Hi all, I've read certain areas of this site for a few months now - When I saw the 500th "OH GOD WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE COMET ELENIN IS PLANET X
AHHHHH" thread I had to register and post. While I do believe there are a lot of reasons for concern and for preparedness, I don't think wild
speculation and unfounded conspiracy theories are good for anyone - in fact, I believe many "conspiracy theorists" work against and discredit
themselves by offering speculation with no factual evidence to support it. That having been said, I think it's healthy to theorize and investigate,
but a responsible researcher will never release information publicly without being able to back it up. So, if you truly have "proof" then feel free
to say so, but if you're just speculating and picking people's brains, please identify that as your motive instead of trying to lure people in by
saying "PROOF OF BLAH BLAH BLAH." Honestly is the quality I respect most in people. =]
I believe there are conspiracies all around us, especially in government. I know information is hidden from us and our politicians work to satisfy
hidden agendas. I think ATS' motto, "Deny Ignorance" is a great motto and one that all people should live by. I've seen some very well thought-out
and researched ideas and theories here at ATS, and that's what kept me coming back. Respect to those of you who supply my brain with this material.
I am a long time follower of US foreign policy, US domestic policy, and government corruption. I believe in being my brother's keeper, but am an
atheist. I think "psychics" and "clairvoyants" and "seers" are con men and women, or just delusional. I'm a born skeptic and love getting to
the truth of something, but I do have my weaknesses (bias) in certain areas. I try hard to put them aside and welcome new information but it's not
always easy to do.
Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and also ask what the "W" and "K" stand for on a user's stats.
