About NearDeathExperiments.com Mission Statement:
Our goal here is to promote responsible discussion and enlightenment on survival preparations in a friendly, fun and educational atmosphere. We hope to build an unsurpassed level of information and camaraderie in our survival community so that we increase everyone’s survival potential. We do realize that the kinds of topics that we promote here can often result in one being labeled negatively as a “survivalist”; however, regardless of the stereotypes that we may be insulted with or the social stigma that may result, we still feel that at this particular time in our history, these discussions are very important and a very necessary component to being a responsible human being. With that in mind, it is important to strive to take these topics as seriously as we can and make sure that we act with honor, integrity and respect when we share information, opinions and advice.
What we are is a group of people that take personal responsibility for our own progress and survival. We will not be waiting for the government teat to sustain us, nor will we be waiting for the National Guard or the FEMA trucks to arrive when the dust settles. No, we will boldly go out and do as we must to survive and also to help others if we can. What we are not, is bent on violently overthrowing the government, we are not stereotypically overweight recluses hiding out in the hills of Montana caching machine guns and explosives in preparations for ‘the rebellion’; and as such, we will not oblige discussion that moves in that direction. While I personally do believe that we do have many serious problems within our government and that our rights, particularly our Second and Fourth Amendment rights, are being encroached upon every day, this is not the place to discuss such topics as a means to incite a riot or rebellion. I’m a normal guy. I have a nice job, a family, friends, a wonderful woman and I pay my taxes, I’m not out to take up arms and take on the world, I simply want to survive it well enough to make it back home every night to enjoy the things I hold dear.
Make no mistake, impending doom is not always on our doorstep and we won’t engage in fear mongering here just to turn up the popularity and acceptance of our discussions, but the precursors for some serious situations are currently all warmed up and just waiting for the right time to blow up in our collective faces. It is an increasing possibility that we will be faced with another natural disaster, terrorist attack, civil unrest or general situation of chaos in the near future and that calls for preparing to weather the storm so to speak.
So where do you come in? Well, this is entirely up to you. Stop by, infect us with your wisdom or glean countless tidbits of intelligence from some of our more knowledgeable members. What you get from this site, and what you put in is in your hands, all that we ask is that whatever you do, you act with honor, integrity and respect and strive to improve the quality of information that every member has at their disposal while spending time here with us. We believe in survival, and in order for an entity to survive in current and future conditions, it must be able to avoid, adapt, prepare, endure and improvise. It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change – Survival according to Darwinism.
