That was fun. Some pretty good fakes in there; others not so much, but the overall effect was enjoyable, if one could keep one's disbelief adequately
I've never understood the Internet's (and particularly ATS's) acceptance of video as the be-all and end-all of evidence. As clearly demonstrated by
this particular video, pure visual information is easier to fake than perhaps any other form of sensory input. Give us a video alongside
seismological, EMF, Geiger counter, or other, more quantifiable readings from the scene of a supposed encounter. Sure it isn't easy to cart around a
sophisticated sensor array in hopes of spotting a UFO, but a video on its own isn't (and should never be considered) enough, and an EMF or radiation
detector really doesn't cost so much that a serious UFOlogist couldn't stash one in his or her trunk.
Just a suggestion, fanciful as it may be, based on my desire to help the UFO community help itself be taken a little more seriously, in the face of
cunning hoaxes like these.
