I guess it is time for me to actually make an introduction.

My name is Mike and I've been surfing this site for a while now. I got hooked because I was finding real news and discussions that I couldn't find on other websites or the MSM. I enjoy talking about things and thinking outside of the box. I find that this is what makes people great and yes there is alot of crap and useless things that come from it but there is also alot of gold ideas.

As a child I always felt that there was a great conspiracy and that we are just mice in a cage running the maze set up by things we cannot begin to understand. I started reading Issac Asimov and fell in love with the idea of humanity and the galaxy actually being an organism that is slowly gaining consciousness. The way he wrote of humans and our history tens of thousands years into the future and how we forget the past mesmerized me.

I apoligize for spelling errors that i'm sure I will make and for my ignorance on most subjects.. but of course I am here to become educated and maybe find that bit of gold I spoke of before.

I look forward to sharing ideas and beliefs with you.. what is funny is most "normal" people think we are "crazy" and people look at me crooked when I speak of this site, its sad the labels people are given to divide us or to make us feel like we belong or don't belong to a group. I however feel that those people are crazy not to open their eyes and minds to the fact that we are all nothing but stardust and the likely hood of our existence is so improbable that we should never take anything for granted.

Well soon enough I'll have the 20 post and will be opening my own threads..

Welcome to one of the best sites on the internet.

Here, I'm sure you know, are some of the most diverse people on the planet..
All gathering on this very forum, to explain ideas and debate points, valid or not.
Some come here with the intent to learn (like me), others to troll or dis-inform...

Either way, I'm sure you will enjoy your stay...

... and please wipe your boots off (of all the sheep scat) before you step inside.

Ok maybe a slight exaggeration, but sorry I missed your posts. But fortunately there is still room for your presentation, so pull up a seat and enjoy!

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, also known as 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 that may be contrary to your own.

* 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"...!
