no
I agree with everything you say here except the fear mongering thing. I don't see why a site with sections for UFO's Ghost and about everything should
not speculate on pretty much any subject without worrying that some person will be scared to death if they choose to read it.
I don't even see how the words " Fear Mongering" make any sense at all unless you are an authoritative person and perpetuate a fearful lie for some
purpose. ATS is just people discussing and talking. If you have to continually worry about how your thoughts may scare another reading it, you are
being censored to the point of no discussion.
S & F great thread well thought out. I was wondering as I have not followed the 21012 thing except to see a few threads and TV specials. Where do the
get the Cosmic Rift idea out of all you have stated?
Wondering why I am on this old thread. I left the computer and when I came back it was open to this, no one else home so I thought maybe I should read
and comment:-) Must have hit your name in the other one I was reading.
