I am a mid 20s engineering student in the beautiful country of Australia. I was put onto ATS by a friend who, at the time, I thought was a bit of a
nutter. He would often come up with ideas, theories and stories about aliens, 9/11 and other conspiracy theories. At the time I replied with the very
closed minded "Why do all alien stories come from the US?" or "Surely the US Gov wouldn't kill its own citizens?".
He easily shut me down with examples of other alien encounters or other false flag event. Ignorance was surely bliss as I turned a blind eye to
history and evidence. After lurking on ATS and researching these events for 18 months or so I finally have a roughly educated opinion and I think it's
time to be a slightly more active member
So here is my general stance on some common ATS topics:
9/11 - While I don't believe in a controlled demo of the twin towers I do think something is very suspect about building 7. I think the Gov knows more
than they are letting on. I also believe they were aware the attacks were going to happen but not to what particular extent. I am 50/50 to whether a
plane hit the pentagon, while there are some great theories I just don't think anyone really knows or can recreate what happens when a plane at 500mph
hits reinforced concrete wall.
Chemtrails - No. I think it's hilarious. If the Gov or other entities wanted to poison people whey would do it with trucks on the ground. Much easier,
stealthier and cheaper.
Aliens - Don't really believe we are being visited, I am sure they exist. This is one of those "Believe it when I see it" deals.
UFOs - Of course. I don't think they are piloted by aliens though. With the insane budgets the military has I am sure they possess technology that we
can only imagine.
Bit more about me: Grew up on a yacht sailing around the coast of Aus. Father died of malignant mesothelioma from Asbestos when I was in highschool.
Best mate committed suicide 2 years later. Took me 5+years to get back on track and now I'm finally doing what I always wanted to do, studying to
become an Engineer. My outlook on life is very positive and very outgoing. I enjoy everyday and I love my friends and family. My mother is most likely
the greatest person on earth. I truly believe that every event in life can be looked at in a positive light. While I madly miss my father, I realise
how much I love the person that I have been sculpted into by my experiences. This is the positive that only time can shed light on. Something I always
try to explain to people going through a hard time.
I'm a agnostic theist. I believe in a spiritual soul and continuity of life force however I definitely do not subscribe to gospel written by man.
I will leave you with my favorite proverb:
"The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it."
Thanks for your time.
