Good day to you all,
My name is Joe. I've been a lurker of the ATS shadows for many years. I registered this account in 2012, but have been visiting since 2007ish. The
reason being, is that I simply enjoy reading all the different sides of arguements, especially when it comes to the conspiracy world. Reading through
a post, usually provides me the answers I hope to find, and you all provide those well enough without my contribution.
An example, as simple as it is, UFO's. Whenever I open a post with a video/pictures of a potential UFO, there are always people who are able to
intelligently debunk it with actual knowledge, and not just speculation. My contribution would only be speculation. Same with "Mars rocks"...I get a
kick out of those posts. Fun to look at, fun to read.
I'm 32 years old, going on 33. I'm an Active Duty Air Force member who chooses to maintain neutrality on most matters, especially when it comes to
military/politics. I don't believe in modern religion, but I do believe there is a higher power. I don't believe in politics, especially when it's
centered around a 2 party system and has corruption at all levels. I do believe there is life beyond our own solar system. I love science, but I
also believe that science and religion will one day come together. (perhaps science is essentially the study of that higher power?)
I'm always striving to learn, never too quick to form a thought or a belief. I'm a realist, often looked at as a pessimist. I was born in Southern
California, but I claim Wyoming as my home because that's where I spent most of my youth. I'm currently stationed in Ohio. I enjoy serving my
country, but I do see flaws in the system that I serve. I'm a father first, a golf enthusiest, and love all things sports. My one true gift in life
is my ability to write. Many times people have urged me to write. And I've recently began writing columns for a local paper.
Over the past few months, I've started to speak out of the shadows here. A comment here and there is all. But, I've gotten to know these boards
pretty well, and I think there are some areas where I can contribute. I won't get to "phage" status, or "Slayer" status with how much I'll post
here....but you might see me pop in a few more threads. As I continue to gain knowledge, I have developed more of a purpose to spread that knowledge
and insight so that others may learn, and/or I may continue to learn on a different level.
Anyway...a long introduction, I know. But one thing I've learned is that if you're going to do or say something, say it right the first time. I look
forward to disussing the conspiracy world more with you all and I know that I won't let you down, nor will you let me down.
