p101 says that I am operating on an opinion or popular media belief in the Roswell myth. Which is pretty funny, considering that we humans all have an opinion on any given topic one way or the other. It seems as though p101 is content to ridicule those who have contradictory beliefs to his own, which is fine. Not everyone will agree on topics especially ones as controversially debated as the "Roswell incident" as it is referred to. I could spend hours upon hours finding documents online and doing the point by point debate much like p101 does well. I very rarely post on here and when I do, it is simply for fun and discussing of these unexplained mysteries[which is the point of this forum, is it not?]. I liken Mr. P101 to a scientific debate team leader, he loves the being the guy who knows everything, despite the fact that much of us are operating under our own set of beliefs. Which in itself makes the ridiculing thing quite childish.
I will say this as well, to dismiss guys like George Knapp, Philip Corso, Jesse Marcel, and Stanton Friedman is quite oblivious and ignorant. These guys had direct knowledge of the actual events[Marcel and Corso] and the others like Knapp & Friedman have spent considerable amounts of time researching this topic. Just read "The Day After Roswell" by Philip Corso or "Alien Agenda" by Jim Marrs. These books offer not only circumstantial evidence that the Roswell event was indeed a UFO related happening, but also compile the best of UFO sightings and abductions and other topics related to the overall scope of everything that ties back into Roswell. And last, but not least, is J. Allen Hynek. He was the governments researcher into all of these UFO cases on Project Blue Book who went in as an admitted skeptic and became a believer. He seen these cases up close and personally investigated them as they happened. How do you explain an admitted skeptic like Hynek becoming a believer? No, that does not support Roswell that Mr. Hynek believed there was something to the phenomena, but it does tie back into the event indirectly. It all started with Kenneth Arnold and Roswell. Those were the two main events that started the UFO field of research. And I'm quite sure p101 will counter that Hynek was a nut or that his research didn't matter or whatever the counterpoint may be. The mere fact that we have multiple investigators doing independent research and coming up with similar results is telling. To keep dismissing all of the circumstantial evidence on Roswell and other UFO incidents is quite arrogant and contrary to finding the truth, whatever that may be.
Let me first of all say CB, that I also find there are often too many quotes to answer and they seem to be coming thick and fast with this particular topic. I don't think I'll be giving it too much more of my time as I have other things in my life to deal with! I will soon be un-following this topic as my email inbox is chocker-blocked every morning with new replies! Just to add a little bit extra to your comment: Professor Hynek was actually a paid government debunker as well as a skeptic, (and astronomer), who slowly, over a period of time, converted to believing that there was something to the UFO phenomenon. The following link will give you a very interesting read about his experiences: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Allen_Hynek
