In a more general sense, I take issue with people presenting THEORIES as FACTS ( or worse, opinion as fact.)
While i enjoy sites like ATS and the "weird" in general, I also understand that you must approach ALL of it as a skeptic.
So, my "cliche", in the loosest sense of the word (and it's loose): The seemingly mentally ill and their ramblings.
Angels, Aliens, Ghosts, Demons, the illuminati (not the actual illuminati, mind you, but it's modern conspiracy tinged incarnation as seen on ATS and
in countless asinine, idiotic comments around the web.),et al.
GREAT for discussion... fun to talk about... but NO PROOF.
YOU CAN'T MAKE DEFINITIVE STATEMENTS ABOUT THESE THINGS.
i am SICK and TIRED of people making definitive statements about things that are, at best, theoretical.
I keep a folder of links to these sorts of items. I call it my "Proof of Insanity" folder.
The issue is, honestly, the crazies drowning out the legitimate discussions and research... Not only that, but alos the crazies being the "face" of
sites like ATS (or C2CAM, etc)
People who quote the BIBLE in reference to EVERYTHING.
The bible is an interesting historical document (the old testament only) but, really, has no place in the discussion.
It isn't PROOF of anything. It shouldn't be an answer to answer question, nor is it predicting anything else.
Religion is nonsense.
Just stop quoting it at me thinking it means something.
Most of you have no idea what it means anyway.
