Like a lot of other members, I lurked around the boards for a long time after stumbling over the site when I was looking up stuff online.
I am the kooky one in the family, they make jokes about my tin foil hat, aliens ...and did we really land on the moon in 1969? (all good teasing )
that kind of thing.
I am actually old enough to remember being allowed to stay up all night in July 1969, and still can't shake off the " pivotal moment " feeling that it
left me with.
But for as long as I can remember I have been drawn to anything paranormal or unexplained. Grew up reading Stitchin and Von Daniken..seeds were
planted early for me..... since then I have had a thirst for hidden knowledge.
I like reading philosophy, quantum stuff ( which i don't understand but it fascinates me anyway ) UFOlogy, Disappearances, MK Ultra, Government
Conspiracies, Space Stuff and lately I am finding it harder to resist the current affairs/war boards although they usually wind me up no end and I
need an ATS break to mend my soul.
I read more than I post, usually dip in to the boards every day ( unless I am politically burnt out ) and love the wide ranging points of view,
experiences and the plethora of subject matter.
I would say that ATS has helped me be more subjective and reasoned. I would like to Believe, but am more drawn to hard evidence and proof than I used
to be in the Stitchin / Von Daniken / Apollo 11 days.
Love this thread btw..especially reading the "ATS veteran" posts
