On 10 April, 2004 we added the last of 12 chapters unveiling the biggest hoax created concerning the Philadelphia Experiment. At
you will find many verifiable facts published for the first time that will conclude a long term
investigation into the so called "PX" experiment but more specifically into the claims made by one Alfred Bielek.
Mr. Bielek gained a degree of public recognition for the first time with his well-know testimony at the MUFON conference in 1990. At that time he
stated that he was a true eyewitness and participant to the Philadelphia Experiment. The facts published here will clearly demonstrate that Mr.
Bielek, as well as his companions Preston Nichols and Duncan Cameron, willfully crafted one of the biggest hoaxes to spread from the internet.
According to his own records, Bielek has been on over 50 radio talk shows and a featured speaker at over 40 conferences. We will outline in the body
of our presentation the following re-evaluation of Al Bielek.
· He never participated in the PX
· He never witnessed the PX
· He was no where near the PX test when it occurred
· He has changed the nature of his story many times over the years with additions, embellishments, deletions and wholesale fabrication of events
· He has stated historical events that can be completely verified to be totally false
These points are a sampling of what we will present in our report.
What remains amazing is that Bielek's story was widely accepted by the media and his 'fan community' without criticism. People of all backgrounds
were quick to repeat his quotes, often just borrowing them from someone else's web page, without checking the claims or presenting any critical
analysis of whether they 'could' be true. The most astute observer and researcher of the PX is Marshall Barnes. He has been doing a thorough
investigation of the Philadelphia Experiment since the early '90's. Barnes asked basic questions that no one else thought pertinent and with time he
began to find great discrepancies with Bielek's claims. Starting from a basic dissatisfaction with Bielek's so called "facts", observing that not
one claim was supported by a "hard evidence" [which means that it can be verified] Marshall began a large-scale investigation. Eventually a small
number of people joined Marshall in his endeavors and the result of this long-term research is this report.
Among this group of researchers were Marshall Barnes (USA), Fred Houpt (CAN) and Gerold Schelm (GER), making this investigation a real international
event. Our group effort can demonstrate that the claims of Al Bielek and his companions is nothing short of very impressive media manipulation,
dis-information, partially correct data mixed into fabrications and completely false statements. Where there will always be those of the opinion that
Bielek's media circus is the creation of a government-guided operation, what we can say with certainty is that to some degree it has been a
profitable venture for Bielek and friends. Whether they were selling hokum and malarkey never seemed to stop the curious and naïve from buying tapes
and videos and attending conferences.
The fact is that the one factor missing for over a decade, is a step by step de-construction of the PX-Bielek saga as it was told by Al Bielek. We
have accomplished that and we are confident that his version, his story, does not hold up to severe scrutiny. The references used for this
presentation are the common transcripts of some speeches and interviews given by Al Bielek, which are still accessible on the internet. Additionally,
we make reference to the content of Al Bielek's own web site, www.bielek.com, which has presented the photo material referred to in this report.
Often, we use Al Bielek's own data to point out where he has either lied, mixed and matched bits and pieces of the real story or else just made up a
great deal of nonsense. When we say that someone has 'lied', we are required to show evidence for the accusation. We have documentary evidence
showing Bielek lying on several of the main subjects and the source is emails and official documents, which we have provided as part of the report.
Note: All members of our group of investigators are convinced, that the Philadelphia Experiment itself actually happened, but we are also convinved,
that Al Bielek and his amigos never participated in any way.
