Greetings to everybody on ATS
I have actually posted a couple of replies before making my introduction, I apologise - I didn't mean to be rude but for whatever reason I hadn't
realised that it was etiquette on here to make an introduction before diving in. So here I am. Hello!
It makes me cringe to say it, but I have become a conspiracy theorist over the past 3 years or so. This doesn't mean that I think everything is a
conspiracy, only that I have finally accepted that not all human beings are as innocent as I used to think they were, and that the hunger for power
can drive (some) people to do unthinkable things. I aim to be as open-minded as possible.
I would be a hypocrite if I forgot that during all of my adult life previous to these 3 years I was a complete skeptic, and even quietly ridiculed the
tinfoil-hat wearing loons (as I saw them at the time)! I had seen Loose Change a couple of years before and was entirely unconvinced, then I met an
ardent believer who felt the need to try to force me to believe in the 9/11 cover-up and wanted to imply that I was 'unable to think properly' (I
believe he used those words) if I didn't agree. I believe it was partly my reaction to his extreme pushiness that stopped me from seeing what I now
believe to be the truth for another couple of years. There's a lesson for us all there
Anyway I'm glad to have found ATS, so thanks. I've been reading for a few months but only joined a week or so ago. Whether I agree or disagree with
your point of view, I want to say thanks in advance for future discussions.
In Lak'ech (I am another one of yourself)
