Hello ATS! the usual "lurker" here.
About me: Well, I'm a 30 year old male from the mid-west that is just trying to keep my head above water and out of the sand so to speak. Like most
everyone else here (in my imaginings), I'm just trying to gather as much information and apply my own unique views to find the truth. Unfortunately
in this day and age of information, it seems to be getting harder, not easier (especially with programs like photoshop). With all the bloggers,
internet news, the MSN, Disinfo, even the governments lies, its like the truth is becoming so watered down that there isn't much left to it. What is
left seems to divide and fuel the separation of people both in and out of the truth movement. It is hard to do research and find credible information.
At times this feeling becomes so overwhelming that it truly seems that this whole search for truth seems to be a waste a waste of time with no hope of
reaching the carrot on the end of the stick. Then I realize that this feeling cant be uniquely my own. I realize if I do not look for the truth, MY
truth, I will never know what is going on.
The thing that bothers me the most is the feeling of powerlessness, to look around and see how horribly wrong things are going, and to know that there
isn't alot I can do. So I try and stay vigilant, watching the headlines and visiting fine sites such as this (this being the finest), in hopes of
absorbing as much information as possible while trying to filter the BS. I try to witness if you will, to my neighbors friends and family. Not to fear
monger or appear important, but to somehow pass the spark of interest into the subjects I hold dear to my heart. Subjects that I feel are of up-most
importance to our survival as a species, and life as we know it. This has been tough though. Ive alienated many people for this reason, but if I can
help to awaken someone else its worth it. The Ironic thing is that I myself am not truly awake, nor could I ever be, or anyone else in my honest
opinion. There is too much information to contain in one mind.
I started dabbled into conspiracy theory in the late 90's when a friend of mine started to have late night alcohol fueled debates about religion and
philosophy. He popped an vhs tape in about the fema camps, martial law, black helicopters, military strikes on civilian houses, hidden military
messages on street sign etc. I must have shown the video to 10 or more people in the short time I was in possession of it. I'm not sure why but while
I was extremely interested, I was never GRABBED like I was later.
Fast forward to 2007. I for the first time in my life decided to get the net. It was amazing to have all the info and entertainment right at my
fingertips. I began staying up late and neglecting things slightly, I was hooked. Then I discovered youtube.
regular life, over shortly after. I started researching the paranormal a bit. You know the ghost caught on film etc. This slowly progressed to
demons, religion, 2012, etc. Just for fun, it was like being a little kid again listening to ghost stories. THEN I watched loose change. I was blown
away. While I was skeptical of course there was so much to that video that rang truth. I'm not saying I believe everything i saw, but I definitely
felt as in I was on the cusp of something. This subject soon became the focus of my entire waking life. At, work, at home in my sleep. The agony and
anger I felt that day and towards these events was enraged. 7 years after 911 I was engulfed by this subject and the possibility that our government
would lie to us. I became obsessed. I started consuming every video clip and article I could find on the subject. It was extremely invigorating and
incredibly scary at the same time. I lost alot of sleep and a couple friends due to my quest, but it opened alot of other subjects for me to research.
I continued mostly in earth based conspiracies over the next couple of years.
To be continued......
