Exploring the Truth

I became fascinated with exploring the truth of mankind's history while still in grade school, when I became obsessed with the ancient Sumerians. This lead me to begin to question almost everything that I was being taught in school, needless to say this began a very difficult time for me. Most children my age learned very quickly that asking too many questions that adults were unwilling or unable to answer could lead to trouble. In this article Debunkers, Paid Schills and Truth Seekers - Truth Needs No Defense I will share with my readers some of the many problems any child or adult faces when they question orthodox history, science and mainstream beliefs and why debunkers and paid schills have such an easy time scoffing at those willing to think outside the box.

I'm writing this article to help others recognize that the truth doesn't always make sense, isn't always logical and is often far more complex that what the public is lead to believe. The Powers That Be (the small elite group of people that really run the world) have known for a very long time that information is power and that the majority will often accept the first version of reality that makes the most sense to them, even if parts of the story don't quite make sense or are left completely out.

If any story is to become accepted it must contain some truth but not all the truth needs to be revealed. The Powers That Be (TPTB) are well versed in human psychology and know that most often if parts of the story must be concealed that the human mind will fill in the blanks with their own version of reality. This has been shown to be true with eye witness testimony many witnesses may 'think' they have seen a car crash but in reality they only saw the aftermath.

Upon hearing the crash they look up to see two cars involved in an accident and the human mind is able to interpret what must have happened without having actually seen what lead up to the event. Afterwards these same people will actually believe they saw the whole accident because their minds fill in the blanks.

The most well known example of this is the events of September 11, 2001, many eye witnesses saw a huge explosion rock the twin towers but had to be told it was an airplane crash. Millions of people 'saw' an airplane fly into the side of one of the twin towers but does this constitute proof, for many the answer would be yes, without a doubt. However if I show you a video of a UFO in broad daylight and tell you it is an alien space craft would you believe it, most people would say no.

The point is that we have no proof beyond some videos that a airplane actually hit the world trade center, we have no airplane parts, no luggage, no bodies. Everything that is used as proof could have been faked, recorded cell phone calls, passenger manifests, video of airplanes hitting the twin towers all could have been forged and created, no actually hands on proof exists, anywhere.

Regardless of what you choose to believe deception is a two way street, you have those doing the deceiving and those willing to accept the deceit, for to do otherwise would require you to alter your conception of reality. As I wrote above children learn at a very early age not to ask too many questions as it could lead to trouble.

"When we learn to trust our heart and soul we recognize that the truth needs no defense and stands alone like a beacon of light in a stormy sea of disinformation, lies and deception." -- DW

The trouble is that when we begin to question accepted reality it requires that we make a choice. It is far easier on our human psyche to accept the status quo than it is to question what we have 'seen' with our own eyes even if their is evidence to the contrary.

This is the reason why debunkers and paid schills are so successful because they do not have to proof anything, all they have to do is offer some reasonable explanations or ideas, the human mind will do the rest. Because science has become such a well ingrained institution from early childhood into adulthood, many explanations can be backed by scientific rhetoric and thus are believed without question.

Debunkers and Paid Schills

Debunkers and Paid Schills are both closely related terms, used to describe people that try to explain information using a variety of tactics that is contrary to alternative ideas and views. They basically try to reinforce the status quo by attacking the message or information of those in society exploring the truth (truth seekers).

In this article Debunkers, Paid Schills and Truth Seekers - Truth Needs No Defense, I will try to show why this kind of argument is unnecessary and pointless. The truth needs no defense and stands alone on its own merit.

The Wikipedia definition of a Debunker is: A debunker is a person who attempts to expose or discredit claims believed to be false, exaggerated or pretentious.[1] The term is closely associated with skeptical investigation of controversial topics such as U.F.O.s, claimed paranormal phenomena, cryptids, conspiracy theories, alternative medicine, religion, or exploratory or fringe areas of scientific or pseudoscientific research.

The difference between a good guy and a bad guy is, that a bad guy will use every angle, story or logical explanation to convince you he is a good guy and a good guy does not need to convince you of anything.

That is one of the main reasons I offer many of my articles as speculation and am not out to prove anything to anyone. I offer information that I have gleaned through years of research and critical thinking and do not try to insult my reader by proving anything, you are free to believe what you wish.

Now don't get me wrong, I do stand behind my beliefs but am more than willing to change my mind when offered alternative information. Many a reader has pointed out discrepancies, erroneous facts and even bad grammar or spelling and I am more than willing to edit these errors. I actually implore my readers to engage in reasonable discussions of my ideas, after all I seek the truth and am more than willing to explore new ideas.

