Is Science Kind of a Scam?

Is Science Kind of a Scam? NEW YORKER Magazine –

What makes science science? The pious answers are: its ceaseless curiosity in the face of mystery, its keen edge of experimental objectivity, its endless accumulation of new data, and the cool machines it uses. We stare, the scientists see; we gawk, they gaze. We guess; they know.

The defense of science against this claim turns out to be complicated, for the simple reason that, as a social activity, science is vulnerable to all the comedy inherent in any social activity: group thinking, self-pleasing, and running down the competition in order to get the customer’s (or, in this case, the government’s) cash. Books about the history of science should therefore be about both science and scientists, about the things they found and the way they found them. A good science writer has to show us the fallible men and women who made the theory, and then show us why, after the human foibles are boiled off, the theory remains reliable.

No well-tested scientific concept is more astonishing than the one that gives its name to a new book by the Scientific American contributing editor George Musser, “Spooky Action at a Distance” (Scientific American/Farrar, Straus & Giroux). The ostensible subject is the mechanics of quantum entanglement; the actual subject is the entanglement of its observers. Musser presents the hard-to-grasp physics of “non-locality,” and his question isn’t so much how this weird thing can be true as why, given that this weird thing had been known about for so long, so many scientists were so reluctant to confront it. What keeps a scientific truth from spreading?

The story dates to the early decades of quantum theory, in the nineteen-twenties and thirties, when Albert Einstein was holding out against the “probabilistic” views about the identity of particles and waves held by a younger generation of theoretical physicists. He created what he thought of as a reductio ad absurdum. Suppose, he said, that particles like photons and electrons really do act like waves, as the new interpretations insisted, and that, as they also insisted, their properties can be determined only as they are being measured. Then, he pointed out, something else would have to be true: particles that were part of a single wave function would be permanently “entangled,” no matter how far from each other they migrated. If you have a box full of photons governed by one wave function, and one escapes, the escapee remains entangled in the fate of the particles it left behind—like the outer edges of the ripples spreading from a pebble thrown into a pond. An entangled particle, measured here in the Milky Way, would have to show the same spin—or the opposite spin, depending—or momentum as its partner, conjoined millions of light-years away, when measured at the same time. Like Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, no matter how far they spread apart they would still be helplessly conjoined. Einstein’s point was that such a phenomenon could only mean that the particles were somehow communicating with each other instantaneously, at a speed faster than light, violating the laws of nature. This was what he condemned as “spooky action at a distance.”

John Donne, thou shouldst be living at this hour! One can only imagine what the science-loving Metaphysical poet would have made of a metaphor that had two lovers spinning in unison no matter how far apart they were. But Musser has a nice, if less exalted, analogy for the event: it is as if two magic coins, flipped at different corners of the cosmos, always came up heads or tails together. (The spooky action takes place only in the context of simultaneous measurement. The particles share states, but they don’t send signals.)

What started out as a reductio ad absurdum became proof that the cosmos is in certain ways absurd. What began as a bug became a feature and is now a fact. Musser takes us into the lab of the Colgate professor Enrique Galvez, who has constructed a simple apparatus that allows him to entangle photons and then show that “the photons are behaving like a pair of magic coins. . . .They are not in contact, and no known force links them, yet they act as one.” With near-quantum serendipity, the publication of Musser’s book has coincided with news of another breakthrough experiment, in which scientists at Delft University measured two hundred and forty-five pairs of entangled electrons and confirmed the phenomenon with greater rigor than before. The certainty that spooky action at a distance takes place, Musser says, challenges the very notion of “locality,” our intuitive sense that some stuff happens only here, and some stuff over there. What’s happening isn’t really spooky action at a distance; it’s spooky distance, revealed through an action.

