Greetings ATS community!
I've already posted a reply in another thread, but wanted to make things official and introduce myself.
First I'll confess that, yes, I've literally been lurking about on this great Web site for years. Like many here, I'm one of those people who
enjoys staying up late at night and researching all kinds of topics that you just don't read too much about in the MSM. On one of those long,
late-night surfing runs I happened upon ATS and have been reading dutifully ever since. Alas, as the title of my post says, it's time to come out of
the shadows and participate in the community. I would like to extend a hearty thank you to the mods and everyone who takes the time to maintain this
most excellent forum; I would also like to say thank you to all the dedicated individuals who contribute all of the fantastic information that has
helped me delve further into the vast, unknown depths of the universe. I can only hope that anything I eventually contribute will return even a small
fraction of the favor.
Just a little about myself:
My acedemic background is in English and Philosophy. Thus, I love good, lively discussions on all kinds of topics--spirituality, religion, history,
cutting-edge science (e.g., quantum physics), the creative arts, the paranormal, and yes, good old fashioned, hackle-raising conspiracy theories--just
to name a few.
I'm a dedicated family man, but in my spare time I enjoy reading just about anything I can get my hands on, exploring the outdoors, gardening, and
practicing the martial arts.
Finally, I would like to state that I will do my level best to honor and respect this community by being mindful of my tone in posts and replies,
courteous to all, and welcoming of views that I disagree with. I will also do my level best to ensure that anything I post is well-researched and
cited, which is an old college habit in any case.
Cheers and thanks for reading.
