From a faked moon landing, to beliefs that Beyoncé is in the illuminati, there are conspiracy theories all over the Internet. One of the most recent conspiracy theories involves a mysterious voicemail and a possible alien invasion on April 18. It all started when Twitter user @strayedaway tweeted a screen recording of a voicemail on March 13.
The voice mail consists of an automated voice listing what appears to be a random string of words followed by some numbers. At first, the words don’t seem to make any sense, but other users quickly pointed out that the words listed are a part of the military alphabet. Translated, the voicemail says, “S danger, SOS, it’s dire for you to evacuate be cautious they are not humans SOS danger SOS 04.033 96.4230.” But that explanation does not explain what the numbers at the end mean.
Another Twitter user recognized the numbers to be a set of coordinates, which were traced to be just of the coast of Indonesia. The user @strayedaway then posted a screenshot of a direct message he received in Indonesian that is translated to “End the post you just shared about the recording on your phone.” A few days later, @staryedaway shared a tweet that someone took a picture with flash of his house while he was sitting in his car at 3am. People then started to speculate that the voicemail could be a recording of the black box recording on the Malaysian flight that disappeared. A black box on an airplane is meant to record the last interaction on a plane and give information about its location in order for people to gather information about the plane’s status in case it goes down.
While this may seem far fetched, at the time of the voicemail, there was a solar flare storm occurring, and solar flares cause electromagnetic pulses in our atmosphere which could explain how the recording ended up on someone’s phone. The voicemail appeared on @strayedaways phone just one week after the anniversary of when the plane went missing. The belief is that people on the flight were able to survive for a week and eventually were able to find the box and send the recording. With this in mind, the recording appeared on @strayedaway ‘s phone exactly 4 years after the recording was sent.
To recap, the solar flares caused some sort of electromagnetic pulse in the atmosphere which sent the black box recording to the phone. The messages that @strayedaway received only add to the suspicion that aliens were involved as it seems if people are trying to cover something up. Twitter users then found a video on YouTube taken in Indonesia that shows a group of people dirt biking on a trail in the wilderness when they come across an inhuman form run across the trail. While the video is very grainy, it doesn't seem to be an animal, but something otherworldly. The video seems to add proof to the idea that aliens may be present in that area. All of this is fighting, Junior Delaney Smith saying, “it gave me a good scare for a while,” but it goes even further.
@strayedaway then posted some more messages that he had received as a result of his posts. The messages include Morse code, then when translated means, “Message received is well related to Stephen Hawking’ death, you’re not ready to face them.” This message is followed by a list of numbers, the last one being 41818 which corresponds to the date April 18th 2018. Hawking has said in the past on discovery channel that, “If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn't turn out well for the Native Americans.”
A man named Peter McMahon has recently come forward claiming that using Google Earth and NASA imaging he found the missing flight (MH370) off the coast of Round Island near Mauritius. This area supposedly was no included in the areas searched. McMahon has sent his findings to the Australian Transport and Safety Bureau which confirmed that the findings could be the missing aircraft. Reportedly however, US officials have instructed Ocean Infinity to stick to their assigned area in the Indian Ocean, which is away from McMahon’s findings. According to The Week McMahon has said, “Four Americans were sent to Australia to oversee the findings of MH370. They have made sure that all information received has been hidden from the public, even our government – but why?” ...authorities “do not want it found as it’s full of bullet holes, finding it will only open another inquiry”.” Claims of a government cover up only fuel the theory.
Since the original thread was posted, people have brought up more details that add to the theory:
