When it comes to ATS, I have always looked at all the information, and registered it into my own knowledge, but have never been able to be one of the proper "contributors" because of one simple problem ... I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO LOOK !!


It is extremely frustrating, that people find out about secret societies, or discover leaked documents, and post these kinds of things on here, but I wouldn't know the first place to look for such information.

You could just say "read the sources" which is something I tend to do to verify the information I read on here, but when I go onto source pages, there are a few good ones, but most are very obsolete and don't really contain much information, and certainly much less information than is collectively announced here in one day.

So tell me, where are some good places to look for information, any reccommended sources that are worthwhile?

Google is your friend. I use google all the time for info. It's all about what you type into the search engine.

1. Go to youtube
2. Do a search for "UFO" or "conspiracy"
3. Post the first thing you see immediately
4. Title the thread "OMG!! You have to see this!!"

alternatively...

1. Find a recently posted thread that is scoring lots of stars and flags
2. Find the news source link
3. Create your own thread citing that exact same source
4. Make sure you say "I did a search but didnt see it posted yet".

alternatively...

1. Pick up your bible
2. Create a thread with a weird religoius based theme
3. Put in huge amounts of quotes from the bible
4. Tell us this is proof that god exists.

So in other words, put up the same shizzle that everybody else puts up?


I was hoping to become a serious researcher ... we all have to learn from somewhere.

Google ... seems to me is not my best friends nowadays. I will look up certain things, but seem to be met with debunking, however I've been told that you can usually find some interesting stuff "hidden" deeper in the search pages, like 100's of pages in (because Google doesn't like conspiracy theorists apparently
), but I can't be arsed going through all that for info that may not be there

If you just want "news", some people get it from other websites such as online newspapers, medical journal type sites, legal, business, all over, also sites like reddit (a news aggregator I believe). Some people read books, even today a very good source of info if you have the right ones on a particular topic. Plenty of old topics are still news too, think JFK, Tesla, NASA/Apollo, WW2, 0/11, etc, etc.

Sometimes it's about dots and the connections between them rather than having "the latest scoop".

Hiya D, one way to get the information and ideas you're after is to just keep reading. Whatever subject gets your attention will have side-alleys that you can go and check out.

Now and then, one of these detours will turn up something you think will go down well on ATS.

Of course, you could also camp out on a news site and keep pressing *refresh* until something weird or 'conspiracy' shows up - quite a few members depend on this technique


Another way is to keep an eye out for someone's cool post inside a thread and then nick it off them without giving credit...some guys depend on this too.

You could dig into the archived threads from years ago and uncover a detail that deserves a chance on stage?

There isn't a one-stop-shop of stuff that hasn't been flogged to death around here already. I guess it's just about keeping your eyes open and being the quickest to post the thread about whatever shows up. Good luck.

redicecreations.com
there are a few other ones i've heard of from people but i like to check on that one for alternative news
there's another a friend of mine uses that has a bit less alternative topics but still better than the mainstream
it might have been www.independent.co.uk... i just remember it was something to do with independent news

If you want to be an accomplished researcher here why don't you start a new trend and break the "I'm afraid of the experts because they bite" stigma that has infected ATS. If an expert or witness is claiming something then give them a call or send them an email. Nobody does this here. They just make armchair assumptions about the limited information available. It's like all the experts are protected by the Secret Service. If Joe Blow is claiming he has a free energy device but there is something that looks like a battery plugged into it, don't just go back and forth arguing that it is or isn't a battery. Get a hold of the guy. If you don't know what a UFO witness was doing ta 3am with his camcorder at the ready then get onto their Youtube channel and ask them. In truth experts and witnesses are often happy to share their insights because it is what is important to them. That's why I joined ATS. A few years ago ArMap asked me to join a technical discussion here because he found out I was an expert in a related field. Google can only get you as far as the average armchair researcher.

Depends on what you are looking for? What are you interested in?

If you are really into a certain topic...say...aliens, then you will be able to find things easily.

If, on the other hand, you are only looking for news to get it up first on ATS for personal gain or glory....it's a little tougher.

