one reason i decided to join ATS is because i'm completely fed up with being labelled a conspiracy theorist on christian forums for nearly a decade. how ironic the folks who say they believe there's a plan greater than the sum total of all men refuse to accept anything other than the accidental view of history! *sigh*

though certainly open to discussion of my faith when, and if, appropriate, i'm not here to proselytize.

no, just looking forward to reading the threads, and maybe participating wherever hegel and alinsky are the ones marginalized for a change (< pun not intended but cool! ha.)

Welcome.

You surely chose the best place to express your opinions.

Be careful though, even on here, there are a huge difference of opinions, but, you will also find many like minded individuals.

Wish you the best!

i guess i'll add a few things.
i'm not bashing my christian friends. if you're a christian reading this, and you're here at ATS you probably know exactly what i'm talking about.

i've found some of the forums for the christian community have questionable admin/mod teams - astonishingly, subjects which should be not only open for discussion but well known are shut out and shut down. this was very perplexing at first, but of course its to be expected.

and over time it became clear, interestingly, that the course of any debate on so-called controversial subjects is thoroughly predictable....from the very start. just goes to show how easy social engineering has been.

the differences of opinions is what i'm interested in!

thanks again.

Christie, very shortly a moderator will come by to welcome you and give you all the T&C's for the site.

We are a very diverse group here, but you will find brilliant minds, and varying opinions from all walks of life. Sometimes conversations get a bit heated, and sometimes, a person oversteps the bounds, but we are all held to the same standard, and respecting others opinions is definitely where it is at.

Welcome to ATS. BT

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"...!
