You will discover a lot of junk regarding UFOs and aliens...mixed in with some unique content too of course.
The trouble is that some people will believe almost anything in a picture or video, then believing they have "found the missing proof!!!!" they will
post it with the title "UFO over wherever," and then we all look at it. Sometimes it's really easy to say it's fake, but then even still it goes
on for tens or hundreds of posts.
When something that looks more real comes along, it gets more complicated, but the end result is the same.
I have concluded that you get these general things in every single UFO picture or video:
too blurry and/or too dark
As far as expert witnesses, they are usually old doctors at the ends of their careers who have over the years become obsessed with finding 'the
truth,' and convince themselves of non-sense. When they have nothing else to lose, they decide to write a book about their encounters then get
interviewed by lots of younger radio hosts. Some of them aren't even creative and borrow ideas from sci-fi novels like Hitch hiker's Guide to the
Galaxy. (I heard of the dolphin and whale references in an interview just a few days ago.)
It is a very large waste of time if you are not careful.
Eventually I think people start believing in things than saying, "Well, if it's not true, then prove it!"
And then we have the classic case of wanting to believe something because it makes you feel good, rather than because there is evidence for it.
Don't get sucked too far into the junk! There are some quality ones, though.
Also, ATS can get quite argumentative and doom and gloom / negativity. So, be wary.
