I do not, but if you do, explain why.

By mainstream I mean you believe

1) Aliens have not visited Earth
2) Terrorism and global warming are our main threats
3) There is no conspiracy for one world government or depopulation
4) History began 6000 years ago; there were no civilizations like Atlantis or Lemuria prior to that
5) We went to the moon, nothing special was hidden there

I doubt you will get many replies due to the fact that this is a site for people who want to deny ignorance and recieve some news from other sources by like minded people. Good luck on this one.

I'll address them in order..

1) Aliens have not visited Earth
A) I think we probably have been, perhaps not as frequently as some think.

2) Terrorism and global warming are our main threats
A) Nope.. Socialism....

3) There is no conspiracy for one world government or depopulation
A) I think the current trend towards Socialism would love a One World Government and I also think the people that pull their strings are so rich and powerful as to be untouchable.

4) History began 6000 years ago; there were no civilizations like Atlantis or Lemuria prior to that
A) I believe in the Bible, but I also think there are so many things we just don't understand. So no, I think the world is older than 6k.

5) We went to the moon, nothing special was hidden there
A) Now that is a good one... I believe we went to the moon yes, but not real sure what we found ...

Now that is hardly mainstream, it's more like a little river pouring into the wastelands


Besides, I don't think you find many believing in all those - especially from ATS.

Wrong again. People are our greatest threat. Do not blame the tool when the user is going crazy.

I see. If you don't understand something, you have to believe in it. I do this as well - I don't understand gravity but I have to believe in it as it seems to affect my physical me

I has tired of believe this because the reason they think that Today's Human Scientists are the smartest people that ever lived in the universe is an overstatement of Human Ingenuity and both Global Warming and Islamic terrorism are mostly just fear that turns everyone into sheeple or cattle for Capitalism and to make this even worse, so many people are trained to only hear and believes people like Al Gore(promotes irrational fear of Global Warming and he is more than capable of affects current scientific consensus), George W Bush(Promotes irrational fear of Islamic Terrorism so people will hate Islam), "Journalists"(alters perception of Reality of majority), and So-Called experts(they are bunch of big fat liars that lied to everyone about the World)

I doubt I will find anyone who believes in NONE of these here - but I'm interested, to see how people refute these points. Because I think all 5 of these mainstream views are wrong. But who knows, maybe I'm wrong!

That is what makes the world such a wonderful place though, isn't it?

The fact which your latter phrase presents actually makes the world miserable place. If people just quit believing in the illusions within their heads...

Sorry to keep replying you even if your posts are not directed to me. I just find them irrestitable.

1) I think these aliens are not ET's that comes down for a snack or any thing like that.
I believe that what we are vitnessing there, is our ancient rulers coming up for a peek and to Remind us that they are still here and still in charge.Goes back maybe 100.000's of years.. Hard to say..

2) Terrorsim and GW is definitely some form of a Tactic to keep our eyes away from them and their agendas..
Just look how they put Bills into law everytime there is some Huge thing in the Media..

3) The NWO is real and is being talked openly about on the MSM and mentioned by high ranking political figures all over the world.

4) 6000 years is absolutely hogwash, here in Norway in June, they found remains of humans that they think is atleast 8000 years old.(Cant find any articles on it, but it was on the News)

5) The moon landing footage I think is a Mix of authentic footage and fakery, in order to show they were there and the fake footage is inserted where 'things not for our eyes' used to be..

Well I don't believe Aliens have come to earth. If life on other planets exist, which I am not saying it doesn't, but I don't think they have achieved the ability to travel here anymore than we have been able to travel there.

Hmm, they say that our solar system is one of the younger ones in the milkyway, I cant see why other lifeforms should'nt be much further ahead of us, as life seems to start with a cell and grows into monkey than onto man, surly the 'man' on planets that are billions of years older have evolved into something else and have passed the level of technology that we are currently at...That would be the law of Evolving, ja ??

Mainstream gets some stuff right, some stuff wrong. There's no point in denying all mainstream or embracing all mainstream.


1) Aliens have not visited Earth

Yes but mostly a long time ago.


2) Terrorism and global warming are our main threats

No. Terrorism is a problem but not a "main threat". Those terrorists are comparitively weak. It remains to be seen whether Global Warming is a problem or not.

3) There is no conspiracy for one world government or depopulation

World-Unity is a good thing if diversity and local sovereignty is maintained.

4) History began 6000 years ago; there were no civilizations like Atlantis or Lemuria prior to that

Humankind has been playing games since Trillions of years.

5) We went to the moon, nothing special was hidden there

Yes, we went to the moon.

That doesn't mean they evolved the same way we did.

Great questions! Here's my take on them.

