This week I talked with Paul Kimball about a variety of topics that included Oak Island, reality TV, and some of the best UFO sightings. You can listen to the program here:
For those interested, since Paul lives in Nova Scotia, the scene of the Oak Island program, and since they have teased us with the idea that treasure has been
found, I asked if he had heard anything about that. He said that he hadn’t, but
that he didn’t pay close attention to the newspaper reports and he wasn’t
overly interested in Oak Island anyway. I wondered if the gold coin they found,
according to the tease, and that had been brought up during their latest dig,
might have been planted. But, of course, he had no idea if that happened or
not. We just speculated that it might have happened and I mentioned an Air
Force button allegedly found on the Brazel (Foster) ranch in New Mexico during
one of these reality shows had obviously been planted there. The Air Force
didn’t exist in 1947 and even if it had, no one would have been wearing a Class
“A” uniform out to the remote ranch to lose a button.
Back in January of this year, at www.Inquistr.com, they reported that no treasure had been found on Oak Island. They noted the same thing that I suggested, which is if the treasure had been found, the information would have leaked into the mainstream. The news would have been huge and too big to contain. Or, in other words, no treasure was found and they suggested there is none to find.
We did talk about some of the best UFO cases, and how he had determined which ones to use in his documentary. He’s still interested in Shag Harbour and mentioned that he had talked with people who were involved in the case. Like Roswell, everyone agrees that something fell, it’s just not clear what it was. He thought the idea of a cover-up had not been proved, though there was certainly some government secrecy.
Interestingly, he talked with a crew man who had once been involved in the same sort of radar and training flights as had been the crew of the RB-47, which was a radar and visual sighting case in 1957. He mentioned that Brad Sparks had provided him with some of the analysis and that he had challenged Tim Printy, who writes and publishes the SUNlite skeptical newsletter, to come up with a solution. Printy spent on issue of his newsletter on analysis and Paul said that the analysis was interesting. What I noticed was that the man Paul talked to, who had been flying the same sort of mission as those on the RB-47 that had the first sighting, reported a similar incident. Asked what it was, the crewman said, “A UFO.” Sometimes it just comes down to where you sit on the no alien – alien visitation continuum.
