Mystery of the Philadelphia Experiment One day in the year 1943, a man named Carlos Miguel Allende claims to have seen a ship turn invisible! He was on a navy boat by the name of the SS Andrew Furuseth. He spotted a ship named the USS Eldridge in the distance. He described the scene he had witnessed by explaining how a green fog began to surround the ship. In just a short amount of time only the hull was visible, and then it had completely disappeared. Not only had the ship turned invisible, but it had also teleported from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Norfolk, Virginia in just a matter of minutes. Allende had just been one of the few to witness The Philadelphia Experiment (Turner). The Eldridge was not the only thing Allende saw exhibiting strange effects (Turner). He also witnessed what happened to the people aboard the Eldridge (Turner). Allende had seen the horrible side effects of the experiment(Turner). Allende said, “... men caught fire, went mad, and the most bizarre of all, some were imbedded half way into the deck of the ship. Others phased in and out of this reality...” (Turner). After this experiment all the men on the ship were sworn to secrecy, and discharged as mental incompetents (Moore 20). The purpose of the experiment is not confirmed, but it is believed to be complete radar invisibility. The explanation is widely accepted because the time of this experiment was during WWII when America needed weapons to fight. It is not believed by many conspiracist that this ship was made invisible with an electromagnetic field and antigravity technology. Some people even believe that this experiment ripped a hole in space and time itself. Later in this paper there will be a more detailed explanation of how this could be possible (Turner). In 1955 Allende began to send “a series of strange letters” to a man by the name of Morris K. Jessup. Jessup was an author who had written the book “The Case for the UFO”. Allende sent him these letter because he believed there was some sort of connection between the methods of propulsion of the Philadelphia Experiment and what Jessup wrote about in “The Case for the UFO”. Allende trusted Jessup because the magnetic field’s Jessup talked about in his book, were the same as the magnetic field at the Philadelphia experiment. Jessup wrote about the magnetic fields without any knowledge of the Philadelphia experiment (Turner). Allende’s notes each describe the Philadelphia Experiment and many things affiliated with it. Allende’s first note talked mostly about what happened when he witnessed the ship disappear. Upon Jessup obtaining the first note, he simply thought that Allende was crazy. Jessup assumed that Allende was a crackpot and did not know what he was talking about (Turner). Although Jessup did not believe Allende at the time, he still did take three different considerations (Moore 85). Jessup’s first though was that it was most likely fake, and that he was either crazy or created the entire story in his mind (85). The second thought was that all the events Allende talked about were true (85). His last thought was that the letters could have been exaggerated and distorted (85). About 2 year after Jessup received the first letter, he was contacted by Captain Sidney Sherry and Commander George Hoover. Both of the people were naval researchers. The two of them had received a copy of Jessup’s book. In the book were annotations made by who Jessup thought he recognized as Allende. The annotations in the book were notes on the Philadelphia Experiment and connections with Jessup’s book. The navy had discovered a hidden secret, and Jessup was beginning to believe Allende (Turner). After the previous event, Jessup claimed that his life was becoming “plagued”. His life and research both got progressively worse. Jessup also then claimed that “strange coincidences” began to happen. In 1959 Jessup talked to one of his friends and said he had finally found something big. The day
Triangle of Darkness
The water of the Atlantic Ocean between Florida, Puerto Rico and Bermuda seems so nice and pleasing and relaxing. However, it is a deadly part of ocean blamed for many disappearances and is best known as the Bermuda Triangle. The Bermuda Triangle covers about 1.3 million square kilometers of the Atlantic Ocean. Over the centuries, ship and planes have disappeared and people have gone missing without a trace and no answer to why or how it happens. There are several theories behind…
time. Most charter associations say they lack the space to adequately meet their current and future enrollment needs (Education Week, 12/1/13). The credibility of the “waiting list” can also be questioned. The waiting list of 19,000 students in Philadelphia for better charter schools, even though there was availability in lower performing schools. This leads us to realize that there is a need to meet demand and improve on high performing charter facilities. The demand for these schools is highly…
Jonathan Edwards- Jonathan Edwards (October 5, 1703 – March 22, 1758) was a Christian preacher and theologian. Edwards "is widely acknowledged to be America's most important and original philosophical theologian," and one of America's greatest intellectuals. Edwards's theological work is broad in scope, but he was rooted in Reformed theology, the metaphysics of theological determinism, and the Puritan heritage. Recent studies have emphasized how thoroughly Edwards grounded his life's work on…
The Mercury Seven were the group of seven tested astronauts that where picked by NASA on April 9, 1959. The mercury 7 were also referred to as the Original Seven or Astronaut Group 1 Project Mercury. These 7 astronauts were picked during the Cold War because of a contest for supremacy between the United States and the Soviet Union in the years following World War II. When the Soviet Union launched the Sputnik on October 4, 1957, tensions between the two superpowers rose, because…

Red Bull – The Anti-brand brand
Red Bull was launched in Austria in 1987, and in the 25 years that has passed since then, many things have happened that could and should affect the way Red Bull markets and brands its product as opposed to how it was done in the years after the launch.
All though Red Bull was launched in 1987, it was not until 1992 that the company began expanding its distribution – first to other…
The Positive Relationship Between Science and Religion
Throughout history we can find many instances where religion was strongly opposed to scientific research. For example, the Catholic Church’s objection to Galileo’s defense of Copernicus’ heliocentric model where he offered his observations that he felt furthered the theory that the planets revolved around the Sun. At that time, the belief that the Holy Scriptures were perhaps inaccurate was one thing, but attempting…
