Hello everyone.

I have been lurking about these boards for the past 5 years now, but never really created a real account. I had an account a few years ago that I created to respond to some threads and start a few myself, but it kind of died out during a period of my life where I didn't have much time to be active on forums.

I rearly have time to sit hours on a discussion boards now days either, like I did back in the days, but I have witnessed how this place has evolved and grown the past years and I guess I just felt like being a part of it. Join in on some discussions and maybe start a few myself if I feel I have something to contribute with.

I have been part of (or have been lurking) numerous discussion boards throughout the years, conspiracy and non-conspiracy ones, and ATS is clearly the one that holds the most potential knowledge in my oppinion. There are a lot of interesting topics here...Almost too many. And there are incredible amounts of intelligent and knowledgeble members of this community, contributing to what I believe to be the most interesting website on the internet (I have surfed conspiracy topics and alike on the internet since 1997 and have never stumbled on to something quite as interesting and great as these forums).

Well.. enough about ATS. A bit about myself maybe...

I'm a 22 years old guy from Norway. Have been into UFO's and the paranormal since I was a little boy. The interest was kept alive mainly by X Files back in the days. I stubled onto this board around 2001 I believe, while doing a search for websites or documents containing theories on links between old civilizations (primarily Ancient Egypt) and UFO's/Extraterrestrials. I believe this was after a particularly interesting program about this on Discovery Channel (Have anyone seen this? Remember what the name of the program was?).

My main interests are Ancient and Lost civilizations (the myth of Atlantis always fascinated me), Cryptozology, Extraterrestrial Life, Secret Societies (mostly after reading through threads on ATS) and Conspiracy in religion. I have always had an interest in conspiracy in politics also, but politics has been such a big part of my life (also a destructive one i'm sorry to say) the last 5 years that I rarely engage in political discussions in communities like these. I don't think anything has the potential to create more negative atmosphere than heated political discussion. Political discussion is a good thing, of course, but politics was not my reason to join this forum, and it has little to do with my interest in conspiracy related topics.

Politically I find myself in the economical left, social libertarian quadrate of the political and economical map, meaning that I am an non-authoritarian socialist. I have been leaning towards anarchism (philosophical and Politically understood, meaning horizontal and libertarian organization and governing on equal footing without rulers, not lawlessness and authoritarian chaos like anarchism often is confused with) since I was 17, feeling as much political distance to communism as capitalism. I have never been organized in party politics, but has been active in the anti-fascist movement since I was a teenager, campaigning against the now as-good-as-dead Norwegian Neo-Nazi scene.

Most my friends are political right wing, or advocates of authoritarian or representative rule Politically (left or right). So I get my share of political debate on an everyday basis. I usually go very well with people who don't share my political views, and I hate to get hostile when it comes to politics, even though I realize it's perfectly normal, so I don't think I will regret flagging myself as an anarchist bastard on a forum where I know there are quite a few right wingers, hehe.

Religiously i'm leaning mostly towards christianity maybe, by reason of my respect for god, meaning that I would never deny her/him or utter real blasphemy against god. This is simply because I don't know. I have acepted the fact that I might never know. So, i'm not christian, but I respect christianity and believe [the] faith itself to be a good thing. I guess i'm an agnostic of some sort. This goes for all relegions of course... I respect them all and don't favour one over another really. I grew up in a christian country though, and know more about christianity than other relegions. I have always lvoed christian mythology and Paradise Lost is among my favourite reads.

Other than that, I love reading. I'm mostly into fantasy and sci-fi and love RPG's, both computer based and pen and paper. My favorite author is JRR Tolkien, who I have loved since I was 14 years old, and my favorite book is The Silmarillion by the same author (though edited and published by his son). I'm also into music. I did vocals in a crappy black metal band when I was 17/18, but mostly listens to music now days, or play some improvised piano or harmonica. I listen to everything from metal, to rock, to hard trance, to prog, to jazz and hip hop.

Well.. that's about the basics, and probably what you will ever know about who I am, except for what you can extract from my possible participation on the discussions on ATS.

Welcome me_ofef_seraph, 5 years is a long time to lurk! I guess you must have a pretty good notion of how things go around here then. Throughout reading your post I noticed we have a lot of things in common so welcome aboard and I look forward to seeing you around.

Thanks for the welcome, SpittinCobra and Liquidos!

Yeah. I know my way around the boards, hehe. There has been a lot of change to the member center since the last time I was registerd, but I don't think I will be needing any guidence. I haven't really lurked every single day for the past five years... It's more like I have checked the forums every now and then, for interesting news and discussions, and then more frequent in periods. I found it five years ago, and then I have returned here quite often since then. The last year I have been on maybe once a month to find some interesting read. I guess something inspired me to register now.

I have a lot of contributing to do If I want to make up for all the great knowledge I have extracted from ATS, hehe.

Greetings,

Let me welcome you into the commonality known as ATS. It is with great amusement that I christen you an ATS'er after such an extensive time on the banks peering into the watercourse so to speak.

I only hope that we, as a community, can live up to the great expectations placed upon us, and every other tenderfoot constituent, that sets mouse and cursor upon the pilgrimage to "contradict unenlightenment" (DENY IGNORANCE).

With that I bid Godspeed to you and yours ATS. May we encounter one another again my friend in
benevolent banter as we deliberate conspiracy topics!

Thank you, sire, for this most amusing welcome. I feel the warmth of this community already.


And thanks for the welcome and the very useful link compilation, Mithful Me. Zedd's handbook is very nice.
