This is not a personal attack, btw, so please don't take it as such, but with all due respect to you as a relatively new member, why the fascination
with the end of the world? Shouldn't the question be asked instead how we cansave
what we've got?
Do you not feel even in the slightest bit uncomfortable with the ease in which you state that, in your opinion, we've only got a hundred years left?
To be honest, it was kind of scary.
There have been several threads started recently that postulate what the next terrorist atrocity will be, how World War 3 will begin etc. Negativity
on these pages, and I just can't understand the appeal. Yes, we're here to read about the NWO, the reptillian agenda and the survival
of Fascism in the most unlikely of guises and all associated conspiracies, so in a sense we are ondoctrinating ourselves into a bleak mind frame. But
of these theories have ever been proven, and as such remain the subject of speculation. To just up and say it's all gonna be over in the
space of one life-time is taking this austere attitude a little too far.
I really don't think this type of thread pays any homage to the spirit of ATS, which, IMO, is a forward looking, pro-active, personal research
orientated meeting of like-minded individuals. We hypothesize about our history, our world the universe and beyond, and when we're not doing that, we
consider the weird. It's mind stretching, it's educational and it's positive.
I don't want to even begin
to consider how the sum total of how we got to be here, in this world that we inhabit and love for all its faults,
will end up as dust. I want to know how we can continue and grow.
Sorry if this offends, but I'm entitled to my opinion.
