Don't let the moniker throw you, I'm not looking to cause pain, but I do enjoy stirring things up, making ppl think.
I've been on the net forever, since before google. (When altavista was a serious search engine, and you could read 9 digits of someones isp# in xoom chat)

I'm forty, so I'm not in it "for the lulz".(anymore)

I'm also not a typical Christian, and unfortunately don't get along with most of them either. (No offense) By that I mean I take my faith seriously, and am astounded at the amount of ignorance floating around out there concerning Christianity from my OWN "brothers & sisters". (Biblical knowledge & spoon-feeding from pastors/celebrity evangelists.)

I smoke, (going to buy the patch in a couple of days) I swear, I have a temper (sometimes) and am NOT politically correct. No this will not send me to hell, tyvm, although I imagine it does affect my witness. I am human, and have never claimed to be otherwise. I'm not "better" than anyone else.

I have a HUGE interest in bible prophecy, mainly b/c I feel it is my "calling". Even now I'm working on a powerpoint presentation that shows the spiritual things that have happened (red heifer born in Israel for example) and combining it with the political/real world things that aren't getting enough attention. (ndaa, 4th amendment dead, one world currency etc etc) And trying to get your foot in the door of the "institution" called the church to wake ppl up is almost impossible unless you have letters after your name. It is my hope that eventually I will get my foot in the door, and be able to do a tour and hopefully contribute something substantive before everything goes down the toilet.

I absolutely can NOT stand those that "know" there is no god, not b/c it makes me feel like you insulted my faith, (it doesn't & your opinions are your own) but b/c to me it's intellectually dishonest. There are so many mysteries that science just doesn't "get" & no one is willing to acknowledge them in a honest discussion. (I also, obviously, am not "anti-science" I believe science can prove God if one actually unbiased in their research)

I love studying the antediluvian age, I love murky waters. Sumerian, Babylonian, Enkil, Hercules, Nephilium, etc. The connections between the old religions, (same gods/diff names) and how much of that is STILL AROUND!

Fascinating.

I also admit my dealings in the occult as a teenager. Tarot cards, summonings, seances, etc. (And no I never killed or sacrificed anyone, thanks for asking.) This furthers my own beliefs in the supernatural, my own experiences.

I have a wife of 22 years, and 3 kids, next to my calling nothing is more important. I believe in laughter, heavily, my children have grown up on (most) south park episodes, george carlin, (thinking is critical, despite the swear words) lewis black, bill hicks, Denis Leary, etc etc.

My oldest has seen every documentary I have. A&E for 9/11, a noble lie, etc. I believe in history, not our govt's version of it. I don't believe every documentary out there, but then again rarely dismiss even the strange ones out of hand. (I enjoy thinking outside the box)

Those that have taken the time to read this from beginning to end, I truly thank you.

ETA: I also clearly love/hate the umbrella corp. If even my avatar can wake someone up to the cabalists that exist on this planet, then I'm happy to do it.

Welcome to the Hotel Kali, where there's a million rooms and still only a quarter million guests. Here's the key to any room you want and be sure to say hi to those you find hanging out in there.

See you on the upper floors, cuz, with moniker like yours, I'll always recognize you.

Welcome, I agree with you about the reading thing as opposed people just accepting what is spoon fed them. I did the same, because I was seeing so much said and done that seemed so wrong in view of my early beliefs. My early belies and what I was taught by an amazing pastor when I was 13 was spot on.,

Welcome schadenfreude to a Disney-like Park for Conspiracy Theorist...!

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with a bunch of rides, so with that said...

Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret (ATS), the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.


* Please check out those links posted above before getting on one of the rides. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

* Please be sure that you act like an 'civil' adult and 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. You should be mentally fit, stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented.

* Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might expect. Be aware you also might end up learning something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride.

* Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

* Please have fun! But be aware that if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentially spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is not only for your safety, but also for those both young and old on the ride with you.


So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!



Johnny
