Hi all,

I don't mean oldest in age, oldest in that I have been a member of ATS for a long long time, and occacssionally chip into conversations, but I have never actually introduced myself! How rude!

I live in Grimsby UK, and work for the local council but don't hold that against me!! I am a statistician as I have a maths degree, so I am a nerd, and as you would expect, have a lot of interest in the science forums. I am also really curious about religion. I find the concept of blind faith quite fascinating, and although I don't believe, I would never rubbish anybody else's opinion/belief in creation. I suppose that I am more spiritual than religious. I find it difficult to believe that we are just a bag of carbon, water, calcium and metal, but can all be so different. There has to be a spark of something that makes us individuals. Whether that is an immortal soul, spirit or other, I won't even pretend to know.

I am also really intrigued by the whole 2012 thing. I have said for years that there's been a build up of something coming, but I don't know what. I am hoping it involves zombies!! I also hope it does happen as I told my girfriend we would look at getting married next year!!! On a serious note, I do think that we are in dangerous times and this year will be a turning point in some way.... Hopefully, it will be for the better, rather than global destruction!!

Talking of that, here is an amusing story from Saturday where I work part time as a pizza delivery driver.

We'd just heard that Whitney Houston had died, and were having the usual conspiracy theory, Illuminati discussions and I started looking for links. Found an intersting thread on here about Olympic Conspiracies which took us to a Youtube video. We just started watching it when this guy came in wearing a t-shirt with the pyramid and eye on it. I think it was actually the design from a US dollar. After he'd gone, the video would no longer play on my phone. We all thought that was quite bizarre, but I am sure it is just one of those coincidences and not something more sinister!

Welcome to ATS. Nice intro but I just can't concentrate on it anymore after having seen Destinyone's unbelievable cake.

Welcome, Great intro - I agree with your view on religion and life

Your talent could come in very useful for the members of ATS I imagine (Your Maths Degree),

I know I have seen a lot of funny maths on this site (and others).

Big up the UK my good sir

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many 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"...!
