ATS is the best site I have found in ages. I love how this site is so filled with ideas and opinions from all over the world.

I would love to know how you came to ATS. was it the politics, a UFO you saw? 9/11 discussion? NWO?
How did you find this wonderful site and what was it that kept you here?

So here are my questions...

1. How did you find ATS?

2. What brought you here to start with?

3. Are you still active in the original topic that brought you here in the first place.

So I will start..

1. How did you find ATS?
I believe it was while I was google searching the Isaac Caret stories, I kept getting links to ATS.

2. What brought you here to start with?
I got sucked into the Isaac Caret drone episode. I was in awe at how ATS members proved that they deny ignorance and showed with graphs, and deep discussion to break this phony down. The level of insight on that tread was amazing and I was hooked.

3. Are you still active in the original topic that brought you here in the first place.
When I can find a good story, but lately I have been more involved in the political forums. I thank ATS for sparking more of a political interest in me, an I feel ATS has helped me to get more involved and educate myself on this important even in America.

So going forward, i really look forward to hearing from you guys.

About 15 months ago, I had a massive realization that time did not exist. I googled time does not exist and the first link that popped up was the "Time Doesn't Exist" thread in the science forum.

I read and re-read that thread as at the time I was truly blown away that other people thought the way I did. The conversation in that thread was amazing. So many posters had so many points that covered all parts of the spectrum. The points were well articulated as well.

I never joined that discussion but lurked for quite a while before I decided to start posting. Since, I have absorbed much from the site and its members. As times goes here, I feel there is less to absorb and more digging to do to find new material. When you find the diamond in the rough, it is well worth it.

IMO this is one of the best training grounds for your mind on the net though I feel many people are too caught up in their own paradigm to use it that way.

I cant even remember. I think someone on another site had a link to it is how I came. I was always looking for better sites to add to my favorites so I'd have more site traveling I could do.

that is so great that you found like minded people here. I agree with you that sometimes you have to dig to find that gem that really strikes interest, but when you do, It may save sanity.

Thank you for posting and sharing.

Are you a Marketing Major....

Are your trying to start your own website?


What is so attractive is that the topics spark the imagination and stimulate brain activity. This is why some members become addicted.

It is not so much one topic, but many of them that take you to depths of the world around us. For me, it was NWO, but I have interest in all the topics.

I found the website by Googling a topic.

I always think I will site travel to see other opinions, but then I find more and more here to fill that time and next thing I know the sun is coming up and I forgot to sleep...

I remember doing a search for info on Ufo's and clicked on one and it led me to BTS which I found interesting. Then I saw join ATS to get the real information about all sorts of things. I was interested enough to join and it opened up a whole new realm for me. Endless amounts of information...some bad and some good...more good than bad though. This site in my opinion is far above all other sites in this genre.Been here for 2 years now.

Hahah, No '___' i am neither, I just love to see how the other person thinks and what makes them tick, its a big big world and i'm fascinated by the diversity of views and opinions.

I just find ATS a sort of safe haven for a lot of like mindedness and I love how its a magnet for people to come together and not feel out of place for discussing experiences, or thoughts that are otherwise seen as a reason to put one in the funny farm for speaking out.

I like this question. For me, I've always been interested in things like, bigfoot, loch ness monster, ghosts, ufo's/aliens....I'd always search google to find more stories and information on things of this nature. I stumbled upon ATS lots of times in my searches and realized that I usualy liked what I read here. And it looked like a lot of fun to post thoughts with others. I'd never joined any sort of chat site before this and now, it's my favorite hobby. ATS rocks!

S&F for you. Be well.

I've had many personal paranormal and ufo type experiences and I was looking into the subject of Dorothy Izatt and landed here. I like the OP have found this political outlet recently so lately that is usually where you can find me, however, I really am a searcher for all "truths." And I am excited about the recent wave of ufo sightings.

I found that using the search button brings up tons and tons of subjects that have been discussed here that I would never have thought. ATS is such a goldmine of information going back years.

Maybe we can start life on jupiter or saturn where the days are longer and then we can have more reading time to spend on ATS.

thank you for sharing.

I agree Sheila947. There's a lot of over-the-top stuff that I just skip or roll my eyes at. But there is also tons of threads that grab me, whether I thought I really had interest in the topic or not. Just yesterday, I learned on a thread that Stonehenge is very much reconstructed just 80 years ago and not at all in the same shape it was for thousands of years.

My first thread was about peoples strangest experiences and it still collects new and amazing stories all the time. I love that thread. Ever since then, I've been a hardened and steadfast ATS'er. The fact that piles of actual news stories are on here too, makes the site even more usefull and interesting to me. Cheers.

I was brought here following WilliamOneSac's plight on Mauntauk and the Camp Hero stories. Unfortunately, I know he isn't well but still a member here one and the same.

I want to thank William for turning me on to this site and all it has to offer...Please get well hon, you are in my thoughts.

I guess the easiest way for me to answer that question would be to point you to my introduction thread.

Ironically it is titled "What drew me to ATS"

posted on Sep, 11 2008 @ 02:33 PM
It's kinda funny...I'm OBSESSED with sites like this...but I just so happened to stumble upon this site searching google for..........Transformer movie info lol...I saw a link about drones being found and possibly being related to that movie. Being the nosy person that I am, I looked..and haven't looked back since.

I too was referred to ATS via a link.

Could not believe the passion of the people here.

The search for answers intrigues me.

Not a better place to be, or to be part of.

I saw all the wealth of information that was here and whether it was true or false it was here and I could make my own decision with it. I enjoy the opinions of so many members here and I get to know them even though it's cyber. ATS has members from every country in here or at least most of the countries and it's nice to know how they feel about life and the wonders of it. UFOs have always intrigued me so that drew me to ATS the most. Just an all around cool place to come and relax and use my mind.
The staff here is incredible and I've learned so much from them and the members. I like the fact that I don't read every other sentence with F words and other bad language I see else where.

Yep the best forum on the net, and i like it also. Do not read the threads as mush as i used too, as you get to know which ones to read etc...

Came here first looking for alien stuff i think, or the montauk story.

posted on Sep, 11 2008 @ 03:46 PM
OP, a relative emailed pictures and some basic information about "Chad's Drone". Googling for more information hit upon the ATS forum on the subject.

I thought it was cool that there was a busy thread on the matter, but even better that it was moderated.

I'm no longer interested in the topic of Chad's Drone, as it's just a silly hoax.

I remember I just stumbled across it, looking for any sort of conspiracy/nwo sort of material. I might have been searching for David Icke stuff, since I've read a few of his books. Might have been Bill Cooper too. Anyway, I guess you could say NWO stuff is what brought me here, and yes, that is still a key area of interest for me, especially since there are all sorts of subtopics that play into it. Everything from 9/11 to UFO's to economics and politics to history, etc.