Debunkers and Crop Circles

One of the most classic cases of debunking comes with the British Military's disinformation campaign on crop circles using two older men Doug Bower and Dave Chorley as their instruments of deception. These two hoaxers contrived to explain the phenomenon of crop circles by proclaiming they had been doing them for years using some rope and wooden boards.

The story, which was almost completely ignored by the British press, was picked by the America's Associated Press and distributed widely. These two hoaxers claimed they had been creating crop circles since 1978 and had created over 400 in the previous twelve years since their 'story' broke.

They made the absurd claim that they had made all the crop circles discovered in England, which would have meant that they were doing four a night some of which were sixty to one hundred miles apart, pretty good work for two men in their fifties. From 1989 to 1991 over 1,700 crop circles were reported in the UK alone not too mention the hundreds reported in the United States, Russia, Canada, Japan and Australia, these boys do seem to get around, maybe some aliens lent them a spacecraft?

However because this offered debunkers a reasonable explanation to a complex phenomenon, other debunkers added to the story claiming that using plastic boards instead of wooden ones would create enough static electricity to provide the cellular distortions found in the plants themselves, interesting indeed.

A noted ceralogist ( those who study crop circles) wrote that due largely to the Doug and Dave story "The common sense belief, that the crop circle phenomenon is nothing but an elaborate hoax, is now established as the official doctrine."

Dr. W.C. Levengood, owner of Argo Sciences, Inc. and Pinelandia Biophysics Laboratory, after an exhaustive three year study of crop circles noted that "Whatever is doing these formations, is affecting the fundamental biophysics and biochemistry of the plants . . . The consistent pattern of conductivity measurements in some formations compared to controlled plants indicates that the basic micro fibril structures of the plants have been altered. Such changes cannot be hoaxed."

Putting this basic cellular and chemical revelation aside, another scientist known for his studies of Stonehenge, Gerald S. Hawkins found that many crop circles had a completely unknown to man theorem based on the musical scale that coincided with geometric ratios.

Although many Ufologist suggest that these complex geometric patterns are a means of transmitted important information and messages to the people of Earth from aliens, what I found to be even more plausible considering they seem to have direct link to the UFO phenomenon is that it is a way of leaving complex messages to other space faring aliens visiting the planet. I first learned of this concept in the book Alien Agenda by Jim Marrs

A message board that does not last that long and is undecipherable by the native species would be a very clever way to leave information imprinted in fields behind for others of your kind following in your footsteps.

Paid Schills

Paid Schills are people that are hired by quasi-government agencies and institutions to actually go to websites such as YouTube, Google, Yahoo and other websites to engage people that have left comments or the author of articles on these websites. Their purpose is to incite arguments, leave disinformation and distract the readers and the author's from the main point of the article.

They use a variety of tactics to create and sow dissension by the use of sexual remarks, racism and political rhetoric, all designed to distract the readers of this information. They are quite effective and can even create incidents that lead to moderators to banning readers and their comments. Engaging schills in their baiting tactics is pointless and exactly what the schill is hoping for.

A recent article entitled I Was a Paid Internet Shill: How Shadowy Groups Manipulate Internet Opinion and Debate reveals how the paid schill operates, is hired, whom they work for and what their tactics and goals are. Below are a couple of paragraphs in the article to show that these people and organizations are well organized, thorough and well trained.

The second binder was smaller, and it contained information specific to the web sites I would be assigned to. The sites I would work were: Godlike Productions, Lunatic Outpost, CNN news, Yahoo News, and a handful of smaller sites that rotated depending on need. As stated, I was NOT assigned to work ATS (although others in my group were), which is part of the reason I am posting this here, rather than elsewhere. I wanted to post this on Godlike Productions at first, but they have banned me from even viewing that site for some reason (perhaps they are onto me?). But if somebody connected with this site can get the message to them, I think they should know about it, because that was the site I spent a good 70% of my time working on.

The site-specific info in the second binder included a brief history each site, including recent flame-wars, as well as info on what to avoid on each site so as not to get banned. It also had quite detailed info on the moderators and the most popular regged posters on each site: location (if known), personality type, topics of interest, background sketch, and even some notes on how to “push the psychological buttons” of different posters. Although I didn’t work for ATS, I did see they had a lot of info on your so-called “WATS” posters here (the ones with gold borders around their edges). “Focus on the popular posters,” my trainer told me. “These are the influential ones. Each of these is worth 50 to 100 of the lesser known names.”

