Not true. Where else are you going to post about UFOs? ATS made this forum up to talk about both, with UFOs in first place. Quite frequently on this
forum people discuss UFOs even with the assumption they are terrestrial craft. The triangle UFOs are a good example. In reading through comments about
them majority opinion is that they are "ours." And there are some darned good pictures of them, too! The OP has never claimed otherwise and if you
paid attention, she specifically disclaimed the alien idea up front.
In fact, I would go so far as to say the statement, "UFOs does not mean aliens" is the second most frequent comment on this board. The first is,
"It's arrogant to think we are the only intelligent species yadda yadda." We ought to develop 'meta statements" for these common ones so people
don't have to type them all out. Just type "Meta 1" and say your piece.
On another topic, it has been suggested that the photographer was 'lying.' I don't think it is fair to accuse him of that. If you read the
interview with him, he's very straightforward in discussing the shots. Also, he says he's just made a three-day cross-country trip. That means he
went 3000 miles in 72 hours. Hopefully he didn't drive that all himself, but it does mean 24 hours a day driving. I did it once with two other
drivers in 71 hours. That means the guy had to have been dead tired. The fact that he could focus at all is amazing.
To summarize: 1. We all know about Meta 2. 2. Give the photographer a break unless proven otherwise. 3. Pretty cool example shots have been posted!
