i could waste more time furthering this argument, but seeing how easy it is for people to completely ignore the flight paths, how difficult it seems
to be for people to comprehend those flight paths, i feel this is going nowhere.
I didn't ignore the flight paths, I even specifically talked about them.
I'm not sure about it (I didn't watch the video this time, only when LunaCognita posted it originally), but I think that all changes in direction of
the flight paths are from a generally moving up to a generally moving down direction, without any change from down to up, and that, to me, doesn't
show a sign of intelligent control, it shows more the result of an external force acting on those objects.
As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.
you have me making more effort to invalidate your point then you are making to validate your own, this is why i will not participate in this any
further then this last post. it is a waste of my time.
with your assertion in mind i rewatched the video specifically looking this time for any flight paths that turn from downward to upward, with 1 watch
with such assertion in mind i easily spotted 2 such examples.
at 7:24 you see one on the right side of the screen turn from an upward trajectory to a downward trajectory and then turn around again heading back
at 8:35 you see one on the right edge of the screen come in from off screen with a downward trajectory it turns upwards and continues its path. you
can see it again at 8:55
also on this point, whether the majority turns from up to down is completely irrelevant, it proves nothing, if what we are seeing was ice particles
being hit by a thruster causing their change in course ALL the particles would change into the SAME course and they would do so abruptly. instead we
see particles turning to the left of the screen, the right of the screen, the top of the screen, the bottom of the screen, all 4 corners of the
screen, some continuing straight along without alteration at all, and even a few that make single little corkscrew rotations in their path before
continuing right along the same trajectory, and they all do so gently with arching curves, not what we would expect at all from light little ice
particles being hit by a thruster.
and you say you havent watched the video since it was first posted which was in Jun 29, 2009...........
this just exemplifies what im saying, your so set in your belief you wouldnt even spend the time to watch the video once more before making your
statements to verify they were accurate.
why should i bother debating something with someone who makes so little effort to even verify their own statements before making them, i see this same
behavior from the entire "ice particle" crowd here. which is why i regret even bothering to post in this thread, waste of time..
there is nothing on this earth that can be typed in this thread which will alter the opinions of any of its participants, i know no more valid a
definition of a waste of time.
