First impressions are important and obviously you didn't
receive a good one. But give ATS another chance because
these holiday times are often goofy in all media. Every
April 1 for example there is some funny story going on
in the regular media, or on the internet, that is almost
believable to some. ATS will give you a more "real"
knowledge domain to work with when evaluating what
is real or not.. but like everything on the internet one
should not believe anything without verifying the citations,
references, other evidence.. meaning often going to any
links listed and studying those, or even the library if that
is what it takes to evaluate references.
In any event even with the poor first impression it can still
lead you to ponder the bigger questions like:
"What is reality" and "Is it just a computer program running
on Gods'(?) computer" or "Is it just a dream that we awaken
from when we die?"
Or if you like to be morbid ask "Is reality anything at all?"
Maybe it is just "nothing" and there is no meaning at all to
In which case we could all have a good laugh.
