Well the reason is that even with today's tech, it is hard to film a flying object due to distance, distortion, and crappy auto focus. Another reason
is that most people don't carry $500 Sony HD cams everywhere they go. Go outside tonight and try to film the Moon, you will see what I mean when I say
its hard to get quality footage.
When he said decent, I'm not thinking he meant 1080p, I'm inclined to think, from his tone, that he meant some actual footage that shows something
other than a vague light, and since these mile wide massive objects are that big, there should be various angels available.
your argument about technology is merely an evolved "no one had cameras back then" argument which holds no merit what so ever. Try this, next time
you are outside, stop 10 people and ask them if their cellphone has a camera.
If these mile wide and larger *ships* are in fact real and being seen, then we should only need to wait long enough for a few people to catch a
glimpse on their phone.
A single high quality video is ok evidence, several independently filmed mediocre videos are better as long as they can be traced (dome of the rock
"ufo" hoax for example).
Another issue, as with the phoenix lights, is people see lights in the sky that appear to be moving together, and their brain does the rest of the
work, it's a massive dark object. I believe some UFO show (maybe fact or faked?) did a test with this using I believe balloons and lights tethered
together, actually, I think this was them attempting to debunk the phoenix lights or something similar.
the human brain is quite complex and you are mostly along for the ride, your brain does so much behind the scenes so you don't have to worry about it.
Certain disorders and brain damage can affect these areas, some of which control facial recognition. Some people actually can't tell anyone apart,
for them it's like trying to tell apart dolphins. Some people honestly don't recognize themselves in the mirror. Other people recognize everyone on
earth as someone they know from somewhere, when in fact they have never met. Did you know that your brain only uses a tiny fraction of the
information coming from your eyes? You make think you are seeing everything around you, but in reality, your brain is only really focused on a tiny
section in the middle, so while you are focusing on object A, your brain is basically blurring everything else out. One of the various reasons
eyewitness testimony isn't as solid as some people think. Go ahead and try to send someone to jail based only on your eyewitness testimony. That
witness with some circumstantial evidence is convincing, that witness alone is insufficient.
Our brains are hardwired to try to make things easy for us, this is where matrix-ing and other issues come in, and I do believe a good chunk of
sightings can be blamed on this. That said, they indeed saw something, but there is always the possibility their brain told them they saw a large
silent black craft, when in fact they saw 3 balloons with LEDS in them.
that said, after digging a little deeper into the phoenix incident I've learned that the clear military flares explain the later event, but apparently
people did report seeing a massive craft blocking out the sky an hour or so before the one we all saw on video, and those witnesses say the video we
saw looks nothing like what they saw.
I dunno, whenever someone brings up the point that people aren't watching the skies anymore, I can't help but remember a Tom Green skit where he walks
around a city, randomly pointing at something in the sky until people look where he is pointing, then he points somewhere else, and of course they all
If these events are actually happening then it's only a matter of time before we get something tangible in the form of various different angles of the
same event, hopefully showing a craft not just a bright light.
If I were a betting man, I'd put my money on a large craft sighting being the lynch pin that converts everyone to believers, but until then, no "take
my word for it" is going to be strong enough. People lie, people hoax, and some people will take it to the grave because they got a sick satisfaction
from wasting your time.
