    Maybe I am behind the times, but I just got through reading an interesting book called The Day After Roswell by Lt. Col. Philip J. Corso. You can read the book here if you like.
    To those unfamiliar with the Roswell Incident you can find more info here. Very interesting read and it ties in quite nicely with things that have happened and things that will happen.
    Would be interesting to hear other views on this ...

    well. my thoughts, for what they are worth..

    hoaxes are of all times...
    they have got some things in common, usually..
    - there is no hard, irrefutable evidence.
    - someone makes a lot of money out of it.
    the name of erich von däniken springs to mind
    here...

    the roswell incident has the added complication
    that the sources are mostly from the us govt...
    and their credibility is below zero, imo..

    just my two cents.

    Roswell is the conspiracy that keeps on giving, if you've got a book or movie to offer.

    I think a lot of people will be shocked when the truth comes out.

    Silly me. I thought it was made up to distract from the lack of government activities.

    Blowing little things out of proportion with bureaucratic mystery is nothing new, it is most definitely a hoax that ended up acting in the government's favour.

    I am personally shocked at the amount of conspiracy theorists on this board.
    I wish I could make all of you theorists take a polygraph to see if even *you* believe what you are saying.
