Hey everyone, been avidly reading ATS for about 6 months now and it was just a little while ago that I decided to finally make my own account and
start engaging in conversation with the majority of well spoken, intellectual people who flock to this site.
As for myself, I'm a Computer-Science major who has always had a fascination with anything extraordinary. I especially enjoy your guys threads on
ancient unexplained structures.(and NO I don't not buy the majority of that Ancient Alien garbage) I feel its absolutely fascinating that knowledge
has been lost somewhere along humanity's great trek across the ages. My personal opinion is that many of the documents and sources containing this
wealth of information have been destroyed by some of the more...shall we say ignorant sects of certain cultures of our world. (I.E The Library of
I am intrigued by Paranormal topics, although I must reinforce the fact that to this day, I have seen no solid proof of a spiritual realm or an
afterlife inhabited by the people whom one once knew in their lifetime, but the general notion fascinates me. I love to read you guys' own personal
experiences, in the hopes that I too can one day experience a life-changing event of this magnitude.
Now while we're on the topic of Personal Experiences. Let me include my own.
About 10 years ago (I was 14) me and my step-father were very excited to view a meteor shower that was expected to be quite a dazzling display, with
many, many meteors to be seen. Our local news channel advised us that viewing the meteor shower from within the city limits may lower the amount that
we see, which me and my step-father were not too excited about. So we decided to take his older Dodge truck out in the country so we can have a truly
spectacular view, I live in southern Alberta, on the West end of Canada, so most of the country around my city is open plain with range or service
roads running between them. After about an hour and half of driving, our bearing was a general north-west direction from the city, we found a very
dark and quiet range road that we decided would prove a great spot to view the meteor shower. At this point I was growing impatient because I had seen
a few already out of my window, I told my step-dad to stop, and we set up our chairs and proceeded to watch the shower. After about 40 minutes or so
the frequency of the meteors had slacked of substantially, and being a teenager with a short attention span, I was kind of ready to go.
This is where it gets weird.
We folded the chairs up and packed everything up in the pan of truck, I hopped out and opened the passenger door, as soon as my butt touched the seat
all I can remember seeing for a split second was extreme light. Not blinding, just LIGHT. I mean it was daylight for about a second.....I could make
out a farmhouse and trees in the distance where a second before I saw only darkness. Now this only happened for what must have been a second or less,
but it seemed much longer. Now I immediately looked to my step-father with a look of shock and noticed that his face was painted in the same
expression. He started driving off right away, and I could tell that he was very nervous. When I went home that night I had a strange feeling that
what I witnessed was not exactly what it was. To this day my step-dad is very apprehensive regarding that night, and he has done his very best to
ensure that no one brings it up. Before I started reading a substantial amount on ATS this memory had almost been repressed, like I didn't want to
Believe it or not, It's what happened, I welcome your guys feedback on the matter.
It's great to meet all of you, I can't wait to get to you know you better!!!
Not an Introduction Thread
The Introduction Forum is for introductions To tell something about you; not to start a thread about a topic.“Intro threads” that are
really “topic threads” will be removed.
Welcome to ATS, it’s time to introduce yourself.
You have posted what could be a very interesting topic in the "Introductions thread". This area is solely for introducing yourself (as you can see by
browsing through other Introduction threads by new members). We apologize for this inconvenience, but its a necessity for a website as large as ours.
After you have managed to get 20 posts under your belt, you can then start your own threads in their appropriate areas.
Strict code's like this are in place to help keep the machine 'running smoothly'. One of these policies is that members need to post their thoughts in
the appropriate areas. I'm sure you'll understand the necessity for us having rules like this. It helps keep all the great threads and topics in their
perspective areas of interest and not all lumped together, making it difficult to find when wanting to make additional comments.
With that said, I'm going to have to close this thread as it does not comply with the above stated rules. After you have managed to get 20 posts under
your belt, start your own thread in one of the appropriate areas as we'd love to hear more on this subject you originally posted.
Thread closed, you can contact me by a private message for more information if needed after you have read the links provided above and
in the final post below. Or you can also contact staff by alerting them here
