Hello,

I've been on ATS for about 8 years, ill never forget when my friend showed me this website it was awesome, this website was literally my go to NEWS website, but something has happened over the past 2 years, LITERALLY everything thats being discussed on this website, or other conspiracy websites, is nothing but Politics. I remember when i could go on here and weekly read something ive never heard before,now its nothing but TRUMP this TRUMP that.

I don't know whats going on, but this site and numerous others have changed drastically, at least for me they did.

Does anyone else feel this way?

No....but it sounds like you avoid the dozens of forums...and just open and look?

Bookmark UFOs....or paranormal. Don't judge a site by it's opening couple pages. You don't have even read any political threads if you don't want to!

I wonder how many open, scan down the top, recent, live etc...and think it's all we're about??!

Peace!*

*PS....at different times it was all 911, and 2012...different times, different head-pages...but open and into the forums, you'll find things are the same inside!!

No i don't avoid them, i still check them out.

My point is MAJORITY of the new topics being posted on a Conspiracy website is about Politics now. At least that's my opinion.

For crying outloud just go on the front page its nothing about Politics, 3-4 years ago, there was never this much Politics on this website.

Or look at the NEW topics being made, its majority Politics, in the past it was never this Politics heavy

Enjoy a distraction. Also a long time lurker (2013). I decided to make a difference and not get involved in the political stuff here, so I joined today. This is pretty cool.

Ancient Babylonian Reborn After Having Been Silenced for 2000 Years


Almost 2,000 years after falling out of use, a Cambridge University linguistics specialist, Dr. Martin Worthington has learned how to speak ancient Babylonian and is not only campaigning to revive it as a spoken communication form, but has made a film in the ancient language. The main funders of the film directed by Dr. Worthington, a fellow of St John’s College, were the Philological Society and the Thriplow Charitable Trust, Cambridge University, and several Cambridge Colleges, enabling students to produce the world’s first film in ancient Babylonian. According to an article in The Telegraph, the student actors “dramatized a folk tale from a clay tablet from 701 BC entitled ‘The Poor Man of Nippur.’”



A Daily Mail article details how scientists “created a unique archive of recordings from different readers of stories and scripts from Babylon and set up an annual conference for sixth-former s interested in studying ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt.” Dr. Worthington’s recorded readings of Babylonian poems and myths in the original tongue are available online at: www.soas.ac.uk... And where many academics and filmmakers are often driven by ego, seeking acknowledgement and accreditation, Dr. Worthington’s goals are exemplary in that he pioneered spoken Babylonian because he believes “it enables students to enjoy the magic of authenticity and connect through words to a world that is lost and far away.” And you cannot but respect that attitude, for it is in finding innovative teaching methods and bringing otherwise gray curriculum alive that defines greatness in the field of education.

Did you ever interest yourself in the NWO or agenda 21 threads athat were so prevelant. Many believe it is kinda of at a pivotal moment of playing out or being sussed out, and there is nothing more conspiratorial than politics. It's literally a fascade that is extremely entrenched in your ability to pursue your interest or not.

Yes, the NWO conspiracies were Nice, never heard of the Agenda 21 tho, or at least i dont think i did.

But i did just learn of a new conspiracy i found out on YouTube, Called the Last Thursday conspiracy which was nice

and yes i understand Politics and Conspiracies go together, but im talking about this website is now mostly about Politics and not Conspiracies, my opinion

The site has become a news dissemination site which I applaud, it also has almost any type of forum for posters to generate content so should they choose. Politics happens to be dominating the news. Besides if we're being honest most of the best conspiracies have been played out, no much new info on old cases, too many hoaxes and cgi to trust the new.

You're right. There should be a single NEW thread spot to drop all the political threads in. That way they'd still be in the NEW THREAD section....and other threads would return to the diversity it used to have.

"LITERALLY everything on this site" is an overstatement.
You know there is a non-conspiracy side to this site?
Other threads are still being published.

Hey, look 2 or 3 posts above this one and you will find an in depth discussion about the physics of peeing in a toilet bowl. That one should have a profound impact on expanding your knowledge of various important topics. I know it did for me.

Mercy! Maybe it's time to move on.