Why, then, did Einstein’s question get excluded for so long from reputable theoretical physics? The reasons, unfolding through generations of physicists, have several notable social aspects, worthy of Trollope’s studies of how private feuds affect public decisions. Musser tells us that fashion, temperament, zeitgeist, and sheer tenacity affected the debate, along with evidence and argument. The “indeterminacy” of the atom was, for younger European physicists, “a lesson of modernity, an antidote to a misplaced Enlightenment trust in reason, which German intellectuals in the 1920’s widely held responsible for their country’s defeat in the First World War.” The tonal and temperamental difference between the scientists was as great as the evidence they called on.

Musser tracks the action at the “Solvay” meetings, scientific conferences held at an institute in Brussels in the twenties. (Ernest Solvay was a rich Belgian chemist with a taste for high science.) Einstein and Niels Bohr met and argued over breakfast and dinner there, talking past each other more than to each other. Musser writes, “Bohr punted on Einstein’s central concern about links between distant locations in space,” preferring to focus on the disputes about probability and randomness in nature. As Musser says, the “indeterminacy” questions of whether what you measured was actually indefinite or just unknowable until you measured it was an important point, but not this important point.

Musser explains that the big issue was settled mainly by being pushed aside. Generational imperatives trumped evidentiary ones. The things that made Einstein the lovable genius of popular imagination were also the things that made him an easy object of condescension. The hot younger theorists patronized him, one of Bohr’s colleagues sneering that if a student had raised Einstein’s objections “I would have considered him quite intelligent and promising.”

There was never a decisive debate, never a hallowed crucial experiment, never even a winning argument to settle the case, with one physicist admitting, “Most physicists (including me) accept that Bohr won the debate, although like most physicists I am hard pressed to put into words just how it was done.” Arguing about non-locality went out of fashion, in this account, almost the way “Rock Around the Clock” displaced Sinatra from the top of the charts.

The same pattern of avoidance and talking-past and taking on the temper of the times turns up in the contemporary science that has returned to the possibility of non-locality. Musser notes that Geoffrey Chew’s attack on the notion of underlying laws in physics “was radical, and radicalism went over well in ’60’s-era Berkeley.” The British mathematician Roger Penrose’s assaults on string theory in the nineties were intriguing but too intemperate and too inconclusive for the room: “Penrose didn’t help his cause with his outspoken skepticism. . . . Valid though his critiques might have been, they weren’t calculated to endear him to his colleagues.”

Indeed, Musser, though committed to empirical explanation, suggests that the revival of “non-locality” as a topic in physics may be due to our finding the metaphor of non-locality ever more palatable: “Modern communications technology may not technically be non-local but it sure feels that it is.” Living among distant connections, where what happens in Bangalore happens in Boston, we are more receptive to the idea of such a strange order in the universe. Musser sums it up in an enviable aphorism: “If poetry is emotion recollected in tranquility, then science is tranquility recollected in emotion.” The seemingly neutral order of the natural world becomes the sounding board for every passionate feeling the physicist possesses.

Loren Coleman – The Twilight Language of Elm Street: Mason Road of JFK/King-Kill/33

Loren Coleman – The Twilight Language of Elm Street: Mason Road of JFK/King-Kill/33

Dealey Plaza was the site of the first Masonic temple of Texas.
It also was the location of the killing of President John F. Kennedy.

First photo: Dealey Plaza in the aftermath of the assassination of President John F.Kennedy.

Second photo: Ike Altgens of the Associated Press’ photo of Jacqueline Kennedy and Secret Service agent Clint Hill climbing onto the back of the limo, against the site today. November 22, 1963.

The street pictured is Elm Street – the Mason Road of the synchromystic seekers. I first visited the street, Dealey Plaza, and the Texas School Depository Building in 1974, a mere 11 years after the JFK assassination. I’ve been back several times, as have thousands of others.

Fifty years ago today, on November 19, 1963, The Dallas Times Herald detailed the exact route of the presidential motorcade. It showed the President would be going down Elm Street.

1, 2, 3…at 12:30 on 11.22.63.
How did synchromysticism’s Godfather view the JFK assassinaiton?

