Chris and list,

No need for personal attacks. - After all wasn't it your good self that said about 'dowsing' many years ago:

>>"First off, let me say that all you naysaying dowser denialists need to get off your high horses, come down from your ivory towers and >enter the realm of simple, reproducible, empirical evidence-based experimental scientific methodology ... >

So where's the [scientific] evidence that the video is fake or not fake? - Let's face it, it looks too good to be true BUT we just can't tell!

You need to install and tune up a bullshit detector. You seem awfully gullible. Plausibly explained by the meteorite hypothesis? Maybe to a moron.

Then you need to tune up your analysis skills. And your knowledge of
meteoritics. The video was not falsified, and is hardly "phony". What it
shows is plausibly explained by the meteorite hypothesis. Many, perhaps
most meteorite falls are not preceded by a significant fireball, and
even fewer by acoustics of any sort.

I don't hear many people saying there's a "reasonable chance" this could
be a meteorite. I didn't even hear much of that early on. Only that
nothing obviously excludes this from being a meteorite. That's a
distinction well worth remembering. If this had been trivially rejected
from the beginning, no analysis would have been performed, and that
would be unfortunate.

And that's getting real.
