Our government is inept as all fucking hell.

The NSA is too busy spying in on World of Warcraft and Second Life to actually be able to kill anyone that requires more than a blind drone strike. Dodgy

I wish I could put a could threads on ignore, but I don't know if that exists.

You can unsubscribe from a thread though.

oh I am definitely not subscribed to this one.
I just always click on the 'Today's posts' button rather than scrolling through the categories on the main page... and well, I just don't care about this one. Big Grin

I'm sorry this is too tough to understand. Unfortunately what the U.S. government wants you to believe is false. And we still have the evidence. That means that you are going to be faced with the reality at some point by a child with a computer. This is supposed to be the thinking atheist forum? Where is the progress?

What's so hard to understand?

What exactly does the US government want me to believe?

Evidence of what?

What reality could a child on a computer possibly present to me?

Well it is a forum primarily for atheists to gather and discuss but it's not exclusively atheist...
As for the progress part; progress on what? Not like we can do much about anything.

You think you cracked the JFK case based on image manipulation you did on your computer. You think finding artifacts in a compressed digital photo actually means something.

There's very little to understand.

If you begin by assuming that premise, you're incorrigible.

I do not think that word means what you think it means.

Funnily enough, a common tendency to rationalism and skepticism make us rather disinclined to buy into such nonsensical conspiracist tosh.

The occasional drive-by special guest notwithstanding.

Who is we? What definitive evidence do we have? The photos you posted are extremely vague.

Conspiracy theorists nearly always rely on retardedly convoluted and nonsensical plots as an explanation for how the powers that be manage to influence events.

Their conception of how the government functions has about as much semblance to reality as Narnia does. You don't need to keep up a monthly quota of dozens of egregiously maniacal schemes in order to maintain power. Constant massacring of one's own citizens, indiscriminate internal assassination plots, secret meetings with reptilian shape-shifters, and master minding all acts of domestic terrorism; none of these are effective means of asserting your influence and securing your authority. If anything, it requires a level of competence virtually unseen from our government. Furthermore, if the government met the competency required to get away with these absurdly intricate and overreaching plots to the point where we wouldn't have all these people living in their parents' basements ostensibly "revealing" said plots, they wouldn't have a REASON to resort to such excesses since they would have their act together enough to rule without the need for a constant stream of ridiculously high-risk gambits.

This is not to say that the government is a goodie two-shoes that never violates the basic rights and sensibilities of its citizens, it has a rather extensive track record of that. The problem is that conspiracy theorists take it way too far and tend to not understand what constitutes as a plausible motivation, nor do they seem to recognize more obvious and grounded problems that are more profoundly impacting the country. It's true that the government would prefer a population that has difficulty connecting the dots, but the dyed-in-wool crackpots are connecting dots that don't even exist, and I believe that's the crux of the divide. I don't disregard 90% of conspiracies because I'm a blind sheep that obeys every word the government says, I disregard them because I prefer to focus on real issues with our government, not paranoid, delusional drivel that might as well be the equivalent of donning armor to fight the magical boogeymen dwelling under our beds as if we were five years old again.


A more reasonable person would observe that the government has a tendency to screw the pooch on a regular basis. Conspiracy theorists seem to be convinced that the only way for the government to get their rocks off is to screw the whole barnyard.

It makes me wonder; maybe conspiracy theorists are a conspiracy by the government to make people who question authority appear to be absolute cretins. Consider

Edit: I'm really confused....I thought somebody had posted a more recent post than the last one. I'll chalk it up as a conspiracy committed by the forum team to guide me into convincing myself I'm losing my marbles. Because that's clearly just the most rational assumption to make.

That was a different thread, but well said regardless. Thumbsup
