you think it might be a hoax?
just for the record, no, I dont think this is a hoax. The site I read the story on is reliable, many credible sources are mentioned and as LaMa said “It has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.”
I will quote LaMa again on whether this is real or not….“so it is true probably.”
If you are questioning whether this should be posted in the “Hoaxes” category as opposed to the “News” category I would say that this story is “hoax-related” as it is a phenomena that has been reported and speculated about in the past with many causes suggested…hoax being one.
