    We need to evolve beyond these teams that we call "skeptics", "truthers", "athiests" and whatever. These are nothing but labels with all kinds of preordained belief systems and paradigms attached to them. Not that much different than religions and cults.

    Both "truthers" and "skeptics" claim they want the truth, when for the most part, they're mostly interested in defending their beliefs. "Skeptics" are defending corporate paradigms while "truthers" are defending alternative paradigms.

    True skepticism and truth seeking questions everything and everyone.. and defends nothing.

    Wouldn't it defend truth and facts?

    I find it ironic that you talk about labels and grouping in "teams" and then lump all skeptics into a team and label them all as defending corporate paradigms.

    To make a point. Are you a "skeptic" or a human being?

    Truthers don't actually want the truth. They are more interested in falsely accusing their own country's elected government of atrocious acts of mass murder on it's own citizens based on mythological hearsay rather than face the hard scientific facts of reality. Truthers are just False Flaggers who like to plant false flags against their own country while ignoring any explanation that doesn't fit their fictional story. Their whole point is to undermine their own country whenever than can, using the ugly cheap weapon of false accusation. Truthers are the planters of many traitorous lies, feeding the sane and insane alike with their poisonous accusations against their homeland. Sadly history has already tragically shown what the politically insane do with these falsehoods thru the acts of the Tucson Shooter and the Boston Bombers.

    Every single word you said can equally be applied to "skeptics." Watch...

    Skeptics don't actually want the truth. They are more interested in defending the interests of corporate, banking and military industrial complex elite which are international in nature and have nothing to do with the United States while under the false pretense of being patriotic. They false believe whatever fairly tales the corporate media feeds them. They blindly accept NIST's report as evidence for the official story of 9/11 when it's completely based on hypothetical computer simulations with complete disregard to physical data. They went as far REFUSING to examine any physical evidence. Skeptics give NIST gospel status even though it's a government agency openly affiliated with Department of Defense and other agencies who stood to benefit from the tragedy. 9/11 family victims dissatisfied with the mockery NIST made of the scientific method have rightfully called for an independent, forensic, scientific investigation. Ironically, skeptics continue blindly defending the fairy tales of the corporate and military interests who have used 9/11 to make BILLIONS of dollars and murder MILLIONS of innocent people while turning the country into a police state where your every single phone call and e-mail is collected and monitored. Rather than questioning, skeptics are falling subject to propaganda such as nationalism which is nothing more than a manipulation tool designed to manufacture slavish consent so these interests can continue their rackets.

    Joe Rogan is a perfect example of a well-rounded person who can take what makes most sense from both schools of thought while discarding the bullshit:

    And we go from moving away from "truther" and "skeptic" to using it to attack one another. This thread is quickly going nowhere.

    Locked for now. I may reopen it pending further consideration.
