I want to believe, but like Carl Sagan said ""Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.""

I like how a lot of people always try to bring the hammer down on videos like this, although we can`t `prove` it. Life out there most likely exists, and that life is probably highly advanced. Whom is to say some of these events aren`t real?

Whether the video is a hoax or not, those are some pretty ridiculous methods of determining if it`s real - "we don`t know who uploaded the video" so it`s fake - that was eye-roll worthy.

We weren`t actually visited by alien lifeforms? SAY IT AIN`T SO!

No sh*t, Sherlock.

The author doesn`t have an iron-clad case, and he doesn`t claim to have one. He is merely pointing out complicating factors that the UFO theory has to explain. Alas, a hoax is simply a far simpler explanation of what`s in these videos than an actual UFO visitation.

@madest #1 4 FILMS were posted, no one knows by whom, ok? Could be 1 person, could be 11, no one knows m-kay?

IF the shakey-cam is really a special effect added, then it is extremely unlikely anything else in the video is real either.

I thought it was going to be a frame by frame analysis of the four videos and their discrepancies but this just leaves the things just the same by claiming to show a "proof" that is nothing else but more rumors and claims. So far all we know is a UFO (unidentified flying object), nothing else

The author of this article uses flawed logic to support his definition of "hoax". Then claims he has provided "proof". What has happened to journalism?

1) Not knowing who filmed it, is not proof of a hoax. 4 people filmed it. A true journalist would have at least attempted to contact the youtube posters.

2) The event happened at 1:00am on January 31st. That was a Monday. The witnesses would be few due to the time but to interview witnesses you would actually have to go to Jerusalem, not your computer.

3) The light reflected off the dome doesn`t meet this "journalists" perception of what UFO reflected light should look like? Too many variables to even consider this gem as proof.

Here`s the facts: Isreal experienced a UFO until proven otherwise it will remain a UFO. If the author is so damn smart why doesn`t he simply recreate the hoax and provide that as "proof" of his hoax hypothesis?

don`t you all see? They`re planting all these fake UFO sightings so we won`t believe the real ones.

Wow, people still see videos of a light floating in the sky and think, "OH MAN THIS TIME A UFO DEFINITELY LANDED." I wonder if anyone watches a movie like District 9 and think it`s real.

The took the wrong exit out of hyperspace.
Upon realizing they`d wandered into some backward
alien ghetto they hightailed it out of there.

That`s hardly proof. Makes you skeptical? Yeah. But then again, I was already skeptical, it was a freaking UFO sighting.
