I agree...there are quite a few people on here stating that it is a UFO, and others trying to disprove it by saying it is not and let's move on with it.
This shows that evidence brought against the video are NOT compelling enough to support claims of it not being a UFO. Even the mods changed the thread title to something else.
Really people, I am not here to change any views of thought rather focus specifically on the video. Sure the debating is fun, but that is what FORUMS ARE ABOUT. Now if someone really wanted to start a threat in politics within ATS with certain ATS members, then by all means.
Otherwise, keep the comments, evidence, and case points strong. So far I am not convinced the evidence is compelling enough to verdict a no decision for it being a UFO, and vice versa.

When facts fail: UFO cults, 'birthers' and cognitive dissonance
A man with a conviction is a hard man to change. Tell him you disagree and he turns away. Show him facts or figures and he questions your sources. Appeal to logic and he fails to see your point.
We have all experienced the futility of trying to change a strong conviction, especially if the convinced person has some investment in his belief. We are familiar with the variety of ingenious defenses with which people protect their convictions, managing to keep them unscathed through the most devastating attacks.
But man’s resourcefulness goes beyond simply protecting a belief. Suppose an individual believes something with his whole heart; suppose further that he has a commitment to this belief, that he has taken irrevocable actions because of it; finally, suppose that he is presented with evidence, unequivocal and undeniable evidence, that his belief is wrong: what will happen? The individual will frequently emerge, not only unshaken, but even more convinced of the truth of his beliefs than ever before. Indeed, he may even show a new fervor about convincing and converting other people to his view.
