    I don't know if this topic should go in here but, I recently read a book on an experiment that took place in WW2 where apparently a ship managed to dissapear. And like any other anomaly you could never get straight facts or answers. So, if you have heard of the philadelphia experiment and know some good infomation on it please reply.

    Thank you ~ Boy Genius

    The Philadelphia Experiment is an urban legend with almost no foundation that made a third rate movie.

    You can obtain more detailed information with a Ouija board, or using chicken entrails.

    Happy New Year.

    Yes, the Philadelphia Experiment is a hoax (psst...not a new hypothesis or idea).

    Yes and it's here because there is no moderator on this sub-forum, as yet, to move it. What is your point?

    My point is that whoever is responsible for moving these threads here is smoking monkey jenkem.

    I gather the idea is that they get moved here and then the New Hypotheses mod decides whether to keep them, stick them into Pseudo or bin them?

    What actually happened was that the "experimentation" forum was re-named to New Hypotheses, so whatever was in there got carried over. That was another unmoderated sub-forum.

    Officially the most viable depiction to be made of it is that it was working on invisibility, but actually 'radar invisibility'. There are so many denials of the event, yet there is still people speculating about it. Maybe they're just looking for something that isn't there. But then again, there are other strange ideas and experiments that never get this far into urban culture and myth. So it begs you to think, maybe there was something iffy, and then again there might not be. And the only way to solve this unknown phenomena, if there is one is to actually see the event occur on the day it was supposed to.

    A time machine will be the most important discovery ever made and will put a lot of old mythos and ideas to an end. Or maybe, it might prove them. Who knows?

    Actually, the most viable explanation is that is was simply a de-guassing process, meant to make the ship undetectable to magnetic mines.

    That's the one! I knew it was something simpler than radar but I couldn't quite remember. But seeing as the experiment never existed officially in the first place, the most viable explanation is that, well nothing happened because the experiment never happened. Unless of course it was dealing with Quantum phenomena
    The cake is a lie. I saw it, but it was not really there and merley a trick of the mind...

    If people of the world acted together to make it a harmonous world. We wouldn't need to wait 2000 years for a messiah; we'd save it less than 24 hours...

    Given that the subject of this topic is based on anecdotal evidence from two very unreliable witness, I am moving this to Pseudoscience.
