This is a general call out to all members... I would like to know if anyone can help me fill the spots in what I would like to call an ATS dreamteam.
Basicaly this would be a collection of members who have expertise in the following fields.

Astrophysics
Chemistry
Digital imaging and related subjects
Psychology
Religion
Biology
Forensics

Now , Im just a guy myself right ? But wouldnt it be grand if we could get some definitive answers from this site, as well as great debate? If we had a elite group like this to examine the thorniest and most heavily contested of threads then it would make certain things a little more interesting ! It would also make the debates previous to such prestigious analysis more considered (theres nothing like knowing the right answer is comming , to make you stow your most ridiculous thinking).
So what do we think about this ?

I would like to humbly suggest you also include a couple of non linear thinkers. I think a think tank would also need a free form thinker. You'd be surprised how much they actually help. If you want a dream team, consider this.

Can I suggest another category? Research and Investigation -- Someone good at crossing every reference, and digging to the very bottom.

Good idea, and it has been considered before I am sure. But believe it or not there are already quite a few members on here that meet one or more of those criteria (and then some). Some are FSMEs, some are mods, some are neither. ATS is full of great and educated thinkers, that is what makes this site second to none,

uhhh, for my .02 cents this is something I think would result in valuable materials to be looked closer into. I am unable to recall dreams, but would love to have somewhere to look at people's who can, and do.

Not sure I have anything else to say at this point, but, go team! Sounds like a good one to me! Thanks for sharing your idea about it!

I would be willing to be part of the religion group, the software engineering group, video analysis/CGI analysis group, the forensics group, and the general analytical lateral-thinking group.

This is a most excellent point! In the field of chemistry alone there are countless sub-fields, including; Analytical Chemistry, Astrochemistry, Biochemistry, Chemical engineering, Chromatography, Crystallography, Electrochemistry and Geochemistry to name just a few.

There has been such a reliance on specialists in today's modern world that it has become problematic. Indeed, ask a tax lawyer pertinent questions about who is subject to and liable for the income tax and if you are able to show him that there is no specific section of the code that makes it clear it will only be a matter of time before that tax lawyer recommends a criminal defense attorney. Ask a criminal defense attorney the same questions and without a doubt he will refer you to a tax attorney.

Non linear thinking is essential in getting closer towards any truth. You can have five highly specialized mechanics poking through your Jaguar that has stopped running on the road, and it is very possible not a single one of those mechanics will bother to check the gas tank to make sure there is enough gas in it. Great point, Seiko.

Duly noted, and thanks to everyone who replied on this. Im hoping this idea will snowball and that we will end up with such a group (or groups) acting together to sort the wheat from the chaff with regards to the authenticity of some threads, and to provide keen realistic insights to the more valuable content on the site. I think this would improve the quality of information sharing, and the over all quality of the discussions here on ATS. If members replying wish to form such a team, dont wait, just form up and get stuck in you guys ! If you fancy it , why not leave a note here with a member list so that posters and potential content providers can contact you for pre post verification of thier investigations , pictoral evidence, and so on?

There are a couple underutilized places on ATS where something like this could be started:

The Research Forum, as I understand it, is a place for people who are interested in collecting and analyzing information about specific topics to start ongoing threads for just this purpose. You have to have a "scholar" title to post in there -- information about getting one is in this post by ADVISOR. The big advantage to this is that the requirement to u2u for posting privileges helps make sure only those members who are interested in genuine contribution and research will participate -- it helps keep threads clean while still making sure that you can have a variety of viewpoints expressed.

A lot of forums have stickied threads up top authored by an FSME that are a good place to start.

If you're looking specifically for a debate, there is the Debate Forum. The standard format is five posts per side, with 24-hour deadlines between posts, judged by an anonymous panel of judges. Again, you have to have a title (fighter in this case) to post in the forum, and only Debate Forum mods can author threads in there. This works well for collecting and presenting both sides of a topic, less well for open-ended research. But the standard format doesn't have to be used for challenge matches -- you can u2u with a potential opponent and debate forum mod to work out a format that would be most useful to you

I have to say, I think this idea would further the already disturbing habit of younger members to partake in 'personality cultism' that is present on ATS.

E.G. certain members have many sycophantic followers (wanted & unwanted) that follow them. Nothing wrong with having a fanbase, but when these 'certain' people are just plain wrong and their opposition is shouted down by sycophantic fanatics, it gets a little annoying.

I agree with the idea in principle, but as ever, beware the EGO's on ATS.

Parallex.

    yea, after pondering, it's about those jack of all trades, master of none types you gotta worry about! Something about bridges and Do Lung(sp?)!
    genius fine up and to a point, but who'll specifically stop this, and officially ask ~-~ will there be any girls?
