i worked at an aiport a few years ago. being so close in distance to a jet at its takeoff was a tremendous experience.
but watching that plane sail upwards into a cloudless blue sky was another experience altogether - if you were to do this, and keep your eyes on the
craft, you will see it seem to change shape, color, and luminosity. its all due to atmospheric and solar effects, and the limitations of your eyesight
this is a quick explanation for one reason i am a skeptic. my diehard beliefs dwindled through the last decade or more just because EVERY year was
promised to be the year of "disclosure". as optic technologies have advanced, photographs of UFOs has become insignificant because hoaxers are
easily debunked, and/or reasonable explanations are more easily determined.
like seekeroftruth (apologies if i am not accurate on your username), i WANT to believe. i am open to the possibilities that abduction experiences
are true, etc., but i see no real evidence. even all those 'bases' on the moon? am i blind? i look at those photographs and see nothing
what i DO see in this thread is that this has become a religion unto itself. some of the volleying of comments could have been between the apostle
Peter and the Roman governor. think about it - solid belief based on 'witness testimony' from experts. kinda like early christians may have
described the apostles.
(i am not disparaging religion, christianity, nor belief in UFOs.)
