The Roswell Slides Finally Solved?

Given the controversial events that went down in Mexico just a few days ago, an important question needs to be asked: are we getting any closer to the truth of the Roswell Slides and what they show or don’t show? Well…maybe. Consider the following points, and consider them very carefully. You may think that I’m onto something or you may not. But, at least, be open-minded and check it out.

The Roswell Slides probably originated with Bernerd and Hilda Ray, who lived in Midland, Texas. Hilda was an attorney, while Bernerd was a geologist who had undeniable, provable links to the state of New Mexico (the site of the controversial Roswell affair of July 1947, of course).

Geologists spend a lot of their time in caves, mines, and caverns. New Mexico is the state in which the famous Carlsbad Caverns National Park is located. Only a handful of miles from the Carlsbad Caverns is White’s City, the origins of which date back to the latter part of the 1920s. Up until a few years ago White’s City, New Mexico, was home to something called the Million Dollar Museum.

Although now closed, the Million Dollar Museum (which “existed early in White’s City’s history”) was the site of numerous oddities, including child-mummies, and various human and animal curios. The Million Dollar Museum even has a story attached to it of nothing less than…a dead alien (which was clearly a child, by the way, and not an E.T.). Check out this link for the story of the alien.

The label on the “non-alien body” reads: “No one is sure exactly when the museum acquired this artifact, but it does not appear to be human.” Like the Roswell Slides, many of the displays at the Million Dollar Museum had small placards that were hand-written. Sounds familiar??? (see this link).

Rather notably, the museum also held a number of preserved animal heads, including the head of the twelfth largest moose ever shot in Wyoming. As you may have seen in my previous article on the Roswell Slides, right behind the alleged alien body in the Roswell Slides is…the hair-covered head of an animal. Maybe not a moose, but I know you get my point.

Now, it’s very important to note that the so-called Roswell Slides do not show the same alleged alien body as that which is discussed in the YouTube link above. But, that scarcely matters, since the museum held dozens of mummies. So, with that in mind, consider what you are about to read as a potential scenario:

Bernerd and Hilda Ray

Bernerd and Hilda Ray

Decades ago, Bernerd and Hilda Ray visited the Carlsbad Caverns, specifically because of Bernerd’s work as a geologist, a person who spends significant time in caves and caverns. Before they headed home, the pair stopped off at the very nearby Million Dollar Museum in White’s City – where they photographed a few odd-looking items on display, including one of those child-mummies, and which showed one of the preserved animal heads directly behind it.

And, lo and behold, the whole thing – in a weird and strange fashion – has become part and parcel of the Roswell “crashed UFO” affair. Plus, the distance from Midland, Texas (where Bernerd and Hilda Ray lived) to the Million Dollar Museum in White’s City, New Mexico is only 163 miles.

Sure, this is simply a working hypothesis on my part. But the location (New Mexico), the issue of the Carlsbad Caves, Bernerd Ray’s links to the matter of caves, and the fact that just a few, short miles from the Carlsbad Caves stood a museum filled with certain things of a freak-show nature (including child-mummies and the heads of animals, no less – and which had hand-written, descriptive notes attached to them, too), should – at the absolute very least – encourage us to investigate this matter further. In fact, much further.

My recommendation: a deep search for any and all old photographs of the interior of the Million Dollar Museum in its early years. The town of White’s City was founded in the 1920s, by a man named Charlie White. He lectured in the museum, nearly every Friday night, until his death in 1962. Someone, somewhere, may have a few photos taken during those lectures. Just maybe, there is light at the end of the tunnel, finally, on the matter of the Roswell slides.

PS: Thanks to Adam Gorightly for bringing the matter of the Million Dollar Museum to my attention.
