Don't mistake lack of talent for genius
Well it fooled a pilot with "20 years of aviation industry background" his wife, & kids along with other people in the community. Not to mention Bill Birnes and his crack squad of UFO Hunters.....burned.
Iit wans't a good hoax and it fooled only idiots, not a good case to keep a skeptical stance in the phenomena
also thats the youtube of michael shermer i skeptic that was infamously whrecked when his grandpa's radio started working for some reason on his birthday....
I guess if you consider that a bad hoax - then you must really mock and put down the hoaxes of Rex Heflin, Paul Trent, Billy Meier, Ed Walters, Guardian & some others I can't think of right this second.it wans't a good hoax and it fooled only idiots
So in an era where everybody has a phone in their pocket (plus surveillance cams and dash cams) - nobody can get a picture of a structured flying disc. Yet, we are supposed to believe that in 1950 that a farmer saw a flying saucer hovering above his farm and he had the train of thought to 1) run into the house, 2) look for his camera (god knows where it was - could have been anywhere) 3) Paul's good forture let their be film in the camera with some shots still available, 4) run back outside to photograph UFO 5) UFO was nice enough to stick around to let him run in the house and flip, flop & flounder looking for his camera) 6) and then let him take pictures of it
People can't pull that off now with phones in their pockets. But the reason my points above are sarcastic is because it didn't happen like that. He slung a truck mirror over the wire that you see in the picture. Same thing with Rex Heflin...guy just happened to have a Poloroid camera with film in it. And his flying saucer looks identical to model train wheels - which he was a big model train guy as he had them in his basement.
So I'm not sure why you think Morristown, NJ was a terrible hoax. I think it was awesome and it went exactly like planned. Including the part of Bill Birnes making a fool of himself.
