Now that we're done with this Israeli alien let's move on to testimony and evidence.
Eye witness testimony can be evidence but only when accompanied by other physical evidence in support. Problems with such testimony usually center on its heavy reliance on subjective selective memory, ulterior motives and just plain human error.
Still, eye witness testimony can be valuable in informing where physical evidence may be and its form.
Three witnesses testify that Mr. A and Mr. B went into a room, shut the door, a shot was heard and out walked Mr. A while Mr. B lay on the floor dead. If this is the only testimony available then there is only a subjective conclusion that can be reached. If the cops find a gun with fingerprint and DNA that do NOT match the alleged perp THAT hard non-subjective evidence takes precedence over all three eye witnesses.
Yes, eye witness testimony is valuable in showing probability, but, any hard physical evidence rules regardless of the testimony of the witnesses.
Expert witnesses of professional standing can certainly sway an argument but, yet again, any hard physical evidence takes precedence over any such testimony.
Why/how would 3 different groups of people who didn't know each other make up the same story about some woman through the same windows?
Don't know. Not enough evidence to reach a viable conclusion. But what we do know from millennia of experience and research is that it most probably isn't a ghost. Well, at least not Casper with his big barrel of popcorn. But, probably not a ghost or an alien or a disembodied energy orb evolved from the advanced evolution of some cockroaches.
Why would someone with a boat load of credentials all of a sudden make up crackpot claims about aliens just for book sales?
eh ... for the book sales?
... or ...
... the same brilliant intellectual disconnect that happened to Fred Hoyle?
To you the topic may be testimony which I hope I've answered in a crossing post. To me it's grandiose claims of improbable events without the foundation of evidence.
This is precisely the kind of BS that gets too much publicity as probable in our culture. It is the epitome of sloppy critical thinking. This crap story should not even be in the cultural imagination of our species. It is crap.
That must be dealt with before any other consideration.
Sorry to blow up your thread but there are some intellectual poisons that must be countered at every turn.
