Can man create False Flag Tsunamis? That’s what we have heard – Now here is the declassified evidence to prove the case. (Of course they put it next to “UFOs” to discredit the info) ALSO: Fukushima was offered to process Iran’s nuclear fuel. Do we really know what happened in March 2011?]
AFP – A new book has revealed rare historical gems buried in New Zealand’s national archives, including a bizarre WWII plan to create a “tsunami bomb” and military files detailing supposed UFO sightings.
Author Ray Waru said he wrote “Secrets and Treasures” to highlight the material publicly available at Archives New Zealand in Wellington — where almost 100 kilometres (62 miles) of shelf space is crammed with historical artefacts.
“It was totally overwhelming at the beginning,” he told AFP.
“I knew I wanted to get in the important things, the Treaty of Waitangi (New Zealand’s founding document), the Declaration of Independence, the women’s suffrage petition, and a few other things.
“But once you start digging, one story leads onto another and I’d just follow my nose.”
The suffrage petition Waru refers to contains 36,000 signatures and was dramatically unfurled on the floor of the New Zealand parliament in 1893 by supporters of women’s right to vote.
Stretching for almost 300 metres (980 feet), the petition, currently undergoing restoration, proved successful and led New Zealand, then a British colony, to become the first country in the world to grant women the vote later that year.
Alongside notable historical documents, such as a letter written by explorer captain James Cook before his final voyage, are curiosities like “Project Seal”, a top-secret US-New Zealand attempt to create a doomsday device to rival the nuclear bomb.
The project was launched in June 1944 after a US naval officer noticed that blasting operations to clear coral reefs around Pacific islands sometimes produced a large wave, raising the possibility of creating a “tsunami bomb”.
Explosive tests carried out in waters north of Auckland led scientists to conclude that the weapon was feasible and a series of 10 massive blasts offshore could create a 10-metre (33-foot) tsunami capable of inundating a small coastal city.
“It was absolutely astonishing,” Waru said.
“First that anyone would come up with the idea of developing a weapon of mass destruction based on a tsunami… and also that New Zealand seems to have successfully developed it to the degree that it might have worked.
“I only came across it because they were still vetting the report, so there it was sitting on somebody’s desk (in the archives).”
Waru said the project was shelved in early 1945, despite the success of initial, small-scale tests. (Yeah – cough…. ahem)
“If you put it in a James Bond movie it would be viewed as fantasy but it was a real thing,” he said.
Among the other oddities in the archives are Defence Department records of hundreds of UFO sightings by members of the public, military personnel and commercial pilots, mostly involving moving lights in the sky.
Some of the accounts include drawings of flying saucers, descriptions of aliens wearing “pharaoh masks” and alleged examples of extra-terrestrial writing.
New Zealand’s most famous close encounter was when a television crew recorded strange lights off the South Island town of Kaikoura in 1978.
However, in a disappointment for ET spotters, the military concluded the lights could be explained by natural phenomena such as lights from boats being reflected off clouds or an unusual view of the planet Venus.
Waru said it was seemingly humdrum documents, like school magazines from the early 1900s extolling the virtues of the British Empire, that provided a window into the attitudes of the past.
“There’s masses of records and kilometres of important files but you realise pretty quickly that every piece of paper is related to an individual at some point in time,” he said.
“So it gives the modern researcher a peek into the private lives of individuals, which I found interesting — divorce files from Dunedin, letters a young soldier wrote home to their parents.”
I think skepticism is a good thing, a very good thing. There is nothing wrong with being skeptical and it can in many cases prevent one from being suckered into some big con or lie. Skepticism, however, can also be a very effective tool to keep the truth hidden from people. It can be used to prevent people from even wanting to know the truth, especially when presented by some very clever propagandist in a way that ridicules others. No one wants to be ridiculed and so when some “respected” source ridicules those who make some “fantastic” claim others quickly learn to keep their mouths shut and not question authority. Skepticism based on emotion or opinion is not skepticism, it is a simple choice to believe one thing or source over another. Sometimes the mind can’t imagine that the incredible could be reality and so one tends to disbelieve based on that fact alone. Read more
The 1947 UFO controversy of Roswell, N.M. is like a bad penny: It keeps turning up.
The legend, rehashed by conspiracy theorists in countless documentaries, revolves around allegations that an unusual object fell from the sky — an object so bizarre that the U.S. Air Force issued a press release that a flying saucer had crashed.
That story was quickly recanted, creating what would become one of the greatest urban legends in American history.
Until now, most debunkers doubted that there was even one crash. Now, in an exclusive interview, retired Air Force Lt. Col. Richard French told The Huffington Post that there were actually two crashes.
Ability to negotiate with and/ or defeat alien races might not be an issue that’s been discussed much thus far this year in the lead-up to the presidential election, but it turns out, it’s a point President Obama should probably be hammering home. That’s because the results of a new study conducted by the National Geographic Channel show sixty-five percent of voters think he would better handle visitors from another planet than his competitor Mitt Romney.
The exhaustive analysis was taken over the past few weeks, and respondents were asked a slew of questions concerning their opinions on aliens and UFOs. It turns out way more people claim to have seen aliens than most of us would have guessed. Ten percent of Americans are convinced they’ve seen a UFO with their own eyes, and twenty percent know someone else who claims to have seen a UFO. Perhaps even scarier, according to USA Today, seventy-one percent are convinced the government has withheld alien-related information from the general public.
A spaceship flying over Israel? A satellite or a Russian ballistic missile? An unidentified flying object observed in Middle East countries Thursday night has caused panic, with people calling the police to say they witnessed a UFO.
