This is not a post on behalf of bashing ATS by any means but I must share my thoughts to those of you who may be slipping... as I myself seem to be as
I will speak of ATS in the context of a drug, something psychoactive.
My first experience of ATS was back long ago, not too long, but back before any of the podcasts etc. Back when this whole site was just being loaded
up with 9/11 conspiracies about this and that. I originally came across the site through a search engine while looking up parapsychology and
pseudoscience. Mystical stuff such as telekinesis and the stretches of physical possibility.
Over time I read the news feeds and followed up on all the news and speculations and all the fear mongering and worry. Wow what a schizophrenic place!
It has rubbed off on me quite a bit and I fear that too many of ATS's members are afflicted by the same disease. Today, I found myself on youtube
looking up recently added UFO videos for the 3rd day in a row. HOW PITIFUL!
I realize that everyone has their own levels of tolerance and sanity but please, for the sake of your health and your mental / emotional well-being,
analyze your actions and habits.
Are you moving in the direction you want? Do you have a Direction? Does it honestly involve CONSPIRACIES?
Truthfully, I have come to the conclusion that NOTHING on this site comes out to be of any significance UNLESS it hits the MSM.
So - Why waste my afternoon hours refreshing the latest topics scanning for new UFO videos and PROPHESIES OF EARTHQUAKES?
If a ufo is spotted and filmed in Jerusalem - WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE! IT'S NOT HOVERING OVER MY HOUSE!
If a post says "New Madrid Fault - Unleashing wrath in 3 hours!" honestly... - What difference does it make?
This place has driven my daily habits to the realm of disgust and I am ASHAMED to have stooped so low.
I had to come to this conclusion in order to save myself from the perpetuating ritual of checking ATS on my spare time.
I used to get pissed at my mother for freaking about murders and robberies she'd hear about on the news. NOW I'M 3 TIMES WORSE THAN HER and
I'm done acting like I care about the rest of the world, until I'm ready to stand up and do something about the things I read, It's probably best I
don't read them. - Save me the emotional ties.
Please take a look at yourself as well, please don't get caught up in the psychological meltdown.