King-Kill/33: Masonic Symbolism in the Assassination of John F. Kennedy by James Shelby Downard was published (after years of making the rounds in rough copies and on tape) by Adam Parfrey, in the first edition of Apocalypse Culture. The essay theorizes the Freemasons were responsible for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Part of the theorizing considers the special location of the “ritual killing” of the “King.”

Ripper was popular singer Michael Maybrick – ‘a psychopath shielded by servants of the (Masonic) state’

Michael Maybrick photographed in 1907  Photo: Courtesy of Fourth Estate

After 15 years of research, the director of Withnail and I believes he has cracked the most enduring mystery in British criminal history

“…the man in charge of the investigation, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Charles Warren.

Jack the Ripper was not, as popular mythology would have it, a fiend or a criminal genius. ‘He was a psychopath shielded by servants of the Victorian state.’ More specifically, shielded by the fraternal bonds of Freemasonry. As much as it is about uncovering the identity of the Ripper, They All Love Jack is a scalding critique of the hypocrisy at the heart of the establishment in Victorian England, and the role played in it by Freemasonry. ‘It was endemic in the way England ran itself,’ Robinson says. ‘At the time of Jack the Ripper, there were something like 360 Tory MPs, 330 of which I can identify as Masons. The whole of the ruling class was Masonic, from the heir to the throne [Edward, Prince of Wales] down. It was part of being in the club.’

Warren was an important cog in the Masonic wheel. He was a founder member of the Quatuor Coronati lodge, and an authority on Freemasonic history and ritual. As a young man he led an expedition to the Holy Land in 1867, where he excavated under the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. But not only was Warren a Freemason. So too was Jack the Ripper.

Robinson’s theory, argued with a forensic attention to detail, is that all of the killings bore the unmistakable stamp of being perversions of Freemasonic ritual: the symbol of a pair of compasses, ‘the trademark of Freemasonry’, carved into the face of Catherine Eddowes; removal of meal buttons and coins from the bodies of Eddowes and Annie Chapman – ‘The removal of metal is axiomatic in Masonic ritual,’ Robinson writes, money being ‘an emblem of vice’… all of these things and more were not feverish acts of madness but carefully laid clues, the Ripper’s calling card, in what he called his ‘funny little game’ – a gruesome paperchase designed to taunt the authorities, and Charles Warren in particular. The cryptic graffiti in Goulston Street was ‘the most flagrant clue of all.’

As a Masonic scholar, Warren would have been ‘better acquainted with the story of the Three Ruffians than any other man on earth’; he would certainly have recognised that the word ‘Juwes’ was not a misspelling of ‘Jews’, but a pun on Jubela, Jubelo and Jubelum. The graffiti was not anti-Semitic, but a message from the killer to Charles Warren that the Ripper was a brother Freemason.

Warren knew what Jack the Ripper was – ‘I’m 1,000 per cent certain of that,’ Robinson says – if not who he was. And others knew it too – the information shared on a ‘need-to-know basis’. The man that Warren appointed to be his ‘eyes and ears’ on the case, Chief Inspector Donald Swanson, was also a Freemason. So were at least two of the coroners, Wynne Baxter and Henry Crawford, who ruled on the murders; and at least three of the police doctors who examined the bodies.

Robinson is not the first person to go down the Freemasonry road. In 1976, in his book Jack the Ripper: the Final Solution, Stephen Knight advanced the theory that Albert Victor, the Duke of Clarence, an eminent Freemason, was the Ripper. Masonic historians were among the first to shoot the theory down. And Robinson agrees. Albert was a buffoon and a degenerate but he was not the Ripper. But in throwing out Albert, Robinson maintains, what he calls ‘Freemasology’ was also attempting to ‘inoculate’ against any further attempt to propose a Freemason as the Ripper – ‘the Masonic baby duly disappearing with the royal bathwater’. But the fact that the Duke of Clarence wasn’t the Ripper, doesn’t mean the Ripper wasn’t a Freemason. ‘He was,’ Robinson says.

