Hello ATS! I highly enjoy this website at times as I believe I have gained quite a bit of perspective from this place. I was raised extremely
christian and lived in a very christian community, very sheltered from the outside world. Websites like ATS have opened my mind some and I believe
myself to be an overall more educated, and tolerant person. That being said, there's still some things I do not understand about this place, topics
that get way too much interest.
Realize I am simply stating my opinion I have due to my experiences, and do not deem myself as the holder of truth, nor do I even believe I'm 100%
correct in any event ( Nor is anyone. )
1. Global warming
Seriously? We know the world has weather cycles, that it has ice ages, it warms up, cools down, all that fun stuff, yet we think humans directly
control all of this? How uneducated do you have to be to realize global weather cycling is a fact, not an opinion, and is not at all man caused - It
may be sped up by mans activities, but the world does it's own thing regardless if narcissistic humans enjoy giving themselves credit.
I don't know how much this topic needs to be drug through the mud. TPTB are evil, we were not told the truth about the events that occurred that
day, and focusing on figuring this, and other things out rather than figuring out how to overcome the obstacles we face constantly is perfect for
those controlling things. Yeah - Put all of your energy into a topic more than a decade old rather than putting any effort at all to fix the even
worse things happening today, wonderful idea, people.
3. Chem trails
There's been exactly zero evidence whatsoever to prove these even exist, and people come up with the worst "evidence" when trying to prove this is
even something worth talking about. My grand-father, and great-grand father have seen VAPOR trails in the air ever since they've seen planes/jets in
the skies, there's absolutely no mystery here whatsoever, and the burden of proof is on those still claiming chem trails exist - Proof they've not
been able to give, even in the slightest. I am glad this topic has died down a lot, but I'm not sure it will ever disappear altogether.
Now I cannot prove or disprove anything, but the TYPE of attention this topic gets every year is what drives me crazy. " I saw an odd flying thing I
could not - With my very limited civilian knowledge/experience - identify, so this planet must be run by psycho aliens with a plan to destroy the
universe. " - Okay, so that example is a bit far-fetched and not what ALL the UFO group sounds like, but it's definitely not a far stones throw away
from what I see online all the time. UFO means unidentified flying object - and most of you have no idea what military grade planes look like in the
air, anyways. I fully believe alien life exists, just think 99% of sightings are ignorant people not knowing what they're seeing. ( perhaps
including things like ball lightning, hessdalen lights, and the like - These I find interesting topics! )
5. A myriad of Anti-Christian topics
Growing up christian, the internet is chalked completely full and overflowing with people who are extremely ignorant on the views christians have.
Growing up christian myself - surrounded by catholics, mormons, lutherans, protestants etc, let me tell you about some things people don't know about
( Based on my experiences, and the people I've talked to - I am not generalizing all christians )
Christians believe in mutation and evolution - Yep! One of the topics people are most ignorant about altogether. The Christians I know believe God and
science go together - That dinosaurs existed, that animals have changed and mutated, evolved over the years. The only thing Christians I know believe
that is different from conventional scientists is that homo-sapiens specifically had more of God's work put into them, and did not naturally result
from monkeys years ago. - Modern science cannot actually find all the evidence needed to put a hole in this argument, nor could any evidence really
disprove that a greater being helped the events of humans coming into existence anyways. It's ignorance both to claim 100% fact humans are fully
naturally occurring without a God, and also ignorance to claim science is not involved in my opinion. - You can't indisputably prove either. ( And
scientists think they can )
Christians are not anti-abortion no matter what, and always. - Hearing one idiotic conservative politician say something stupid does not equal all
christian people following that train of thought. Most Christians I know believe it to be a grey area, and actually support abortion in cases of
incest, rape, or life-threatening cases - With a lot of care, sympathy, and understanding put into other situations.
The internet seems to be more and more liberal, so they will find articles like " Gay teen kills themselves due to christian parents " and
over-generalize and stereotype rather than denying ignorance like they claim to be doing.
A good day to you ATS, if you made it through my long rant, I salute you.
