Wrong, Roswell was a non-event. The Roswell Myth was made of whole cloth 30 years later.
But there is the point I have lazily been trying to make for the last few weeks. It really doesnt matter how many times you can totally dissprove a Hoax, there will always be sufficient people who wont take a blind bit of notice, because they WANT to believe and will cling to anything that supports their crackpot ideas.
Take John Lear as a prime example. I totally dissproved his rubbish about the Apollo 11 landing being a hoax, but he still continues to promote it and he still has his believers. His claims about knowing a cure for Aids?. I totally dissproved his ridiculous claim that the cure was from a very rare fungus or something only available in China and ripped his timeline for it being created by some nitwit in the USA. But there are still people who will cling to his insane ideas. In the UK, Barry King and his dopey DUMB base under Peasmore, with 'Greys' killing and using children for experiments. There are simply loads and loads of Hoaxes which have been well poiinted out to people yet the sheeple will still blindly follow along.
Its the same with this latest thing with the Pickerings or whoever and the alleged Navy man. You can run yourself rigid chasing it and 100% prove it is rubbish. But you know what?, the majority of believers simply wont care, because they are convinced, and thats all that matters to them. They will call it 'Disinfo' and a 'conspiracy'. That does not denigrate whatsoever the work done to expose the hoax. But in my opinion, nowadays one should simply expose a Hoax, document it and leave it. Running yourself ragged chasing and hounding the proponents is doing nothing, other than wasting money time and sleep.
