It's disturbing that people would discourage today's youth from questioning "authority", imo....

Our schools are obviously failing their indoctrination agenda if even young ones are starting to wonder if reality is as they've been told.

I would much rather the teenagers today to seek truth, than to get caught up in drugs and fear mongering from the media.


One need not be a complete oblivious slave, to contribute meaningfully to society.

I do not discourage intelligent questioning of authority, I do discourage a very young person from making themselves vulnerable to the lunatic ideas of a percentage of disturbed and in some cases, deranged adults and their grand delusions that cloud their judgement and distort their veiw of reality on this website and others like it.
I strongly encourage Tamiica to think for herself and to carefully think about the ideas here and make intelligent and informed judgements, not to simply decide this idea or that one seems to make sense so must be fact.

Welcome to ATS.

Your age is almost of no concern to me. I've met people much older than you that had no sense at all.

Let us know when you realize how much you don't know. I'm 63 so I probably will be on a heavenly plain by then because it takes many years to figure out what's really going on.

I wish you a happy, healthy and interesting life.

Have fun.

Well, I'm glad that you are aware. I congratulate you. However, that "relieved" feeling that you say that you feel when disperse over time.

I was much the same.I was 13-14 years old and I knew much more about the world around me than my peers did. However, by the time I reached 16-17, I began to feel isolated. I was a stranger in an even stranger land.

If it's knowledge you want, then by all means, pursue it. Just pursue it with the foreknowledge that it comes at a cost. You can choose truth or happiness in life. Never both.

What nonsense you miserable sadsack, happiness is a state of mind, it depends on attitude, it comes from within, from a persons desire to be so, not from any outside influence.
This is the kind of idea Ive just warned Tamiica about.
Jesus on a stick man, you'll have the kid suicidal in no time with that kind of attitude. A kids life today is difficult enough without filling their heads full of despair.
Let her be happy.

Probably best if I leave my phonetic joke on 'Happiness' out of this thread then?


I would listen to wayaboveitall tamiica, this is a fun place to be - but not everyone here tells 'the truth' or even their perception of 'the truth'.

Be mindful of what you believe and try to research it yourself (from reputable sources) if it takes to your interests.

See you on the boards!

Hm... I was... 16? 15? When I joined this site. I was here for a few months, then like with all forums, I left it for basically 6 years. Now I'm here again and will vanish in another couple of months...

Anyway, don't listen to wayaboveitall. You should be doing what you want to be doing and interested in what you want to be interested in. Just try not to let the craziest convince you ~.^

And I'm sorry to say, the government isn't collapsing... Only the U.S.'s status as a superpower. the government will collapse later, but that's subsequent to the nation kind of becoming... Another thing altogether.

My point being that Tamiica may not be able to determin 'the craziest' from any others. Hence my advising her to think for herself, not be persuaded or brainwashed by ANYONE.
There will be plenty of weirdos on this website who will want to
convert/recruit her to their thinking, especially because she is young.
As a parent it disturbs me that such young people are on such a website at all.
99% of all veiws here, regardless of topic come down to peoples choosing to beleive alone, not based on any real evidence or proof. Most people here just want to be part of something and randomly adopt various ideas which SEEM to make sense, and never go further than that, yet argue till they turn blue in favour of their chosen beleifs, without having ever really
investigated the claims for themselves, rather accepted the claims of others.
Hence its not an enviroment conductive to the young, healthy and enquiring mind.

Well, apparently you must have some "draw" to it or you wouldn't be posting here. Now would you? Really..... You sound rather hypocritical to me. Just an observation.

Yes indeed, Im interested in unexplained phenomena among other things.
Look up my posts, read for yourself, you decide.
Fortunately im old enough to have a very broad veiw and much more experienced understanding of people than a 13 yr old, and as such, im able to determin for myself, who is a ratbag, and who is not, and to make informed judgements and think for myself, not being swayed by the mindsets and hidden intentions of others.
As an adult I make a judgement on the merits of the site based on this, an accept a large prportion of garbage as part of the package.
Its the sensible and civil and above all, rational and logical discussion that does occure here on these subjects from time to time, that draws me here.
Where is the hypocrasy exactly?

Hey kid,

Best advice ever.

Stay in school and be positive, don't spend too much time on this website. Even though we are both correct, don't be corrupted.

GL - I'm not much older than you realistically but it will be much tougher for you.
