Actually going to the Greys planet does seem a bit far fetched but sooner or later someone will go Im sure, or maybe they have but fear ridicule.
This is how I would like all new posters to be treated, because after a while if your not telling the truth it does become very very obviouse.
If people cant reveal alien activity without being pulled apart on ATS where can they reveal this very important information?

Must there be? Perhaps yes... but the scenario was very "out there". "I've seen" or "Ive been visited by" aliens seems far more likely and less detached from reality than does "The aliens chose to speak to me of all people and instead of sticking around to spread the information that they've given me they've decided to remove me to another planet. Just me, because I asked nicely"
I'm willing to keep an open mind... but c'mon now.
Is it true or false? I don't know? Does it seem likely? No.
I have made final arrangements, months of planning and debating and a species of Greys have finally accepted. I will taken to a planet, far away in another solar system, habitable with oxygen and h20, among various animal species like none you or I have ever seen before. It will take approximately 23 days and 13 hours for arrival, and I will go through my journey in suspended animation. I am, however, not the first human being to be taken to permanently stay on another planet, but I am one of the first. Tonight I will spend quite sometime watching, and waiting before the stars for my ride to arrive.

Why did religion simply tell us how similar it is, and that it has strange animals? Northern Siberia has air and water and indigenous fauna, but I wouldn't want to go there. This lack of substance, to my cynical mind, just speaks of a lack of imagination from someone wanting to impress. If you were suitably level-headed, balanced psychologically, physically capable and willing to leave all you knew and understood to live on an alien world, wouldn't there even be a hint of excitement in his post? Read accounts of the Apollo astronauts for inspirational accounts of real space voyagers. You can feel their wonder and enthusiasm. And their professionalism. This does not happen when you read religion's post.
If I were the Greys after reading it, I would reconsider my decision.
I reserve the right to be wrong about the subject of this thread, but maintain that I'm not until religion decides to make a return visit and brings photos with him.

Let's assume for this arguement that religion is hoaxing. If this is the case, then he made a mistake in that he made no real effort to convince. This in itsself is a critical oversight, as this site encourages free thinking, unfortunately in all of its manifestations. There have been countless fake claims made on these boards, some of them ongoing and really quite convincing. To simply state that he had contacted Greys, had been offered a placing off-world and was awaiting his ride does nothing to persuade ATS's predominatley cynical membership. Sometimes less is more, but not in this case.
And it was this lack of detail in religion's post alone roused suspicion and the inevitable backlash, and he should have known that. I have no sympathy for hoaxers when their lies are uncovered through their own failings.
If we then view another possibility that he is suffering under a delusion, and completely believed his claims to be true, then his treatment was unfair. But not to be unexpected. This is difficult to explain in terms that don't seem unkind but, in simple, no nonsense terms, we are not here to listen to the misconceptions of psychological confusion and emotional frailty.
This is not a self-help site. It's a conspiracy site.
The majority of members will have immense sympathy for other ATSers who are suffering under similar problems. Many members openly state that they have experienced emotional problems; I've done it myself. But many will not be able, or be willing to pass up the opportunity to rubbish outlandish declarations no matter what the poster's provenance. Such is the human condition. Some folks like easy targets as they can't cope with hardened ones.
The last option is that religion was telling the truth. My main reservation with this hypothesis is this: if you were a suitable candidate for solar emigration, you would be of a certain type of person. You would at least have to be capable, self-sufficient, hardy and fiercely intelligent and acomplished in communicating your needs, hopes and beliefs. Hopefully, exploration, or the craving for exploration, would be the driving force in your life.
I realise it's near impossible to fathom the minds and reasoning of creatures that were not only not born on this planet, but whose cultures would be unrecognisable to us, but isn't it realistic to assume that they wouldn't take someone who may be incapable or unable to adapt to an environment and lifestyle that is beyond foreign? Why would they want to nanny their guest?
If religion was telling the truth, then I sincerely hope he can forgive all those who doubted. But we can't be blamed.
