Bad people are everywhere.  When you walk down the street, you are sharing the sidewalk with murderers, rapists, child abusers, wife beaters, thieves and liars.  Do you meet someone and automatically assume they are one of those things?  The people in the government are just regular people.  They weren't raised to be snakes from birth. They just chose a certain career path.

Just making note of your hilarious and unbelievably hypocritical double-standards. My you must have been great at dodgeball back in the day.

In addition: No, I don't put a broad stroke on U.S. government involvement in everything. I treat it all case by case, just as I would with any Bigfoot/UFO case that emerges on this sight, and like any good skeptic should.

So how about a straight answer?

Skeptic?

It seems your skepticism is very selective.  You won't believe an ordinary citizen reporting a UFO or Bigfoot, but you happily accept the word of government agents making outlandish claims about airplanes that are invisible to others at the site.

Sweet!

The ignorance in this post is staggering.

Read it again and try to understand what he is saying, instead of twisting others words in order to make yourself sound smart.

I understand perfectly well what he was saying RB, and so do you.

He was describing himself as a "good skeptic".

I merely pointed out that a person describing himself as a "good skeptic" when that person believes the outlandish story from Shanksville and other places, "skeptic" is certainly NOT the correct way to describe his analytical qualities.  :no:

Because he analyzed the evidence and facts of that day and came up with a conclusion based on that.

Whereas you, take a belief that Nukes brought down WTC without any shred of evidence to support it.

I'd love to say that your ignorance is surprising, but then I'd be lying.

A fool's statement. Clearly, you do not understand the meaning of the word skeptic.

What is it in you that makes you need to insult? On this end, having read what I have, I attribute it to a long duration of excessive drinking of alcohol. That is the only real reason why people try to demean others, the behavioral characteristics of an alcoholic. OR... that you are paid to demean me in any way possible so that what I say seems less credible, ... but really isn't. I mean, we all now know that the ridicule factor doesn't work anymore and is really about trying to control percpetions more than ANYTHING else.

Give me a straight answer on why you insult? Is it a strong need in you or part of your job description?

I think it is just the ego, and the functioning of a chemically dulled frontal cortex and a very active amydala. They aren't skeptics. They are egoists trying hard to seem smart, when they might be smart if they let their systems clear of the chemical that dulls their higher thinking. OR they are paid, but not educated well enough to counter those who are educated.

NO, but I did have some really hard drinking years, nine of them. I left the man that enticed it, divorced him, and never looked back.

It really truly seems like you just described yourself to a T in that post.  It is clear you are trying very hard to make yourself sound smart.  I mean, how many times do you have to refer to yourself as educated?  Do you want us to believe it, or do you want yourself to believe it?  Oh, and just a reminder, it is against the forum rules to accuse someone of being paid to post.

Take that back! i can't remember the last time my amydalya was active. In fact, I don't know if I've ever had one.

No, don't believe you. Your nasty, snippy, condescending, and inappropriate comments are nothing more than the alcohol speaking.
