Thought i open a little introduction thread. Im Lurking around this board for a while now. every month or so i find myself here for the past 8 years or so.

Im a european (but living in a asian country) 27 and work in Education.

Well at first i thought i might be wrong here, since i do not belief in UFO`s or Intelligent life outside earth. I dont believe in most commonly discussed Conspiracies (NWO and the like) but i do belief in Collective Stupidness. I donot like spiritual sharlatans, and people that make a quick buck form gullible people.

So what i am into?

Well i Love Biology (especially Viruses) but mind that i didnt study it at a university its just a rather longterm hobby of mine. I have some educated opinions on the spiritual realm aswell. Unfortunatly i wont be able to participate much in political discussions, that is because of my current location, i dont think i need to say more right


So here i am and say hello to everyone. And hope that my life experience will help to create a some nice discussions.

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 be sure to be at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

*** 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 think or 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! Be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentionally spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & also 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"...!

Well 8 years sounds long but if you just come over every month or so it doesnt add that high. If you think about a website for example slashdot.org i go there everyday and still dont have a account. I guess i like to stay in the shadow and observe. Dont know why but its just in my blood.

The collective stupiness thing evolved trough time. When i was younger i also believed in some kinds of conspiracy. that was before i actually got into meeting goverment officials, CEO`s and so on. I could not believe how dumb many of those people where.

Well, after giving ATS a fair shot it seems im wrong here too.

I have been bouncing between communities for years now. But the same old problem always arises.

Where ever is go the place is overfilled with extremists trolls and sharlatans.

To make a long post short here are the reasons

Racists (in really all directions, except against eskimos...havnt seen any eskimo racists yet, all others...well they are here)

Fearmongerers (People who lie their arses off in order to make people Buy their BS)

Deep hatred of Pharma companies (do us a favor dont buy/use the products then and let darwinism run its course)

Its too modern american.
With that i mean that modern america is just embarrasing. always out to shame others, to be PC, wordtwisting dishonesty, citing fabricated or deeply questionable sources. and so on

I mean i do think its me that does not want to fit in. Its true, i have high (self set) standards. But only if they have not been met yet doesnt mean to lower them.
Fact is. i had enough of this and i will continue my search. If somebody could recommend a open minded community that does not contain the above mentioned things that drove me to leave then a PM with a link is appreciated.


Goodbye and to other newcomers

Results may vary ^_^
