Ok, eriktheaweful. I just get the feeling that someone is being less than honest.
It really does not matter whether or not someone is a combat veteran. It has no bearing whether or not someone can determine if a light in the sky is
Actually, no. This is important.
A military combat veteran will have more experience in judging the distance of an object on the average than say an accountant who stares at a
computer screen all day. Especially if they are having to shoot a hand held weapon.
This doesn't always mean that every combat veteran is a great observer and can judge distances with pin point precision. But the chances are much
greater than again, someone who's experiences have nothing to do with judging the distance of something.
A person's background is important when it comes to seeing things in the sky. An amateur or professional astronomer would know if something was out
of place, or the motion of a light up in the sky doesn't seem to fit anything. Where as someone that spends all their evenings playing WoW on the
computer might see the ISS traverse the sky one night and totally freak out.
I can understand "feeling that someone is not being honest" on here.
However, keep a few things in mind:
1) This is a text based form of communication. You have no body cues or voice tones to see or hear. The only way you can really tell if someone is
being dishonest on a forum is if they post something that completely contradicts what they said earlier, inconsistant postings in their story, etc.
And even then it's sometimes hard to understand if the person was being intentionally dishonest or simply confused.
2) You spend a LOT of time here in the 2012 forums, debunking Nibiru-Earth Ending-Zombie Horde-NWO Depopulation threads. And I think it gets to you
after a while, as sometimes you come off like a Pit Bull in attack mode. Just as we sometimes accuse people of seeing things that are not really
there, I think sometimes you do the same thing, but only because the amount of threads that you're active in.
Maybe take a break and watch a funny movie? Once in a while that is, or do some debating in other forums on here. Just a opinion, and like belly
buttons, everyone has one.
3) There is no 3. But I did say a "Few" up there, and feel too lazy to go up and edit it.
Anyways, I think all these 2012 threads are getting on everyone's nerves. Even the ones supporting it! I'm sure they get tired of us debunking or
feel attacked too. However, it's just going to get worse until December rolls around.
