Over the years the 1947 Roswell Incident has had it's share of critics, skeptics and debunkers, and I've welcomed them in most cases, hopeful that they could offer information that might be beneficial to finally understanding what actually happened near Roswell in 1947. Too many times however the information they present is not factual, and for several years I tried to discuss their points of view with them privately, hoping we could come to an agreement on the information being discussed. I have since then changed my approach and now expose them publicly, as I've done in past editorials about remarks made by Nancy Red Star, Phil Klass, Karl Pflock, James Bond Johnson, and others. The Roswell Incident is hard enough to research without these type individuals continually spreading their beliefs without any verifiable information to support their claims.
Several years ago Dave Thomas did a presentation at the Aztec, NM symposium and during the Q&A time after his presentation, Stanton Friedman and I questioned many of the comments he had made, pretty well destroying his claims. Dave is a physics and mathematics graduate of New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, and a senior scientist at Quatro Corporation in Albuquerque. He is vice president and communications officer of New Mexico for Science and Reason.
Based on his article entitled, Roswell Crash of 1947 "A Realistic View", posted in the January, 2009 edition of Rob McConnell's 'X' Chronicle Newspaper, it is neither scientific, reasonable or realistic. The article does not state a date when Thomas wrote it, however if it's his current view of the Roswell Incident, nothing has changed since he did his presentation at Aztec several years ago. This of course is typical, since their agenda is to ridicule and deny the facts presented over the years.
I will quote statements by Dave Thomas in the above 'X' Chronicle article using his initials (DT) to distinguish his remarks from my rebuttal and comments.
(DT) "Roswell, a small town doing a big business feeding the insatiable appetite of UFO enthusiasts, now houses two UFO museums."
Roswell has not had two UFO Museum's since 1998, when the one located near the base closed after the 50th anniversary of the Incident.
(DT) "Why the aliens were not taken to a superior medical facility remains a mystery."
Is Thomas admitting there were aliens? What knowledge does he have that they were not taken to a superior medical facility such as the Lovelace Clinic in Albuquerque, which had a contract with the Army Air Force, or to White Sands, Los Alamos, Bethesda, Walter Reed, Wright Field, or any other location?
(DT) "William "Mac" Brazel, foreman of the Foster ranch, along with a 7-year old girl, Dee Proctor, found the most famous debris in modern history."
