Firstly I am not religious and I am generally skeptical about most conspiracy ideas but I feel I have something to add to this thread.
I do believe a lot of orb photos can be rationally explained as dust or lense flare etc, but I also think there is more to the orb theory, after an
experience I had only a few months ago.
In short, we had gone to visit my girlfriend's sister and her husband who are dedicated Christians, and as usual we had a great conversation for and
against religion and the Bible, and then went to bed in their guest room. When we turned the lights out I saw literally hundreds of what I can only
describe as white orbs. I didn't believe my own eyes so I asked my other half if she could see them too because I thought I was seeing things or my
eyes were playing tricks on me and I was a bit horrified to hear her say that she could see them as well! I lay awake just watching them for about an
hour before I fell asleep. This was in winter in the UK so these were no insects but they appeared to move around like a swarm of flies. I don't know
what I saw, but my girlfriend saw them too, so I know we saw something but I don't have a rational explanation for what they were. I'm open to
sensible suggestions but until a good theory on what I saw is put forward I can't strike orbs off as a hoax or misconception.
I don't expect your unquestioning belief in this account because sadly I have no photo or video evidence to back it up, I'm not too fussed about
people thinking what they like but it would be nice to find a logical explanation that we may not have thought of before I can lay this to rest.
One more thought that might be worth adding is that the room was very dark with thick curtains and the white things seemed to shine white because they
were a very weak light source or they were reflecting a light source. Most logically this would be the moonlight on dust but as I said, thick
curtains, very dark room and I don't remember any gaps allowing light in. The memory is still quite fresh as it wasn't that long ago and was a
pretty bizarre experience so feel free to ask if any more info would help come up with a sane answer.
