I have decided to finally sign up here. I'd say the biggest reason for not signing up sooner is because this site is a little bit intimidating with all the people out there playing devil's advocate (and not to mention the kinda slighty schizophrenic posts) however I do believe I can contribute a decent amount to this site

I also try to be very objective and straightforward and don't want to hurt anyones feelings or be detrimental in any way (im sure sometimes it happens though it's admittidley entertaining lol) and i look forward to enjoying this site from a no longer outsiders perspective.

I'm a 21 year old college student in Texas and now I get to be a contributing member! I'm knowledgable in religion and spirituality (i know a lot about the bible, and the occult as well as meditation etc.) I keep track of the news every day and have been an active conspiracy theory follower for 5 years now, i DO take everything with a grain of salt though. Thanks for havin me on yalls site!
Best Wishes

Don't be intimidated, just a bunch of people here behind their computers or phones speaking their opinions. Just beware of the trolls!

I just joined recently too from what I have found is avoid the specific topic with the shift in the time line.. I think its a bunch or schizophrenics congregating. So far people seem to be nice.

Welcome to ATS, like most of us you took a long time to become a member, I am not sure if exactly the cause of that but imtimidation would definately come to mind

Looking forward to your posts and input in all arenas.

Having only just signed up myself I have to say that I have found the ATS forum to be much less judgmental and "odd" then I thought it would be from my many years of just reading the occasional thread, and to be honest have been given a much warmer welcome here then on almost any other forum that I have ever posted on.

Hope you find it as positive as I have.

Hi MP !!

Recall crossing with ya in a thread already, and you brought very rational and clear positions to the topic. Seems like you'll do well here!

Welcome aboard. I too recently joined a couple months back after being a lurker for several months prior. I have found the board to be friendly for the most part.

Like yourself I have been following the conspiracy theories for several years but take most of what I see and hear with a grain of salt.
