I'm here to debunk conspiracies and...

#1  Postby moderateGOP » Oct 19, 2013 5:31 am

To discuss how crazy Conspiracy Theorists sound. I also find myself not fitting in with the way that some people think. I think I am too rational in my thoughts for some people to understand. I have studied both US politics and Conspiracy Theories in General. Yeah, I used to believe in them. Now, I just find it sickening. I came to my awakening about three years ago after I joined a CT (as I like to call Conspiracy Theorists) forum, then I realized how crazy I sounded. I hope to have a better experience here. I will also occasionally share news relating to CT antics.

Welcome to RatSkep.

I was really hoping that after your topic title of "I'm here to debunk conspiracies and ..."

You would make your opening post something like:

"Chew bubble gum - and I'm all out of gum."

Welcome.

Awesome!! Please debunk the most common ones!! My dad is paranoid and has reached the "ufo youtube videos" phase and believes a missile hit the pentagon and 911 is an inside job. He's becoming irrational.

Well, you would say that, wouldn't you? Those actually involved in The Conspiracy are always the first to want to suppress the truth about The Conspiracy.

It is clear to me by now that you are one of Them. Their chosen tactic is always to mark out anyone who knows of Their existence and Their intent, and to brand these enlightened few as crazy. Henceforth, any denial from you that you are one of Them will be taken as strong evidence that you are in fact one of Them, and nothing you say can be trusted. Any attempt to debunk The Conspiracy will prove once and for all that The Conspiracy is real and far more widespread that any of us could have previously imagined.

I'm onto you, "moderateGOP".

Hi and welcome!
We are alive, so the universe must be said to be alive. We are its consciousness as well as our own. We rise out of the cosmos and see its mesh of patterns, and it strikes us as beautiful. And that feeling is the most important thing in all the universe.
