That mindset is evident in all walks of life...
See two posts up the person who's mood is "prayerful" saying that they are grasping at straws to prove birds are descendants of dinosaurs...
I mean, what more do you need? They have linked chickens and tyrannasaurs through genetics directly!

Anyhow yeah, skeptics can be the same way. This mindset also is evident on both sides of the religious issue.

To shorten an otherwise long post, I'll say that I agree.

Regardless of it probably being a hawk -

I nearly # my PANTS when it first opened its mouth!

Hmmm, truly interesting. But, ever heard about "the will-to-deny"? "... Their want to find confirmation of their denegation is so strong they will cling to anything, despite all evidence to the contrary.”

See? Isn't it amazing? Just change 1 word and it becomes the truth.


P.S. Would love to continue the discussion, but I must leave ATS now, sorry.

I feel like I've just drunk an 80 proof bottle of scotch after reading this thread.

Honestly, 6 pages about a bloody bird!

Sometimes these silly threads are fun too.
Sometimes, for me anyhow, it is fun to talk about stuff that doesn't seem so hyper-critical.
Doom and Gloom abounds on this site.

I like these threads because we get to poke fun of the folks with... ummm... lesser amounts of critical thinking skills. (Trying to find a way to word that nicely
)

The heck, then just leave the thread and stop destroying the discussion and bothering the ones who are interested in the subject!! Are you deciding what may be discussed?

And, I hate to break it to you, but this is a conspiracy website.

Its definetly of the nighthawk family. They are a species of bird relatively common throughout north and south america. They eat only on the fly, meaning they have to eat while flying around in midair. They fly around looking like large bats in the evening sky, sometimes around streetlights catching moths and other large insects. They are also migratory and are some of the first birds to head south in the fall, mainly due to the decrease in the insect population. I actually had one of these stuck in my place of employment flying around the rafters. We finally opened a skylight so it could fly out. Cool bird, everyone I work with the it was a raptor of some kind. But they are simply a fast flying, LARGE mouthed, odd looking bird...very much of this earth.

Here is some photos I took of a family of these things living in my back yard.

Frogmouths / Nighthawks etc. Same difference.

Oh look, I discovered a reptilian witch species!










Oh noes! It's a new reptilian-bird-thingy that came about because we are headed towards Nibiru and the year 2012. ZOMG!

You're right it is a conspiracy site not www.birdforum.net

Here's an idea, maybe post the video over there and see what all the bird experts have to say about it.

Then again, I doubt a forum full of trained Ornithologists won't deter you from believing whatever the hell you believe it is anyway.

Gotta love the logic behind the perpetual debunker coming into the crypto forum and telling reminding people that this is a conspiracy theory site.


Not to flame you chadwickus, but you don't seem to buy conspiracy theories anyhow. So why should it matter to you when all you do is debunk each topic you encounter?

In an effort to not be completely off topic, I'll reiterate that the animal in the video is a NightHawk.

I think these folks should have been aware of this as I am almost certain it is indigenous to those parts.

Why are they feigning ignorance?

They are probably active on ATS

I don't debunk anything, I just give my opinion and share whatever knowledge I may have.

denying ignorance and all.

This thread is quite a good example of the amount of ignorance.

For the record, I do believe in many conspiracy theories, I'm just not gonna dive in and accept all of it.




Oh and I haven't come in here to debunk, in fact I suggested someone post the vid to a bird forum, make use of their expertise.

Sorry if that's somehow ironic to you...

Fair enough. Maybe I've just missed your posts in which you actually share the same opinions with the believers of the topic at hand...
I don't mean any offense. Please don't take it that way.


Also, I agree with you that the vid should be linked to a bird forum. That would be the first place I would have taken it. I wouldn't have screamed that it is a dragon, or whatever... But hey, if they had done that, then I wouldn't have had as many laughs as I've had over this thread.

Nah no offense, it's hard for me not to be skeptical, like Moulder says, "I want to believe"

As for it being a good laugh, gotta agree, we all need those eye rolling moments.

I believe in the Bible. And i am sorry but I still think that bird looks reptilian. Also if you believe in the Bible it does talk about dinosaurs. It is called Leviathan. Since they have also found a link between chickens and dinos, There was a three foot tall long legged dino that is related to the chicken. That bird is possible.

Yes, the bird is possible - it's called a Frogmouth.

Before reaching for the improbable, try examining the common, the probable. Before jumping into the realm of paranormal, take a stroll in the normal and go visit Swope Park Zoo. It’s only about an hour away from you.
There, they have birds just like what you saw in the video.

For the non-spanish speakers...

They initially thought it was a with (hahahaha Oh, Mexico...) they reported it to the police and they sent someone from the city zoo to investigate... they describe it as an "unknown bird", but they don't say what is it...

They just caught the bird out of the city and freed it in the woods...

Not much to say... for those who say it's fake, that's from a local news program, they don't fake it...
