That was never said on this tread. Its obviously you are here to just bash Believers instead of contributing. You should leave.


Are you sure you read the thread? It has been mentioned several times. In fact, page 13(after your response) has someone already postulating that these are alien craft.

If you mean the "reply to" part of my post, then yes that was a mistake. But it was obvious my comment wasn't directed at that person...

And what IS contributing? I posted a comment about something I find is a peculiar oversight in so many UFO sightings that are attributed to extraterrestrials.

I can understand how people are getting confused over this (as was I by the title of the youtube video,) but the lanterns were launched on the 26th. The day before the hurricane bands reached NYC

Contributing is trying to figure out what is being discussed in this particular thread. This thread isnt about what Believers think. Your post was totally off topic when you look at it.

Here you go sir, only took me two seconds.
People in New York actually do let off chinese lanterns! Now, I'm perplexed.
I'm surprised you had nothing to say when I basically proved your point wrong on the whole "who would set off lanterns in New York" theory you have going.

I believe as I have already stated that they are defo Chinese lanterns .However that video is from ( the original
)YORK in the UK Not New York US.

I saw a video of these last night, it was a video with about 3-4 different clips of the same thing in New York from 3-4 different areas in New York.

If someone hasn't said this already or posted this, I will find the video and post it in here.

The title is "UFO's captured over New York Last night 8-26". The opening post is asking what people think. I read a few responses pertaining to aliens, and I pointed out a glaring oversight in their E.T. theory. Is there a posting rule I missed that says you can't challenge what someone says in a discussion thread?

I think you read something you didn't like and are now lashing out at me. Or maybe my wording came off as too condescending? Either way, you are calling me out on something that is perfectly on topic with this thread.

So many people caught them and they seem to be moving in a particular pattern. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Technically what you said is off topic. You said NOTHING pertaining to this sighting but you surely did lash out at Believers

I wonder how many fires are started by those damn things every year?

It is the epitome of stupid to release these things having no way of knowing where they will land.

Winds shift, and a paper bag with an open flame is a major fire just waiting to happen.

I think you missed the part where I typed that it was a RESPONSE (as if it needs to be stated) to those saying these lights in the sky were E.T. Is responding to a few posts dealing with the same subject considered off topic? Are you the arbiter of discussion threads and what people should say?

Glancing at your post history, I am beginning to suspect you may be trolling. If that is the case, then well played.

They are Chinese Lanterns! As an amateur astronomer I frequently get to debunk UFO sightings. People please engage critical thinking mode and search first for a rational explanation, the most likely and simplest is usually true.

Reguardless.....whether it is real or lanturns....it is not proof. I have been saying this for awhile....while I an in a.....position....to know that E.T. is a reality....and that this is a half way decient video....it really is not proof. There has been videos and even testimony by Astronauts that is much greater in creadence to proof than this and you know what it means....NOTHING!

E.T. will be debunked and those who claim contact...ridiculed....to the extent and degree that even something or some event....witnessed or recorded....on a proof positive scale.....still....it will STILL make no difference. Remember what happened after E.T. buzzed the White House and Capitol building in the 50's....it caused mass Hysteria and made HEADLINES such as.....UFO INVASION!

It MADE NO DIFFERENCE WHATSOEVER. It was debunked....explained away....and people forgot about it in just as short a time. This is not so much due to how good my associates are....but rather HOW PEOPLE WHOULD RATHER DISMISS A FACT OR LIFE ALTERING EVENT....rather than deal with it's implications.

People who post here feel that people are ready....maybe the people here are...or think they are....but they ARE NOT! And if people such as the ones who post here are not....imagine how UNREADY....the rest of the Human population is.......they are NOT READY!

I have seen things with my own eyes and experienced things and know a few things....not all of it....but enough. And what does it tell you that a person such as myself now says to all of you....I WISH I DID NOT KNOW!

I consider myself to be a well educated, trained in many skills, experienced in dealing with many different kinds of people and religions and cultural aspects of different societies. I have traveled the world extensively. I have seen and done things that most people would find either distasteful in some cases....or frightning in others....and Glorious on some occasions. Still....I would trade all of my experiences to NOT KNOW.

A lot of you seek exactly what I wish to get away from....ironic isn't it? Split Infinity

Why are captured ufos always at best a few dots of lights ?

If you go somewhere undercover (if there are visitors, it's obvious they are undercover... would have gone public already otherwise) with your car by night, do you switch on the lights ?
Would be kinda dumb huh ?

What makes people think that a civilization that can travel accross space into huge distances would NEED to use some lights of any kind ? We have infrared vision and other night vision technologies already... Why wouldn't they ?

Ha! It seems I missed a post from page 2. What I said was already stated. I guess you forgot to call him out as well.

The Chinese Lanterns I have seen extinguish after about 5 minutes while they are in the air so don't think they will be starting fires unless some fool releases them in a tinder dry forest! That is on a par with the cigarette butt throwers, non-campfire extinguishers and other assorted imbeciles. Unfortunately we just have to survive these folks, at least until eugenics becomes legal :-)

But no one said that these things were Proof of Extraterrestrial Visitation. But if thats how you perceived it than thats you.

If anyone was trolling it was you. But theres no need to argue, the video has been Bunked so im moving one.

Cheers

This is an amazing find! And it gets even more amazing with all the different witness videos that show the same thing. There is something going on here and is sure as hell isnt some balloons or lanterns that just happen to make a formation. I am not saying it is ET, but it is definitely something guided by intelligence.
As for those that want to say that in the event ET are visiting us "Why don't they turn off their lights?" or "They are supposed to be advanced, they don't need lights", stop getting hung up on why they would or wouldn't do something and look at the fact that these things are happening and it is being recorded around the world.

Laturns seem unlikely as I know it was raining and even if it was between showers....the objects travel is not consistant with a floating lanturn...lighter than air....moving with any wind at that altitude. Split Infinity
