Now, it's like every single thread you click on that isn't a 'mainstream approved' subject is inundated with official know- it-alls debunking and insinuating anyone who does not agree with their opinion is obviously inferior in their judgement and intellect.

Too much of a circle jerk now, opposed to an actual open minded venue where ideas can be expressed without ridicule. Like most of us don't get that enough in society as it is.

Couldn't agree more.

It's like everyone's a rock and a Mars specialist in threads. While they are probably guessing right the truth is, no one really knows deep down what they are talking about. No one's been to Mars yet, it's probably rocks but staying open minded deepens the discussions in threads and contributes eventually to denying ignorance.

My example isn't limited to Mars rocks looking like rats and lizards, I'm talking generally but going with the overall subject of this thread.

If NASA really found something other than a rock, why would they release it publicly?

There's a difference between calling out complete and utter stupidity, and being a rock brain.

Why wouldn't they? Hypothetically, if they did find something which they didn't want to get out (like a rodent on Mars lol), wouldn't it be better for them to have the internet debunkers say, "Just a rock, now let's move on." There you have it. Debunked. Now at a later time it is proven that there may have been live on Mars, NASA could say, "Well we didn't hide anything. We allowed all our findings out to the public." See double edged sword.

Calling a rock a rock is logical. Calling a rock anything else is illogical and bordering on delusional. When you can't accept that the rock is nothing more than a rock then you've thrown all logic out of the window and fully embraced the delusion.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Having a bad case of pareidolia has nothing to do with something being socially acceptable. Show me a moving creature on mars and I'll say, "Wow! You're right!" Show me another triangular rock that you've mistaken for a lizard, however, and I'll call you out on your BS.

Skepticism is healthy, it means you're not a gullible idiot.
