Hear me out fellow ats'ers. And that means you to CT'ers. Things have gotten out of hand. Countless threads have bombarded the main forum regarding
some kind of conspiracy about the shooting. From people claiming to have cracker secret codes, to a blip on a map that appeared for 3 seconds in a
2 1/2 hour movie.
I understand that this act of violence was seemingly unthinkable to most. And we desperately want to make sense out of the chaos. I'm not sure why
some of you insist there MUST be a conspiracy. But here;s a test for you to see if you really believe it, or if you may need to admit to yourself you
are grasping at straws. Would you tell one of the victim's family members this whole conspiracy ideas? Do you really feel you have some sort of
smoking gun? I have news for you. Each one of the conspiracy theories on this shooting differs a little. And why? Because none of you know. Some of
you claim to have a smoking gun, some think it requires further research. To those calling for more research, great. Do that. Please let us know your
findings. But there is no way on EARTH any of you have done all the proper research to actually make a conclusion. I guarantee you , each and every
one of you, that you do not know all the facts. That the police have kept details to themselves.
So until you have allllllll the evidence, give it a rest. I personally believe this is what it seems. I loner went nuts, had mental health issues,
and far to easy access to guns. He killed his mom and barged into a school and killed 26 people.
And I'm sorry to say this, but I do not need to be told by members who have been here for a few months that this ' is a conspiracy site and you need
to leave because you don't believe its a conspiracy' .
That phrase, or some form of it, has been abused so many times in the last few days. This site was here to vet conspiracies. We don't need 45
threads withe the same premise. Ive been on this site for almost five years. I know exactly what ATS is. It is considered a cop out in my opinion to
hide behind the ' its a conspiracy website, if you disagree get out'. This sentiment WAS HARDLY EVER used by ct'ers in the past. Because CT'ers
actually were able to debate their threads with skeptics. They knew the skeptics were here to vet and search for the truth just as much as the
CT'ers were. However that sentiment has changed . Now it is if you don't like my theory get out, because I don't have to defend it.
No, you do. That's what ATS is. If you have a theory, and you believe in it enough, then defend it. Prove it. If you cant do both, then you are just
putting out theories you haven't researched and are just posting hunches. Which is fine, but don't get mad when you are called out for doing so.
So to sum up what Ive seen...
Sandy Hook on a map- Coincidence. This theory implies that Christopher Nolan somehow had knowledge two years in advance of the Newtown shooting. You
really believe that?
A code cracked connecting The Dark Knight, the shootings, and Apple? Yet no evidence as to how this code was cracked, what it means, what it shows
for the future, just that there were names that connected everything. One member even put forward that Spongebob Squarepants in letter equaled
MK-Ultra. Lanza was somehow the victim of mind control by the CIA. While I believe in MK Ultra and fully believe it existed in the CIA. There is not
one shred of proof that Lanza had any contact with anyone even closely related to the CIA. Again, no proof. At least Ted Kaszinsky had some kind of
tie to the CIA tests. Here, nothing. Just throw out Lanza's name with MK Ultra in the same sentence and there you go, a thread on ATS.
Sandy Hook was a blood ritual with ley lines having something to do with it. In this thread the notion of the author of the Hunger Games is somehow
involved because she lives there.
And then there was the second gunman. So it is more likely that Lanza had a second gunman helping him (his brother?) OR there were reports that were
just wrong as events unfolded like every other time with the media. Just because the media screws up details as they evolve does not mean there is a
conspiracy. I would actually think there was credibility to a conspiracy if the media got everything exactly right.
Please CT'ers. Stop using the 'its a conspiracy board, get out of here if you don't believe'. There was a time where that line of thinking was
never tolerated on here. Instead of deflecting, start defending. When you make a thread, be able to defend your claims with evidence. If you cant,
don't make a thread. Wait until you have something viable.
Otherwise, this site will devolve to the obscurities of the internet. ATS is losing good members by the day. Most because they couldn't take the
constant crap thrown against the wall. Because that's what 25 something threads on this topic is. Throwing crap against the wall and hoping something
