I don't think we are in a position to definitely say what this thing is yet. I am waiting to find out how much it would cost to get a certain date of
manufacture for the object. THAT could tell us much.
I am opposed to spending more money (we've spent thousands already) in getting an isotope ratio test done when there is conclusive evidence this was
manufactured on Earth in the report we will have up shortly.
What would be incredible would be to discover it was manufactured several hundred thousand years ago or something like that.
I, like Larry, am confused as to why there hasn't been more of these things popping up and why nobody can replicate this thing easily if it's so
At the end of the day, I have to be a good steward of our company and when a completely neutral, third party expert tells me it's a waste of money to
pursue further tests, and tells me why he believes that, I have to go with it.
BUT, if the dating test is inexpensive we might consider it.
We have been asked to remove the Doctor's name from the public version for obvious reasons and we will honor that request.
We will however, on an individual basis, reveal who he is to certain members we know will not harass him or inundate him with emails so there will be
no doubt as to his qualifications to write the report he wrote.
I have to say I was truly hoping we had something here but we are pretty much right where we started only a couple thousand lighter in the wallet.
Maybe, after we get the other resource demanding projects up and running, we will be able to revisit this and we'll get to the bottom of it. In any
case, when you combine the eye witness account with the lack of other samples coming forward this is still a very weird object.
