With that in mind, take a tour of the Museum of Hoaxes and get the lowdown on a whole lot of hoaxing going on through history. And hoaxing is still rampant. Recently, "alien" pictures came into my possession with the claim that they were taken sometime in August "on the Florida panhandle just above Eglin Air Force Base." I went into "seeking" mode to get at the truth. Take a look at these:
I make NO accusation that any persons in this video had something to do with these photographs! I'm betting somebody just thought it would be great to see if they could fool someone into publishing these as real, and then they would come out revealing the source to discredit whatever publication the pictures were included in.
Nice try, hoaxers.
If people would put as much effort into finding the truth as they put into making up a hoax, we would have an easier time of investigating the mysteries of this world. There really are enough real mysteries to keep us occupied.
Sing it, John! Imagine there's no hoaxers . . .
