Every day in the US, courts decide the outcome of criminal and civil cases on the basis of TESTIMONIAL evidence alone. Most cases don't have the photographic evidence to make or break a case, if there is any photo evidence at all. The credibility of the witness is of the utmost importance. Photos usually don't decide the case, but the credibility of the witness, as deemed by the judge or jury, does. Let this be clear: courts proclaim every day that "it happened" because of TESTIMONIAL, not photographic, evidence.

To me, it's entirely possible that most eyewitness accounts are advanced military craft in testing.
This explains why some eyewitness accounts of UFO's occur near military bases
"And so it was that everything prior to the Civil War in America and the invention of the Camera was striken from history for lack of pictures. As the nation and the world approaches year 144 AC (after camera) it still struggles to define itself having come to realize that all pre zero year history never happened."

It would be ignorant to just believe every story without further proof and isn't the motto of this site 'deny ignorance'?
Pictures are mandatory. I mean, we don't live in the 80's anymore, every mobile phone has a camera and i think by now everyone owns a mobile phone with a built camera. Even i do, my mobiles phone is 5 years old, i use it rarely but if saw something weird in the sky or elswhere, i would grab it and make pictures. So, there's no excuse for not having pictures.
As butcherguy said, every idiot can join here and tell a fake story just to troll or have a good laugh.
If i say "Whoa, i saw Jesus last night in my garden, he was taking a swim in my pool' would somebody believe it? No...same as the 'i saw a ufo' or the 'Ufo Armada over Netherlands' thing that was started yesterday here.

The fact is, asking for more proof when a claim is sketchy and you don't believe it is a perfectly normal and intelligent thing to do. If I don't believe your claim and you can't substantiate it, then that's it for your claim in my book.
