I love this case. It's one of my favorites. Skeptics are crucial in separating the wheat from the chaff so I depend on them regularly here to give me
the obvious answer I'm not realizing. I'm thankful to them for proving a lot of sightings on this site are nothing more than everyday aerial
What disappoints me about skeptics, however, is when they can't prove something, and start spouting out desperate nonsensical explanations, coupled
with increasingly hostile attitudes if you challenge them. It shows that some of these people aren't skeptics at all, but rather pure non-believers,
unwilling to accept any explanation other than the one they believe - which is that alien spacecraft don't exist. It's sad, juvenile, and kind of
The whole yacht explanation was the epitome of this. It made no sense, and yet they desperately clung to it, not unlike what they claim UFO believers
do when they're proven wrong.
Some of the harshest opponents of the sighting on this thread, clearly motivated by a refusal to admit they're wrong, parade out increasingly
desperate "reasons" why this can't be an alien ship sighting.
"It comes every year around the same time" they say. "Why aren't there hundreds of people there waiting for it?" Um, maybe because it only recently
became widely known about this past year? Just a thought.
"Why isn't the military going after it?" Um, maybe because if the military sent out government officials to inspect every reported UFO sighting, they
might be laughed at by their people, or take time away from other sections of the government that they considered more pressing? There are people in
government just like you, who are skeptics, and therefore give a sighting no credence, and therefore see no reason to check it out, no matter how
impressive the evidence is. Also, this isn't the USA that has a government with unlimited resources and are fine with burning 20 grand worth of gas
to go check out something they may not believe in. It's freaking Turkey.
"Why is there only one witness?" This was when I knew how desperate the skeptic was clinging to his own ideology and is one of the biggest problems
with skeptics in general. They don't even pay attention to all the facts in the case. They just make opinions on the small samples of it that fit
their point of view. Even the most passive viewer of this thread would see that the original footage was taken by one or two people who SPOKE A
DIFFERENT LANGUAGE. And that Dr. Roger Lier, who also witnessed the UFO, WAS NOT ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE. That means - yes - we have MULTIPLE
I guess I feel more bad for these skeptics than angry. I'm not going to say what everyone else says: "What, does an alien need to land on your front
lawn for you to believe in them?" But I will say, if you want people to take you seriously, admit when you're stumped.
