The Aztec UFO crash

Despite the fact that in incidentology this incident is often called the “second Roswell”, very few people remember it. This incident does not even come close to the cult and popularity of the Roswell incident itself.

In March 1948, an unidentified object flying through the sky, abruptly changing course and falling somewhere in the desert rocky area of ​​Hart Canyon, near Aztec, New Mexico, USA.

The main witnesses of this event are two workers from the local oil platform – Silas Newton and Leo Gebauer. They were at work when they saw a “huge metal disk” in the sky.

The disc was about 30 meters in diameter and looked impressive, with no traces of joints and rivets on its metal surface, as if it had been poured. The disc fell to the ground, but there was no visible damage to the outside.

As Newton and Gebauer approached, they saw that there were several openings in the disk. When looking at one of them, they noticed that there were at least 16 bodies of low humanoid creatures on the floor. Their bodies were covered with dark soot, as if they had been hit by a fire, possibly when there was a fire in the disc.

The same day, the workers called the police and told them about the fallen corpses. Officers arrived and examined the drive for a long time. After that, they called the military. When they arrived, they quickly enclosed the entire territory, and then took the disk with them. They ordered everyone present to remain silent about what was seen.

For almost a year, Newton and Gebauer remained silent, fearing the threats of the military, but then broke their silence and told the journalist Frank Scully about all that had happened. In 1949, Scully published their story in the popular Variety Magazine and described the UFO crash near Aztec. Later, the journalist published a book detailing the incident, entitled “Behind the Flying Saucers.”

Both the articles and the book are gaining popularity. But, at one point, Scully and the two eyewitnesses are indicted. Even some ufologists consider the whole story to be forgery and fraud.

The fact is that the two workers claimed to have succeeded in taking some of the objects from the fallen UFO and then tried to sell them as “alien technology”. There were rumors that they made up the whole UFO story to sell expensive ordinary parts from different machines.

One of these “artifacts” ran into a journalist from the San Francisco Chronicle. He submitted it to a research laboratory, where they determined that the “alien artifact” was made of a simple piece of aluminum.

Because of these revelations, the whole story of the UFO crash to Aztec was quickly forgotten. Even at one point, Newton and Gebauer themselves admitted that everything was a hoax.

30 years later, in the early 1980s, a ufologist recalls the story of the UFO crash to Aztec, taking it out of the dusty archives and looking at it in a new light. According to him, all this could have been reality.

When the UFO case at Aztec falls into the famous ufologists Scott and Susan Ramsay, they begin to check the facts set out in articles and books. According to them, the whole of the revelations is like a carefully crafted scenario that will discredit workers’ testimonies.

Scott Ramsay says:

“From 1952 to 1986, no one would touch the Aztec incident. As if it was “poisoned” by the allegations of forgery, UFO researchers did not want to deal with it.

We have carefully examined this case and concluded that the authorities were ready to even completely ruin the lives of two or three people (if you include journalist Scully) in order to conceal the information. If you look at the original eyewitness accounts, it is not possible to disprove them. “

In 2011, Ramsey draws attention to a strange FBI document entitled “Hottel Memo Report” written by Guy Hottel, head of the FBI’s local Washington office in 1950, addressed to the FBI chief John Edgar Hoover.

The document has been published in the archives of the FBI’s official website and, over the next few years, it often appears as a document that “officially confirms the cover up of aliens by US authorities.”

It specifically states that:

“An Air Force source said three so-called flying saucers had been stationed at a base in New Mexico. They are described as round, center-raised and approximately 50 feet (15 meters) in diameter. There were three human-like figures in each.

They were 3 feet (90 cm) high, dressed in very fine metallic fabric with straps, similar to pilots’ gadgets. According to Mr. G. (name is hidden), these discs were found in New Mexico with a very powerful radar in the area. Radar is thought to have responded to dish mechanics. “

In 2013, the FBI finally commented on this note and said that it did not confirm anything, but merely outlined any information obtained through a second or third person. However, many ufologists are still convinced that this note accidentally “leaked” from an FBI secret file and is completely correct.

It describes the Roswell incident, but Scott Ramsay is sure it has something to do with the Aztec incident.

First, because according to eyewitnesses, one disc is broken in Roswell but three in the FBI note. And secondly, there was a strange case where a Denver resident tried to sell photos that he claimed were taken at the scene of a UFO crash in Aztec. There is information that the FBI has been stubbornly following this person to obtain these photographs.

If the Aztec incident did not exist, why would the FBI try to get the photos?

A man who has been to hell told what sinners are punished for

The story happened to one man named Zhao Tai during the reign of the Western Jin Dynasty (265-316). It is described in a collection of Buddhist stories.

At some point, Zhao felt a severe pain and immediately lost consciousness. The man’s body remained warm, so loved ones waited for him to wake up. This happened only 10 days later. After “returning”, Zhao told what happened to him.

Immediately after losing consciousness, a horseman arrived at him. Two escorts led the Zhao to the east, where a big glorious city was located. There were thousands of people who, together with the hero of the this story, descended to the underworld. A man in a dark red robe asked what kind of sins he had committed. Zhao replied that his father and brother were officials, that he studied at home, did nothing wrong and did not commit crimes.

