5. Bob Lazar's Extensive Scientific Knowledge
Once Lazar went public in November 1989 following an anonymous TV interview earlier in the year, his past was immediately investigated by the press. As a man claiming to be an expert scientist in rocket engineering, it came as a surprise from investigative journalists to find he had no scientific qualifications to his name.
This discovery cast huge doubts on Lazar's claims that he reverse engineered alien spacecraft at Area 51 as the US military surely wouldn’t hire someone with no credibility. But, the twist in the tail is that Lazar claims the government wiped all his qualifications to discredit him as soon as he went public.
The evidence to support this comes from Lazar’s clearly astonishing scientific knowledge. He is currently the owner of United Nuclear Scientific Equipment and Supplies so he must have some high level scientific knowledge to effectively and safely run such a company.
