Before registering to ATS, my search for truth and knowledge was a search I took on my own with no one like minded in my real life to discuss things
I joined and I'm overwhelmed by the plethora of like minded individuals and it feels good...though bittersweet.
My girlfriend would always say to me that if its on the internet. I'll believe it, to which I always argued that if I found a new nugget of
information, regarding to conspiracy, extraterrestrial or strange ancient mysteries, I would always do my own research and come to my own educated
I can not take anything I read as fact straight away, it needs to be researched, you need to gain all information about the subject before belief!
But even I have had to have a laugh with her regarding some of you guys and your eagerness to believe anything.
This leads me to my point I'm making here, a LOT of people on this forum who are also on their own individual quests for truth are failing to do
their own research and taking whatever is being told to them as absolute truth in an instant. You may have seen other posts by me recently, none of
which will have been me agreeing to anything, simply because I don't have enough information except an OP "source"
Because of this I have even been accused of working for the government....
I think we are all, to a degree, far too eager to believe, we want to believe. We are a type of people who don't understand this society and in our
souls we question what we're told is truth, we distrust our government and rightly so, and so we will accept any information that makes them out to
Now I'm not saying I don't believe in some crazy theories, I do, but the amount of people willing to believe ANYTHING on here is very
We blast the "sheep-le" for believing anything the main stream media tells them, but are we not the same? Alternative news tells us of some new
story regarding aliens and we lap it up.
Is this the psychology of the truth seekers? The people who want so hard to believe anything that we believe anything?
Predictions of doomsday is our favourite, we don't like the idea of people being hurt or dying, but we like the idea of something like this
happening, ESPECIALLY if it was because the government knew but didn't tell anyone. The theory around at the moment is of a meteor strike that the
gov are preparing for. I think we lust after this kind of thing to happen, not for death and blood, but for the true aftermath. The paradigm will
change, the life you know and and the society you detest will all change and that may be why we have to believe in some certain predictions and
I guess all I'm saying is that we need to all learn not to take anything at face value, we are already the people who question our 'reality', can
we not go a step further and question the questions?
Question yourself, why must YOU believe a lot of the things you believe?
Question your psychology, question your thought processes and question everything.
I do hope this has been food for thought and that you can ponder over this...I also apologise for any typos or spelling errors, this has all been
typed on my phone!
