Been following ATS since early 07, but finally decided to get an account. ATS has been a source of entertainment, information, disinformation, and
radical theories for me for a while so now it's time for me to contribute to the community!
A bit about myself:
I'm a 2nd Class Petty Officer in the US Navy (IS2) currently stationed in the National Capital Region (NCR) ... what I do, where I've been, and
where I work specifically really isn't of your concern (no offense), but if you get to know me, you'll get to learn a bit more about me. Hopefully,
I'll be able to provide some honest insight to the various threads and be able to give outside-the-box perspectives on some things.
Before you naysayers bring up the war(s) in the Middle East, I'm not here to say if us going in was or is not was justified, nor am I here to bash
you, nor am I here to make you believe in what I have to say (regardless of the repective thread's topic), but I encourage you all to research and
formulate your own opinions. I didn't join the military to be a part of the elitest agenda/NWO/whatever else ... I joined because I needed a swift
kick to the @ss and money for college. To some (very few individuals) of you who speak of hate against the military/police/government, I value your
opinion, but some of things I have seen posted are pretty hurtful and at the same time, I can see why you may percieve things to be a certain way.
Hopefully, I'll come across as somebody that presents himself in a completely un-biased manner as that just clouds perception and leads one to think
down the wrong path. I'm not here to bash because I too have my beliefs ...
Yes, I believe in aliens and have a strong facination with physics/the universe ... do I believe all UFO sightings are aliens? No, but I do believe
that all UFO sightings initially are just that: Unidentified. They may later be proven to be a plane/lantern/balloon/swamp gas (worst "explanation"
of the lot IMO), but for the meantime, if somebody doesn't know what something in the air is and defies their knowledge, then it is in fact a UFO ...
posters and contributers here do not always state they're aliens. I've seen plenty a troll try to debunk, cry "hoax" in the loosest sense of the
word, and flame other members for posting what to them is an oddity. Be nice! "Do unto others ..." as the saying goes. Don't try to change another
person's belief because it goes against yours ... state your case and move on. There's a difference between ignorance and stupidty and there's no
need to shoot down someone because they don't know what something is. Briefly going back to aliens, you would have to be egotistical to believe that
we are the only beings in our galaxy, let alone the universe. Again, am I saying all UFOs are aliens? Not in the least
I don't want to keep rambling on and make this intro thread too text-heavy, but I'm sure you guys will see more of me and I hope to speak to all at
some point! Can't wait until I get my 20 posts done so I can contribute more, but until then, this will have to do!
Take Care Homies,