1) Aliens have not visited Earth

I believe that it is certainly possible, but I have never seen any evidence that gives me reason to believe it happened. The idea that this one little planet is the only one out of a mind-blowingly large universe to develop life, is not an idea that sits comfortably with me.

The world is full of lots of interesting clues, from seemingly impossible works of science or architecture, through to art and records.

The problem is that we are a very ingenious and symbolic race. When we create art, symbolism and stylism runs through it. When we view art, we can often find symbolism in it, regardless of the intention of the originator. Symbolism is a subjective issue that draws on our own beliefs at that time. Our stylised symbolic "spaceman" may have been a stylised symbol of a shaman or king in ceremonial robes for an ancient artist. We judge architecture by the same standards of our own time. When we see a building that we would need cranes and power tools to create, we forget that the ancient architect was just as clever as us, and had their own resources to draw on that we just don't know about - from forgotten tools and understanding of mechanics, to vast quantities of time and labour.

2) Terrorism and global warming are our main threats

We are our own worst threat. I do not feel well versed enough to comment on global warming, but if it is a natural part of Earth's cycle, should be really view it as a "threat" or just part of our environment that we need to adapt to?

3) There is no conspiracy for one world government or depopulation

Unified government is certainly something that some may push towards politically. Whether it would work or not in the way most people suggest is another matter. I could more plausibly see the EU trying to expand and maintain the member states/central oversight model. I think there would be too many concessions asked from the major players both inside and outside the EU for it to expand world wide, unless there are some world-level upheavals.

4) History began 6000 years ago; there were no civilizations like Atlantis or Lemuria prior to that

I think that history began long before the Earth, let alone humanity. If you mean the history of the human race, then I think there is plenty of archeological history that dates before 6,000 years. History is only ever an issue of perspective. Tomorrow isn't history to us, but it will be to someone at a later date.

I would not be surprised if a civilisation is one day found and identified as the basis for Atlantis, or even Lemuria though I think that was based on a scientific observation to explain some findings, that can now be explained by the theory of continental drift. I'm sceptical of there being a super-advanced humanity of the kind so often discussed now, but who knows?

5) We went to the moon, nothing special was hidden there

I believe that man reached the moon. I certainly believe man has the ability and technology to do so, though I wouldn't be too surprised to find out that the moon landings were faked to make sure the US won the race.

I quite liked the idea posted earlier that the footage was a mix of real and fake, either to hide something or even just to bolster the strength of the claim. Having said that, I do not currently believe that anything "special" was found and subsequently hidden.

1) Aliens have not visited Earth
Response - I'm sure they have.

2) Terrorism and global warming are our main threats
Response - Man made global warming is false. Terrorism is real. Radical Islamic terrorism is very real and dangerous. But the main threats are socialism in the West, lies of the media to manipulate people, and political correctness making excuses for things that are just plain wrong - like Islamic terrorism.

3) There is no conspiracy for one world government or depopulation
Response - There most certainly is.

4) History began 6000 years ago; there were no civilizations like Atlantis or Lemuria prior to that
Response -


5) We went to the moon, nothing special was hidden there
Response - we DID go to the moon. Nothing was hidden there ... but NASA and the Gov't did the hiding of the fact that we weren't alone up there and that there was a lot more than rocks on the moon.

I believe most of the mainstream view, as long as it is backed up by evidence.

1) Aliens have not visited Earth

I think the mainstream view on this is that there is no convincing evidence for it. And we have yet to invent a method to travel such large distances. Until then it will remain an unknown, and I think that is also the mainstream view.

2) Terrorism and global warming are our main threats

This I do not really believe. Although we should also not ignore these issues. Climate change has proven to be catastrophic throughout history.

3) There is no conspiracy for one world government or depopulation

I do not believe in "the powers that be" as a uniform group of people with the same goals and ideals. Some people in power will want a world government, some don't. As for depopulation, if there are people in power who want that, I think its just a very small minority.

4) History began 6000 years ago; there were no civilizations like Atlantis or Lemuria prior to that

I do not believe we humans had advanced civilizations before as I think that would have had a larger impact on our planet and surroundings. We would have found signs of it.

5) We went to the moon, nothing special was hidden there

This I believe.

  1. Aliens have visited the earth from pre-historic times to this very day, but most of them comes from Lower Astral plane
  2. both Terrorism(specifically Islamic Terrorism) and Global Warming are just made up issues and both have the solutions from those that pushes these restricted to Capitalist-zionist approaches
  3. there will be a Capitalist New World Order
  4. there's Atlantis and Lemuria
  5. in the Dark-side of the moon, there's underground cities which is Base of the Illuminati
