DATELINE: Faster than a speeding bullet…
A new history show is mercifully short, only thirty minutes in an age when an hour or more is standard.
The Proof is Out There has a host, a former journalist named Tony Harris, who introduces videos of strange phenomena—and throws it to the various science experts in fields of computers, meteorology, audio, and so forth. They are to determine if the video submitted, and often viral on the Internet, is fake stuff.
On the night we caught it, the show seemed to focus on ball lightning, mysterious orbs (only outdoors), and strange horn-like, prolonged sound recorded in someone’s backyard.
One scientist sees bird wings flapping as a big ball of light comes out of a cloud. It is going like a jet, and we see nothing remotely like wings. Of course, we were not hired as a consultant.
You will hear terms like glitch in the matrix, and the parallax effect. It may be more like the B.S. Effect.
Of course, we hear all the theories—from apocalyptic Biblical evidence to foo fighters or government technology.
The proof may be in the pudding, but it seems never to be in these videos. One is called “doctored,” but most are simply inexplicable. They seem better suited for William Shatner’s kookoo bird show, UnXplained. So, you watch and you consider, but don’t expect proof. It ain’t here.
We suspect this series won’t be out there for long.
