Hello ATS. Obviously I'm new. I'm interested in most topics found on this site. Particularly paranormal topics as I've many experiences with the phenomenon. I'm a mom, married, live in the United States. I've seen UFO's, as has my husband. I've experienced missing time, have had strange dreams of being taken, and other stuff. So the theories surrounding the phenomenon are of interest to me as way of trying to understand my own experiences. It truly can all be very confusing and terrifying, as you tend to question your sanity the farther down the ATS rabbit hole you go. There are some really wild ideas and explanations out there! Hope to have fun joining the discussions.

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, 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 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 on. Before getting on a ride, you should be mentally fit, emotionally 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. At times, you may learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride, this is a natural and normal phenomena.

*** 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 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"...!

I happen to be of the belief that you will be seeing a lot more of our ET friends in the next few months and may get some concrete answers. Here is to hoping!

Thank you for the warm welcome. I have dived right in. ATS seems to be very active, which is a nice change from a few other boards I frequent. I am sure to have many lively conversations here.
