I've been here for a few weeks but never even saw this introductory place, so I might as well waste everyone's time with my background of beliefs.

First of all, I'm a selective skeptic. That means I pretty much choose what I want to believe, in whatever field. I remain skeptical in that I like to experience things for myself, or at the very least see the sources of whoever's telling me to believe something so I can make some kind of judgement as to whether I would like to believe the same thing...

Secondly, I'm highly volatile in my interests. One month I'm all about pre-Columbian cultures, the next I'm researching pirates, some weeks later I've switched to ancient Near Eastern mythology, then suddenly I fancy the Vikings only to go back to the Incans et al, and then I suddenly take a turn into the wilderness of UFOlogy.

Thankfully, this seems to be a place of very wide interests: aliens, conspiracies, strange animals, ancient cultures, etc. Very much to my liking and tons of stuff to keep me occupied from now 'til Mayan Doomsday.

Anyone else out there with similar "divided loyalties" or am I alone?

Thanks for the intro ochre. You sound like a friend of mine. Every month it is something different with him.

I'm humbled...

Two distinguished mods and at least two illustrious Canadians pop by just to say hullo & welcome. And me not even soliciting replies, just thought I'd give a declaration of content, or something. (So that when you see an entry from ochre [which, by the way, is a "hilarious" word play], you'd perhaps get a grip on the source's background.)

Thanks for the nice greetings, everyone. But check my opening statement: I may require proof before I believe you... (Sorry, felt a little contradictory before I've had my fourth cup of coffee. Ignore at once.)

(Since I don't feel comfortable spamming up the boards or, in a place like this, trawling [sic!] for points, perhaps the thread could be done away with if/when/once you mods feel it's filled its introductory purpose.)
