You guys, who just registered in the last couple months, you're all a posse, aren't you.
I know you may not be referring to me, (specifically) sounds like you're referring to "the followers" as a whole, but I felt lumped into this
^ category regardless.
This isn't the introductory section on this forum, duh, but here's a rundown of what I would have said, had I decided to introduce myself.
I've been a lurker on ATS now for a couple of months. I was actually referred to the site by my father, who likes to read, but not interact. Under a
different user-name, I was a long time member of another forum, you might have heard of it, called "Unexplained Mysteries" where similar topics were
I've always had a hunger for the truth. So it was only a matter of time before I joined the conspiracy nutters here.
Though it may not seem like it, I do take into consideration what the skeptics say. I'm used to that, there are plenty of skeptics over at good old
UM too, who try to keep the whimsical thinkers in line.
I don't normally get involved with the skeptics and believers tug of war, but I felt like clarifying my position.
I'm on the fence when it comes to the OP. Just like I'm on the fence about a lot of theories. Still, I like to give people who spike my curiosity the
"benefit of the doubt", ask questions, while feeling around in the dark for myself. I don't think I should be underestimated for that. I may not seem
like it, I may seem like one of the "wounded" sheep, (and I kind of am) but that doesn't mean I'm completely incapable of discerning things for
myself. As I said before, no problem with the skeptics who post decent rebuttals to the topic. Those kind of skeptics are a necessity in fact. But
when they start to reach out with their pincers and subtly take a jab at those who entertain certain possibilities just because "they" don't like it,
that's when the skeptics become oh so annoying.
Likewise, some of the "supporters" are guilty of this too.
That is all.
