Ok let's say i see a classic saucer shaped craft over London. I run out with my camera and get a high quality film, the foreground and background are
clearly visible which allows the size of the object to be calculated. The craft is nice and clear and performs some truly amazing feats, like
travelling at high speed and then stopping instantly. The video has multiple points of reference to calculate the actual speed and it turns out to be
well in excess of any of our planes.
The video camera i use happens to be a film one instead of digital, well look at that, decent evidence on old fashioned magnetic tape. I get all
excited, make a copy but send the original to, lets say Kodak for an independent study of the actual film. It comes back with a nice glowing letter
saying the film hasn't been altered with any method they know of. I then send it to multiple film experts and special effects people, they all come
back saying that if it's a fake they have no idea how it's done. They even show research on how this is a real object in frame. Lighting, shape,
colour etc etc are all perfect, beyond any known method of editing.
My next call is the MoD (Ministry of Defense). I asked for a radar report of the area, if anything was noticed. For the sake of argument lets consider
both views here and say they confirm something was there and also they didn't. Just for the sake of arguement lets consider both.
So i have a tape, all experts can't say it's fake and say it's one of the best videos ever. The disk was also observed by other people, obviously
witness testimonies vary slightly but that is just becuase humans are so very bad at being witnesses.
Now with all this, would you believe in strange craft flying around our planet? I am not saying they are alien before anyone jumps on me with that.
This would not be proof of alien life, it would be proof of strange craft, using technology unknown to public science. It could of course be secret
I am really aiming this at hard core skeptics. To be clear, no i do not have, or know of any video like this. This is a hypothetical question.
Would you believe?
