The other point of view? Is that the one that says if you believe in chem trails you are wrong? so am I wrong when I say you can't prove they
are not vertical and I cant prove they are. Surely you would agree that is accurate. Wouldn't you?
If you cannot "prove" something then you need to acknowledge possibilities and probabilities.
I CAN prove that a horizontal line, rotated 90 degreed, "looks" vertical.
I hope you are not disputing that??
We do know that aircraft fly horizontaly for the vast majority of their flying tiime. Very few can fly vertically at all under any circumstances -
obviously VTOL ones can, and high performance ones like tre Lightening, F-15 and simlar can - but (appart from helicopters and backpacks) I cannot
think off hand of any civil aircraft that can fly vertically.
SO......ther are well knownand common circumstances when a contrail can look like it is vertical.
the circumstances we know of when a contrails would BE vertical are severely limited.
Given that a photo such as has been produced on here is 2-D, the balance of probabilities must be that it is is horizontal contrail that appears
vertical bexcause of the persepective.
You are right to say that it MIGHT be an actual for-real-vertical contrail.
But that is very unlikely, and, IMO, by failing to acknowledge the probabilities you just make yourself look obstinate and unreasonable.
