UFO Conjectures

The Piltdown Man Hoax and the Koi/Roe Imbroglio....It's always something.

The acrimony and internecine squabbles of the Piltdown discovery mimic the ongoing ufological "quarrel" noted here the other day.

Click HERE to read about the Piltdown affair (which included Conan Doyle and Teilhard de Chardin among others).

This is a link, from my Facebook feed, that allegedly uncovers the Piltdown forger:

  • Hmmm,

    going a bit off-topic but I´ve often felt that I understand these hoaxers. I mean if you´re an intelligent and gifted individual with a weird sense of humour (which very intelligent people often seem to have), wouldn´t you try to find out what people will believe and how you can make up evidence? Of course it´s annoying or sad if they won´t reveal their hoax in good time.

  • I admit, I would like to know more about the nature of the 'hoaxes' that Chardin perpetrated -- since people seem to have considered him a type of hoaxer before this PM Hoax. I have not seen anything of Chardin's which would lead me to believe that he would actually poison the well on a matter of this importance. The sheer number of other hoaxes attributed to Dawson -- some 38 other hoaxes, by some accounts online -- points to him by sheer probability. Though I certainly am open to the possibility that Chardin -- knowing Dawson's fraudulent tendencies to be entirely bad for Science -- planted evidence that Chardin knew would bring the end of Dawson's career about more rapidly.

  • Just watched the Mirage Men documentary (great stuff) and I started wondering how many UFO sightings could be just staged (by whom I have no idea). And of course, you need just one hoax and the ufo "community" will do the rest, endlessly analyzing the "happening" even after you told them it was just a joke or something (Roswell?)...

  • Jerry...

    You would do well to check out Nick Redfern's books (and material) on staged UFO events.

    You can find some of his work on the Mysterious Universe site and his web-site. (Google it.)

    Hey, I love Nick Redfern, used to read his posts at UfoMystic and nowadays at Mysterious Universe. I should buy one of his books but really, I can´t decide, they all look so good (monsters or aliens?).
