So its amazing to see the different types of people here from all cultures and backgrounds. Unfortunately, my grammar game is not so strong so I hope the grammar Nazis forgive me
. Anyhow, I am a medical student who just recently joined the forums and would like to know how everyone on here found out about ATS. Very excited to here your life journeys! I found out when a friend of mine referred me to this website about 3 years ago, and ever since then I have been creeping every few days because you learn a lot about so many cool things. May you all be blessed with long life!

My husband was actually the one that directed me towards ATS.

This was around 2004. Jeez it's been almost 10 years now that I have visited this site. I lurked for many years before I actually joined though. Most of the content was a bit intimidating at first so, I just read and observed and learned a ton.

I've been visiting here almost daily ever since.

Welcome to ATS by the way.

Researching certain topics constantly had ATS on the first Google page

My dad turned me on to ATS back in '09, I lurked for a few years while testing the waters, liked what I saw and eventually joined as a member. Here I am.

Lurked for a decade. I was immature and couldn't form coherent thoughts at the time.

I grew up and joined many years later. Much hasn't changed since then except the more I try to engage different topics and personalities here, the better I get at it and the smarter I become.

First things first sport, your video is broken!

Right, to the nitty gritty then. I have, as I often do with dates and times and what have you, been utterly flummoxed as to the exact reason for my joining. I have however been interested in the possibility of alien life in the universe for some time, along with other areas of scientific interest, including a passing familiarity with forensics, physics, biology and medicine, engineering and the like. I am also interested in matters pertaining to politics, sociological concerns, and so in and so forth.

However I may have come here after seeing something I could not explain in the sky, which turned out upon further research, to be more than likely to be a set of bloody stupid sky lanterns at great distance. My join date says some time in 2007, but my memory (due to some hilarious balls ups during my mothers labour, and my birth) problems mean that although outwardly appearing utterly normal, and being able to communicate effectively, some details of my life escape me as readily as water falls from the sky.

It sure is! I've lost many of hours reading and learning new things here.

If I find an interesting thread, I can't stop reading until I finish the whole thing.

Here's your video




I lurked for a few years then one day decided to take the plunge back in 08 in the UFO /Alien forums. I was also a very avid reader before joining of the Ancient civilization forum as well. I wanted to some day write great threads like the ones that drew me here in the first place.

I first joined around 2004 as I was researching about the twin towers due to an experience and also a UFO /abduction experience. I recall writing about sacred geometry and neutrinos back then as well as supernatural, aliens, predictions and secret societies.

I am certain I recall certain well known members joining, some MODS also, the site was sort of smaller scale.

I stopped using ATS after a few years and a few new computers as I didn't recall the username or password and rejoined in 2009.

Welcome and great thread idea!

I found out about ATS on my own - back when I was just 15 years old. I have always been curious about the strange stuff in the world and I considered myself a 15 yr old interested in things most kids of the same age are not.

Anyways, one day I was simply reading about the paranormal, searching some things on google and low and behold two ATS paranormal threads show up on the first page. I clicked, read the OP and the replies, and I really liked the layout of it all. (ATS was like the first forum I ever had seen with threads and whatnot.)

Anyways I read a bit but did not bookmark the page or anything. About a month later - I was researching the conspiracies related to 9/11. Sure enough once again ATS threads showed up on google results so I clicked, noticed it was the same site with the paranormal stuff from ago - and I realized this site should definitely be a keeper.

Been coming here ever since for years now. Most of the time I come everyday. I've had periods with months without ATS just because I did not want to think about anything heavily in life at that time. Love the information and views here.

So yea : long story short, google! Showed many people since.

Blossom Goodchild and the Galactic Federation of Light sent me.

I was listening to the radio and the Djs were talking about her and her prediction for that October. I googled her name and one of the first things that popped up was a hundred page mega thread about her.

I posted anon for a while then joined.

Needless to say ole blossoms prediction did not come to pass. Lol

I always find it odd that people have to always mention they 'lurked' for years before joining here..
Anyway I used to listen to a podcast with a guy called Ross Hemsworth (can't remember the name of it) and they had an impersonation of George Bush saying he spends all his spare time on the above top secret forums.... so I checked it out..

I love you, TrueBrit. Sincerely. That was magnificent.


To the OP, Nadius:

Why?

Seriously, there is something wrong with the world when I'm the one person to ask why you want to know how everyone came to be here and I'm not even that paranoid.
