The Philadelphia Experiment

Image Hosted by

I haven't done an entry on just the The Philadelphia Experiment by itself, so here goes.

One of the strangest conspiracy theories I think.
If you go back through it, it involves Science, Aliens, Time Travel and Magic.
Not to mention connections to Montauk and Aleister Crowley.

The Theory....
"A destroyer escort, the USS Eldridge, was fitted with the required equipment at the naval yards in Philadelphia. Testing began in summer 1943, and was successful to a limited degree. One test, on July 22, resulted in the Eldridge being rendered almost completely invisible, with some witnesses reporting a “greenish fog” in its place. However, crew members complained of severe nausea afterwards. At that point, the experiment was altered at the request of the Navy, with the new objective being invisibility solely to radar. None of this has been substantiated.

The theory continues that the equipment was not properly re-calibrated, but in spite of this the experiment was performed again on October 28. This time, Eldridge not only became entirely invisible, but actually vanished from the area in a flash of blue light. According to some accounts, the U.S. naval base at Norfolk, Virginia, just over 215 miles (346 km) away, reported sighting the Eldridge offshore, whereupon the Eldridge vanished from their sight and reappeared in Philadelphia at the site it had originally occupied, in an apparent case of accidental teleportation. The "Eldridge", after the experiment's conclusion was given to the Greek Militiary Navy and renamed "Leon"(Lion)."

As far as Science goes, research from Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla both figure into the Conspiracy.
Interesting that Tesla died on January 7 1943 and the Experiment was run in summer of 1943.
Of course if you've ever played Command and Conquer, all that makes perfect sense.

Pyramids of Montauk:Explorations in Conciouness by Preston Nichols and Peter Moon brings in the Montauk angle and Aleister Crowley.
This part is just way too involved, so here's a link you can go to to read all this for yourself here

And here's another interesting read on the Conspiracy angle:

Like I said before, going into this theory will lead you and link you to a lot of other theories.
Just take it all with a grain of salt.
