Scott C. Waring is the blogger behind UFO Sightings Daily and nowadays also known as ET Data Base. Waring publishes on his blog and YouTube the most diverse content about UFOs, Face of Jesus and Aliens on a rock, to objects on distant planets. This article goes through the most recent publications to determine if he is a hoaxer.
On May 14, 2019, Waring blocked Lions Ground on Twitter in response to a question about a video where he claims his UFO discovery on Google Earth has been deleted by Google. Inquiries via YouTube and website contact form have remained unanswered to date. This is usually the behavior of the average hoaxer to avoid simple clarification.
Possible UFO Over East London, South Africa
The UFO from MUFON is taken out of context by Waring. In a video of May 14, 2019, Waring talks about a possible UFO. Scott C.Waring says: “Do you see that UFO at the very top of the photo up there at the very top.”
- The title “Possible UFO Over East London, South Africa” suggests a flying object that cannot be identified to mislead people to watch his video. But…
- The UFO can easily be linked to the city lighting with the naked eye which Waring vaguely hinted as an option.
- Waring did not took any effort to study the case while he entitled himself as teacher and ufologist while in the field of ufology a ufologist studies unidentified flying objects.
Google deletes UFO over Cape of Good Hope
In 2011, Waring discovered a UFO in Cape of Good Hope on Google Earth. In a video of May 9, 2019, Waring explains that his UFO discovery has been removed by Google and that Google has used his video to edit out their UFO.
Scott C. Waring says in the alleged video: “What I didn’t know is that Google would use my video to edit out their UFOs that’s right that’s true 100% within a few weeks this UFO disappeared.”
- The 360 photo with the UFO is not made by Google but by Vasiliy Nikitenko. Anyone can make photos available for on Google Maps/Earth.
- The photographer claims that the photo was taken on September 20, 2010. That exact same CGI UFO model was found in a publication of May 10, 2008. This means the UFO has been added to the 360 photo.
- The title of the photo states “Cape of Good Hope ( UFO incendent – www.ufo-good-hope.com )”. Meaning, the publisher was cross promoting the now inactive website.
- Google Earth clearly indicates the source of photos [see example (1)]. Scott C. Waring has intentionally left out this information in his 2011 and 2019 publications.
- Everyone can make photos available for Google Earth, but everyone can also report an inappropriate photo [see example (2)].
Island Size UFO Rises Out Of Water Seen On Radar For Seven Hours
“A triangle the size of a island rises out of the Pacific Ocean in front of your eyes. This is what happened to Youtuber MrMBB333 this week. As you see from the video below, this dark triangle rose up from the ocean and hovered for seven full hours before disappearing. Why? Because the ship cannot enter space when water is still on the ship or it will disrupt their electrical shields and could compromise the ships outer hull if it freezes in space,” this says Scott C. Waring on UFOsightingsdaily.com.
- He immediate put a false claim on it without investigating that this concerns clouds as demonstrated in the video.
- Using hoaxer MrMBB333 as reliable source makes Waring extra unreliable. Hoaxers tend to cover the work of other hoaxers.
An internet hoaxer is someone who misleads someone with deceptive and always false information. From the most recent publications by Scott C. Waring of ET Data Base and of UFO Sightings Daily you can conclude the following:
- Facts are avoided in all publications.
- There is no evidence of real research or at least the effort to research.
- All publications are accompanied by unfounded fantasies.
- Moderate to no source references (links).
- Hoaxers used as a source to compliment publications.
- Avoid contact with fact checkers by means of blocking on social network.
- In all his publications he shows a strong sign of fantasy prone personality. In particular: overactive imagination and enduring imagined sensations as real. Example 1 & example 2
Scott C. Waring is asked to respond and he wrote: “I’m honestly confused why you think I’m significant enough on Youtube to troll? I don’t have Ad Sense, make no money and only have 24K subs. Seriously I’m a small Youtuber. Also, I do publish actual alien and UFO data. I get it, you want attention, fine. Troll me. It’s nothing new. And any attention good or bad from you is still good publicity for me. Like you, I believe in what I’m doing. Unlike some Youtube channels selling us out to make money and passing fake UFO info to the public. Keep at work, but get some focus, Heathcliff. I’m more of an ally than a target.”
Waring gave three examples of viral UFO hoax videos.
“Some viral videos that are fake using cgi are below, they give the public the wrong ideas:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suBp3ai-xG8 12 million views of this fake? Why?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BhJL1O7gmw 8 million views.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q70MrmN8DkU 6.5 million views,” Waring continued.
My response: “For clarity. I am aware that there is various disinformation present on the internet, but the article in question points to your latest recent publications that have been invalidated with facts. You make public claims then you can expect criticism from outside but asking questions is not trolling. Finally, you name yourself a researcher so you want to solve mysteries but your cases are not factually solved as strongly indicated in the article.
Unfortunately, your e-mail does not contain a substantive response to the publication, but you mention irrelevant things not related to your publications. You mention earning revenue through ad-revenue as if it is a crime to earn income and an excuse for you not to address your disinformation. There are numerous professional news publishers such as The New York Times or Snopes that generate ad-revenue income.
My work is focused, it focuses on disinformation, misinformation, but also news. That is why we are in contact with each other right now.
You are always welcome to respond to your publications.”