Michael Maybrick, Robinson’s ‘candidate’  Photo: Courtesy of Fourth Estate

Michael Maybrick was a hugely popular singer and composer in the Victorian era, who is virtually forgotten today – for reasons that Robinson believes are no accident. He was particularly well known for his sentimental seafaring songs, written under the pen name Stephen Adams, among them Nancy Lee, the sheet music of which sold more than 100,000 copies in two years, and – ironically – They All Love Jack, which was written in 1887, the year before the Ripper killings began. His composition The Holy City sold more than one million copies, making it the best-selling song of the 19th century. Both Vera Lynn and Charlotte Church have recorded versions of the song.

Maybrick was close friends with Sir Arthur Sullivan and the painter Frederick Leighton, among many other prominent public figures. Both Sullivan and Leighton were Freemasons, as was Michael Maybrick. He was a member of no fewer than six Masonic lodges or chapters, and was on the Supreme Grand Council of Freemasons, whose members also included the Prince of Wales. He and Charles Warren were in different lodges, but both were members of the Savage Club. Robinson is ‘100 per cent sure’ they would have met.

Cubas Mysterious Numbers Station Is Still on the Air

Cuba’s Mysterious ‘Numbers Station’ Is Still on the Air

Written by Joshua Kopstein / September 16, 2015

On August 18 at 22:00 UTC, I heard a government intelligence agency transferring encrypted messages to spies over the radio.

Or at least, that’s the most common explanation for what I heard.

I dialed to the correct frequency—17480 kHz—using an internet-connected radio tuner maintained by a university in the Netherlands. Suddenly, over waves of static, an eerily-robotic woman’s voice began speaking a series of five-digit number sequences in Spanish.

About three minutes later, the numbers repeated in the same order, but this time each sequence was followed by a digital bell-like tone and a harsh blast of noise, like a 56K modem trying to connect to AOL in the 90s. This continued for about 20 minutes, each sequence punctuated by the bizarre noise blasts.

Then, static.

This is HM01, sometimes called “Voce De La Chica,” a shortwave numbers station believed to be operated by the Cuban intelligence directorate, Dirección de Inteligencia (DI).

To the casual listener, numbers stations are mysterious broadcasts of voices speaking streams of numbers which, in at least some cases, are encrypted messages being sent to government spies.

They have long seemed like Cold War relics, born in a time when spying meant boots-on-the-ground and internet surveillance was impractical or irrelevant. And yet, HM01 continues to operate in what the NSA has called a “golden age” of internet-enabled signals intelligence, and despite historic progress in US-Cuba relations earlier this summer.

Security Theater by Emily Elizabeth Brown at The New Inquiry

Security Theater

crisis-actors-promo-mall-shooting-demoWhat crisis actor conspiracy theorists believe to be fake implies a much more generous view of the real

During the Sandy Hook shooting, a 69 year-old retired psychologist named Gene Rosen opened his home to six terrified children immediately after the massacre. A month later, Salon magazine published an article on the kind neighbor and his continued harassment by conspiracy theorists. Members of a forum hosted on David Icke’s website (the former broadcaster who birthed the iconic “reptilian conspiracy theory”), had mixed reactions. “Some conspiracy maniacs genuinely believe that they can treat anyone as pawns on the basis that they ‘see the big picture,’” wrote one member.  “He is an actor,” wrote another member. “And not a very good one at that.”

The idea of “crisis actors” rose to popularity within conspiracy theory circles after the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting on December 14, 2012. The idea appears to have originated in a post by professor James Tracy on his website, “a forum for news, criticism and commentary on sociopolitical issues and phenomena overlooked or misreported by mainstream media.” In “The Sandy Hook Massacre: Unanswered Questions and Missing Information”—written ten days after the Sandy Hook shooting—Tracy voices his suspicions about the official narrative, specifically focusing on the “bizarre performance” of medical examiner H. Wayne Carver.

