Did the US Navy Actually Teleport a Ship?

The year was 1943. The USA had been involved in World War Two
for a couple of years and during that summer on the high seas U.S. destroyers and other
Allied ships were involved in a bloody battle with German U-boat submarines. The “Battle of the Atlantic” would become
the longest continuous military campaign of the war, and it would take thousands and thousands
of lives belonging to the Allied Forces and the German military. Shipyards in Britain, the U.S. and Canada
were more than busy, but it was at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard where something special, something
verging on the utterly fantastic, was supposedly taking place. This would become known as the Philadelphia
Experiment, and now we are going to tell you how that allegedly went down. As the story goes, at that American shipyard
in Philadelphia a new destroyer was being built and it went by the name of the USS Eldridge. But this was no ordinary destroyer, far from
it. It was being equipped with technology no country
had, or had even heard about. This technology related to something called
“electrical field manipulation”, and what this did was make the ship invisible to anyone
else. This apparently came to fruition on July 22,
1943. We are told on this day in front of government
and military officials the scientists disappeared the ship, with crew intact, right in front
of their eyes. A witness said he heard the generators buzz
and then a strange blue light seemed to encapsulate the destroyer… and then poof, it was gone. To say the least the onlookers were completely
baffled. To baffle them even more, there are reports
that the Elbridge appeared somewhere else, at another shipyard in another part of the
U.S. and then reappeared back in Philadelphia. That’s one story anyhow, because another
story says those scientists didn’t introduce teleportation until later that year in October. Some accounts even say when the ship came
back there were sailors on board, but some of them had been fused to various parts of
the steel. Some of these people were apparently mangled
and broken, which adds some amount of horror to the tale. Apparently when the ship was teleported in
the second experiment and just appeared in the water near the Philadelphia shipyard someone
saw it, and he was aboard another ship, the SS Andrew Furuseth. It sounds like an outlandish tale, but a lot
of people believe it’s true. Now we must try and separate fact from fiction. So we’ll introduce an astronomer and science
fiction writer named Morris K. Jessup. Some reports say he’d been in touch with
an anonymous person who had been on the Andrew Furuseth, although later accounts say the
writer was told about the experiments by a guy named Carl Meredith Allen. We can’t tell you much about him, but he’s
been called a UFO conspiracy theorist and a publicity seeker. You can tell us if that’s true at the end
of the show. Jessup lived an embattled life. He was an educated man who became an astronomer,
but his real love was writing books. He wrote some books on UFOs in the 50s, notably
his “The Case for the UFO” in 1955. This book did ok, and he believed he could
make a living from writing. His second book didn’t do well though and
subsequently his manuscripts that followed were rebuffed by his publisher. To make matters worse his wife left him in
1958. A year later he was depressed and despondent,
although as the tale goes he called one of his friends to tell her he had something important
to say regarding the Philadelphia Experiment. A day later and he was found dead. His body was found inside a car; a hose had
been connected to the window from the exhaust pipe, and the engine had been turned on. He had apparently taken his own life and died
after inhaling the fumes. This has of course led conspiracy theorists
to say he was killed because he knew too much about the secret experiments conducted by
the U.S. military, although his friends later came out and said he had talked about killing
himself for weeks, even months. That’s the sad story of Morris Jessup. Now back to this guy named Carl Meredith Allen,
the person who first said he had seen the experiments with his own eyes. He wrote about 50 letters to Jessup relating
to what he had seen, but at the time he used the name Carlos Miguel Allende. Sometimes he’d say he’d been taught by
the great Albert Einstein, and he claimed to understand something called “unified
field theory.” This was a theory introduced by Einstein,
and it’s not easy to explain in a few words. The dictionary definition is this, “A theory
that describes two or more of the four interactions (electromagnetic, gravitational, weak, and
strong) previously described by separate theories.” Or as Live Science puts it, “A field theory
refers generally to why physical phenomena happen, and how these phenomena interact with
nature.” Anyway, we are guessing Carlos Miguel Allende
didn’t understand it and he certainly had no proof of it being anything but a theory. To this day it’s never been proven. But Allende wrote to Jessup saying he was
sure the theory was possible because he’d seen a ship disappear and that was proof. The thing was, he was the only person at the
time who said he’d seen this happen. We should add that some people say that it
was this delusional man that partly drove Jessup to hooking up his car with that noxious
hose. Jessup did at least try to investigate the
claim, but there was just no evidence. Allende kept pestering him, saying it was
