    It's just the constant naysaying that's like a burr in my butt

    No, it's not!! You're sitting on the remote! Move your butt cheeks and you'll feel much more comfy, I promise! LOL! And, while you're at it, pass the popcorn!

    I agree. You said all that. However, the following was kinda dismissive, and not in line with those comments:

    That's hearsay, and therefore inadmissible.

    It's THAT kind of language that causes people to bridle. That's the only reason I bring it up.
    I've enjoyed your thoughts on this thread thusfar. I'm sorry you didn't get to enter it until late. I suspect it has a little ways to run, yet, though

    Darn - THAT'S where the remote got to!!! Thanks
    ~passes popcorn~

    Do not chant this unless you tie yourself down...please...It's a levitation chant...start off slowly and say it progressively faster.

    O - WA - TA - AS - I - AM

    ROTFLMAO @ Shotgun! You goofball! I thought you were speaking "tribal" for a minute there, mate!

    OK, fair point. I was considering some sort of smiley to indicate I didn't mean it to sound too harsh, but couldn't find an appropriate one that wouldn't seem even more condescending or dismissive. I suppose I should have just elaborated the old-fashioned way - by writing more. Basically, what I meant was that in a court of law, somebody relating what their friend told them had happened would be considered hearsay and ruled inadmissible as evidence, for very good reasons. No matter how sincere and honest El blanko may be, he didn't actually witness the events in question and therefore can't give a reliable testimony. Like you said, it's a lead but it's not evidence. The only evidence I've seen is the photograph, which doesn't convince me because it's easily explainable without resorting to the supernatural.

    I suspected that was what you meant. Thanks for the explanation.
    Little things like that make the difference.

    While we're talking about the way in which language can make an impression, would you mind commenting on the kind of language "believers" use, that infuriates you?

    I forgot to check James's website and he is affiliated with this group and these guys have this article on their website about those pesky orbs (the site looks a bit naff to be honest, but ignore that).

    It makes interesting reading. I remember James told me that he had submitted many pictures to the guy who runs the website a while ago and they were quite interested in several of his shots, although discounted others as most likely being dust particles (although James insists otherwise).

    ... anyway

    Do you think your opinon would change if I had experienced the manifestations and events directly that my friend witnessed?

    So... any new news on this one?
