Not surprisingly, experts are denying that a 1950s memo confirming the landing of a UFO on earth is the real deal, claiming that it’s rubbish and a tactic used to push conspiracy theories. It’s definitely nothing new; the so-called “Hottel Memo” has been released to the public before, and has yet to be confirmed or proven by a reputable source.
Still, the fact that such a heated controversy surrounds the memo is enough fuel to fire the continued hope and faith that believers share—and even if it’s fake, it’s definitely not enough to disprove their theories.
New York Center for Extraterrestrial Research Michael Luckman says that these documents are definitely a step in the right direction, leading toward “full disclosure” of what the FBI really knows and perhaps what’s really going on at sites such as the one at Roswell, New Mexico. I, for one, would be happy enough knowing what’s going on at our local “mapmaking facility” that’s all fenced with electric wiring, myself… Every time we drive by, we try a new theory.
If these documents are indeed real, it’s doubtful that they will be proven any time soon. Still, with people like the Wikileaks folks running around, you never know.
