Man this is the reason I love ATS... I had never even heard about this story before.
I came across this thread yesterday evening. If you subtract about 4 hours of nap time I have been researching this event since about 7pm last night.
It is quite an amazing story with remarkable footage. And the continued story after the actual event is almost as important to note. I for one would
never wanna fall in a rabbit hole that big(or would I? maybe??). Dr. Reed himself repeatedly has stated that he would trade anything to get his
regular life back if that was possible.But anyways...
My analysis of all the evidence so far that I can conjure up, leads me to beleive that indeed this story is probably real. I would state that I have
about 80 percent of me agreeing with everything he says happened.
However there are some discrepencies that leave me with an estimated 20 percent chance that this is a hoax. Mainly because of the minor details. In
some cases he states he videotaped the alien and craft at the scene before taking the 35mm photos(Art Bell C2c am 1999) then he tells his story again
in 2009(OdiseaLink produced DVD), but this time the way he speaks he makes it out as if he took the photos 1st. Things like these raise credibility
Now I am sure that if I told a true story about myself a hundred thousand times I would definately slip up events and slightly twist things
unknowingly while trying to recall past events in chronological order. So I can't use this as the only reason for not beleiving him.
But, beyond all that, there is really one thing that keeps me from fully beleiving him. And that one thing is a little movie called StarGate that was
released two years pryor to the event in question. Now it is not the premise of the movie that makes me question this story, it is what is shown in
At one point in StarGate there is a scene where Ra the alien overlord shows his true form. He removes his human disguise and you get the to see the
movies version of what an alien appears like. Now I don't know if this occured to anyone before, but I think Reed's alien footage and the StarGate
Ra look eerily similar. Almost so similar I would want to know if the company sold any of their props to the public after the making of this film.
I wish I could come up with an actual still from the movie to compare, but I haven't been able to find one and I don't own that movie so... if
anyone does own it, I would really like to see if they can manage to get a side by side comparison of the faces of both Reed's subject and the
un-diguised Ra from Stargate. I think that would atleast give me a little more clarity on the subject.
And who knows this might be the key to debunking this whole thing, if that is possible. But as of right now I have to admit that I in majority beleive
this event actually happened.
