Hi there, (my first post! Yay!)
So...I have always wondered why I have been interested in paranormal phenomenon, and more attuned to events that are beyond the general belief of the public...or to put it another way, my ideas of this planet, and our existence dont necessarily fit with the conventional social norms that exist.
My twin sister is the same way too, we both have very keen interests in pretty much all topics covered that are covered on ATS. Wheras most of my family and friends, really have no interest in it...sure they might believe in aliens or that 9/11 could have been staged...but they don't have the same type of enthusiasm or ambition to investigate further.
I find there are people who question everything and there are people who blindly accept...I do think that the majority of the people on ATS fall in the first category...people who question everything...but what makes that so? How come we are the ones finding ourselves consumed with wanting to know more?
Why is that people like you and I are considered cooky, or off-balance, if we even entertain the though of ET or OOBE's?
So are we special? Are we the group of people who are "enlightened?"