true, and this frustrated Jessup. In 1957 the Navy’s Office of Naval Research
even approached Jessup and told him they’d received something strange in the post. The package contained one of Jessup’s UFO
books, but inside were scribbled notes describing extraterrestrial technology and ramblings
about unified field theory. Yep, Allende had done that, although it was
supposed to look like the notes had been made by three people, or two people plus an alien. It gets stranger, though, because the Office
of Naval Research then actually published 127 copies of this book with the added parts. This stress, along with his wife leaving him
and his career on the line no doubt was too much for Jessup. As for Allende, he lived to a ripe old age
and died in 1994. During his lifetime Allende would confess
that the whole thing was a hoax, but then later he would change his mind and say it
was fact. This is why some people have said he was a
delusional publicity seeker. But to those people that believe in UFOs and
that the USA has always been doing out-of-this-world stuff at its various black sites, what Allende
said was gasoline on a fire. It doesn’t help matters that anyone who
wants to can see the Seaman Certificate of Carl Meredith Allen. We’ve seen it, so if any part of his story
is true it’s the fact he was a seaman. Then things got even weirder in the 1980s. That’s because someone decided to make a
movie called “The Philadelphia Experiment.” Now we all know that we shouldn’t believe
everything we seen on the big screen, but for one man watching this film brought back
some memories. His name was Al Bielek, and while the film
came out in 1984 he watched it four years later. He claimed to have watched the movie and after
that his repressed memories about the actual Philadelphia Experiment came back to him. He said he’d also seen the ship tele-transport. He also claimed to have traveled into the
future and seen the mid-21st century. He said he’d been part of something called
the “The Montauk Project” and among other weird things it was concerned with time travel. According to Bielek, he’d been on board
the USS Eldridge when it was disappeared. He claimed to have been in the body of another
man and been with that man’s brother. He said that when the ship disappeared they
both decided to jump overboard, but instead of hitting water they drifted through clouds
until they passed out. When they woke up they were in a hospital
somewhere. They were covered in radiation burns, but
what really got their attention was the fact that the year was 2137. This all came back to him after seeing that
movie. There was more, too, that came back. For instance, he said he’d visited the twenty-eighth
century. He said cities then were governed by computer
systems. At that time the world was populated by only
300 million people. He made more outrageous claims, such as visiting
Mars, or describing one of his sojourns in the year of 6037. There was nothing to back any of this up of
course. In 1994 a French astrophysicist and ufologist
Jacques F. Vallee wrote a piece called “Anatomy of a Hoax: The Philadelphia Experiment Fifty
Years Later.” He asked people to read it and come forward
if they knew anything about this alleged experiment. One person did, and his name was Edward Dudgeon. He has served in the U.S. Navy during the
second world war. Dudgeon said that during the 1940s the USA
did actually try in some ways to make ships invisible. But it’s not what you might think. What they tried to do was wrap electrical
cable around the hulls of ships to try and make the ships not visible to underwater mines
and magnetic torpedoes. This is hardly paranormal stuff. The Germans had been planting such mines and
using magnetic weapons. Those mines were supposed to connect to any
passing ships, so the Americans attempted to make that impossible. He said that this process was called “degaussing”
and he added that at the time there was talk of this being something that made ships invisible. You could call what happened next a result
of Chinese whispers. People talked about invisible ships, and it
seems some of them took this literally, not just relating to ships being able to evade
magnetic weapons. Furthermore, in 1999 the Philadelphia Inquirer
ran a piece about sailors who had served on the USS Eldridge. They said at the time when it was supposed
to have disappeared in Philadelphia it was actually in Brooklyn. The ship’s log also said this was a fact. All the sailors who’d been aboard the ship
agreed, and so it seems Dungeon’s account of why the hoax manifested is quite credible. Nonetheless, the conspiracy theorists just
say this is the military covering up what really happened. They will tell you that the sailors had been
forced to say that, and indeed, someone somewhere can make great hunks of metal just disappear. It’s just a pity no one in this world has
seen that happen since. Our conclusion is that the Philadelphia Experiment
is about as plausible as the existence of UFOs or that mythical beast in Scotland the
Loch Ness Monster. We believe that Allende likely had mental
problems and Jessup just was unfortunate to get caught up in the mess. As for the time-travelling Bielek who’d
broke bread with folks in the year of 6037, we dare to say that we think the man was out
of his mind. But, do you agree with our conclusion? Can you offer any evidence to the contrary? Tell us in the comments. Also, be sure to check out our other video

