Australian Scientist Claims To Have Photographed Dozens Of UFOs

ufosDust on the lens? Magnetic distortion? Or something else entirely? The Australian writes:

A biochemist-turned-school teacher says he captured hundreds of “UFOs” on his digital camera from his Darlington home in the Perth Hills.

Rob Hartland has taken more than 20,000 photos of the daytime sky in the past six months and analysed them on his computer. He says he has identified a dozen different UFOs including round, square and saucer-shaped craft, posting the photos to his website wispyclouds.net for extraterrestrial buffs and sceptics to ponder.

Mr. Hartland, who has a PhD in biochemistry, said he had no history of mental illness or drug taking and that he never altered his photos, though he acknowledged many people would find his claims hard to believe.

The Sunday Times picture editor Jackson Flindell said Hartland’s images did not appear to have been tampered with.

    It sounds like he’s just indiscriminately taking thousands of pictures of the sky, then combing through them for spots and blurs he can’t identify. Is this really the best UFOlogy has to offer?

    “Mr. Hartland, who has a PhD in biochemistry, said he had no history of mental illness or drug taking”. – And yet the most interesting encounters with ‘unidentified flying objects’ are through certain mental deviations and psychedelic drugs.

    wow, that’s quite a fallacy you’re working on there.

  • http://twitter.com/RayButlers Ray Butlers

    you just used several additional fallacies

    and the logical fallacies continue

    i think that it is terribly useful to observe the vigor with which you attack logic. comes as no surprise since it is clear that logic is the enemy of woo.

    another logical fallacy (actually several). you should get your money back for those “college level” courses

    I’m losing count of your logical fallacies. Can you identify them all?

  • http://twitter.com/RayButlers Ray Butlers

    oh my. the logical fallacies continue. in case you didn’t know, one of them is the ad hominem

    Don’t bring up ad hominem!
