    Actually if you want to get technical images from video cameras are created from light sensitive microchips but I get what you are saying.

    You know, for a guy who said it was pointless to try and prove things to one side or another, you sure seem to spend a lot of time trying to prove things to one side or another.

    What's to discuss, you're totally wrong?

    Am I? You think so?
    Then show me. I gave a detailed explanation for my problems with this video you posted.
    "Discussing" it... as I asked you to do, and you agreed to do... doesn't mean simply stating "You're totally wrong."

    Let's take just one single point. Your video - something that you brought on - claims that "gravity" is a pushing force based on the diamagnetic attributes of matter.

    I explained why this is not possible.

    Now it is your turn to explain how it is possible.

    Responding to criticism. Giving explanations. That is what science is about. Telling others "accept what I tell you without pointing out the flaws or asking questions"... that is indoctrination.

    It's computer generated imagery based on real data which had to be processed into an image. iThe astronomers spent considerable time developing algorithms that would be able to render the radio data as an image, by running them against the same type of data generated from known images, to see how accurately they could reproduce the original images. When the algorithms had been tuned to turn the test data into an accurate representation of the source images, they used them on the real data. But as they were observing radio waves, the colouring is necessarily artificial - picked to look good.

    PILOT TESTIMONY and FOOTAGE - VISIBILITY OVER 1,250 MILES - IMPOSSIBLE ON a GLOBE

    At 1,000 miles. the top of Mt. Everest should be 126 MILES BELOW THE CURVE; BELOW THE HORIZON !!! WE SEE AT LEAST 1,250 HERE.

    You do know that lying is wrong, don't you? You do understand the deceitful way the pilot's words have been misrepresented, don't you? You do recognise the manipulative misrepresentation of images that has taken place, don't you? You do realise we are not blithering idiots?

    You don't? Hmm. I wonder why.

    Oh, look, a new video from the guy who posts videos, promises to discuss the claims made in the video and then refuses to do so.

    So may think that this is a little bit... dishonest.

    And here I was thinking you used the time of silence to think about the points of criticism I made and come up with some good explanations.
