But I would venture to say that the number of photographs taken
since 1826 would be in the billions. One would think somewhere
along the line these creatures would have shown up by now. In
fact, I would venture to say that they have, but in the context
of a still photograph, are recognized as bugs and quickly
forgotten.

We've had lightning-fast shutters and film for some time now...
we can even photograph lightning itself!

So was the "devil" cloud coming out of the World Trade Center. I
fail to see how this legitimizes the rods theory.

You mean, the next... never mind. Keep it cordial, Speiser.

>They are not an artifact of videography!

And how has this been ruled out?

And what is the definitive rebuttal to this page:
