To start it off I've been a lurker here for awhile now, I find this site very informative and entertaining at times haha. The older I've become (I'm 18) the more interested I am in alternative news and conspiracies, while I'm a skeptic I don't find a conspiracy in everything, something I've noticed from posts on here. So I've decided to stop lurking and join in on the action and contribute to this site, at least here I can talk about topics that my friends would just laugh off or just scratch their heads at, say something along the lines of "dude stop worrying just drink another beer/ take another shot". At times I feel like I'm growing up in the wrong generation, I feel like an outcast at times because I actually want to obtain knowledge rather than just accept things the way they are and just push it under the rug since that's what the government told me to do.

So I'll end it right here and say that I'm looking forward to posting here and having some intelligent discussions and learning, I have a lot to learn only being on this earth for 18 measly years.

You maybe have only been around for 18 years, but you have already learned a vital lesson about today's world: Don't believe ANYTHING you are told (especially by the mainstream media), research everything, question everything, and draw your own conclusions. Keep your heart and mind open, and use your logic as a litmus test for every story and bit of information you hear.

My daughter is 19 and has the same trouble with her friends, she cannot talk to them about this stuff because they think she's tripping. They know so little and, what's worse, they don't WANT to learn.

You are on the right path. Glad to see you on board!

Thanks FissionSurplus!

My friends and the generation I live in is sooo focused on only their social lives, facebook, video games, etc. Don't get me wrong I participate in that as well, yet I think of it as that I'm just a spec of dirt on this planet and there are so many more issues to be discussed and solved, instead of just being indulged in yourself and not care. I'm hoping it can get turned around, knowledge is power and power is knowledge.

Thanks for all the welcomes.

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 to 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
