First off, a 10 year old with a handicam could put together a better "documentary" of the Paulding Light
Secondly - to all the "car light" idiots
People keep mentioning that the cars are on the highway 6 miles away. Headlights 6 miles away are NOT that bright, they're also not that big. The also don't stay in the same place and keep the same shape for minutes at a time. This is a valid phenomenon. Quit trying to blame it on car lights.
All in all, the mystery will never be "agreeably" solved. It's just an excuse for 20 somethings to go and drink beer and make up stories about being assaulted by "shadowy" figures. After 15 beers, these people don't know what the hell they're looking at. Most of the "haunted" stories are just passed down by a bunch of drunks and potheads.
...You make a few valid points in connection to the headlights on the highway and the crummy documentary. I personally have tested the headlight theory and found it to be bogus. However, you don't need to have consumed alcohol to see the light. Personally, I have never consumed alcohol at the light, yet, I have seen it. So although you are right that it isn't car lights, you might want to rethink blaming the entire history of the light on alcoholics. So tell me....how does my sobriety fit in with your alcohol related theory?...kinda blows it eh?

I think we're misunderstanding each other. I'm not saying the light doesn't exist. I've seen it with my own eyes.
The comments I made about the drunks and potheads are in regards to their outlandish accounts of being chased by "shadowy" figures, or any other claim they bring up of "sinister" things going on near Robbins Pond Rd. I've gone past the barrier where everybody parks, and I've never had any of these encounters. The day I piss myself after I encounter a real ghost is the day I'll believe these stories.
