Wow, do you and I ever have a lot of ground to cover. You are so far off of having any Oak Island knowledge, I am not sure I can lead you to a conclusion that will assist you in any way. Plus your complete lack of understanding and obliqueness is not going to make this easy. But, in the spirit of taking on difficult projects, here we go.
Woods hole was not looking for the flood tunnel or drains specifically. The last person I am aware of who actually worked the drains, was Robert Restall and maybe Dan Blankenship in the late 60s.
Oh, the search was done by those who had a vested interest in finding evidence and then they have kept that proof of that evidence from being examined by the Wood Hole Institute. I stand corrected…Oh wait, no I don’t.
The dye test you are willing to dismiss so quickly (terrible lack of knowledge on your part) was in fact very successful.
In showing that dye put into bore hole X-10 didn’t leak into the bay…OK
It is not up to me to scold Woods Hole that they did not publicize a private expedition on their web site, but it appears that you are even doubting they were there. Man oh man, do you ever have a terrible case of disbelief. Wow, astounding, lets continue.
Wow you are way off here. I have absolutely no doubt that Wood Hole went to Oak Island. It is also apparent that the lack of evidence that they found there is also not worth them putting information on their web page about it. Feel free to make the inquiry with them your self through their web page.
Really pleased that you note I am a tour guide, this is a very positive step for you, finally, recognition of some truth about Oak Island.
You being a tour guide, and having apparently written or at least contributed to books on Oak Island (Books which are for sale presumably…are your tour services also for sale or do you work just for tips) just places you with a conflict of interest in identifying the truth. Who would want to come to a non mysterious Oak Island…Who would buy a book about Aspen Island? Where is that you ask? Does it matter? There is no treasure there either.
If you want to now why the land owners did not "allow" these groups on the island, then you better ask them yourself.
Several media outlets on their programs of Oak Island have said that the owner will not allow them on to the land or has requested exorbantant amounts to conduct what they refered to as restricted studies. Agter all you research, I'm sure this is no surprise to you. The question is still one for the Owner: What do you fear that you won't allow unrestricted access to a research group. Why try to charge them large amounts to do this research? Only answer is fear that the lack of treasure will be proven and he hopes to reclaim his lossand maybe make a profit before they prove there is no treasure there. But with all your research, I'm sure that this is all well known to you.
Very few people get unrestricted access to all of Oak Island. To the treasure hunters, this is a pretty important place and people are not permitted to walk it willy nilly for obvious reasons, well, obvious to those of us who have been there or have read a book.
Well enlighten me…because the only obvious reasons would be:
1) The fear that someone would steal the treasure Ha ha ha….oh man…
2) The fear that a true investigative team would prove once and for all that the whole thing was a hoax (the real fear of the current land owner)
3) The investigative team would uncover environmental and safety hazards created by the treasure hunter’s rape of the island.
None of the findings you have offered as evidence stand up to scientific scrutiny. But please continue.
No, wrong. It is you who will not accept the evidence, lets make that perfectly clear, the scientists do, but you don't. But please, you continue.
Wow I can play that game too “No you are wrong”. However, I have refuted all the evidence you have presented…now if you would like to actually offer more evidence instead of hiding behind the “You are wrong” comments.
If you actually read one of my former posts to you, it will become abundantly clear that I don't necessarily agree that there is a treasure on Oak Island, you really must actually read the words my friend, you are missing important stuff here. I know you are defending your position but you are not doing a great job.
I’m glad to hear that you aren’t completely taken in by the hoax. But I realize that it is a big draw to that area of Canada…beautiful country up there, but no Disney World for the tourists.
Please tell me what “stuff” I am missing.
Answer some of those questions I posed to you. Surely you have more than words on a computer screen don't you, where are your examples of fraud, come on, lets see it, you do have it don't you?
So you haven’t read Dick’s article. You really have no idea of the early investment in treasure finding companies at Oak Island? OK. Is there a current Scam going on…I don’t believe so. I think that the current land owner may be hoping to get more investment money for his digs at Oak island or maybe keep the land value high by maintaining the legend and not allowing it to be proven untrue once and for all. He’s sunk what at least $10 mil into Oak island and gotten nothing out of it…any businessman would want to recoup their losses, one way or the other.
If you like, we can allow you to gracefully bow out of this and you can simply say, no I don't have anything. I will persist until you tell me what you have other than an uninformed opinion. Come on, tell ‘ol Uncle tanky.
I can assure you, I am no little old lady. I have been looking at this mystery for over thirty years and I have read every book, every web page, talked to the treasure hunters, and their adversaries and many, many sceptics. I have held the evidence in my hand and reviewed the scientific papers that accompany them.
Wow, 30 years…that is a lot of time invested in something that has shown no value…Kind of like learning Klingon.
30 years…that is a long time and a lot of effort to have to go back and admit was wasted on an old hoax.
30 years… and it only took me a short time to find actual credible sources providing compelling evidence that it is a hoax.
Don’t feel too bad, people thought that the sun rotated around the earth for thousands of years in till Galileo in a few short moments proved them wrong.
30 years and no treasure and you “don't necessarily agree that there is a treasure on Oak Island”. So your research is paying off. Glad you are seeing things my way.
