Hello everyone. I've been lurking these forums for a while now - about 3 years. Now it's time to have my say. I look forward to having some discussions and debates about topics that are frequently ignored and dismissed by the mainstream media. That is the main reason why I'm here - the MSM doesn't do it for me any more. I'm sick of getting lied to daily from guys in suits reading scripts.

What brought me here originally was my interest in UFOs and paranormal activity in general. I've seen three FOs that can't be explained by currently known technology. Every time there's a news story about the subject, they play the X-Files theme and turn it into a bit of a joke. It's not funny any more.

Anyway, enough of the intro. Nice to be here - talk to you soon.

HexagonSun.

To true, and those are some interesting topics, especially on these boards...you may find yourself engrossed in those forums daily.


An acceptable addiction IMO...cya around.

I joined this site for some of the very same reasons. Unfortunately I see more BS here than in MSM. The difference here is there is at least talk about the subjects.

I will say there are some talented SCI FY writers here.

Can you tell people how the points system works around here? What causes you to get more points, less points. Is it a arbitary number? Is the points awarded and taken away on someone's opinion?

When a member makes a thread they gain points. When members reply to that thread the person replying gets points, the OP of the thread also receives points when members reply to there thread.

Different forums pay out different amounts of points.

Points awarded go from 1 to 2500 points depending on the forum

Staff can give members 500 point in the form of an "Applaud" for good post, or threads.

Penalties
10 points to 1000 points can be deducted for infractions of the T&C.

Here are some threads about points ATS Search: Points

Edit to add
As long as members abide the T&C while stating there opinion, there is no reason for staff to intercede at all.
If I where to take points from a member because I did not like what they had to say my job as a Mod would be gone in an instant. Moderators can't just go to some ATS page and remove points from a member, every action we take is recorded and reviewed by the rest of the Staff.

Figured that one out already
But like you say, at least everything's open to discussion - much healthier than a daily injection of half-truths and outright lies.

Thanks for all the welcoming replies. I know where everything is, but I'm just having trouble uploading an avatar. I've uploaded it, set the image as "my avatar" but it's not displaying for some reason. Any tips on that one? Thanks

It's OK I've figured out how to do it now.

Thanks for that reply. Is there some kind of winner or loser due to total points? Any prizes?

I am always intrigued by alien believers. Keep in mind that is not a term to induce stigma, but a term of endearment. I know it takes courage to admit that you have seen things that others do not readily believe, I was in the army and saw some things that I still don't discuss openly. I may not believe 99% of alien literature/research/study, but I always approach the topic with an open mind.

Having said that, could you tell me a little more about your experience? I'm sure that together we can find like minded people to network with and discuss it further with persons whom are proclaimed subject matter experts.

Finally, welcome to the ATS Community. I am a rather new poster myself, though I have been lurking in the shadows for some time. Recently I have felt the urge to dump data to the site as my health is failing me at a young age due to events, and I am currently very interested in other persons motivations for posting. Please share and enjoy!

Sure. And Hi, nice to meet you.

I've seen about 9 or 10 that I thought could be UFOs. They were all high altitude sightings, but could still be seen easily with the naked eye. They all looked like moving stars - almost like satellites but they were moving in a strange manner. The best way I can describe their movement was like how a fish swims. Bobbing from side to side with sudden bursts of acceleration and making sharp turns. It's weird, they look alive. There were 3 sightings that I'm 100% positive were UFOs. I I'll describe these 3.

The first one was about a year ago - maybe a bit longer.
I was in my garden looking at the stars because it was a clear night - a rarity around here
- I saw a "moving star" so I obviously watched it to see if anything weird happened. At this point it could have just been a satellite so I wasn't too excited, but after a few seconds the strange movement became clear, and it started to change direction and speed up. Then I noticed another one coming from the opposite direction heading straight towards the first one. The second one dodged out of the way and kind of stopped for a few seconds, and then flew off somewhere out of sight. I couldn't believe what I just saw - my heart was racing and I thought I was going to collapse.

