I'm 24, and have been on ATS since I was about 13, finally signing up when I was 15. At that time, ATS was a source of scientific information for me,
I was getting really into astronomy, and had all sorts of questions. I also had a bunch of ideas going through my mind with little to no evidence to
support my opinions, like, is big foot real? Loch Ness? Roswell, etc. The list goes on. At that time, again, ATS opened my mind to so many new ideas.
The pyramids are too complex to be built by humans. I was a huge fan of OOPART. I believed that grey aliens were just humans from the future, and that
a UFO was more of a time machine than a vehicle for travelling interstellar distances.
Since then, my logic has changed, and I accept much more logical explanations for things, many of which I'm very sure of.
For me, ATS is a source of information, polemics, rhetoric, and enlightenment in the form of, "Huh. I never realized that..."
If ATS, to you OP, is too melancholy and bringing you down, you're visiting the wrong boards. ATS is a huge site and should not be limited to a few
boards. We should periodically check all the boards. In the end, ATS for me is entertainment and information. Not something I go to when I'm in any
sort of mood.