Tracy compares Carver’s “apprehensive and uncertain” behavior at a December 15 press conference to his public reputation of being “extremely self-assured” with a “swaggering presence in Connecticut state administration.” His demeanor at the conference, and apparent uncertainty when speaking about certain details of the shooting (the shooting that, at this point, only happened one day ago) are evidence, for Tracy, that the H. Wayne Carver at the podium of the press conference is not the same H. Wayne Carver who made himself known as the Connecticut chief state medical examiner.

It is true that professional actors are sometimes hired to simulate disasters; their purpose is to help large organizations run through emergency response drills in preparation for possible catastrophic events. In conspiracy theory world, crisis actors are stans and stand-ins employed by the government to carry out affective labor during false flag operations. Websites claim that the Sandy Hook shooting, along with virtually every major tragedy involving human beings on American soil since 9/11, was a false flag drill that the government decided to take live.

Tracy does not claim to have discovered the existence of crisis actors, but his status as professor did give the theory some publicity as well as the appearance of legitimacy. He is careful not to say directly that he believes the shootings never took place. He does, however, derisively mention the “alleged father” of one of the victims, whose televised reactions he calls “unusual and apparently contrived.” As his theory gained traction he began giving interviews with outlets like Infowars in which he claims that “something” did occur at Sandy Hook: children were actually killed, he says. The post received over 1,000 comments in a little over a month.

River Valley Myths and Legends

by Jeremy D. Wells

(Note: This story originally ran in the June 25 issue of the Scioto Voice Newspaper.)

The Ohio River Valley is a region steeped in history and tradition, as well as myth, legend and mystery. From the Loveland Frog to Cornstalk’s curse, these stories connect us to place and to events, and help define who we are as residents of Appalachian southern Ohio. In this series we’ll be examining those stories. The ghost stories. The big cat sightings. The UFOs and Mothman and Bigfoot reports. The conspiracies and curses. We’ll be focusing on the immediate area in and around Scioto County; things close to home, or within a short day trip’s distance.
We’ll also be soliciting your input to expand on our stories. If you, or your parents or grandparents, have stories about hauntings, black panthers, or other interesting encounters, we want to hear about them. If you have photos of big cats, the Dunkinsville Angel image or anything else interesting, we want to see them. If you have a Devil Monkey or Bigfoot on your land, well, you should probably call in someone else to investigate. But let us know about it too!

