As for why he upped and left earlier, it was so he could take a selfie to post on his Twitter feed


Good. Updates are good. Dude is up late updating his presence. It's 22:30.

Are you sure you are getting all of this?

Metaphorical liquids just erupted from my nose.

Tom, can you please expand on the "old gods" angle? Are there any specific gods that these beings represent? Or just the stories of old gods in general like an archtype? Do you mean like Zeus or Cthulu? I am hoping Cthulu, I for one welcome the return of the Old Gods. I want to like, lead a Dark Pantheon and stuff. You know?

I am hoping Cthulu,


Oh, God, yes! We are sympatico on that!

Yes, please, Cthulhu (he's coming anyway).

*yes*

The docuseries will have a lot more information, and we will be talking about many other things. It's not the time or the place to get into these things here. Religion, Nuclear War, submarines, Greek Mythology.... a reply to: raedar



This is what I was afraid of. That this whole AMA thing is disingenuous and just a shameless plug.

I don't think the posters here - veteran or newb - will be (or should be, frankly) satisfied with such vague responses. We've come here to ATS together to share information not to hoard it or to lord it over each other. Each one of us has more questions than we do answers. That's why we are here. To ask them together and slowly fill in the blanks with what we have. Nothing stokes the passion of these posters more than the possibility of finding new answers and resources.

It is disappointing when someone purports to have the answers that keep most of us awake at night but are unwilling to share them.

Why are you here Tom? What do you hope to accomplish?

Tom,

My apologies if this is a bit redundant. I didn't peruse the many responses you've both given and received, so you may have already covered this. Years back, I read a book titled "Alien Encounters" by Chuck Missler. His theory is that these alien beings-that we have all been conditioned to know them by-are actually a method of deception and that these beings are demons disguising themselves so that the human race spreads the word of Satan. Are you familiar with this theory and can you expand on it, if so? Thanks for your time dude, and being in the Air Force, I know what risk you're putting yourself at by doing this. It's bigger than some people will understand but know it doesn't go unappreciated a reply to: TomDeLonge

So you've contributed 2 days on ATS and you demand our guest give you more of his time?

Thank you to TOM for spending time with us, yes it was short, but I understand you have plenty on your plate so thanks for popping by!


THIS.

Am I the only one totally aggravated with about 97% of this thread??

All the "hey Tom, I'm your biggest fan" "no, I'm his biggest fan" and the "what about this album" and the "I LOVEEEE Blink!" comments really muddied up the ENTIRE thing. I get that he's a big rock star, but come on. This is about aliens!

I also found it odd that old time ATSers who've been around here forever had posts taken down for being rude, or whatever...I guess if their posts were rude, why weren't all the posts by those members who JUST SIGNED UP TODAY, asking about Blink 182 and his music not removed for being completely off topic??

Here's my question, and ANYONE with more than 200 posts can answer it if the AMA is over.


Did Tom ever touch on the questions regarding Astr0's epic thread??

For those who have no clue or are new...It is this thread, one of THE best on ATS, IMO: Astr0's OP

It still gives me the chills. Love it!

Another thing...Anyone notice our usual debunking friend from NASA was no where near this thread today?? Where's Jim Oberg been, anyway? I may not agree with him on things but I truly do hope he is well and I'm a bit surprised by his absence. I think he may have provided some great commentary today.


And, if you see this Tom, PLEASE review this thread from a beloved former ATSer, Astr0, and share your thoughts on it.

It is possible that I missed it, with the multiple off topic posts, etc. and plus I really do have ADHD and this thread is overwhelming for folks like me, so it's possible. If I did miss it, will someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!!

Hmmm...I saw that it was touched on several times so I was hoping I just missed it.

Thank you for letting me know so I didn't spend another hour searching through the thread, again.

My pleasure. I hate to sound like a downer but there hasn't really been a lot of substance in this AMA. Seems this was a meet and greet and we are to wait for the other 5 books and docuseries to get the meat and potatoes. At least that is what Tom has said.

Out of interest, have you ever read Astr0s first thread?

I just looked at it....contradictory.

Feels like we should have had an AMA thread and a seperate discussion thread. All the ignorant and unthankful chatting shouldnt be in here. Everybody can read. Its obvious that no one knows if he is saying the truth and there is absolutely no need to mention or discuss it a thousand times.

Tom, if you come back once again, please check my questions on page 12. Started reading the free parts of your book yesterday and i am kinda hooked i must say.

This is how I feel, MM.

If he was pulling our leg, HE needs to write a book, or ten, and movies galore!

The thread I asked about has stuck with me. Something about it punched me in the gut. And I was a TOTAL non-believer until that fateful drive home I had from work several years ago. I didn't think about the topic, read about it, etc. Just knew basically about Roswell and Area 51 and that was about it, lol!

I leave for seven hours to play Fallout 4 and I come back to this?

This is why we can't have nice things, kids!



Man, we got some real Keyboard Warriors out here tonight, friends and neighbors.

These AMAs aren't a paid gig, you know. I don't agree with some of what Tom said but I still have enough respect to comprehend that he is likely a busy man. I agree that he could have handled his egress with a bit more panache but... what can you do?

*in French accent*

"Who knows what those wacky LA types are thinking, eh?"

Damn, hail Eris!

Well that was the most lacklustre AMA yet on here looks like the quote from the imagination of Tom De longe was 100% correct.

Tom,
I listened to your interview with Nory. Very compelling stuff! I'm one of those who is skeptical.... But I also have an open mind. It fascinating to me with how it lines up with religion.

2 questions:

1) are "the others" extra dimensional beings?

2) are they here screwing with us to feed off of negative emotion? Or are we still trying to determine all of this?

And lastly...... Thank you for your amazing career. You are a massive inspiration to me, and I'm a musician and audio engineer because of that. And I can't wait to see you play again. Cheers brother.

Everyone getting all uppity about people being confused and let down, and showing their frustration. I think it is all warranted and I don't remember seeing anything resembling any complaints or trolls until late in the thread when it became obvious he was apparently done without saying more than "the old god stories are true" but then not even expanding on any of that. Then leaving without addressing anyone, then coming back to tell a poster to "stop complaining and be grateful" and that "this is not the time or place to get into this stuff, that is what the docuseries is for".

I'll stand proud on my little soap box thanks. If you don't have time for an AMA, maybe reschedule. After all, it is HIS book that is getting sold, and HIS multimedia company producing it all, and his idea to do an AMA. I don't remember asking for any of it or requesting it start at a certain time.

Just a little more professionalism would have gone a long way.

By the way, not picking a fight with you over it all. Just saying. I'm not really mad.
