Another thing that just begs scrutiny. Claiming you have knowledge that is superior than any holy book in existence. Thats called a BOLD claim. And Im
sorry, ATS is here to vet bold claims. And so far, no offense to the nice lady. A 3 minute video and some drawings do not prove one to throw out all
the holy books. ( and im agnostic for cryin out loud)
I for one have enjoyed this thread. It has taken on a life of its own many times....lol
I think MamaJ, gnosticagnostic and you too bknapple32 bring good contributions to this thread. My thought is that ATS is a website for anyone to visit
and read whatever they want, whatever strikes their fancy.
Ewok, the OP posted this thread, and right in the title he said it maybe a good idea to read, mabe not? Those of us who took the plunge to read it
thoroughly and then to ask questions of the OP to acquire some validation or to understand better of what he was speaking of is exactly what ATS is
all about. Right? To read, understand, if not ask questions if we are interested and then......
If one chooses so, to express an opinion on the OPs piece based upon their understanding of the facts (as they understand them). Ones opinion could
be in total agreement and accepting of the OPs story. Or, there could be skepticism based on ones own experiences and understanding, and they may
wish to express a rebuttal, a challenge. Then,,,,,,
begins the back and forth between members of who is right or who is wrong etc. In this thread, there has been a number of members expressing strong
meanness to others who do not subscribe to their way of thinking. Some members/people are just stubborn, stuck in their ways, closed-minded and at
some point there is no further need in carrying on the conversation with these people.
At the end of the day each one of us can make up our own mind if we wish to believe this story or not. So be it. As I have said before, I have
followed this thread from its entirety, and have found it entertaining, amusing and at times very surprised at some of the reactions, emotions and
down right nasty responses, I simply choose not to go there.
Ewok presented a provacative subject manner. As can be seen, it has generated a lot of attention and input. For me personally, I respect his right to
post this, and I also have the right to respond if I wish, and I have done via some questions to Ewok that he was kind enough to repond to.
For me, I do not accept the story as the way it is going to be, I appreciate his story, but I do not believe it, that is that anyone will "ascend" to
a new earth dimension that he stated would happen on Dec. 21 or 22. So, I came, I read, I evaluated and have made my own personal conclusion.
Nothing signifcant will happen on Dec. 21, 2012, meaning none of the therioes of ascension, Mayan Doomsday, Nibiru, Polar Magnetic shifts and all of
the other theories pertaining to this date. I think it will be just another day.
What I believe? I believe it is important to be the best human being that I can. Treat others with kindness and love. To continue to improve through
learning, questioning, searching and living life to its fullest.
I believe in a higher power greater than myself and all the mysteries of the world and the universe are intriguing and fascinating. I choose to want
to learn more about the meaning of life and to understand my purpose for being here. Life is a journey. Each of us has a chance/opportunity to make
the best out of it that we can. With that said, I'll simply close by wishing you all Peace and Love and have a very Happy and Healthy New
