Hi all, this my first thread and possibly a bit controversial.
I am a long time lurker on these boards and regularly use ATS to get the real picture of what’s going on in the world outside my little bubble. This
relies on credibility and integrity, not always easy bed fellows in a conspiracy forum. But some members have put forward stuff that never occurred to
me and have really opened my eyes.
However, I (like a number of other contributors who have mentioned this) have noticed an increase in alarmist threads which tend to exaggerate minor
situations. I’m talking about those pointless and seemingly never ending prophecies and predictions of doom and gloom.
Amongst the chicken licken brigade (Brit’s of a certain age will know what I mean) there are some members who use facts and logical deductions to
make realistic forecasts / predictions which sound plausible. By contrast, several posters have jumped on, for example, the timewave zero bandwagon
and turned it into a divining tool.
If I have learn't anything since the ‘alleged’ terror attacks of 9/11 and 7/7 it’s that things are not always what they appear to be. We all
need to be mindful and if possible, forewarned. That means not running for your tin hat just because stellar objects happen to line up with a certain
point in space or some software algorithm keeps returning the value 7 (or whatever).
However, I do want to be in a position to react when I see the signs - way before the faeces hits the rotational device and that’s where the
predictions come in but they need to be credible.
To this end I’m putting this out there to provide people with the opportunity to create a prophecy and prediction hall of fame / hall of shame. Any
posters who you feel have presented reliable predictions / prophecies that have some value go to the hall of fame – they get the credit they
The alarmist, nut jobs and fakers can be consigned to the other area. I should point out that it would be possible to appear in both halls since
predictions are inherently fickle but I’d like to give a go. Could this work? Any takers?
