That worked, thank you.
Now that I have had a chance to look over the document, I can pretty safely say that there is no conclusive evidence, instead it seems to be more of a
summation of conjecture and other "birther" claims which have either been debunked or remain unproven.
The "curved lines" are simply a result of the paper being bent, and the "non-curved lines" are actually curved, he just failed to properly trace
under them with the line tool. If you look at "Male", you can see that the "e" is higher up than the "M". The curve is subtle but by looking at
the angles of the bottom serifs, you can clearly see that the text is indeed curved. The exact same phenomenon can be observed on "Kapiolani", the
first four letters "Kapi" are curved as they are on the curved part of the page. The second half of the word straightens out.
This has already been covered numerous times. The text on the birth certificate was originally printed on a white document. When the text was copied
over to the green and white background, a slight haloing appeared over all of the text. This could simply be a result of the computer copying a bit of
the old background with the selected text (most likely) or it could have been a result of the legibility of the text being purposefully enhanced due
to it clashing with the new background (less likely).
Again, this is hardly evidence that any of the actual information in the document has been altered
Binary and Greyscale Letters
This has also been adequately covered. When the document was scanned into whichever imaging software was used, OCR digitizes any legible text that it
can scan, and then creates a computer-generated graphic to represent it. All of the text would have appeared greyscale at first, but then OCR turns it
into a flat color. The leftover greyscale letters simply were not picked up by the OCR, which also explains why they appear on a separate layer than
the binary text.
The Sequential Number
The author states "The Sequential Number is a fraud". This is incorrect. The Sequential Number does 'seem' to be out of place, when compared with
other documents from the hospital, such as the Nordyke certificates. However, there are numerous possible explanations for this, such as that the
birth certificates were printed beforehand, and then were mismatched and used in the wrong order.
The author's interpretation of this mismatching as "fraud" shows that the author has a clear agenda, and his preconceptions are preventing him from
accurately addressing the evidence. In other words, this would not fly as a legal document.
Different Color Fonts
Again, see the bit about OCR above. OCR tries to recreate the font color as accurately as possible in most imaging programs. The different colored
fonts are most likely the result of the greyscale scan being lighter for those particular letters/numbers, and thus the solid-color digitization of
the image is represented by a lighter tone.
Presenting this as "irrefutable proof this form is a forgery" shows a predisposition toward the document being forged, and an unwillingness to
accurately address the causes of the inconsistencies.
Again, see the bit about OCR above. This has been debunked.
Debunked, see aptness's post above.
This is a very poorly written document, rife with grammar errors and obtuse claims. However, one should only have to look at the evidence presented,
and one can easily see that the claims do not hold water. While they do manage to point out the inconsistencies in Obama's long form, they do not
conclusively prove that any of them are the result of intentional fraud or forgery.
This was written by someone with a clear bias, and I would say with confidence that it has been successfully debunked on a case-by-case basis.
(Most of the credit for this goes to other ATS members who have researched these claims when they were presented earlier. I only went through the
document and addressed each individual claim as they were addressed here on this forum, in many of the previous birth certificate threads dealing with
the exact same issues.)
