Hi Blue Shift,
I can tell you're rather new here, at least in hours spent researching if not in years spent debunking.
This is a Conspiracy forum and apparently you don't believe in such things. This is manifest in the threads you have started and it appears your role
at ATS has been regularly an antagonist one. The debate about evidence is one used to reject anything which isn't already validated by mainstream
There are thousands of instances in which evidence which would be admissible in courts of law have been provided by the most reliable eyewitnesses.
Just because you were not there yourself and failed to experience what might exist does not mean it doesn't. Only you choose to disbelieve because of
prevailing convictions you already hold, which prevent you from considering the evidence present. That is your choice, but please cease invectives to
others to disbelieve what evidence they judge reliable.
I've seen an ALIEN in person and can tell you that being a direct eyewitness is far more evidence than most people need. Evidence is what is
convincing enough to believe, in the absence of sufficient contradicting evidence to bring you to disbelieve. I am willing to wager that you have ZERO
evidence that there is no life outside this planet in our puny Solar system. If you do have evidence to the contrary, please expound.
On a separate note, I find the use of the image of President Abraham Lincoln quite out of place when associated with a closed mind and absence of
vision. Lincoln was an inspired Gentleman who was curious about the nature of the world we live in. He was assassinated for his convictions and fell
victim to a Conspiracy. This makes his colorized photograph an odd choice for conspiracy theory debunking.
