When I put on my contact shadows in Eevee, there is a distortion that looks like it is trying to replicate a god ray effect for shadows that I don't want.

I added a Vanilla sphere with none of the shaders as well and it still happens

I can provide the file if necessary

please help me!

Contact Shadow Off

without contact shadow

Contact Shadow On with contact shadow

Contact shadows is a screen space effect, which means that it uses only screen rendering information to make the effect, so it is not accurate. Try to reduce Thickness here:

Or try to set up Shadow bias instead of using Contact shadows
