De-Lurking To Say Hello...

So, hello! I stumbled across this site a few weeks ago and keep finding myself coming back. I often find myself sucked into the myriad of interesting topics.

A little about me:

I will likely not be a prolific poster. I am religious (Orthodox Christian- my patriarch resides in Damascus, Syria), and I do enjoy a good theological discussion (but I'm not here for that). Despite my faith, I tend toward skepticism in many areas. I'm a libertarian- but I don't think of myself as anything other than a moderate (I irritate as many conservatives as liberals because I'm such a charmer).

I'm more interested in general conspiracies, the New World Order, WWIII, political news/conspiracies, and that sort of thing. I'm not into aliens, though I find the strange noise threads fascinating.

Anyway, greetings all!

Don't be too shy about posting. The value of ATS membership is in the interactions you get from posting & replying to threads. Oh yea, and membership allows you to skip some of the advertising, but not all of it!

Good luck!

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"...!
