Humans Versus Aliens – Did The Battle At Dulce Really Happen?
Small town of Dulce, New Mexico, located on the Colorado-New Mexico border is considered to be one of the most important places when we talk about UFO conspiracies. It is alleged place of a secret, underground alien base.
Philip Schneider is the main character of the story that happened in 1979 in Dulce. He’s an engineer who was employed on a project that involved building a secret alien base. It’s said that he is one of three people who survived the battle at Dulce.
He claims that the presence of the Green Berets and Special Forces arouse the suspicion in him. Those suspicions quickly came true when he stumbled upon tall, thin, grey alien that looked like he emerged from a bad sci-fi movie. Then, Philip panicked and shot both aliens. Both? We thought there was only one. Never mind, let’s continue. Then, the third (?!) alien opened fire on the poor engineer and shot him in the fingers with his plasma pistol. After being saved by the Green Beret soldier, chaos broke out. A horrible battle started and 60 people lost their lives. Allegedly. This event has been known as the “Alien-Human Battle of Dulce”.
This “battle” has triggered numerous theories and stories. Paul Bennewitz, businessman, became convinced that he was intercepting electronic communications from alien spacecraft and installations outside of Albuquerque. Also, he believed he had discovered an underground base near Dulce in 1980. Finally, in 1988, he wrote a paper entitled “Project Beta” explaining how the base might be successfully attacked.
Philip Schneider spoke openly about those events, becoming an advocate of the UFO conspiracy theorists. Some people now call him “The Most Courageous Man of Modern Times”. In 1996, he was found dead in his apartment with piano wire wrapped around his neck. His death was declared a suicide, but many people doubt that because it happened just seven months after he did a lecture on what he had discovered. The very lecture that revealed all about the Dulce event. Also, he stated that there were 129 UFO bases across the US and 1,477 all across the world, describing them in detail.
What experts have to say about all of this? Michael Barkun, professor of political science thinks that the Dulce legend was inspired by numerous underground missile installations built during the Cold War. In 1999, the French government published a paper concluding that the US government has withheld evidence of the existence of UFOs. It’s “UFOs and Defense: What Must We Be Prepared For?”
Was Philip Schneider a Hero or a looney? And what do you think? Did the Alien-Human Battle of Dulce really happen?!
