Couldn't agree with you more Agent008. Great intro and great thread!
When I first discovered ATS I didn't even know anything about the 9/11 conspiracy! I stumbled across ATS by accident and the first thread I remember
was "Real Life Super Powers." Not long after that I got stuck into "Concious OOBE. It's real!" by the River Godess. Two fantastic threads. The
topics of the day were CoIntelPro, MKUltra, Chemtrails, The Greys, the Anunaki, John Titor, Billy Meir, David Icke, etc. That was back in 2005. For
a while ATS was a great place to learn about all the stuff you are not supposed to know.
However, after a while, there seemed to be nothing new. All the topics were the same, all the input you had heard before and it was rare to come
across something new. Occasionally I'd check in and see if there was anything new but usually there wasn't. The thing that kept me checking in every
once in a while was the thirst I had to discuss interesting topics with others and the memories of the early days when I kept learning new secrets
that have been hidden from us, but it just became so rare to find something here that satisfied those needs.
Sadly, ATS is a mere shadow of itself in the early days. I still remember what it was like though, and this thread has given me hope that it can
return to it's former glory. In the last few days I have actually been looking around for other serious discussion forums on the internet. Finding
one that is not completely brainwashed with Mainstream thinking is very difficult to find. Even when one does fit the bill it's usually very
partisan. Despite it's current state, ATS still houses a wide variety of open-minded, intelligent and non-partisan members that keeps me coming
PS: Perhaps, there is already something here, but I would dearly love to have a place to be able to blog my thoughts on different topics, rather than
only having the debate style threads that we have here on ATS.
