To be perfectly honest, I believe there are some ATM ideas you should not be able to hold if you are a mod here. I do not think a mod here should believe in tired light or plasma universe or creationism or Sitchin. I think there are some ideas which have been debunked here so frequently and so thoroughly that the only way you can still hold them is that you want to. It's not that no mod should be allowed to hold ATM ideas; for one thing, I do agree that it's how science develops. It's just that I think mods who have dumb ATM ideas just aren't intelligent enough to moderate the more esoteric threads. Or possibly just educated, but how much education does that take?
