There are some things that I believe have been resolved and then something happens and I realize that the issue isn’t dead. I believed that after the placard in front of the mummy had been “deblurred” by so many in so many locations that it proved that the Roswell Slides showed an unfortunate child who had died several hundred years ago (I still refuse to post more pictures… it seems to be disrespectful).
I would have thought that when the documentation showing the excavation of that child, seen first as he was first uncovered and later on display in a museum, that any question would be put to rest. It was clear from other photographs that this was a museum setting and that museum had been identified. Given that, we could now say without fear of contradiction that this wasn’t an alien creature, but the body of a human child.
Of course I have been proven wrong on this (meaning the issue there is contradiction). Apparently there are those who do not wish the issue resolved. They continue to make ridiculous statements such as it is an alien put on display but the placard was written to cover the actual identity of the alien. It was a test to see how the general population would react and this might have been some early attempt to gauge the panic that might ensue from such a revelation. This is nutty in the extreme because there are better ways to answer that question and the last thing the government would do is display something in plain sight, “The Purloined Letter” notwithstanding.
Recently, in the last few weeks, we have been treated to another “expert’s” opinion on why the mummy is not a human, how those who suggest otherwise have not applied the proper science, that the mummy is bigger than claimed by the skeptics and the debunkers. Those who had examined the slide carefully are now able to state, apparently with no fear of opposition, that this is not a mummy and is an alien.
I, of course, must ask, how can you make these precise scientific measurements from a slide… and is the actual slide available, or are these scientists working from scans of the slide… and if the actual slide has not been reviewed, then aren’t all these alleged scientific conclusions based on evidence that might have been manipulated? Is it not possible that the placard can actually be read on the slide but has been altered on the scans to obscure the truth?
I believe that those making some of these pronouncements in the world today have not seen the original. I believe that they are seeing what they wish to see rather than what is actually there. And I believe that the documentation is overwhelming, proving that this is a mummy and not an alien.
The point is that the evidence, gathered by skeptics (and on this I count myself among them), is ignored by a misapplied label. This debate ended about forty-eight hours after the “Great Reveal in Mexico City.” And it is the reason the science won’t look into anything connected to UFOs. It is because when a rational explanation is offered, it is ignored by those who have some sort of stake in keeping that particular aspect of the case alive. I can’t say that I blame them. We really shouldn’t be talking about this anymore.
