I've known this site for almost a year already. It has really helped me learned to see the way the world really is. It's also helped me pick a career in my life. I'm still in high school and it's my last year and I know i'm still an amateur at stuff. I'd also like the help of the ATS members. I'd like to study Anthropology but don't know where to start? Anyone have any advice or recommendations?
Thanks . . .

Anthropology sounds like a great career path, as long as you're happy to do it.

Enjoy your stay


Happy Huntin'

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"...!

See you around.

Welcome to ATS!

I wish I worked harder at school...Maybe if i'd found this site during my school years i'd be a different man.
I didn't know what I wanted to do other than party and be a lazy $*!%.. lol

Now, I work my backside off for minimum wage. I do like my work though but I always ponder the what if's...
I can't blame anyone but myself.. I know, you made your bed now lay in it and all that.

I'm not really sure where i'm going with this...I don't post that much because by the time i've typed it out, it either doesn't make sense or i've just waffled for ages about nothing and forgot what I was originally going to say.

...Anyway, again, welcome to ATS!
I wish you the best of luck in your career, whatever you choose to do.

Welcome to ATS, my fellow lurker-in-arms!
That's a noble path to walk and I wish you the best in advancing yourself in that field of studies.
I would love to help you in anyway of progressing but I know not a thing of anthropology.
Would you care to explain to us why it is you have decided to take that road, and what about it enthrals you the most?

Thanks! ATS is a road to success and Truth. Well Anthropology is an interesting subject and it also interests me about Human origin. There are many theories to our origin. One of the theories I believe in is that we the humans have had contact with extraterrestrials in the past and they have helped our ancestors built their wonderful structures. By the way would you know anything about Astral Projection?

I hope you can find the answers for our existence, and when you do I hope your brothers-in-truth will have the courtesy to be your audience!

And yes, I have some information. Some would say you enter a realm between the living and dead, where you also become an observer unbound by the laws of the physical plane we live on now. Though the closest way I could come to explain it, if you ever seen Dragon Ball Z they had a thing called the hyperbolic time chamber where a day could be a year, a minute a month and so on. Some people report that leaving your physical body leaves your body open for possession which is not true. Though it does open up doors that are almost impossible close at least for a mortal man, per se. I've even heard differing reports saying that time travel may be possible through astral projection though I'm not to particularly inept in such matters as the last time I did, it was almost as if I was in the process of designing a video game and some man led me through a hole in a ground and I appeared in a dormitory. If you are spiritually lifted, the astral realm will test you.
