Hello ATS,

I've been a lurker for some time but decided I should join with the hopes of finding out more about certain subjects that interest me. More specifically, extra terrestrials, extra dimensional beings, interstellar travel and the like.

I will admit I have an ongoing internal struggle regarding the existence of extra terrestrial beings as I have personally not had any encounters/sightings that would make me believe in their existence. I've seen many videos and pictures and read many articles and stories but I have so little faith in the honesty of humanity that I tend not to believe any of them, even though I may want to. Anything can be faked these days and folks on YouTube just want channel views so they can collect a paycheck or brag to their friends about all the suckers they fool. I understand that mentality and it's their right as individuals but it leaves me unsure or weary about most things I see online or in print.

The most compelling things I've heard is the testimony of certain credible individuals but even then, who knows what their motivations are or if it is the truth. The bottom line, at least for me is, seeing is believing and perhaps through this site I may be exposed to the real truth.

I live in Alberta, Canada with my family.

Until soon,

Hey Grant, welcome aboard man! This is a great place to sift thru the fluff, and the correspondence really makes the journey to truth a fun and revealing one. I have surely "unlearned" almost as much as I have learned while here.
I don't mind a little humble pie every now and then either, if it is served without personal insults.
You might enjoy the UFO thread in my signature.

Peace and happy truth pursuits

Welcome to the Disneyland for Conspiracy Theorist...!

* Please be sure you are at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward).

* Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride your all on. So please make sure you are mentally fit with a strong stomach.

* Be open-minded enough to know that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might expect, you actually might learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride.

* So buckle up, keep the arms within your comfort zone and have fun...!


BTW.. Make sure to check out those links posted by the Moderator above, they will save you a lot of stress and future frustrations!
