Skeptical Analysis of the Paranormal Society

And More Orbs!

Skeptic Hal Bidlack takes a look at an eerie photo

Mr. R.,

Below is a photo taken by my daughter [Name Deleted], whom you met at TAM 5, of her horse "Cheyenne" on the left, and the neighbor horse on the right. The picture was taken the day before Halloween, and is proof positive of ghosts! You clearly see two orbs directly above the horses, and you can clearly see that Cheyenne is reacting in terror! Now, it's true that some "skeptics" would look at that and say "well, the horse is clearly just the dominate horse in that pair, and is asserting her status as the alpha horse over the brown horse. But, those cynics would miss the point of the orbs!

Now, it is also true that the picture was taken, with a flash, in a barn in which the air was filled with dust. And, yes, technically it's true that there are many, many orbs in the picture, about exactly as many as there are large bits of dust floating in the air. And finally, yes, it's true that the horse often lays her ears back and snaps at her neighbors....

But, if you look carefully, you will also see that out the door to the left of the horse you can see the two eyes of a "vertically slot-eyed" alien looking in at the horses and the orb-crafts. So, again, clearly Cheyenne the horse is obviously yelling "hey, look out, there be aliens here!" to the other horse. You may use this picture as you desire, I can only assume my check for a million bucks is soon forthcoming.

The most amazing thing about these aliens, by the way, is that they are only visible in the photo! In real life, they looked just like floating bits of dust! Imagine the advanced alien technology required to accomplish that "shape-shifting" illusion!

(man, it's sad how easy it is to write such gibberish)
