This is such flawed logic...............I can't believe you are attempting to make any kind of point with it.
Because there are a few faked bigfoot videos, does that mean all are faked?
Because there are a few faked loch ness monster videos/pics, does it logically follow that all are faked?
Because there are many faked UFO/extraterrestrial videos/pics out there, does that mean all are faked?
The flaw in logic is yours. You are attempting, and very poorly at that, to form a straw man argument.
It is trivial to make a video with a fixed bright dot next to the Sun. For example, the hoax video you posted in the thread which has been locked by
the mods was an example of the sort of hoax that was trivial to make. In that case it was made by some foul mouthed kiddies.
Your argument is called the residual argument. Your claim is that in a collection of hoaxes the chances of the real thing being there increases as the
number of videos increases. Or to be more correct that the chances increases as more and more hoaxes are posted. That makes no sense at all. The
residual claim simply boils down to identifying the better made hoaxes.
Some videos are harder to fake. It really does not matter how difficult or easy it is to fake a bigfoot video or a UFO video or any other crypto
video. This thread is about 2012 hoax videos and one of those video types is second Sun videos. It is trivial to make a hoax video of a so-called
second Sun. People are doing it left and right. Not only are they making these hoaxes, but some people knowingly post these hoaxes at ATS knowing full
well that they are hoaxes. Das ist verboten.
There are many ways to recognize that these are hoaxes. Read the thread and get your internal wack-o-meter up to snuff when it comes to these hoaxes.
