Hi all,

  The number of views on this particular subject is interesting. Its almost double the number than any other subject. I wonder why that is. Would anyone like to post their reason for being drawn to this posting? It's not immediately apparent from the subject listing that it's specifically about the Philadelphia Experiment. Just curious. original.gif

I have been also been thinking about why this post has generated so many views, and here's what I've come up with :

A) It spans 2 pages, meaning someone who looks at   both pages counts as 2 views.

cool.gif It's the first topic to span 2 pages, making it the first one most people read.

C) It's right at the top of the most popular section in the forum

Also, people are drawn to a post with a lot of views, meaning the number of views will increase even faster as more views are counted. Since this post has more views than any other in the forum, it's the most likely topic that people will view.

If anyone has any other reasons why they have been drawn to viewing this thread, let us know ! Lets see if we can't keep this the longest thread in the forum.

;D

I have been interested in The Philadelphia Experiment for a couple years now. Not a specific reason I can pinpoint. Just that it is controversial.
Either it's a government conspiracy, making it a potential scientific breakthrough, or it's an elaborite hoax due to no follow up on the supposed breakthrough, or it's something in between: an experiment happened--insignifacant compared to the legend--and the government covered it up to hide it's embarrasement for failing.

I think it's so mysterious though because if it's real, then why havent there been more experiments, since the first two would have been partially successful. And if it's false, then why is there so many unanswered questions regarding dates/times and the ships log, etc.???

Anyways, it does make a good mystery story original.gif

Gareth,

 Very good explanation. I wasn't aware of the fact that a 2 page post would count as 2 views. A posting with a high number of hits would also prompt me to view it even if I was not particularly interested in the subject at first. Mystery solved, and here I thought I had uncovered a grand conspiracy formulated by the evil administrators of this website, seeking to gain control by some devious mind control experiment.  ohmy.gif  tongue.gif

LOL  ;D

Incicently, we now only need 1 more post in this thread to make it the first "Very Hot Topic".

;D

P.S. The mind control experiments are yet to come.

Oh, you guys, are you just going for the record? Well, let me help!!! But really, like a former post said, I have always been interested in how the military explained to the families of those sailors what (supposedly) happened to them. I was once told, by a retired military man, that many times on ships, when pilots got into 'dog fights' with enemy planes(during peacetime)and were killed, their families were told they had an accident, so they wouldn't want retribution for their loved ones' death, by another country! Hope this hasn't gone off the subject!  :-[

Nora,

 Actually, it was a side-effect of the mind control device implanted subliminally into the HTML code by devious programmers hired by the evil WEBMASTER of this site. I have sucessfully countered its dangerous force by wrapping my head in Reynold's aluminum foil. A word of warning though, don't operate a microwave while wearing this protective device. tongue.gif

  Seriously though, another good question to ask would be why the Navy would conduct an experiment in an unsecured area in plain view of thousands of potential witnesses? The port in Philadelphia was used by civilian boats as well as military, and any attempted experiment would hardly have been secret. It's amazing that Carl Allen was the only one to have reported this totally mind-numbing occurance. Even the Naval base at Norfolk would have been more ideal, as that was a secure facility, and only six hours away from the port in Philadelphia. Interesting how all these other "witnesses" began turning up only after the publication of the book by Charles Berlitz.

That secret HTML code works pretty well don't you think - LOL. It's certainly worked wonders on this thread  :original.gif

Back to the subject of Invisability Experiments, and it strange where the military decide to test these things out. UFO's for example - some which are obviously Test Aircraft, have been seen over highly populated cities for years. The Stealth Fighter series was originaly seen on numerous ocassions over populated areas as well, back when it was a black project. I suppose trying to
make an entire Battleship disappear is something you just can't do very well in secret. Still as you say, they could have chosen a much more secure location than they allegedly did.

Gareth,

  Exactly, and for that point you have stated perfectly the reason for the existance of Area 51. A highly secure, out of the way place created for the sole purpose of developing and testing top secret aircraft. They aren't rolling these things out of hangers at O'Hare field in Chicago in plain view of everyone and their mother. Extreme care is taken to insure the secrecy of these 'experiments'. Of course, being aircraft they have to travel over populated area's eventually, but by the time they do that, they are at such a height as to be pratically imperceitable, or mistaken as UFO's, which in any case would protect their design and capabilities awhile longer.

Geographically it would be the perfect place for a military testing base. Large area with little population.

And using the UFO theory seems to be the perfect cover up. Whether it was made up by the military for a cover up, or said by others and the military decided to go with it.

It all seems like logical, like the pieces of a puzzle coming together.

Speaking of good places for secret military test bases, I've heard theories that suggest that such bases could be contructed under the ocean, or even on the far side of the moon. For all we know, such locations may have already been used for these purposes. Imagine how secure and secret a moon base would be for testing new types of space craft for example. Given the costs involved in such a project however, it is highly unlikely a moon base would have been constructed solely for that purpose. Maybe in the future though, when space travel is much much cheaper, and high speed space craft are the latest black projects,  future Area 51 equivalents may not be on planet earth at all.
