Yup!! It is, indeed, better known by it's common name, water, yet it is still a chemical, probably the most abundant chemical on the face of the
earth! It is used practically everywhere so we are literally saturated with it.
People need to realize that the word "chemical" does not always equal "bad". Each and every thing, down to the smallest substance, can be
expressed as a chemical.
Chemtrails, they're made mostly of water. The human body, it's made mostly of water, the ocean, lakes, rivers, streams......well, they ARE water.
Chemicals are not only part of our world, it's what we are. The sensationalism about chemicals and how they're destroying everything is abhorent.
If this is to be considered for moving to the joke forum, then, by all means, move each and every one of the chemtrail threads to this forum as well.
Move each and every thread that mentions chemicals and goes on and on about them to this forum as well. More than half of what I see posted may not
have the intent of being what this thread is, but they definitely fit in the same category if not a category even lower. This was intentionally
pointing out the ignorance that permeates our society, hence, denying ignorance to its basic core. Others are overflowing with ignorance yet treated
as earth shattering revelations when they are nothing more than sensationalism based in ignorance itself.
If we are to Deny Ignorance, we first must know what Ignorance is and too many just don't have a clue. If we wish to deny it, we have to inform,
educate, discuss and unmask it. Those involved in education know that humor is sometimes the best way of doing this. It causes interaction, puts
things in perspective and creates an environment where learning something isn't looked at as being "oh, well you didn't already know that, so you
must be stupid" when, in reality, the very people claiming that are usually the most guilty of it.
No, I don't feel this is a hoax or a joke, I feel it is the very essence of what ATS should be. Providing a basic knowledge, a basic understanding
and helping people to realize that the sensationalism and blatant ignorance is damaging to us as a society. Focusing on learning the basic nature of
the world around us and understanding the chemical makeup of it would do much more to deny ignorance than any thread about the government conspiracies
using flouride to calcify the pineal gland so we can't text one another via ESP.
