Bob, you are obviously yet another so-called 'expert' trying to
argue from authority and resistant to novel ideas.

Orbs as manifestations of the spirit world is every bit as
viable a theory as "dust, lint, and pollen." Who's to say that
orbs aren't ghosts showing up on film? Maybe they are evidence
of Ed's elusive monotreme civilization responsible for the UFO
phenomenon. They are so advanced they can take on a purely
ethereal form and remain hidden from us, but can also become
physical so they can fly around in their saucers and show up in
alien autopsy films when they crash.

No wonder we can never get anywhere, with the stodgy and
prejudice old guard constantly trying dictate what the young
creative minds in the field should believe.
