UFO Videos Just Don't Make the Cut

Updated on April 7, 2012

Over the last ten or so years, UFO videos have started becoming a dime a dozen. Many have been authenticated as being 100% real and even more have been hoaxes created by those talented with computer and video equipment. As technology progresses and more people begin to own video cameras of some kind (whether they are actual cameras or camera phones), the number of UFO videos continues to increase at an exponential rate. There have been UFO videos caught by respected people of society, organizations such as NASA and random people who just happen to be in the right place at the right time. The question is why is the thought of UFOs and alien life a view held as farfetched ramblings of psychopaths by the general public?

Many UFO Videos are Hoaxes

One of the biggest reasons why many UFO videos are ignored is because many lack validity. Thanks to technological computer advancements people can make videos of whatever they want and make the video look fairly realistic. UFO videos are among one of the most common hoaxes created by people with the abilities and know how to create these productions. Why are so many UFO video hoaxes made? Simple, they gain mass attention by people in all walks of life. News reporters and other media outlets flock at the potential proof of alien life. Your name forever etched in history is a pretty motivating factor for some people to make a UFO video and try to pass it off as real evidence. You also have to take into account people that simply want to show off their skills and those that enjoy pulling the wool over other people’s eyes. There are a number of motivating factors that can cause someone to create a hoax video. These fake UFO videos only raise the amount of skepticism in the event of any real proof being brought to life.

How to Make a Fake UFO Video

Quality of UFO Video Evidence

Another problem is the quality of real UFO videos being represented. A few lights in the sky or a blurry odd shape are not indisputable evidence. These videos are easily pushed to the side as camera glitches, simple aircraft and even floating debris. For a UFO video to count as actual proof of alien life, it will need to be as clear as day and possibly caught with a high end camera by a professional videographer or someone else that is highly respected in society. As unfortunate as it may sound, Joe the UFO hunter can catch the most indisputable video evidence of UFO and aliens ever caught on tape, and the general public will still find a way to dismiss it.

Government Denial of UFOs

There is also the problem with authoritative governmental and organizational bodies simply dismissing or halfway explaining these videos. Who are you more likely to believe? A NASA scientist saying it is debris or the guy that spends all his time chasing UFO sightings around the globe until he gets a blurry UFO video of his own? You have to admit that if the military says it was a secret aircraft then common sense dictates that it is a more probable explanation than aliens. The fact of the matter is that all the UFO videos so far are circumstantial. Until someone finally gets a good clear glimpse, which is bound to happen eventually, UFO skeptics will continue to outnumber believers a million to one.

      Nice hub, but I have another view, that whenever the government says something, I tend to believe the opposite.

      Like the statement, We are the government, we are here to help.

      Happy Thanksgiving.
