Too many times I have seen on ATS where people yell at me to WAKE UP! Whenever I try to get to the bottom of this philosophy people end up yelling at
me, "stop asking soooo many useless questions!"
It's an alarming contradiction that I run in to too many times on this website. What does it mean to wake up?
Does it mean that I have to believe in conspiracies? Does it mean that I have to vote for Ron Paul? Does it mean that I need to post 24/7 onto the UFO
section even if my images are close up shots of raindrops and I know it! Does it mean that I have to believe in the 9/11 conspiracy?
Well, the problem with waking up is that I DON'T believe in or do any of these things!
I don't believe in many of the conspiracies here as most of them are out of context connections that have nothing to do with the original topic.
I don't like Ron Paul (obviously)
I believe that 95% of UFO sightings are fakes or frauds and the rest are top secret military projects
I don't believe 9/11 was an inside job, but I do have some questions about the day.
Is the term, "wake up" just a subliminal term concocted by the conspiracy community to try and coerce people into thinking like them?
Usually when I see a post on one of my threads with someone telling me to wake up I just ignore it. I see that this person really has no substance and
cannot argue about the topic that I posted about. Or that he is extremely upset that I am a genuine right-winger. If someone has a complete out of
this world philosophy (like that he is a shiny unicorn from another dimension) I ignore it.
Do these sad people consider themselves "open-minded" or whatever the heck, "wake up" means?
I came to this site as a conspiracy theorist and I still read all the interesting conspiracy material. However, now I am aware that a lot of it is
conjuncture or half-truths. I have read some that are completely made up lies. (this happens a lot in politics) I am a skeptic of conspiracies. But
does this mean that I am "asleep?"
If the purpose of this site is to deny ignorance then why shun the skeptics? Why cast them out or personally insult them when they dare question your
If waking up means to believe in half the things on this website then consider me asleep. But again, not really sure what that means....
