Here's how the ATS motto is defined:
The simple yet effective motto of our membership is "deny ignorance", which signifies an effort to apply the principals of critical thought
and peer review to the provocative topics covered within. More than a slogan, our members have embraced the motto as our collective cultural standard,
demanding all to aspire to a higher standard. These simple two words have galvanized a broad membership that spans the spectrum from highly
speculative conspiracy writers to staunch doubters. The result is a unique collaboration of diverse individuals rallying under this simple statement
to learn from each other, discover new truths, and imagine new ideas that expand our minds.
This motto has life. It has purpose. It demands ATS members to think.
It is a state of mind.
It is a sense of purpose.
It is a statement against the paradigm.
It is a rage against the mindless status-quo.
The idea of "deny ignorance" isn't a goal that ATS hopes to accomplish. Instead, it's a challenge. A call to all those who come here to aspire to
a higher state of awareness through informed discussion and debate.
Deny ignorance is what we do.
It's how we think. It's how we talk. It's how we listen.
Ignorance is the social disease of history. Is the evil that men do, the reason history repeats, and the cause of intolerance.
We deny it. it's not welcome here. Within these boundaries, it has no strength.
Here, ignorance is denied.
In Hillbilly terms, I just look at our gathering of folks, as those who are willing to challenge their own points of view, basically willing to accept
that as an individual, I don't know everything... to think I do, would be ignorant, and severely limit my opportunity to grow, learn and understand
the world around me.
Am I always right? of course not, on the other hand, Am I always wrong? I am willing to let the members of ATS make that decision...
Sure it's difficult at times, but if the goal is to Deny Ignorance, there is going to be plenty of bumps in the road
A wonderful global initiative, to draw on the wisdom of folks everywhere...
Thanks Al Gore for the internet!!!
