Geez Dennis, if I can pull your fangs and talons out of Jim's
throat for a moment, what "evidence" for a hoax are you talking
about?

All Bruce or Jeff have said is that Sanio has found what he
'thinks' is evidence of a hoax. I never got the impression from
-anything- that has been presented that anything -conclusive-
has been proferred! There may be -strong indications- or 'reason
to suspect, but nothing -conclusive.-

Ya know, I was gonna include in my original post the possibility
that the propulsion system of the craft (if it is a powerful
'magnetic field generating' system of some kind) might account
for differences in the appearance of the immediate edges of the
object as opposed to other objects in the cameras field of view
that were not generating such intense magnetic fields. I left it
out because there's just no way to know what kind of propulsion
system is being used and I felt it was a purely speculative
point and one which could never be answered authoritativly
unless we capture a UFO and reverse engineer the thing! I opted
to keep my questions to Bruce centered around evidence of
tampering and the possibility that the optics themselves may
have been responsible for what Jeff was seeing.

Jim's only 'crime' was in asking questions that took into
account the ETs themselves. No reason to drag the guy over
broken glass for it. Your arguement would be stronger if you
addressed Jims' points with logical and well thought out answers
rather than simply letting him have it with both barrels!

No Sasquatch, _you're_ a real piece of work! Jim is just an
honest guy asking (what he believes to be) honest questions.
I've never seen him comport himself in a manner that would
warrant the kind of attack that you have launched. If it was me
you were chewing on however..... well that's a different story.
I've been a bad boy! <EG> Not Jim though, he just doesn't
deserve it.

>Dark Cloud

Yeah! Lately for some reason. I hope all is well with you and
your's Sasquatch. Your posts have been sounding a little ragged
around the edges lately. Not up to your usual standards!

Peace,
