It's been my experience that the UFO, paranormal, religious, cryptids, almost all high strangness is more or less interrelated.

Throw in a healthy dose of shaman roots and it gets even more confusing. If there are answers; we are still to primitive to comprehend them.

Agreed, Mr Kev, to that thanks for the local treasures. This place may not have answers, but some excellent questions are generated.

Indeed.

No "answers" yet.

Indeed.

The first step to attaining wisdom, is to realize you are a doofus.

I've spent years as as doofus.

Uh-huh. I am devolving into total cluelessness, myself... I am even questioning old Renee's premise with "am I, really?"

Oh, and forgot to mention to include yourself as a local treasure... I (at least think I) missed you terribly, heh.

I would like to add that from the beginning I appreciated your openess to discuss and ask things since that's not an evidence, certainly not towards what you call 'a non scolar'.

Thanks for the many helpful pointers, advice and stimulating putting sense in the 'non-sense'.

For what it's worth, it's been a fun ride so far.

You forgot Ridhya with his fake alien Blue Beam obsession


Im glad you are back around Kev spreading the weird. Make ATS Weird Again! I will just leave with this:

Five friends go camping in the woods. A mysterious light appears in the sky and moves in ways that standard aircraft cannot. The first friend says, "it's an alien craft!" The second says, "it's an angel!" The third says, "it's a government black ops aircraft!" The fourth says, "it's a psychological projection!" The fifth says, "It's a plasma cryptid!"
They are all correct.

I see that you've paid attention! Wonderful!

As for "weird" -- it's always been here with us.. it is in fact US.

We are just getting a slightly better look at it recently, due to
the advance of science.

A little secret here:

If you want to join the 'circle jerk', do original research or at least come up with
new, creative "delusions" that you are having, then tag them as "thought
experiments" and defend them to the death.

I'm sure that Heisenberg, Einsten, etc. did the same thing.. only they turned
out to be rightish.

Being in the 'circle jerk' isn't necessarily that wonderful anyway.. there's nothing
wrong with taking a good seat and munching on popcorn.

I do that too.

Due to strange circumstances currently unfolding in a couple threads,
I'm scaling back on posting. But I'm still here. Love you all.

This thread seems to be the place to share a few thoughts.

This is my favorite movie:

The Invention of Lying

Now I know the sociological reasons as to why lying evolved..
its actually a form of social glue.. but as evolution has no
defined goal.. the problem here, is that short term gain
is always selected for, as short-term survival advantages
are all that matter.. as more babies can always be popped
out.. humans are great at that.

But in the long term, lying is a very toxic business, and it
will be the death of all of us.. whether that's physical
extinction, or simply that our lies cause a speciation
event or AI simply takes us out.. either by eradication
(that would be wise on its part) or by assimilation..

humans as we know them today won't last for long.

The reason that I'm bringing up lying, is that I'm terrible
at it. I'm also terrible at keeping SOME confidences.
If science is involved, if cutting-edge research is
involved.. I simply cannot be trusted.

It's not that I'm a bad person.. and I always try to
keep confidences.. and I know that I'm supposed
to.. i try very hard.

But I'm terrible at it.

I truly believe that humans would do much better
if they decided to live in the world of "The Invention
of Lying", before lying was invented that is.

And while lying is the key tactic in most of human
en devours, it's especially rank in fields such as
spirituality, religion, and the research of the paranormal
and of course the highest evolutionary form of lying
every accomplished by humans or "aliens" --- UFOLogy.

I simply cannot work in a group, as I can't keep my
mouth shut when it comes to scientific research.

Dispelling ignorance, my own included, is my major
desire.

I *could* work with a group that held *NO* secrets
whatsoever.. that published every lost dot of
everything.. but I've never heard of such a group.

I had thought of starting such a group many times
in my life.. I event went and registered various
honesty-themed domain names.. they were readiy
available.. as nobody values such things.

But of course I got hit on all sides with the
'necessity of lying' from everyone I sought
to work with.. and this was back when I
was an Internet millionaire or at least close
to it..

Lying is the death of us.. one way or another,
and there is nothing that I can do about it..
it's wired into all of us.. except perhaps a
few autistics like myself.

Now on that note.. I must admit, as I 'worship'
honesty basically.. I can certainly be quite
obnoxious.. OH I have QUITE the laundry list
of obnoxious habits and quirks.. I am super
big hearted, but I might not make a good
friend.. I'm too straight-forward.

Well anyway.. this isn't meant to be a mea
culpa for me.

I'm just pointing out that I've finished my
journey in UFOlogy due to my not being
able to keep my mouth shut, and perhaps
(I don't agree with the assertion), possibly
misrepresenting something.

I think the "powerful person" is simply
confused on the point that caused the
anger.. but as they aren't telling me
the facts.. I have no idea whether I
was guilty of something or not..

But it's a fair point.. no doubt.. i'm
terrible at secrecy.

So.. that means I don't belong with
most human groups.. that deal with
sensitive topics in any case.

There's no shame I guess.. I just
don't belong in UFOlogy, spirituaity,
religion, and paranormal research,
which are my only interests in
life, other than loving my wife,
closest friends and my puppy dogs.

So agian.. thank you all.. there are some
truly wonderful people on ATS and in UFOlogy..
it's been an honor clashing with you all..

Our politicians have made a science out of lying-its called "SPIN" they turn into some palatible bit that "sounds" plausible, and causes no commotion-we go on with our lives, none the wiser. The human race is a difficult community to browse in!

I will be honest, as a new poster I only recognize a few names due to a fair amount of people posting nonsense.

However, yourself, THEGUT, and mirageman are three names that I notice due to insightful thoughts. I’ve been lurking around here for the better part of a year, and I must say I’ve learned a lot when it comes to UFOology, Metaphysics, and even a bit of religious ideas.

I believe you yourself have even chimed in on one of my topics, and I can say with certainty that I respect you as much as one can when it comes to the atmosphere of a community forum.

Oh, and I love The Invention of Lying.

Enjoy the journey kev, the truth belongs to no-one and only answers to itself. I hope you find yours, it's been a pleasure.

I think that the truth is out there but it morphs a lot.

Agreed on the list kev, I would personally add Karl12 too. Well before you joined there were also a few other great, level headed and knowledgable posters. If I could remember their names I would recommend their posts too, if you haven’t come across them already.
