Just saying hey.

One thing I must say about the "open mind" is this...

Having an open mind must work both ways. often times it does not, and those who claim to have an open mind really do not. I've seen it happen far too often where people will demand another to have an open mind to them, but does not return the favor.

Many times, the mainstream is right too.

And having an open mind also constitutes conclusions on what the facts say, and not on what one wants to believe, or doesn't want to believe.

Facts don't lie.

People lie and dismiss the facts. Often times because they have an emotional interest in what they want or don't want to believe.

I welcome you to your new addiction.

A truly open mind is hard to find. Most people, for whatever reason, often find themselves locked in to a certain way of seeing the world and approaching conversation. The old adage; you can't teach an old dog new tricks, still applies to even the most stalwart conspiracy theorist. With that said, I see more and more people throwing off the shackles of limited perspective in order to embrace truth no matter how painful.

On a lighter note. Get ready for a lot of "Pics or it didn't happen."

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"...!
