I am a young man with many experiences around the planet. I grew up in a Christian home, the son of missionaries. I grew up in the sin city of the world, Amsterdam, the Netherlands and then moved to the U.S. at the age of 8 (first Hawaii, then Colorado). Once I was old enough I travelled a little, myself, around China and Hong Kong for a year. Then I got a job in Alaska for some time until finally settling on the east coast for now. Though I was raised in the church and became involved in the church, I myself am not a Christian anymore. I lost faith in the Christian religion once I began studying it for myself. The more I read the Bible, the more questions and doubts I had. The more I researched it, the less I believed it. Now I think it has some great morals to learn, but overall I think it is a very limiting and self-destructive religion.

I believe there must be a higher being, but who or what this, I am not entirely sure, whether it is extra terrestrial or supernatural.

I believe in extraterrestrials, I believe the U.S. government had a part in 9/11 (probably also in many other events in history), and I believe money is the bane of mankind.

Thank you for your time.

Welcome to the alternate thinkers.


It's my understanding that the bible does have some messages about the supernatural in some form. There's also the possible links to aliens as gods, fallen angels etc. So, I think there are some half truths and misinterpretions, along with alleged disinformation by certain groups as well.

It's been my thought for a long time, that organized religion is in many ways just another business. People shouldn't give up their spirituality or give up on the good in the supernatural either, just because of some hypocrites and or demonic behaviors.

I'm not a bible thumper, but I wouldn't throw it on the fire either.