Godlike Productions and Above Top Secret are two sites I personally have been banned from for protesting when my articles have been stolen and posted on these sites without citation. Both of these websites are notoriously shady and are often populated by paid schills looking to attack unsuspecting commenters.

I suspect that many paid schill organizations are actually provided various forms of protection from moderators on such sites mention above as they seem to get away with the very same things that get most people banned.

I was banned from the website Earth Changes and the Pole Shift for simply asking pertinent questions that no one on the site was willing or able to answer. Evidently if you agree with their information you are allowed to comment but if you ask any questions that may reveal their true intentions or agenda then you will be banned, their loss not mine.

Many times people leave comments of a derogatory nature simple to create arguments and scorn, ridicule and mock information that maybe contrary to their world view. Contempt prior to investigation prevents many people from ever learning the truth.

The Truth Stands Alone

I have learned to trust my heart because ultimately that is where we will find the truth. When we discover the truth we will recognize that it need not be defended because it stands alone like a beacon of light in our heart. This article Debunkers, Paid Schills and Truth Seekers - Truth Needs No Defense was written to show that although there are many who will try to mask the truth in lies, deception and disinformation that it is really a pointless exercise because ultimately it is up to each of us individually to determine.

Often debunkers use natural phenomenon and science to explain away scenarios that defy logic, or require that we stretch our imagination beyond what is normal. Science demands that we explain everything in terms that are material that we can touch and see and yet through all its incredible advances it cannot explain the simple idea of consciousness.

Does our consciousness cease when we die, how do we formulate ideas, how does imagination work, where do the images in our minds eye come from?

These are all ideas that are real but the answers are different for all of us, so ultimately we must trust our hearts to determine the truth as no amount of logical reasoning has every fully explained these ideas.

A recent Gallup poll shows that over 70% of Americans believe that UFOs are real but does this belief make it so, of course not. Over 60% of Americans believe that Aliens have visited this planet and are here now. Where did this belief come from, considering our own government denies their existence and fails to provide proof of any sort.

It comes from our heart, it comes from opening our minds, exploring the truth and seeking answers that our government refuses to provide. It doesn't come from science, it doesn't come from debunkers, it doesn't come from paid schills, it comes from our hearts. Instinctively we know the truth, because we know deep down that we are not alone and never have been.

Instinctively we can feel that we are moving into a new way of thinking, a new paradigm that will require that we open our minds and our hearts to new ideas. We know that the advancement of knowledge will not be enough to sustain us and that we will have to grow spiritually as well. Science and spiritualism are two sides of the same coin and both must be embraced to achieve the ascension that we all can feel is coming.

Mankind is becoming more that human and right now as our society awakens it is apparent to many that when we learn to trust our hearts we will recognize that the truth needs no defense and stands alone like a beacon of light in a stormy sea of disinformation, lies and deception.

You make the call

Do you feel the truth stands alone and needs no defense?

      Only Yer Opinion, I am not allowed on for questioning some of their information and haven't visited that site for years.

      There have been hundreds of write -ups on paid shills on the internet and can link you to half a dozen, this article is merely my editorial on the subject.

      I see you are still searching for some inspiration to write an article, I hope you find the courage to getter done.

      The REAL write up about the paid shills (not spelled Schills) is at the site that this JOKER so often steals from. He or she probably only got the idea that this is an important topic, shills, from the pole shift ning! So how about giving some credit where credit is due?

      It is our duty to question authority and by failing to do so mankind has become one big flock of enslaved brainwashed drones. By being silent and not doing anything about the daily injustices around us, we are only making TPTB get bolder and bolder with their satanic agenda. They KNOW we're not going to do anything about it so they go ahead and rub it in our faces through every media outlet.

      I agree completely that by embracing both science and spirituality we will be able to reach a new paradigm.

      Nice to read you after so long! Though it doesn't feel like a long time at all. By the way, how's Nibiru (your cat)?

      My troubles as far as getting banned from commenting on You Tube, Godlike Productions and Earth Changes started write after I joined ATS and began commenting on stories, articles and videos.

      I always felt there was a connection and now I know, I felt that ATS was too slanted and had an agenda it wasn't sharing, possibly even a site created to attract people that could then be banned from other sites using their computer address as a source.

      I look forward to the link . . .

      What a great write-up and very enjoyable too, we certainly are moving into a new way of thinking. Interesting theory on crop circle communication too, and thanks for the link!

      The Above Top Secret website is run by the CIA by the way, just in case you didn't know. However, there is some great info there and also at Godlike Productions. There is one website I use as a source of information, it's a bit like an encyclopedia of censored information, I'll send you a link.
