Can you show us some of the research you have done?
That's the whole point of this thread. If you can disprove
this guys claims then great. Just seeking the truth like

No -- It doesn't work that way. You can't say that "I" need evidence to prove that there are NOT a bunch of ships in the Gulf of Aden looking at
a stargate. It's the other way around.
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Me claiming that perhaps "nothing" is happening is not an extraordinary claim. Aaron
McCollum's claim of a stargate in the sea IS an extraordinary claim. Where is his evidence? The fact that there are ships in the Suez canal is not
evidence. There are always ships in the Suez Canal.
Just because we can't prove that there are NO ships investigating a stargate does not add any validity to the original claim.
That would be like me claiming that Elvis Presley delivered my paper this morning, then when someone asked me for proof, I simply reply "Prove
that he didn't -- and until you can prove that he didn't, my claim is valid."
In the example above, it's NOT true that my claim is valid only because someone "can't prove that I didn't see Elvis". I can't argue that "it
could be true solely because I said so". It doesn't matter if "I say so"; Without any factual basis or evidence, my claim is NOT valid.
People can make extraordinary claims all the time (whether they be due to actual lies or mistaken thinking). Before we spend the energy to blindly go
on a wild goose chase trying to find "any" evidence of Aaron McCollum's claim, perhaps he should offer up at least a little
This type of argument -- The "Every claim is equally valid until you prove them wrong" argument -- reminds me of the famous Carl Sagan Essay "The
Dragon in My Garage":
The Dragon in My Garage
...and by the way, how is this "Everyone's chance to get proof!" as stated in the thread title. What if we went there and found nothing? Would
that be proof that stargates don't exist, even the alleged Gulf of Aden one described in the video? No -- of course not. If I went there, saw
nothing, then told Aaron McCollum that I saw nothing, then (according to you) he could simply say, "they must have already moved it -- give me
evidence that that they didn't".
Trying to fight the "prove that they didn't"
or the "prove that it's NOT happening
" argument is a no-win situation.
