How often do people lie, and for what reasons?
It appears that Chad could have lied when he said "I live in Bakersfield", when in fact the photo location was determined to be hundreds of miles away from that city. Did he have a reason to lie, we will never know his reasons for sure unless we can talk to him.
Does lying make you a bad person who can never be trusted and should rot in hell? Can everyone on these forums prove that they have never lied, and therefore be trusted. What about logging in with an alias instead of your real name? What about making your alias appear to be the opposite gender for purposes of looking like someone who you are not?
I am proposing that because Chad appeared to lie about the location, does not mean that the entire case is garbage. That sort of logic is illogical. When something is proven, then it will be proven.
From this neat summary of How often do we lie to others?
. "Most people lie to others once or twice a day and deceive about 30 people per week."
About statistics: It has been brought up many times before, I will say it again. Statistics is NOT proof! Just because the majority of people may be of the opinion
that the drones are a hoax does not prove that the drones are a hoax. I.E. 10/10 hoax-believers say the drones are a hoax! What does that prove?
As well, regarding logic, the kind that is TRUE/FALSE; if someone cannot do something, then that does not prove that something cannot be done. The shadow anomalies in PICT16 appear to be the strongest lead to the drones being fake, yet it is still not logically proven FALSE just because someone cannot replicate that image.
Again, I appear to be propping up the drone story, when in fact I am just trying to point out that some hoax-believer
sites have purposefully set out to use statistics instead of logic. They may turn out to be right in the end, but at this point, I think it is at best just an "educated"
