but you would need an ascii chart unless your a freak of programming

The dude must have had pages of code for it to represent the text mentioned, e.g. the following:
01001000 01100101 01101100 01101100 01101111 00101100 00100000 01000001 01010100 01010011 00100000 01010111 01101111 01110010 01101100 01100100 00100001
Has a nice message!
In order for the message to translate back into English, it had to have been encoded in English to start with as in the above binary code example (it started in English, therefore will finish in English).
The above fact alone can point to one of two things:
1. The whole thing is bullisht
2. The message was encoded in English, somehow created by that person and/or was MAN-MADE of this earth and intentionally/accidentally projected into his mind.
Binary code represents numerical (and later alpha numerical data) - for me as a programmer to translate the binary back into something I would have to make an assumption:
a. The originating code was an 'English or English-Like' language
b. The originating code was a computational language either low level (machine language) or some intermediary or high level language
But the fact that it translated back into something tangible leaves little doubt as to the origins.

Star for this~! Nice to see someone with experience and intelligence post instead of speculation. To me, this is a HUGE stretch out on a limb, the only other way they would know how we spoke English would be to record our/the soldiers conversations and some how convert it enough to get it close enough to state what their intentions are.
"Experience" and "intelligence" are not enough to post here.

I don't remember if the show mentioned when exactly he started writing down the images of binary he was seeing in his mind but isn't there a scientific way to date ink or pencil marking to get some kind of guess as to when the code was written down on paper? If there is, then someone needs to do it so we can see just how recent those journal entries are. It may well tell us if he is full of BS or if he did indeed just keep it hidden out of fear of being called a nutjob.
Work on ASCII formally began on October 6, 1960, with the first meeting of the American Standards Association's (ASA) X3.2 subcommittee. The first edition of the standard was published during 1963, a major revision during 1967, and the most recent update during 1986.

As some people calling "fake" as always... consider the possibility this could be a human that wrote this message. Then you will see it is not "fake", because it bloody well happened!.
For a start this could be someone from the future, who knows?
To me it looks like they are trying to point to Atlantis (if it is indeed where some people claim it is). There are alot of mysteries with the people of atlantis... maybe they didn;t just dissapear, and they have sent a message from the future.
Not saying i believe it, but open your mind.
Check this thread out, and then look at the picture below (the co-ordinates in op's link)
Don't have the time to read through the whole thread, sorry if the atlantis connection has been noticed already.
It could always be a hoax.But that does not mean it is "fake". Anyone shouting and spamming "fake" is ignorant.
