Why make an announcement on a fringe website hours before something happens?
If you know something is gonna happen that could injure or kill people, you say it as soon as possible.

This is the sort of thing that should be on a science fiction website. I could barely get through this "information. i tried my damndest to be objective as i want to give differing ideas a chance but this is the sort of stuff that ends up wasting peoples time. There are so many other things people could be researching or checking out. This is why I have to take extended breaks from ATS. As i said, i try to be objective but some things are just too outlandish to be taken seriously.
I think it's very dangerous when people start using words like "Fact" and "truth" when talking about things we have no way of knowing are, indeed, "factual" or "truthful". ATS is lucky to have a number of people who are able to discern whats real versus what is patently unreal, but they are in the minority.
Too many of your average citizens will believe damn near anything they are told. Once a statement becomes "fact" to such a person it spreads like a disease and infects others. This is how old wives tales and urban legends are propagated.
For example, look at the "2012 Mayan prophecy" subject. It has become "mainstream" , with average, everyday people -who know absolutely nothing about the Mayans or their calendar- talking about the end of the world.

To me, one of the great conspiracies of all time are the conpiracy theorists themselves. Many so called "authorities" on many such "conspiracies" are doing what they do for one simple reason: money.
You or i may be interested in conspiracies, do research, read or buy books, attend lectures (for a fee), etc. But it's just like "The Secret" or Tony Robbins, or Joel Osteen (and the other Mega Church "pastors"). They are using some "secret knowledge" to get you to part with your money.
i don't mean to color ALL "conspiracy theorists" in this way. Please, don't get me wrong. Nor am I condemning all conspiracy theories. But SOME are pure garbage.

Lets say Captin S. from the origanal GLP thread is the real deal. And the Bluecoat2 fella are actually the same guy. Well shortly after the announcment of the ...errr.. announcment, the website that bluecoat2 was posting on required that you become a full member to even see the post. But the real problem was that no one could register to their site. A few members here, including myself, tried to create an account there but it kept saying "database error." Well now anyone can check it out ,no problem. So that stuck me as strange, because the message said specificlly that to view the discusion boards, you had to be a member. So why would someone go through the trouble of creating that error message if it was never true that you have to be a member to view threads?....hmmmm... And shortly after the thread was available again some guy goes on to GLP claiming HE was the origanal OP, but he was on vacation or mission( he said he was doing both)
So (still wearing ATS foil hat) Maybe TPTB tried to block people from seeing his "Bluecoat2" message and when it wasnt working they put a dis info angent onto GLP to discredit the "Bluecoat2" fella.
(Taking ATS tin foil hat off now)
So just some good ole conspiracy theroy talk for ya.
