I don't post often anymore, but read a whole bunch. I am sixty years old, and have been interested in the UFO phenomena since Junior High School
(thirteen or fourteen years of age). At any rate, I still have a difficult time understanding why we on ATS, for the most part, it seems, are so
bound and determined to prove there is or has been life on other planets. Most particularly as we have to use the government supplied photos.
I am not involved in the government except to pay my taxes, and I am relatively confident that the pictures are shilled out to us to watch us squawk,
salivate, and otherwise be silly.
I understand that our "camera" capabilities are far beyond the quality of the pics that we get. Supposedly, and I assume it's not too far off, our
satellite cameras can focus on an individual person from their orbits. Maybe, maybe not, but the quality is much better than the slag and crap we are
being allowed to see.
What bothers me is the folks who jump right on these things and see statues, coins, skeletons, and such with the only evidence being a two
dimensional, flat, and mostly blurry to some degree picture.
I think that if these are the best quality that is possible, then we need to write to our congressmen, senators, and the Prez, and get them to quit
wasting money on such silliness. I, honestly, believe that the low quality pics that we are being presented with are the occasional mistakes or
whoopsies that happen in photography.
Unless you use your imagination, much akin to seeing Uncle Fred, Aunt Martha, Bambi, or Huckleberry Hound in the clouds, that to immediately call
something a coin, because it is round and "semi-buried" is showing a complete lack of objectivity, and probably setting back the whole life in space
"thing" back a hundred years at a time.
If you are seeing what might be tool marks, then you need to hold on to that, until the picture is really clarified or we get a better picture. It
could also, for instance, be an external skeleton of a previous life form (Sand Dollar comes to mind), it could be one of natures little "anomalic"
erosions, such as I and others have found on walks in the desert or on woodland trails.
It might possibly be a round slug/plug such as are made in the back of electrical boxes for knocking out to insert wire or cable. And these aren't
possibilities that take much thinking.
We keep jumping on the pics and seeing stuff that is later shown to be probably, over-active imagination. I think it might be interesting to make a
committee of knowledgeable folks selected from the ATS population, like Zargon, and others, who have no political or financial reason to obfuscate, to
analyze these photos.
I think I'd rest better knowing that there were people on a committee, who could analyze these photos, some of whom are pro and some who are con, and
perhaps some who are indifferent to it all. Then, despite all the harpies jumping in and spewing vitriol at each other, "It's obviously a coin you
Dumb A**"! "Not it's not you Sh** for Brains"! We might start to come to some sort of intelligent analysis... Or are we too lazy, and willing
to simply wait for others, who might have political or financial gain, to do the work while we analyze the left over garbage?
Just thoughts, and no offense intended toward anyone....