River City Ghosts

Chris Woodyard, author of the popular Haunted Ohio series of books, once told me that she didn’t have as many ghost stories from river cities because they tended to be a little suspicious of outsiders. But a quick perusal of archived newspapers show that while they may be suspicious of outsiders, they weren’t always bashful about sharing their experiences with writers and journalist in the past. Often times these old news stories have to be taken with a grain of salt, though, as with the obviously dramatic tale from the March 2, 1897 issue of The Daily Times that conjures more codger than spectre as it describes the spirit of a deceased school teacher who “condemn(s) it all” as he looks around at the changes over the last 40 years before retreating back to his resting place in Greenlawn Cemetery. Others, however, aren’t so obviously fabricated. Take, for instance, the 1899 sightings of a ghostly child that had folks gathering at the end of Waller Street, in what was then referred to as Slabtown, hoping to catch a glimpse. As the Friday, May 5 edition of the paper explained, the ghost was believed to be that of a little girl who disappeared after a visit with her “old Aunt Bibbee, on Goose Island’. According to the story, “Charles Kirkendall, the barber, and John Minor claim to have seen the ghost at close quarters” and described it as resembling “a big bunch of mist” but with distinct facial features and eyes. When the duo approached it, however, they claimed that it “seemed to scatter and disappear”, gradually fading from view. The May 6 issue of the Portsmouth Blade, however, described the “phantom” as an adult male, possibly the “late Andrew Drennan”. The Blade’s description of events included the presence of ghostly noises, like the sound of oars splashing water and of a boat being drawn up onto the beach, as well as “queer, choking, gurgling sounds… as of someone drowning”, leading to speculation that the ghost was actually that of an unknown drowning victim. However, like the little girl, this spirit had a habit of fading from sight when confronted. The Waller Street spectre, or another, seemed to be back a few years later, as the Monday, July 8, 1901 issue of The Daily Times related the claims of Pearl Judd and Ross Guthrey who “claim(ed) to have seen a strange object along the river bank at the foot of Waller Street” at around 5 o’clock the evening before (Sunday). According to the witnesses they were walking in the direction of the river “when suddenly a white object arose before their eyes”, growing in size as they continued to stare at it. They claimed this though, instead of looking like a young girl in the previous sighting, had the appearance of a “man garbed in white”. However, like with the vision sighted by Messrs Kirkendall and Minor, this spirit too disappeared as they moved in for a closer view. Despite circling the sawmill in hopes it might reappear the duo was unable to spot it again. Interestingly, in this case the Times noted that while Guthrey was “superstitious” and believed they had seen a ghost, Judd remained unconvinced of what he had witnessed.
Other local spirit reports include the May 29, 1901 report (The Daily Times) of a Mrs. Joe Sisler who vacated her “Basham property, near the Wait’s Cabinet Works” after only a week, convinced that “ghosts inhabited the house” after experiencing a number of odd incidents, including being awakened by noises, having sheets “fly from the beds” chairs rock of their own accord and windows rattled, culminating with Sisler’s sighting of the ghost which “addressed her and then disappeared as mysteriously as it came.” Despite having previously “scoffed at the very idea” of ghosts, Sisler took no chances and moved her family back to their previous home on Bond Street.
The Daily Times also reported a spate of ghost sightings in September of 1905. The first, from September 18, reports a ghost haunting the area outside the home of the late Leander Noel, leaving his widow “almost in a state of collapse” with tricks that included pelting the home with pebbles and rocks at night. The September 26 issue told the story of the East Ninth Street ghost which “sets boards to walking”, sending them “careen(ing) against the rear of a house with such force as to awaken the neighborhood from its midnight slumbers.” This haunting, which began during a renovation of the boarding house of Mrs. Alice Wymer, would fit the image of spectres upset by changes to their environment championed by many modern ghost hunters. Mrs. Wymer, however, blamed it on opportunistic troublemakers taking advantage of the renovations and attempting to ruin her business by leading “the credulous (to) believe her house is haunted”.
Reports of this sort continued throughout the early years of the 20th century, with the June 4, 1910 edition of The Daily Times reporting that the “Woman in black (was) again visible” at the 71 East Fourth Street home of Mrs. George Turvey. The story relates how, having seen the spectre the previous evening a large crowd gathered at the home, hoping to catch another glimpse. However the spirit chose not to reveal itself until around 9:30, about a half an hour after the bulk of those assembled had departed for the evening, when Mrs. Turvey, Mrs. Williams, and Mrs. William’s daughter saw the ghost suspended in the air over the home of Mrs. Gertrude Carter, just south of the Turvey residence, causing the younger Williams to explode into hysterics.
A more lighthearted spirit was reported in the December 28, 1912 issue, describing a Christmas evening visitation by a spirit that chose that night to begin playing on the organ in the family home of Mr. Charles Terrell, at 1401 High Street. Despite looking for pranksters, they were unable to locate any, and when they tried to press the keys of the organ themselves, they were unable to produce any sound, but continued to hear the sounds of the ghostly organ music, even after beginning to disassemble the organ. “All told,” the Daily Times noted, “eight different persons have heard the organ play (besides the Terrell family), and none can offer any explanation for it.”
So, as a quick perusal of the archives show us, the history of ghost stories from this area is a rich one. What stories have you heard? What legends are you curious about?

The Placard of the Roswell Slides: The Final Curtain

Special Rush report from The Roswell Slides Research Group


The Roswell Slides second biggest mystery was the content of the placard on the alleged alien body.

