Philadelphia Talking about conspiracy theories …

Some of you may have heard of the

Philadelphia Experiment which was an alleged naval military experiment at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard sometime around October 28th, 1943, in which the U.S. destroyer USS Eldridge was to be rendered invisible to human observers for a brief period (a pretty handy feature during war time!). Some people even reported seeing this ship in another place 346 kms away before it returned to Philadelphia.

Back in 1984, this story was made into a movie and then again in 1993, then a book on the topic was released in 1995.

The story is widely regarded as a hoax. It has nonetheless caused ripples in conspiracy circles.

Interestingly enough, there is an amazing story recorded in the book of Acts about the evangelist Philip. He was baptising a man from Ethiopia and then looked what happened …

"When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing. Philip, however, appeared at Azotus and traveled about, preaching the gospel in all the towns until he reached Caesarea." [Acts 8:39-40. NIV]

Wow, there's some real time and space travel! As someone who travels a fair bit, I've always thought that this would be a cool way to move from one place to another. I wonder if he had any jet-lag? I wonder if his bags went along too? 🙂

  1. Beam me up Scotty. 😉 LOL I’ve also been fascinated by time travel and have seen this movie. God has shown me a glimpse of what it can be like, while praying & fasting a while back. He showed me the WHOLE of Australia and some more revelations…! Absolutely NOTHING is impossible with God. 🙂 Thanks for this interesting post Mark.
