I have a question related to ATS threads

To start with, My name is Chris, I live in Alaska, I have a unique educational and work background, I work on a military installation as a civilian and I've been an ATS member for a few years now. I'm also currently medicated from a recent, invasive back surgery that was 8 years overdue. However, before and after my surgery I've had a humbling revelation. I've always had alot of knowledge and information I've always intended to share with the world and I might've never gotten the chance to do so had things gone awry during my surgery.

Personally, I've never posted threads based on any of my more in-depth research material and for a variety of different reasons.

I have some ideas for threads I could set up for this material but my question is if it is allowed for me to do so. I ask because from what I've seen over the years these wouldn't be your standard ATS style threads.

To provide you with some general background on my research papers/material, here are some of the topics (Note: some of these not the actual topics of my research papers)

The History and Bizarre Nature of Electromagnetism

Health Care Fraud

The Relationship Between Paranormal Research and Mainstream Science

The Relationship beteen the "God Particle" and the Paranormal

Could both "Dark Energy" and "Dark Matter" be explained by parallel universes?

The flaws and contradictions of applying the traditional Scientific Process to the unknown

"Big Bang" or "Big Bust"? So much about the beginning of the universe is completely unexplained yet widely accepted. However, there are alternative scientific explanations that would much easier explain what really happened when our universe was born.

I guess my reason for posting this is just because I now realize I won't be here forever and I've never had the opportunity to share alot of this stuff with others. One of my papers was posted on a different website about a year ago by another ATS member and credited to myself, but I still have so much I want to share with the world. I'm just worried that if I DO release all this information on ATS, others might use it and then credit themselves for using it. Especially since none of it has been published.

So I guess I'm asking for both an answer plus a little advice on where to go from here.

So in short your concerns are related to copyright issues?

It is our policy to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (found at the U.S. Copyright Office) and other applicable intellectual property laws.

My suggestion is if you are still uncertain after reading above pages then you should directly contact one of the Administrators (SkepticOverlord or Springer) via U2U or via the ATS E-mail form found here.

Looking forward to reading your threads. Sounds enthralling.

You have to enlighten us. If you have valid information, it must be shared. Why let that knowledge go to waste. As you said, you wont be around forever. Wouldn't you rather educate those of us who may not have a profound knowledge base on a topic you may have had hands on experience?

Educate, and deny ignorance!
