My point was that the current situation is not analogous to handing Einstein an iPhone and asking him to explain it.No. He'd assume it was some kind of telephone handset, or (shortly before his death) a transistor radio:
In July 1954 the Texas Instruments and Industrial Development Engineering Associates (I.D.E.A.) companies embarked on a six month project to produce a pocket-sized radio for the Christmas market. The result was the Regency TR-1, the world’s first pocket transistor radio. Over one hundred thousand, in a range of colours, were sold during its first year of manufacture.
What was your point?
if we had actual high-resolution video of what appear to be alien spacecrafts we’d be closer. Now we just have low quality video of saturated, unresolved blobs, which basically give us no information from which to determine its nature. Speculation of origins that go beyond the mundane are merely fanciful whimsy without additional, reliable information (and eye witness testimony does not count).
