Do you people really believe this stuff? this case is yet another case of "I-know-all-but-I-give-absolutely-no-proof" type of stories. The internet
had a lot of stories like that, the prime example being John Titor.
The method used by these hoaxers is very simple:
1) pick up a conspiracy site that does not have too many sceptics and there are lots of gullible posters - they do not want their story to be debunked
right from the start. If this was legitimate, the guy would have chosen the path of TV to make his revelations, in order to reach a wider audience,
not only conspiracy advocators.
2) tell a story that is crafted so carefully that it does not contain anything that can be verified. I am always amazed that these grandiose stories
never contain a single verifiable element. These stories contain a lot of facts from real life, but these facts are there to enhance the story's
truthfullness, and they are not connected to the imaginary parts of the story in a way that can be confirmed or denied. The most classic example is
Titor's IBM computer: the computer is real, but its role in the story cannot be verified. In this case, the author uses the scientific elements of
real asteroids and revevant missions to enhance the story.
3) never answer the most important questions, fearing their own lives will be taken. Well, since they cannot reveal any information, why do they
bother? the "my-life-is-at-stakes" trick is a very nice and cheap trick to avoid any answering any importan questions.
4) they always throw a "this-advanced-technology-can-solve-all-the-world's-problems" bit, in order to make us develop some sort of hope that this
story better be true. Hope is a very strong emotion and can act as a blindfold - as it is obvious in the case of Obama: many Americans developed hope
that Obama would solve America's problems, but we all now see that was far from truth.
I have seen countless stories such as this one. But I have never seen the slightest bit of evidence.
One particular problem with this story is that Elenin is a sub-light-speed spaceship, while we humans have already developed FTL travel. Isn't it
ridiculus? if these aliens are more advanced than us, they should have visited us with spaceships that travel with FTL speeds, not in horribly slow
comets. On the other hand, if these aliens are not a advanced as we are, this story becomes a lot less interesting.
Conclusion: it is a hoax, Elenin is a normal comet, and there is not a Naval Space Command.
