I was just joking. A "serious" YouTube channel that takes people like Donny and debunks them would more than likely fail.
Here is why: People.
People don't want to hear rational explanations. They don't want to hear a bunch of science explaining something. People, don't want to hear that
everything is fine.
What people WANT to hear is: Aliens are coming, Aliens are among us, The world is going to have LOTS of disasters (which it already does, and has and
will)....so they want: The world is going to have even MORE disasters, That jet planes are making chemtrails, that there are giant doughnut shaped
UFO's out in space (never mind that it's a out of focus effect of the telescope camera's primary and secondary mirror making a close object look
that way while the telescope is focused on a far object), That there is a super sized rogue planet steered by aliens and are able to defy all laws of
physics and gravity.....
They WANT to hear the world is going to end.
People don't want to know how things work, or why science works the way it does. That requires a lot of thinking, and that's work.
They'd rather someone else do their thinking for them.
For example, if you could jump back in time just 150 years ago, and grab someone, take them out to the night sky and point to a star or a
constellation, they'd be able to tell you what your are pointing at. Even simple farms paid attention to the stars positions.
Now go outside and grab your neighbor. Chances are they won't know what they are looking at, because they spend all of their time texting on their
smart phones to their BFF's about the game on TV......
Well scratch that.....actually if they have a iPhone, there is a app that let's you hold the phone up to the sky and it will show you what you are
looking at......I'll give 'em that.
But in general, People don't want to hear the boring old truth. They want something that has thrill, fear, unknown, the strange.
Think about it. Our society is made that way. We watch horror films. We ride roller coasters. We gamble. We eat up crime novels (especially if it's a
People like to rant too......like I just did.....
Sorry. ATS might be about Deny Ignorance.....but I think for me, really, Ignorance just pisses me off!
