Early Thursday morning, an image alleging to show an ultra realistic
reptilian alien was shared on 4chan image board forums. Soon after, the
website went down and the picture was deleted. See the allegedly
partially recovered photo here.
According to a Pastebin about the post,
the original thread that shared the image went online “anywhere between
12am and 2am” on Thursday on 4chan’s /pol/ board, short for
“Politically Incorrect.” It was titled “24489 Taken Aprox 24 miles north
west of Luke Airforce Base Phoenix Az. Lab H4C,” the claimed location
that the picture was taken.

Just for the sake of a thought experiment, because this situation raises an important point:Let's say you (as in everyone here), walked outside and saw an alien moving through the forest. You took a picture of the alien, and maybe even some footage. So, how do you go from that point to convincing other people what you've witnessed is real? How do you convince them that your evidence is real?I've often thought about this. Any time an alien is photographed or a UFO, it's always "fake", simply because this lies outside our realm of experience, so we naturally default to it being some sort of a trick. We're familiar with computers and editing software, so our brains reach for an experience we can relate to. That said, how do you convince people that the exceptional, that the "real", is actually real?I'd be interested in hearing everyone's thoughts on this.
