1. The ship looks like and wobbles like Jello.
2. I have never heard of the "experts" in the video (that in itself does not mean it is a hoax).
3. While a nice man, Lt Col Corso's book has many errors in it and he has made wild claims he doesn't back up.
4. The way the Jello, I mean "craft" moves in the video looks like stop motion photography.
5. The lasers that shoot out of it look fake.
6. Mr Diaz seems to be a nice man and may not be in it for the money, but someone has collected a lot of royalties for the books about him.
7. Why no inside shots of the craft?
8. Why no photos of the beings?
9. When the craft is videotaped in front of the "tree" why no panning of the camera as the poster stated? And why does the tree look suspiciously like a house plant? (good catch on the branch)
This is a hoax, although nothing anyone brings up will make the believers question this. The main problem with Ufology is the lack of questioning. We want to believe to a fault. With stories like this, the UFO researchers will never stop being the laughing stock of scientists.
As a historian, cultural anthropologist, UFO researcher, author and film producer I investigate the Carlos Diaz contact case for seven years. Since I wanted to be sure before I publish the case that any possibility of a hoax can be excluded, I did not only travel to Mexico twelve times for on-site field investigations, but also consulted leading experts in the US, Belgium, Germany and Italy, including * Prof. Corrado Malanga, University of Pisa * Prof. Manfred Kage, University of Mannheim * Prof, Auguste Meessen, University of Louvain * Bob Shell, editor "Shutterbug" Magazine, phototechnical consultant of the FBI * Dr. Robert Nathan, Jet Propulsion Lab/NASA, Pasadena * Jim Dilettoso, The Village Labs. None of these photo technical experts found any evidence of a hoax in the films and footage shot by Diaz. Field investigations were performed also by Prof. John E. Mack of Harvard, who spent three days in Tepoztlan and extensively talked to the witness, his family and local eyewitnesses. We were able to verify that over 50 % of the population of the city of Tepoztlan, in which Diaz lives, about 12.000 people, saw the very same type of object filmed and photographed by Diaz, a fact confirmed by the mayor of Tepoztlan. The Air Traffic Controllers of Mexico City's International Airport confirmed on camera regular UFO sightings over the area of Tepoztlan. Several researchers who visited the place, including Dr. Roberto Pinotti, saw the very same ship Carlos filmed and photographed.
