Hey everyone how's it going?
I have been on ATS for a long time and I had never created an account before. I would like to express my opinions considering that people don't seem to understand the difference between socialism and communism but regardless let's move on
I'm from Canada, very politically aware about the world around me. I love zombies, guns, military goods and post-apocalyptic survival guides. While I do believe in alien life I don't believe the UFO stories that I see; sorry about that. My ideology is socialism with some capitalism and my religious beliefs is Atheism. I am not saying that God or a God doesn't exist I am just saying that I don't believe in one if that makes any sense to you. There is a lot of paranoia towards Muslims on this site which I think is ridicules along with Fox News and the Tea Party. I am probably not the first one to say this but I think the 20 posts in the introduction forum is also ridicules and unnecessary. Would any of you be kind enough to tell me the fastest way to get to 20 posts?

So I have made what, 10 friends and 3000 enemies that's a great start right, right?

ETA: The fastest way to 20 posts is to dive right into the topics you like and reply to some threads. You'll get there in no time. The 20 post rule is there so that you can take some time to know the rules and engage within other threads before starting your own.

There is quite the learning curve here and this community takes ATS to heart. So we'd rather our members be prepared and know how things are suppose to be before we let them have fulll acess to all the site features.

And don't worry, I have FAR more friends here than enemies and my outlook on life is similar to yours

Wow you crammed a lot of ATS's favourite arguing topics into that one intro post.I can see many flags coming your way if you start threads in the same manner

Welcome to ATS.

I'm guessing that you are going to be in a lot of debates. Remember to expect and respect every kind of opinion.

Welcome! You have made yourself controversial on a conspiracy site in an introductory thread. Good job! You're gonna fit right in. Don't be afraid on making enemies. Most of the people who rail against you will be people who are trolls, and debunkers. Don't take it personal and just don't answer them. The rest of us don't.

See ya around!

It depends on what sort of atheist you are. Sounds like one with social issues - you have morals and you have an image of the Cosmos. As long as you are tolerant of other viewpoints they should welcome you and solicit your opinions.

Once I heard a Rabbi on the radio - he was talking to a friendly atheist who was trying gently to pick an argument.
The atheist confronted the RAbbi with saying: "Well, but there's this thing though, I just don't believe in God."
The Rabbi quickly said, "I don't either."
The atheist person was flabbergast. He asked back, honestly, without sarcasm:
"Well, with all due respect, aren't YOU supposed to believe in God - perhaps it's part of your job description?"
The Rabbi replied: "I just don't believe in the God YOU don't believe in."

So welcome. Buddhists turn it upside down and most are atheists.
There are atheist spiritualists, occultists and mediums in America - they happen to be left-wing thinkers at the same time.

I like differences and I like honest values and when someone can argue intelligently in the favor of human development, I bow before it.

Let's hear your views on Egypt, for example...

You may have figured this out by now, but in case you haven't, I want to point out that I think you have misinterpreted that rule. You only have to get 20 posts total. As in 20 replies within any forum, before you can start your own thread on a different forum(other than the intro forum). You can reply to any thread you want to, in any forum, as soon as you register.

Well I can say that I am totally against the USA helping Mubarak for one thing. However I was not surprised to find out that they were getting oil and that stuff in return for it. I figured that this was going to happen eventually seeing as how they have been a dictator for over 30 years (at least I think it's 30 years). Every right that a dictator takes away will cause a tipping point in the scale. The population will snap, protests will start, and before you know it the skies will rain with Molotov cocktails. I don't think that China's dictator will be overthrown so easily. They have done such a good job at keeping their population dimmed down, that its scary. They have actually blocked out any news coverage from Egypt in their own country. But there this is still some hope for China no matter how slim it may be and I hope that the Egyptians will find some peace, and harmony with whatever new government comes into power.

Yes, it's been 30 years. And Mubarak gave less to clients recently than he used to - plus his son wanted to try some neo-liberal style privatisation, and both the general population and the Army were against it.

I agree, there is hope for China. I am glad you confirm my perception. Let's not forget that their horrible Cultural Revolution lasted for such a long time... I am waiting for the bottle to pop, there is pressure.
It is a big place, humanly speaking, as big as North America or Europe.

This is an age where the truth will be out. Atheist thinkers will surely look at historical factors more thoroughly... to quote Bob Marley: collective security for surety... yeah

Welcome, GuerillaFighter. As a new member myself, it does appear to be hectic around here. Oh, well. Life isn't fair I guess. Just be careful when you give an opinion regarding absolutely anything, whereas, it will be swiftly dismissed as wrong and/or criticized. Thick skin is needed, as I learned. The site is amazing, though. It contains loads of information. However, it does seem like the apex forum is the Politics. No surprise there, go figure.

I, too, love conspiracies regarding Aliens and whatnot, and have contemplated starting a thread about sais topic. Then I looked at all the replies to previously made threads and thought twice. Everything's quickly dubbed a hoax or branded 'old news'. Well, then maybe ATS should shut down the UFO/Aliens forum since everyone knows everything. That's what attracted me to this site and then I was suckered into (personally) less interesting forums.

Anyways, welcome. Canada is such a beautiful country. Nice people and beautiful scenery. Reminded me of my country in more ways than one.

Take care