Just find something you like and have fun.

Don't know if this helps at all, but. Someone here said recently that google and other search engines sometimes put the least influence into some good stuff. Their process was to google something interesting, then go to the LAST page that came up and see what you find. This person swore to find some interesting stuff that way.

If your interested in research though. Find something that you feel that you would like to learn more about and do some research on it. Then try and present it in a clear manner. Someone will find it interesting, or not, but after practice, you will get better at it either way.

One of my favorite resources is twitter. I don't actually tweet myself, but I follow lots of interesting people, from activists to politicians to journalists. A few ATS and ex ATS members. I try to follow people from different sides of the political spectrum for a more balanced view point. I just view it as a way of being directed to information of interest.

I get a lot of info from ATS, but most stuff from ATS is sourced from one news source or another.

Depends how serious you are to find answers and what you are looking for. I skimmed the replies so far and find them sad... very sad :shk:

You want the latest news from NASA? then sign up for NASA press releases
You want the latest news from the Penatgon? then sign up for the Pentagon press releases

Military stuff? Search the .mil sites if your in the US... don't worry they don't bite, only track your activity


Try Office of Scientific and Technical Information, OSTI, LANL (Los Alamos National Labs) archives, Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) to name a few

FBI, CIA, NSA reading rooms fro FOIA declassified reports or CIA - The World Factbook good stuff on oil and world situations


It is extremely frustrating, that people find out about secret societies,


That is why they are secret societies... that is the point... so JOIN one and you get the real answers, because getting information from those who are not members is just disinfo



or discover leaked documents, and post these kinds of things on here, but I wouldn't know the first place to look for such information.


"leaked documents" is a big kettle of fish. If they are classified stuff, you could end up at gitmo
But to get insider information first hand you need to talk to real insiders. To do that you need to WRITE them and ask questions and establish a contact list

For example.. science papers usually cost money from the journal publishing companies... but if you contact the scientist that wrote the paper, and ask seriously, you will get a free copy of the report. I did that with the Mars Methane report for one... and our group was even asked to evaluate the paper. In fact that gave me temporary access to NASA's restricted document database (via a temporary password)





You could just say "read the sources" which is something I tend to do to verify the information I read on here, but when I go onto source pages, there are a few good ones, but most are very obsolete and don't really contain much information, and certainly much less information than is collectively announced here in one day.


I INSIST you 'read the sources'
905 of ATSer NEVER read the links yet demand evidence. It has gotten so bad around here that sometimes I wonder "Why bother"

But more than that Every official document, whether white paper, patent or report ALWAYS has citations at the end. THOSE are the biggest source of info... like a gold mine to a true researcher


So tell me, where are some good places to look for information, any reccommended sources that are worthwhile?


Just did
If you need links you can U2U me or just scan my threads


But I will give you a test Below is the link to ONE paper It is one page long so not a lot to read. I will tell you that there are 10 main key points of interest in that paper and I want you to read it and send me a private message on what you find in that paper. Remember 10 key points. When you think you have it write me and I will give you a detailed break down.

Let's see just how serious you are at seeking answers


www.lpi.usra.edu...

PS Anyone else can try to
Last time I ran this test only 5 people even looked and only 2 of those got half the points


The BIGGEST secret to finding good information is

1) WHAT to ask for ie keywords
2) WHERE to ask that question
3) WHO to ask that question
4) HOW to ask that question

In that order

Then you have to learn how to train your search engine
I could instruct you, but then that is my secret

If you're into delving into conspiracies, Google is your best friend.

Me personally, I use that for research if I need any but for my main news source I use Sky News.

Personally I wouldnt bother.
A quick search found it to be a "pie in the sky" bit of wishful thinking hopeful scenario cooked up by Buzz Aldrin's group of friends.
This document, among many others presented at Space Resources Roundtable VI isnt worth spending any time on, nor creating a massive new conspiracy theory about.

Secondly, you didnt mention what it was worth to anyone to bother taking your test.
Supposing we decide to bow down to you and spend them time looking for the correct 10 points of interest (in your particular point of view), then what do we win?
