UFO Photo Debate!

Posted in UFOs with tags , , , , , on August 26, 2010 by ghostradioworld

A recent UFO debate has been firing up ‘net UFO mavens.  And it’s been started by an unlikely source.  Political columnist David Corn.  Here’s the meat of his argument:

In recent years, the world has exploded with photographic and video equipment. There are about 5 billion cellphones  in circulation throughout the world — many, if not most, equipped with still and/or video cameras. (The number of mobile broadband subscriptions will probably top a billion globally this year.) And there are millions, if not billions, of easy-to-use video cameras in circulation, as well as billions of still-picture cameras. Essentially, billions of people are able to snap or otherwise shoot the least bit interesting thing that happens at a moment’s notice.

You can read his full column here.

Lee Speigel wasn’t too impressed with this old point.  And offers a complex step-by-step critique of Corn’s hoary argument.   You can read his full article here.  But the he sums it up well here:

So, to Corn and other skeptics out there who claim there has never been any real photographic evidence about UFOs — especially with the help of today’s ultra-megapixel optical zoom-laden accessories — I say step backward in time and re-examine the evidence that’s been sitting there for decades.

We’re glad Speigel took the time to write the detailed piece, but we doubt Corn (or those like him) will be impressed.  We’d love to hear your thoughts on this argument.  Comment below!
