Firstly, as the subject states, the following is not a rant but rather my observation of some of the topics that have been posted on here since I
first discovered this board a few weeks ago.
About myself: recently left the military after 12 years service. For the initial 4 years I served on Polaris nuclear submarines - in a tactical
capacity based in the control room. I was cleared to well above Top Secret for that job.
After that period I transferred to the Air branch and graduated and served for the remaining years as an Air Traffic Control officer therefore if
anyone feels like flaming me for my comments please bear in mind that I have had far more access to privileged information and in the right
environment than many have on here.
So......... do I know anything? Yes. Do cover ups happen? Yes. I was involved in one whilst on deterrent patrol. To this day I don't know the full
story but that's all I'm going into.
As an air traffic guy serving on ships all over the world did I ever see anything strange? Absolutely - all the time. So often in fact I thought
nothing of it. Mostly just on the screen though - only once by naked eye - that was my first experience and which got me interested in UFO's etc. but
not to the extent of what I would call being nuts on the subject which is prevalent of the many posts on this board.
I truly believe there are many people like me here on ATS, sane, intelligent, reasonable and logical minded. If I see a picture of Martian terrain,
try as I might I can't see an old lady watering her petunias in it. I fail to believe that an alien race would call themselves the Federation of
Light! C'mon - the federation! And they speak - 'In 10 of your earth days' just as in the 50's B movie flying saucer epics - and people on here
fall for it.
A guy claims he is a time traveller and clearly gives a picture of a Lego toy as proof of his time machine and still he gets pages and pages of folk
asking him to prove himself!
This people is what puts me off coming on here. It really does look like, to a new visitor like me that ATS is full of sad weirdo’s, a vent for
idiots, kids with little imagination and slightly deranged people with too much imagination who could look at a Pepsi can and dream up a cover up or
conspiracy about it.
I'm now in a boring job and come on here to see if there are any interesting topics of which there are a few thank goodness. I personally would like
a new forum called 'Away with the Fairies' where all these other posters can go and I can stay away from.
Oh well, I only have to wait until the 14th apparently until I will be embraced in love by the federation so I won't need money so I can give up my
Until then I may just as well start channelling and selling books via paypal!
