Breaking the quiet in spectacular fashion, a magnetic filament erupted from the sun's northern hemisphere on Sept. 29th. Our planet's magnetosphere might receive a glancing blow on Oct. 2-3. Polar geomagnetic storms and auroras are possible when the CME arrives.
BO XIANFolks, imho, are ragingly rabid on ATS to label things "hoax" as though their uhhhh . . . get(s) bigger with
every "hoax" success notched on their Speedo's or bra straps. Sheesh. Get a life.

It is as though gargoyles are lurking over every post ready to pounce screeching loudly to low hell and high heaven

ME DADDY. I CAN SCREECH "!HOAX!" FASTER, FIRSTESTER, BETTER THAN EVERYONE. AIN'T I KEWEL!"
Sheesh what a sad mentality. What a wet blanket on discussing our extremely complex world and our extremely complex era.

I agree completely with what you wrote. Most people are going into hurr durr overdrive mode. I respect the few who have differing opinions but keep it civilized and do not have ego flare-ups.
Basically, such reactions are fear driven. They must feel approval and acceptance for their opinions in order to feel secure. You can only feel sorry for these folks, as they have yet to realize that their little worlds won't crumble if there is someone with a completely different worldview.
Most people feel threatened just by someone's different opinion?! Yes, that's how it is...
