Long time lurker. I find the subject matter here on ATS very interesting and often-times informative ... or it at least gets me thinking.
I'm not a contactee (that I know of). I don't necessarily believe in the whole "New World Order" thing but I'm not entirely closed off to the
possibility. I don't know any secret or forbidden information either.
I'm not religious. I'm born Jewish but not practicing -- instead, I believe in Karma and that we reincarnate until we "get it right", according to
each persons' spiritual need, then we move on to new lessons. I treat others the way I myself would like to be treated -- with fairness, objectivity,
consideration and respect.
I also am not a fan of humans harming humans in any way unless it is for defensive reasons. Nor am I a fan of hatred, bigotry, racism, disrespect,
cruelty, or ego. It's 2012, and humanity should be beyond such things by now. I am neutral on the subject of gay marriage and polygamy, simply
because I believe it is up to the individual what they do and whom they love and it does not affect me or my life in any way.
I believe that all people can surpass their circumstances and upbringing. Coming from a broken home, where my father was (and still is) a severe drug
addict and alcoholic, it's easy to fall into those patterns of thinking and behavior. That's the beauty of evolution -- we are not
parents. We are not bound to their habits and ways of thinking, nor are we somehow "fated" to be like them. I take comfort in that idea, which
honestly is more of a fact than anything.
Anyway, I look forward to participating in the discussions here at ATS, and perhaps even starting some of my own. Cheers!
