Why do you make so many assumptions instead of researching properly?
Who ever said that "AREA 51" is called "BASE 51"?
It's not. Why assume that?
"Base" and "Area" are completely different words, meanings and point to different things. That there was a base IN that area, is a completely
different thing, and the base probably had a completely different numbering (if it had such).
So the "51" was never the number of a BASE, it was part of the name of an AREA.
And, as someone already stated, the numbering of areas doesn't always work like that. Have you ever studied road numbers? I don't mean street
numbers, but the numbers people have given to roads as their names. They are not "road 1", "road 2" and so on, but more like "interstate 80" and
It's just like "Preparation H" - there never was "Preparations A through G", because the "H" doesn't signify a sequence (again, why assume
that the number in "Area 51" signifies a place in a sequence?), but the "H" has another signifigance.
Less assumptions, and more research, and I am sure you will learn how to ask the intelligent and meaningful questions.
