Why thank you Camilo1 for your kind words. It's good to know others are finding value in this style of analysis. Please feel free to add here if
you know of a case I've missed in my posts thus far!
Palasheea, thanks for your analysis, and for your interest! From reading your posts on other threads I can tell you have a passion for this research
also. Thanks for your close attention to detail in the original post too!
Rawsom, thank you also for your well thought out post. Many of these thoughts have also occurred to me during my work in these threads.
This part of your message struck me especially:
"I do appreciate what you are doing and have been done, though, don't leave it to that. You should consider reading all those threads and pages and
figuring out what makes something a hoax and what doesn't. That way, you eventually begin to notice things that shouldn't be and things that should.
Therefore, such actions leads your collection of evidence to become a quality bunch of cases. THAT is what we need."
A few comments, 1st, unfortunately the 'quality' of this bunch of cases is what it is, it's what I've found in my searching. I'm disappointed
myself that the majority of these cases seem to be dead ends. I look at this sort of research like any other science though, I'm here to discover
and test the available data, no matter what those tests may show.
Believe me, as a human that is interested in EBEs, I would have loved nothing more than to see a collection of 'smoking gun' evidence emerge as a
result of these compilations. But as a scientist (or at least an amateur attempting to keep the quality of my analysis 'pure') I'm obligated to
form my conclusions in concordance with the data. I'm still hoping for more 'real' cases to present themselves, but at this point I would tend to
agree with everyone else posting, this data set simply doesn't point to there being clear cut evidence for EBE presence on or near Earth. There are
some cases here that I'm still on the fence on, but you are right IMO, this is where the bulk of the evidence leads.
I don't have an opinion (yet) on how much the data set has been flooded with deliberate fraud, and that would also influence the 'results' any
reader should draw from this 'test'.
When you said:
"You should consider reading all those threads and pages and figuring out what makes something a hoax and what doesn't. That way, you eventually
begin to notice things that shouldn't be and things that should. Therefore, such actions leads your collection of evidence to become a quality bunch
I could not agree more. In fact, in my time researching these cases, I have been reading all of those threads and pages, and YES! I'm learning a lot
of things I didn't know about debunking different sorts of evidence. I've particularly learned a lot from ArMaP. That guy is dedicated and a
special sort of brilliant. Many of his arguments have been the determining factor for me in many of the threads I've researched thus far. I'm all
about learning, and applying the methods I've learned to future work. In fact, you can see the growth of the format between the beginning of this
thread, and the following thread, the Compilation regarding Alien Technology. There is now a new category, for 'Debunking Evidence', and equivalent
sourcing for debunking arguments.
I agree, it would be nice to pick out the fraud more easily, which is why I earlier suggested that Mods come in to add [HOAX] tags to the entries that
have been declared as such through ATS analysis in other threads. I'm still open to this possibility, if any Mod should choose to do so, provided
sourcing is also listed to the thread where we can discover why the case is a Hoax. I'd also be open to a [VALID] tag, or something like that, for
cases deemed to be the real deal. I'm not a mod though, so I don't actually have the ability to go back and change/edit previous entries. I also
believe it's important for people to make up their own minds, which is why I tend to focus mostly on Evidence, and not so much on commentary.
Thanks Rawsom, for sharing your thoughts and advice, I'll take them into consideration on my future works