  1. remember Soviet union was saying chernobyl was a myth and if it wasent for the guy who killed his self we would never knew what really happen we would only knew that a reactor was bad cause the crew was bad and not because Soviet union was a cheap country! so i highly doubt that the US wouldnt brainwash people and make people look crazy to cover up something or putting a HOSE with gas inside someone car….but then again i might be wrong! nobody knows for sure but never trust anyone blindly!

  2. The supposed science behind all this stuff is very interesting and plausible. And al beilik was not exactly a nut case.. legit, maybe not.. but a very smart guy who knew way more about a topic in a time when the information was very unavailable .

  3. Nobody: ain’t enough conspiracy theories!

    Info graphics: wait! Have you heard of the the declassified teleportation files!

  4. Idrk if I think this is very credible, since a lot of other vids of this channel seem to be like propaganda for the government

  5. People’s socks disappear all the time. I have no doubt that a Naval vessel could do it too. Maybe it doesn’t happen often. Maybe it requires certain, pristine conditions.

    What’s with the love story in the movie? Does that have any historical relevance?

    And ya know….. just like trees falling in the woods. – if a boat turns invisible and teleports in the sea, and someone isn’t around to see it……

    It’s a cool concept though. I’d buy it.

  6. Has anybody ever wondered why the US manages to stay decades ahead of other countries in military technology. Nobody ever know about the Manhattan Project and if we didn't drop the bombs I guarantee we would know to this day.

  7. Ohhh yeah I first heard about this on the “Tinfoil Hat Podcast with Sam Tripoli”. Really interesting stuff and there’s more to the story than what’s presented here FYI👍

  8. The Philadelphia experiment was a hoax to cover up the transportation of nuclear bomb components and hide the manhattan project

  9. IF we did teleport a ship, it was completely by accident and I guarantee they have no idea how they did it and we'll likely never figure it out.

  10. "The year is 1943, the usa has been involved in ww2 for many years" also known as they barely just joined the war

  11. Shooting fish in a barrel, debunking the USS Eldridge AND Roanoake. (they all joined the indians and the religious leaders just covered it up due to the "ungodly nature" of living with the natives and taking them for spouses.

  12. Well they're still using the teleportation should they not just going to stop using that I mean hello why does nobody say that that's like yall act all just like brain dead zombies or somethingo

  13. Degaussing coils on ships was a real thing, they did not make the ship invisible but made them somewhat anti-magnetic. I don't think they are used anymore as mines these days can't be as easily fooled.

  14. "As PlAuSiBlE aS uFoS"

    Uh the Navy confirmed that UFOs, or rather UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon) exist, so get off your high horse and come hop on this Pale Horse.

  15. Low key the government could have done this and took advantage of every situation that people can use to prove them wrong, if there proven wrong no one will know its real. Wouldn’t be the first time the I.S. Did it.

  16. As plausible as the existence of ufos??? Do you live under a rock? Back in September the US NAVY and department of defense admitted they do exist and the pentagon has been studying them for decades. Get real
