Well i've finally decided to join up to ATS. As a long time lurker, i feel the time has come to contribute my thoughts on Earths most controversial situations.

I know there are many, many members here so i'll keep this brief.

Born/raised in Australia, under a catholic single parent. I went to both a catholic primary school, and all boys catholic high school. Since a very early age, perhaps 6 or 7, i have questioned everything i had been told, starting off with the most obvious being God, and branching out from there.

I am now an agnostic, . I do not believe in any 'earth' religions, i follow no dogma, or believe in any 'creator', though i have a relatively strong belief in the ancient astronaut theory, and consider myself to have a very open mind, yet not blind. Everytime i read something, watch something, or hear something that has any kind of 'conspiracy' tint to it, i apply the following framework. Logically rational plausibility. Essentially, this is how my mind works. This is, to me, is the best way to analyze everything we experience in life.

I see no point in explaining my thinking on these types of subjects because i am of the assumption, most people here know what i'm talking about, and can easily connect the dots to see why i believe and think how i do.

I look forward to conversing with my fellow brothers and sisters, here at ATS.