Several statements were made about it, some contradictory:

The Roswell Slides and the Truth by Anthony Bragalia
This ‘placard’ is not very evident in the video grab image. However, it has been enlarged by experts and the writing, in red ink, is handwritten, not typed, as would be found in a biological display in a museum.
Tom Carey was interviewed about the Roswell Slides on the March 22, 2015 episode of Jaime Maussan’s Contacto on Tercer Milenio TV. Carey said that experts have been able to read some words on the placard on the case and that, “debunkers will be disappointed.”
The Conspiracy Show With Richard Syrett Apr 12, 2015

Tom Carey and Don Schmitt were interviewed, of the show’s expert presentations, Schmitt said:)


This will be part of the event, part of the program in May, that all of these analytical reports, all of the analyses, all of the main experts as well as the photographic experts who examined- there’s a placard, very fuzzy, that can not be legibly read by the naked eye, yet we’ve had everyone from Dr. David Rudiak, to Studio MacBeth, even the Photo Interpretation Department of the Pentagon, as well as Adobe have all told us that it’s beyond the pale, that it cannot be read, it is totally up to interpretation.So, we truly feel we have performed due diligence; we have done everything we can to substantiate and prove what is contained within these slides, whether it is something of a human malady or something truly extraordinary.

During BeWitness, it was announced that despite the work of a number of experts, the placard could absolutely not be read.
The slide with the placard was visible, and the writing was evident, if unclear.
“We couldn’t make anything clearly out of the placard… several others, who did not have much luck.” – Adam Dew
“Nobody could read anything decisively in the placard, unfortunately. I am sure people will make attempts to do this going forward….. ” Adam Dew
He was right, and most of the placard has now been read.


At the time of burial the body was clothed in a xxx-xxx cotton
shirt. Burial wrappings consisted of these small cotton blankets.
 Xxxxxed by the X.I. Xxxxxx, San Francisco, California.
Could if be “Cleared by the S.I.” (Security Inspector?)
The question then, becomes, how was this not discovered by the experts examining the case in the years of investigation?

More details and prop credits to follow.

    Bragalia’s article as printed in UFO Today magazine.

    I must offer my sincerest and deepest apologies to the Native American people of the Southwestern United States. One of their children, a dead child from well over a century ago, was made a spectacle. Whoever you are, you deserve to be extended dignity and respect. Your people, the Ancestral Puebloans, honored you by preserving you. I played part in disturbing your eternal rest, and for that I am so very sorry. Though I did not seek nor receive any money from any of this saga, and though my efforts were sincere and my offense unintentional, I am making a substantial donation to an American Indian children’s charity and encourage everyone else who played part to do the same.

What About Hilda…


Setting aside the placard for a moment the clear image that Dolan sent to C2C–oops (which I’m guessing the promoters of the hokum weren’t to happy about) was the (first) nail in the coffin. The pristine images weren’t displayed during the gig as promised; they were all edited and in a blue cast–why?! The placard describing what the exhibit was/is was bleached out! Why?!

One need not be a rocket scientist to deduce from the image that it is of a museum and or similar type exhibit/display with other displays visible . . . why were these facts never mentioned from those that had seen the images in their pristine, high resolution condition before hand?!

How do we rule out malicious intent with this damning evidence on the table?

At the moment I can’t think of a worse disgrace suffered by Ufology; this is Ufology’s Piltdown Man, orchestrated by Ufology’s PT Barnum & friends!



“There is also another issue raised by a commenter, saying that the reason why Dew chose to exhibit the Kodachrome slides in Mexico is because he does not own the copyright as the rightful owner of the discovered materials are either people named in the will or the managers of the estate where it was found.”


Jaime Maussan, the journalist who organised the unveiling, replied: …

“I lost about $100 thousand in the event, even though we had six thousand people in the auditorium and a few thousand watching on the Internet.
