Phil Schneider, mental illness and SSI.
INFO ON PHIL SCHNEIDER, from a highly reliable source:
“Regarding Phil Schneider, I became aware of his story, I think in 1993 or shortly after that time, while we were living in Banner Elk, North Carolina, because someone had transcribed one of his talks and uploaded the text onto the then beginning Internet.
After reading it, I decide to do research, and contacted as many people as possible that were friends and relatives of his.
What I found out from his older brother George and sister Polly disturbed me.
Phil was a self mutilator and had cut his thumb off with a hack saw in the basement of his fathers house on the day of his sister’s wedding.
Polly told me this in a letter that she sent me after George and I talked on the phone.
George was in the Air Force, served in Vietnam, and at the time we talked was a sheriff on the Portland River Boat Patrol.
They both told me that Phil did none of things that he claimed, was not a geologist, had never worked for any of those companies, and could not keep a job very long, because of his mental instability.
He married after telling all these stories and that is why his wife believed them.
He usually started off his talks by saying that the major reason for going public was his best friend was murdered in a park and had been in the airforce.
I contacted family and friends of that best friend and they all said that he had never been in the Air Force.
On and on it goes.
Because this story was posted when the Internet was just beginning in the 90’s it has taken on a life of its own and been copied and circulated over and over.
Circular knowledge is not knowledge at all, it is just repeating what someone else says.
Phil’s family are Jewish and came from Russia, and what really hurt and perplexed the family members in Oregon was Phil telling the world that his father served as an officer on one of the German U-Boats during WWII.
In reality his father along with his uncle were born and raised in Oregon, went to college and became medical doctors,
served in the USN and his father worked with folks in developing the first nuclear sub the Nautilus.
When Phil’s father died, Otto Oscar Schneider, Phil stole Navy blank letterhead paper from his dad and created letters using that stock and circulated and showed it to people at his conferences.
Phil and his friend who he says was in the Air Force created a newsletter and were doing research like all of us about UFO’s etc.
So why he went off the deep end and started telling all these stories is a mystery.”
