Here we go again.
A couple questions first.
1) What can we (3 Amigos; Simon, Springer, and myself) do to convince people there is no government involvement in the operations of ATS?
2) If we're able to accomplish #1, how long will it last if it is believed?
3) Why does this keep coming up? Place yourself in our shoes for a moment... three semi-idealists managing a large and time-consuming discussion board as a hobby side-venture keep getting accusations of having unethical ulterior motives.
4) You've only been a member for a few days, how can you come to this conclusion about our multi-year involvement in ATS?

Ok, now I'm having a bad feeling about ATS...
Somebody posted an article about a study that links the Pro-Israel Lobby with American Foreign Policy. That thread lasted 7 minutes before the original post became invisible. Then a further two minutes before the thread was sent to the Trash Bin.
Why is that? Is there a Pro-Israel lobby on ATS as well?

I have asked once, twice, now I will ask one more time. Would you please be so kind as to delete this thread, overlord..simon, springer...the SSS...* Or any other moderator. please.... so that I do not come across as crazy...
This is one of the funnier posts I've read! Omg and the staff just let this baby fly like dirty underwear on a clothes line. I swear this is a reason I dont like to initiate a thread, just think you had a bad day/week and after a few drinks write a thread like this one and it gets so many hits and stays there, just flying!

All I have to say is that balance requires both believers and non-believers.
I personally don't pay in to many of the conspiracies on the site, but I am open-minded to the possibility of such things existing. A NWO is something that is feasible if many things connect, but as for it controlling events, I just don't think so, I mean, we do still have that human 'randomness' to give them a pain in the neck, right?

Converted to what? An ATS supporter? I don't think any of the reservations she shared had anything to do with supporting the site. Maybe she was a supporter of the site all along and her concern was with the ends the means the site provides were being devoted to. I don't know. That's why I just quoted some of what I felt was relevant scripture, and I'm leaving the interpretation up to each member as an individual.
The quote about the prophet being ignored in his own country is particularly relevant to me.
I have a question for you, if I may. Do you believe the Creator and the Almighty are one and the same, or two separate entities?
In the Greek numerical system the symbol S is called the sigma, and was originally the sixth letter of the Greek alphabet. It was also represented as the number six.
The number 666 was written in serpentine letters like SSS, VVV, ZZZ = 666. They also arranged the letters different ways; sometimes they would turn them upside down or sideways. The SSS sometimes could be seen with a line drawn through the middle of all three S's and turned sideways. This is the origin of the popular amulet called the Oriental cross.
