Hi John,

Before I proceed, let me create a bit of an analogy:

In one room, you've got the world's greatest doctor. In another
room, you've got the world's sickest patient. Running in
between, you've got someone charging a profit to relay
information between the two. But ultimately, the doctor never
gets to see the patient and the patient never gets any better.

Seem familiar?

Bob Shell certainly has a great degree of photographic
expertise; there's no argument about that. But neither he, nor
anyone else (other than Santilli), has actually seen or handled
the original film or talked directly with the cameraman.
Therefore, it doesn't really matter what Bob's background is. He
might as well be a mechanic or a dish washer or a home maker or
a shoe salesman. His experience can't be applied if the patient
is unavailable. And Santilli will always make sure the patient
is unavailable.

So what's left? Only an opinion from looking at video.

So who are you to argue?

Within that limited arena, your opinion is just as valid as
Bob's, regardless of your own background. Despite popular myth
the AA film, itself, has not been investigated at all. The only
thing that's been investigated is Santilli and Santilli's
representation of it.

I do not intend to change your view about whether or not you
think the AA film is real. On the other hand, don't temper your
own beliefs by buying into the myth that AA has withood the
scrutiny of professionals and countless man-hours of
investigative work by people like Bob.

It hasn't.

AA isn't a mystery because Bob Shell's expertise was put to the
test; on the contrary. Bob never got close enough to apply his
experience. AA is a mystery simply because Santilli keeps it
that way. In fact, the last thing that Santilli wants is for Bob
to see the original film.

That's the only truth behind Alien Autopsy.

Take care,

Roger Evans
