I am new to this forum, and not quite sure where to post normal threads. So if this is the wrong place for this, let me know.
I recently became intrigued with the character of Phil Schneider and proceeded to find out as much as I could. The story was intriguing, yet seemingly
fantastic in nature. Now I should let everyone kn.w now, that I am neither a geologist nor psychologist. Everything I know has been from reading and
The question I pose, and will be the first to make sure I neither believe, nor disbelieve without rigorous research and expert opinion is this;
Was Phil all he claims to be, or is he a paranoid schitzophrenic, who's pyche seems to have split hinging into reality around a background in
Now granted I have only done a very brief amount of research, but even within that time period I have seen huge problems with his story as well as his
scientific rhetoric which sounds quite convincing. The first alarm bell hit with the continual references to the security clearance he had, this
extremely high up Rhyolite clearance, which seems to not exist. Now I know that it could be argued that it is high enough up that it is top secret,
but the fact that it does not fit into previously de-classifed clearance name formats(this is highly generalized), but rather is a type of pumice
stone, seems to point more toward the geological fixtion throughout his lectures.
Ah, yes, now the lectures. So far I have taken the time to note the two following inconsistencies in facts about his geological evidence, the rest I
leave up to you good people to find the others, there is definitely a pattern in the geological terms he uses, and he especially loves the phrase
"scalenehedral crystaine" which he uses in variations including the latter, "scalenehedral metallic crystalline" "alien crystalline" and the list goes
on. This phrase seems to encompass a variety of geological and chemical substances, including being an alien element, an alien geological formation
as well as a type of heavy metal. Here is an example of a few inconsitences:
In his August 1995 lecture he procures various rocks including this one at 1hr13m50s in:
He says this about it,(paraphrased): This is an Alien crystaline 11x harder than a diamond, 70x stronger, can withstand temps in excess 10,000f. Used
for tiny windows of ships.
Now in his November 1995 lecture he produced a similar, possibly the same, rock in this video at 33m 30s
This is a paraphrase of what he said: "tabular scalenhedral crystaline form 4x harder than diamond 4x tensile strength 45,000 f melting point."
Notice the similarities. It seems to be a reoccuring theme that he runs across, this "distinctly alien alloy/element/rock" that is scalenehedral
crystalline. Here is a 10 second search result for that elusive alien material, Calcite.
Again, I am not here to bust anyone, I just wanted to see what people had to say.
