ok...did a search and read 10 pages on the other ats thread on these things. it appears the lids are there and that they may very well be burial vaults...
and i also stick by my opinion that casket burial in the event of a mass casualty situation would be the worst possible way to dispose of corpses.

Well in the thread we discussed a patent that looked very much like the coffins you see there. It was a portable coffin that could be used over and over again to cremate bodies. It was a super-resistant polymer.
So if thats what these things are, they are very expensive and scary.
yeah.. I'd agree.
I don't think this is for "burying"
But for "transporting" corpses to where they'd be cremated.
reusable.. so the AMOUNT you see there ... multiplied by how many times they're used.. is the actual amount of bodies.
say.. for posterity's sake.. the "initial" aim is a 75% reduction..
say there are stockpiles of 500,000 like the one in Georgia.. but in every state.
(just averaging.. i know there's more people in Texas than Vermont.. bear with me)..
so that's 2.5 mil "vaults" or "containers" or "tupperware tubs".. as I like to call them.
U.S. 2008 population = 304,627,000 ....75% of which is 228,470,250 (goal level)
228,470,250 divided by 2.5 mil vaults = 114
So each one would have to be used 114 times to reach a population level of 76,156,750.
Thats enough for today's Fun Facts!
TextAs to mass graves being better or more efficient than body bags or caskets? I think some people are forgetting the intended purpose of the burial vaults: They are built to preserve the integrity of the ground above it. Which means that large numbers of bodies can be "swept under the rug", if you will, by paving over them or building on top of them.

They aren't coffins, they're burial vaults which the coffin goes into. If the government actually did plan on something wiping out a half million people in one fell swoop in Atlanta, don't you think body bags and mass burial or cremation would be the route they'd take to dispose of the dead? Digging a half million gaves would take far, far longer and be far less convenient. hell, in the time it would take to dig that many graves they could probably find a plant that could make a half million of these things so why bother stockpiling them?
Once again Alex Jones makes an ass of himself.
Oh yeah, even if Alex Jones is occasionally wrong (not too often) or a blowhard, I trust what he says infinitely more than any government propaganda or corporate media brainwashing.

These are air tight, hermetically sealed coffins. Who the hell just happens to have 500,000 specially designed coffins capable of containing biowarfare bodies laying around?!
[edit on 7/18/2008 by sp00n1]
Could this be a possibility?
Putting dead bodies of sick survivors from a nuclear attack in these maybe?
