OK- so it is under the assumption due to the guys story that he was 'very close' or 'right next to' to the craft as this vent ejected SOMETHING.
So- let's look at the angle of attack here:
He is a vertically standing human- as we all are, with very uniform wounds in a perfect grid pattern on his chest and shirt- lining up vertically with
If the drawn diagram of the craft is actually from him, then he would have had to have been bent almost completely backwards (like almost in a crab
walk) in order for the angles to match up. PLUS- he would've had to have been VERY close or pressed up against it to get the detail shown in the
wounds and shirt damage.
Look at the drawing, then look at his wounds/shirt- NO WAY they could've lined up unless he was DIRECTLY in front of the vent with his body aligned
parallel to the vent- this means he was either doing the crab walk under a UFO in the woods, or he's just full of BS like I mentioned earlier.
I WANT TO BELIEVE TOO! BUT DON'T BELIEVE THIS GUY!!!
For just a second think like an actual investigator minus the emotional attachment to the UFO issue, and you will see all that I have seen. Just
because you are honest and sane doesn't mean everyone else is..
That's another interesting point, although hardly definitive.
I can think of two scenarios right off the bat that would still cause the damage, even from a distance, and both of them have already been mentioned
in this thread.
1) Microwaves - As long as he was standing in the beam path, and close enough to be within the resonant frequency burst, these beams would still cause
the damage at a distance
2) Ionized Gas - unlike normal gas, Ionized gas could be directed easily with a magnetic field, minimizing the theorized dispersal pattern you
Now please, don't get me wrong here, I'm not drawing ANY conclusions yet in this case. I'm not saying I think that's what it was. However, when
investigating a case, it is imperative that all of the possibilities are included in the analysis.
While you're points are well made, I'm just not sure that they rule the man's story out.
I'm especially not sure before tracking down a medical report on the victim.
As an actual investigator (don't worry, I didn't take offense at your comment, I'm just illustrating) I would be properly embarrased to have
dismissed this case based upon such arguments, only to see another investigator track down the medical report and find results that disproved my
That's all I'm saying here. Some good points have been raised about this case. There are certainly some questions about his story, when viewing
from a 'that story is impossible' standpoint.
It is the mark of a true skeptic to be able to comprehend both sides of the argument as possible, and to then let the evidence of the case dictate
Without anything being definitively proven, I still think this case has a lot more to be investigated.