The man was the assigned to command the prisoners in hell. Some went with punctured tongues, others were hugged from red-hot iron, and others had their body part boiled in cauldrons. If a person died during these trials, they were instantly brought back to life. All punishments corresponded to crimes.

If a criminal could cope with all tortures, the next stage would be rebirth and reincarnation. Killers and thieves became pigs and sheep, which the owners eventually slaughtered for meat; people who led a decent life turned into birds and animals; those who did not repay their debts during life turned to horses and donkeys for hard work.

In order not to go to hell, a person must constantly improve and not commit evil deeds. In the underworld, they knew that Zhou was allotted another 30 years, so they released him into the human world.

Exciting (fairy)tales, aren’t they?

5G networks act as an accelerator for diseases

There are concerns that the UK could be severely affected by the coronavirus due to the deployment of the 5G network , conspiracy theorists say.

There are currently 3983 confirmed cases of COVID-19 recorded throughout Britain and Northern Ireland. The disease has spread rapidly since it was first discovered on January 31, 2020. The death toll is 335 people and Prime Minister Boris Johnson warns that this number will increase significantly.

As coronavirus spread around the world , a new conspiracy theory found a grateful audience: virus symptoms: fever, cough and shortness of breath – this is how the human body actually reacts to 5G. The theory was met with skepticism by experts who noted that coronavirus was detected in many areas without 5G networks. Anti-5G critics living in the UK believe the virus most likely started in Wuhan and was shipped to the UK. But they are concerned that an ultra-fast network, currently operating in nearly 100 locations across Britain, could help the disease spread faster.

Somerset-based activist Louise Thomas told The Daily Star Online:

“We cannot say that 5G caused the coronavirus, but that could make it worse.”

Tanja Rebel, another activist and teacher of philosophy at Whit College, said:

“Many studies show that electromagnetic radiation suppresses the immune system and helps viruses and bacteria thrive. Thus, electromagnetic radiation and, in particular, 5G could act as an accelerator of the disease. We don’t know for sure, but common sense and a preventive decree urgently need a moratorium on testing 5G until we can say that it’s safe.”

The precautionary principle states that governments and societies should be wary of responding to anything that could cause catastrophic damage that is not yet fully understood by science. The Public Health Authority of England asked for comments about 5G networks. In Italy, which is now the country with the highest coronavirus mortality rate, 5G networks were established in five cities in 2019 with plans to increase coverage throughout 2020.

A 2011 study at Northeastern University in Boston showed that some unicellular bacteria, such as E. coli (E. coli), can communicate with each other using “radio waves.

“Very little is known about COVID-19, the new coronavirus that underlies the current pandemic, but studies have shown that viruses “talk to each other” when deciding whether to infect a carrier. Activists are now urging the government to stop deploying 5G networks for public health. “Especially in today’s situation, it’s crucial that we don’t play with the lives of our citizens. That would be reckless,” Rebel said.

Coronavirus plus Armageddon. What are the dangers of alien asteroids who fly to Earth

The leap year 2020 has prepared many surprises. Fans of various kinds of conspiracies have already found predictions of the spread of coronavirus in the statements of Vanga and Nostradamus. However, the true end of the world can overtake mankind from a completely different perspective.

At the end of next month, a Planet Killer will fly next to Earth. It is found out how likely the collision of the planet with an asteroid is and what its consequences will be.

A block the size of a village

On April 29, a giant asteroid 1.7 kilometers long and more than four kilometers wide will fly very close to Earth. The giant space object is called the Killer of the Planets and flies together with a company. According to NASA, which cite the media, this company will be its “little brother.

“Two asteroids – 1998 OH and 1998 OR2 – are characterized as “potentially dangerous” because their sizes are “large enough to lead to global effects if one of them collides with the Earth.”

Will humanity die?

Scientists give answers to this question in a different way. However, NASA still reassured, arguing that in April the end of the world should not be expected. Asteroids will not come closer than five million kilometers to our planet, despite the fact that their flight path will not be so far from Earth.

However, to prevent these threats, there are large research centers scattered around the world. It is in them that data is collected annually on the fall of cosmic bodies to Earth.

According to various sources, each year, about 500 meteorites slightly more than half a kilogram fall to Earth. Most drop in the ocean or burn out in the atmosphere, but they are all so small that they go unnoticed.

On the other hand, the consequences of a collision of the Earth with such a large cosmic body as the Killer of the Planets can be fatal. You can look at them on the site Impact: Earth!, created by scientists from Purdue University and King’s College London. So, the fall of an asteroid with a diameter of 1300 meters into the ocean at a speed of 38 kilometers per second will lead to tsunamis and earthquakes lasting almost 20 minutes.

If we take the example of another asteroid – 1997XF11, which will fly near the Earth in 2028 – you can see a map of devastating consequences if it falls, for example, in the center of Spain. Its diameter is 1.6 kilometers and a speed of 48,000 kilometers per hour.

The first circle denotes the area in which there will be nothing alive. The second – yellow – limits the area where the vast majority of living things will not be saved, and if they survive, they will have very serious health consequences. The inhabitants of the red circle will be able to stay alive with a slightly greater degree of probability. The green zone awaits massive destruction. Finally, the purple and gray circles are areas that will be struck by a blast wave: deafening sounds, debris and ashes await them. Looking ahead – in the event of such an asteroid falling to Earth, the fate of dinosaurs awaits humanity.
