(Sorry to everyone who's already posted in this topic, slight hiccup with my account, and I had to re-post this.)

Hello to everyone at ATS. It's a pleasure to be here with you all. It's a wonderful site. I have been lurking for some weeks, but finally decided to sign up today, as I can't keep my mouth shut any longer.


It has taken me a long time to get here, but it was pretty inevitable that I would start posting at a place like this sooner or later.

My journey has been a long one, it all started some time around the late 90's when I first read Fingerprints of the gods by Graham Hancock, leant to me by my cousin. Some years later, someone on a Star Trek forum recommended The 12th planet by Zecharia Sitchin... pretty amazing stuff. I mentioned it to the cousin who had initially recommended Fingerprints of the gods and started this ball rolling in that direction, only to be accused of "blasphemy". What an absolutely curious reaction. I had mentioned it only as an interesting theory, not a fact, apparently even mention of such things is abhorrent to some people. Since then, I've kept my thoughts to myself, for fear of upsetting friends and family's chore believes. This site should provide a much needed outlet.


I think it's important to mention I don't simply swallow everything I read without question, and take most things with a large grain of salt. My drive is probably that I've always gotten a tremendous kick out of contemplating the strange. I have been a sci-fi and space fanatic since childhood. I do think this whole area of alternative history, alternative archeology, forbidden science, etc, are easily the most fascinating and riveting subjects I've ever come across. I think it's so exciting to think of all the things out there we may not be privy to. Life really is as Shakespeare would have it: "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

Where am I at now? Finally, I stumbled across the massive body of work by Project Camelot - which has completely blown my mind, and makes even Sitchin's stuff look tame. I don't know what to make of them, they and their guests are just so out there... I am nevertheless fascinated. I've almost completed their entire archive of interviews, just a couple or so left.

So, here I am, a relative newbie to alternative thinking, conspiracy theories, and the like, but I have a feeling I'm going to become a fixture here.

Very embarrassing. I guess I was a little to eager to sign up.


I admire your restraint in not pointing it out the first time around.

Thanks for the wise words Jimmyx. Logic and reason are good words to live by. A lot of stuff to potentially get lost in if you don't sift very carefully.

^ Oh, that is brilliant!


I did have to pause to think about some of those, but they eventually came to me... you've put me to shame, I've only ever lived as far north (or any other direction for that matter) as zone two. So, I'm a bit of a fraud. I am an immigrant though - that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Thank you, redoubt.

This is the kind of site I've been looking for since I first got online in 1997. It's a wonder I have found it before.