Second sighting was about a year ago too.
I was in bed one night just watching the stars because I couldn't sleep. I sleep in an attic bedroom with two large skylight windows and my bed is directly underneath one of them. So imagine my view, it's just a rectangular window directly above me on a very clear night, so I could just see a rectangle of stars - there were about 10 stars in the picture.
After about 20 minutes, a moving star came into the picture, it was moving just the same as how I described earlier. It was flying towards what I thought was just a star (it had been stationary all night just like a star should be). I thought it would just carry on past the star because I assumed they were both on different planes/depths, but it didn't. It got to this stationary object and just stopped - it didn't come out the other side as I was expecting.
So I don't know what that was. It could have been a mother ship or one of those morphing/separating UFOs you see on youtube - I don't know. It confused the hell out of me though.

Third sighting was about 6 months ago.
I was in my garden again on a clear night just looking at the stars. After about 10 or 15 minutes I got a bit bored so I started walking down the path to go back inside. I saw a really bright "moving star" flying in the same direction I was walking, and then a few seconds later, an even brighter one flew up behind the first one and overtook it. As it overtook, the first one moved out of the way, waited a couple of seconds, and then followed the second one. These were really fast, especially the second one that overtook. If they were flying at the same altitude as aeroplanes do (about 36,000 feet), which I think they were, the second one must having been going at least 10 times as fast as a typical aeroplane.

The other 6 or 7 sightings were the same "moving stars" but there was only ever one at a time, so there's not much of a story to tell - no interaction.
It's weird though, I've been watching the stars for as long as I remember, but it's only in the last couple of years when I've seen things I can't explain.
These were definitely not satellites - that is always the first thing I consider when I see a suspect UFO. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't. Definitely not planes, helicopters, Chinese lanterns, balloons etc etc.
I know it sounds a bit mad but to me they look as though they're alive. It's the way they move - like fish, but stars.
Either that or it could be ETs flying some seriously advanced technology, or it could be us flying some seriously advanced technology


Either way, something exciting is happening that we've not been told about. Exciting times we are living in.


Thanks for your interest anyway. I didn't think people were still bothered about UFO sightings if there's no video to back it up, so I've not told those stories before until now. I'll try and make some moving GIF images to recreate what I saw, but it might be a few days.

What about your story? I'd like to hear that if you don't mind.

I actually haven't been totally convinced by anything I've personally seen. I have questioned but living on a military base for half a decade clears a lot of things up. I remember the first time I saw a night flight of a V-22 Osprey at a distance where the sound was muted at best. Creeped me out until I asked someone else in the barracks. However, I have seen a great many things in the military that force me to accept that the world is not as we see it each day. There is definately more to it and the extent of our governments technological gap compared to the civillian sector is what scares me most.

The only really esoteric experience I have had can be found here : www.abovetopsecret.com...

It's the most honest description I could give and I really put a lot of thought into it, as it was originally a reply to another poster. I am sincere when asking questions and thank you for sharing. I look forward to seeing your dramatization of the event. I may even be able to help describe what military aircraft it could be, though from what you're already describing it doesn't sound like anything I've ever seen or heard of. Very intriguing indeed.

I'm not too clued up with secret military technology but I accept that it could explain what I saw. I know there must be a lot of things they don't tell the public. Do you think it's just technology they are keeping secret, or do you believe there are certain human abilities that they know about and we don't. Like remote viewing and astral travelling. Or is that just a load of BS?
I'll check your link out now.

OK, thanks. I'll probably just start a new thread then, when I get round to making those GIFs.

My beliefs stem more from our ability to create what we imagine. While I don't believe the esoteric form of Astral Projection, or remote viewing and the same ilk, I lean more toward our infinite ability to dream and make dream reality.

I believe that the future holds many things, and that the line between what we dream and what is real is thinning by the day.

Key Example : While the esoteric idea of Omniscience/Omnipresence is something I do not believe exists, we must wonder what the internet can be considered in that same fame of reference. If you dream of Onmiscience/Omnipresence, and you weigh the internet against it; though imperfect, it is one of the closest forms that man can create.

Another Example : Astral Projection in the esoteric form must be weighed against television, remote access digital viewing. How much different are the two in reality? While Astral Projection and out of body experiences, I believe, will never be attained by man in the way we dream of it; we have certainly successfully taken our eye through another plane of existence (the electrical grid/information grid/the very air we breathe) and instantly we become transported to anywhere in the world at any time or place.

Maybe that will help you understand my views in a clearer fashion.
