I have been a member on this site for awhile. For the first few years, I would merely educate myself and not actively participate in any forum
discussions. I was extremely open-minded, and took everything someone claimed on here with a grain of salt.
This is my first post. I am 22, recent college grad, business owner, freemason, and employed for Merrill lynch on wall street. I always considered
myself a serious person, however was very intrigued with conspiracy topics. However, lately, I have decided to move from being an advocate to a
skeptic and here's why:
9.9/10 claims of any paranormal/alien/etc claims on this site are lacking all forms of viable evidence. If the evidence was good, it would be all over
the news. Those guys eat that # up.
9.9/10 times the sources cited for claims are from news websites that have close to 0 credibility. Send me a link to a reputable news source, and
maybe we can talk.
Half the people on this site should be diagnosed paranoid schizophrenics. Sorry, but I have a friend who's older brother is a schizo and half you
people write exactly like he talks, no offense.
9.9/10 times a UFO siting, abduction, paranormal event, etc. occurs, it's reported by some hillbilly/uneducated/white trash/acid tripping individual.
Cmon people, reptilian news reporters? Cmon, quit watching V.
Now, for the people out there who actually present viable evidence that promotes actual intellectual discussion, bravo to you. You know who you are. I
am not say every single post on this site is pointless, otherwise I wouldn't even waste my time here. Just about 99% of them. I am a skeptic bc over
all these years, I have researched just about everything from alien underground highway systems (ha) to shapeshifting news reports who have an agenda
to disinfo the public on their real agenda. Sorry people, but I feel like this is just getting out of hand.
The world will not end in 2012, there is no rogue planet, the YouTube UFO abductions and alien sitings are fakes (people just want to make money off
YouTube videos which is easy to do with a lot of hits), and for some reason aliens only seem to abduct non-credible sources.
I am an optimist, a realist, and a very successful and happy person who enjoys reading posts on this site just as much as playing golf (eh I take that
back). However, I'm sick of reading crap where I get 2 sentences into a thread and can come to the simple conclusion that it's either BS or the
guy/girl writing it is nuts. Lets keep ATS classy guys.
Oh, and hello everyone! Look for me to discredit your post in the near future...
