First, I want to point out if someone is on a open discussion board as this one, do they not know what " open discussion " means?
Second, I have no issues with anyone believing whatever they want, it is when they say their belief is fact, and have no evidence to support this. This is exactly what some do with their religions, they preach it as fact, and we all know how religion and politic discussions end up.
Also, if someone does say " this is what I believe", but follow it with " what do you think " , why do they get so damn upset when people start questioning it?
I have some awesome PM's, and replies to me of people acting like I just spat on their mothers grave for debating with them, when they got into the debate.
Statements are taken as if they can hear my tone of typing, when they can not. ( others also, not just me )
Then, some will " follow " people to other topics and generalize on things they said in another topic, but will not talk about it in the proper topic. It is like they are in a battle to get people to believe them, and not someone else. It is actually comical.
Some will put people on ignore, then keep jabbing at them in replies on topics, and even ask them questions when they have them on ignore.....Then, wonder why they do not get answers.
Above goes for all topics here.
Funny thing, I , and all skeptics I am sure, would love nothing more then to see what people post be real. I WANT to believe some of the things here, I really do.
So, anyone care to share why you get so p***ed off when you get into a discussion on a open forum, about anything paranormal?
And, if you do get so mad, why do you stay on a open discussion board, and not go to a " believers " forum only?
There has to be a reason, and I would love to know what it is.
Now, do not get me wrong, there are great discussions here, it is a minority of people ( both sides ) that get in this " defensive" mode, then go into " attack " mode....
I just want to know why is all.
I have been forming my opinions, I just want to hear others.
I also wish we could get more mature debates/discussions going with people not getting butt hurt over a forum topic.
