Hello to anyone and everyone that takes the time to read this introduction.

I have visited ATS for several years, I've read many threads and have actually come to this site first for any "real" news that might be out there on a daily basis.

A little about me...

I'm no super genius but, I'm by no means an idiot. I've realized that the more I learn, the less I truly know. It's pretty d*%# frustrating to be honest.

But, I have learned enough to know that by accepting the fact that I will never know absolute truth in this life...I'm on the right path.

I have an extremely open mind and vow to never settle on any "belief system". I tend to go with my instincts and guides and do what I feel is in the best interest of "All".

I am excited to have finally "officially" joined the discussions on this site and look forward to hearing from you all.

Cheers!

Hail new friend! I too have recently hitched my spaceship to this docking for the reality that seems to exist here. I am pleased to find like minds here open enough to let thoughts flow freely without letting all the negatives ones in. Rational ideas and critical thinking. And yes, sometimes rants and ravings when emotion and expression calls for it.

We are a free society and need to let thoughts flow. Bad enough the media elsewhere is muddled, cynical, negative and jaded. At least here Im finding, intellegent replies are understood to come from well meaning posters for the most part.

Im learning a lot, enjoying it all, and trying to find my place here. At least I know whatever I post, Ill at least have a better chance getting my point across. And yes, its fine to disagree.

Everyone has a voice. Just some a little louder than others...and Ive not had to shout.Welcome.

Welcome! I'm pretty much an idiot.



Now what? Just jump on in. Speak your mind. Say what you have to say, read what others have to say about what you said. Learn from it or not.

Enjoy!

By the way, in case you have a "thin skin" then use your mind to toughen it up. Or not.

There's members here who have very thick skins. Others skins seem to be so thin, I suppose I could see their heart beating within their chests.
Or some, like me, scrub myself with Lava soap each morning, hoping to get a bit more toughness to my skin.

First off, welcome, MagesticEsoteric. Glad you had finally decided to come onboard like many others after years of visiting this site and decides to contribute as a member.

Right or wrong perceptions doesn't matter,nor do deceptive trinklets such as stars and flags . What matters is that each speaks up and be heard. And if the effort is made for discussion instead of mudslinging, then it would have served several purposes to illuminate others minds.

And with such illuminations for considerations, the next step would be to go out into the real world and test out such ruminations upon others and watch their effect on them, espacially to those whom you care and love - your family, your relatives and friends.

There is no need to convince anyone here, more so members, for most here would have already made up their minds and would only continually regurgitate and repeat their point of views. This is not a cast of aspersion on them, but a compliment, for they have strong convictions on their beliefs, and stand by it.

It would take more than petty arguments to convince them. It takes rationality and logic, and even then, they must be given the choice to consider, for it is their freedom of speech and beliefs no man has the right to deny. Only they alone can choose for they have to live with the consequences of such convictions.

Many debates and discussions will be put across here, and you will be able to see and must discern the truth for yourself, double check on info if you are late to join in and not in the loop to comprehend.

At the end of the day, whatever you discern, you must SHARE those perceptions with those whom you care, as each and everyone of us will do. You and I, along with our families, relatives and friends, makes up society and civilisation. Change for better begins with you and I.

We are one, aspire and hopes the same, based upon the gift of life and love given when we were born.

Cheers! :-)

Welcome to the madness.

There is cold beer and pizza in the frig.
Let the cat out before you turn in for the night.
Oh and no shoes on the couch.

Peace

Well, I'm probably an idiot myself but maybe too darn proud to accept. Then again....maybe not.


Definately not "thin skinned" but still 100% Human, So my ego always has the chance of creeping out at some point. Hey, at least I'm being honest right?

However, 99.0123456789% of the time, I have to say that I'm pretty much up for any and all that comes my way.

As for the Lava soap, I hear ya man and couldn't help but laugh...and yeah it was even a LOL.

We are "all one" and I hope our aspirations are the same.

Love is the gift of life: Life is Love. (I wish I could remember where I read that)

I appreciate your advice and completely understand that some minds are not open enough to let anything in other than what suits that particular mind set or belief system.

I get it, I've been there. I consider myself lucky for having found the bigger truth hidden within the "big picture".

It's totally not my style to try and force my ideas and philosophies onto others b/c honestly, I want everyone to come to their own conclusions based on their own beliefs and experiences.

Having said that, I have no problem in voicing what I feel and what my opinions are of certain topics. I'm pretty sure that was the underlying "jist" of your post. If not, I'll drink another cup of coffee and read your reply again


Thanks again for your insight and by the way...as a "lurker" I always looked forward to reading your posts.

Cheers

I'm reminded of an old saying, "Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it."


Welcome aboard. U2u if you have any questions.

Thank you for welcoming me to the "Madness". I do have one complaint from the get go though.

Someone drank all the d#%@ beer, ate all the d#@$ pizza, the cat friggin' ran away and for some reason, my shoes are in the fridge.

Madness you say? I think I am already there.

cheers!

Not a problem. I'm more of a bourban kind a gal anyway.

I've always thought scotch tasted kind of soapy. Does that even make sense?

Any sign of the cat?
