Hi everyone, i've been browsing ATS on and off for a while as my interest in the hidden truths about our world gathered momentum and waned over time.
I first became interested in "alternative" information a couple of years ago when I started researching about 2012 and the various theories about
what is going to happen. I have my own theories which I am working on and will be hopefully posting something soon.
I am not religious in any way, although I am very interested in the history of religious ideas, as I think they can provide clues into how the human
race existed and what their beliefs and consciousness were like before the accepted mainstream version of religion, which seems to think that
Christianity is the "ultimate truth" of some kind, forgetting that religions such as Zoroastranism (sp?) preceded it by quite a while. Anyway, thats
a work in progress of mine.
I'm also interested in discovering who is really running the show and who TPTB really are. I work with a couple of guys who are convinced that the
illuminati are behind everything, and I have taken their ideas into consideration, but I dont think its a simple as that and i think it isn't useful
to boil all conspiracies down to one "group". Again, I am doing my own research and will hopefully post a thread about it soon.
In terms of my everyday life, I live in London UK and have been for a while, but I am planning to leave my job and go on a cycling tour of the UK for
2 to 3 months this summer. Nothing but a bike, tent, sleeping bag and some supplies. I think its important in these confusing times to make an effort
to get back to nature and the world around us and detach ourselves from all the technology that we rely so heavily on. Will probably make a post
extending these ideas as well.
So thats about it from me at the moment, I finally joined ATS so that I could develop my opinions about what is really going on more concretely and I
hope to instigate some discussion with like minded people.
I've had a look through the introductory threads but I was wondering if there was a way of getting notified when someone replies to one of your
posts? Ive looked through all the settings but cant seem to find anything. Dont really have the time to trawl through pages of different threads to
