By request: more on Nazis, secret weapons, and UFOs

I have been receiving a few inquiries lately regarding the correlation between Nazis, advanced weapons, and UFOs.
There's a lot of crazy information out there and I have already posted about certain aspects of it, namely that many Nazis supposedly escaped to a secret Antarctic base after the war and that the German war machine might have been more advanced than we realized.  But here is what we know for sure:

-There was indeed a German expedition to Antarctica in 1938. They claimed a swath of land and named it New Swabia.

-The German military had been experimenting with rocket propelled weapons such as the V-2 and with advanced aircraft that were wing and saucer shaped.  After the war, one American aerospace engineer was quoted as saying, "I have seen enough of their designs and production plans to realize that if they (the Germans) had managed to prolong the war some months longer, we would have been confronted with a set of entirely new and deadly developments in air warfare."

-Allied pilots sighted numerous UFOs while flying over Europe, called "foo fighters" as a slang term.  At the time, these were thought to be secret German aircraft.  That is until we captured Luftwaffe pilots who said they had seen the objects too and assumed they were us.
-As the Air Force conducted its ludicrous Project Blue Book, Capt. Edward J. Ruppelt of the project said, "When WWII ended, the Germans had several radical types of aircraft and guided missiles under development. The majority were in the most preliminary stages, but they were the only known craft that could even approach the performance of objects reported to UFO observers."

That's about as solid as the information gets.  From there on out, it's whack-o city.  My specialty.

There are those who claim that the German Vril Society, a supposed secret society in Berlin, worked in cahoots with the occult organization known as The Thule Society and with the Nazi party to contact an alien race.  They were successful and acquired actual flying saucers.  It was all too late, however, as the Allies stormed across the homeland, forcing the Nazis and the Vrils to flee guessed it...Antarctica.
Another proponent of the Antarctica theory is Ernst Zundel.  This guy is a real winner.  An antisemitic publisher and holocaust denier, Zundel openly claimed that the UFOs were indeed flying saucers but were piloted by Nazis, flying out of their secret base in Antarctica.  From there, they would soon conquer the world with their advanced weapons.  Zundel even offered seats on an expedition, for the low low price of only $9999 per, that he said would go to Antarctica to find the entrance to the Hollow Earth where the Nazis had supposedly made allies with cryptoterrestrials.  An associate of Zundel's asserts that Zundel confessed it was all a marketing scheme and the facts appear to bear this out.  After all, they've had since 1945 and they've yet to take over the world.  Maybe the "UFO weapons" really aren't that advanced after all.
On The History Channel, both UFO Hunters and Ancient Aliens appear convinced that the Nazi high command came into possession of a crashed alien spacecraft.  The genius German scientists and engineers (which they were, no one could or should debate that) reverse-engineered the saucer and built replicas for themselves.  Again it was too late for the war but people like Wernher von Braun brought the knowledge with them to America and began the U.S. space program.  Supposedly, someone once complimented von Braun on the ingenuity of German aerospace technology and he replied, "it didn't come from us.  It come from 'out there.' "  
The notion that Nazis were working with anti-matter is much tougher to pin down.  This has long been among the allegations in terms of secret Nazi weapons technology.  Seems a bit unlikely that they were since we are only now beginning to understand the properties of anti-matter and learning that it is not merely a science fictional concept.  If anyone has information on the Nazi/anti-matter link, please let me know.  Anti-gravity on the other hand is widely suspected amongst those who support the notion of Nazi/alien collaboration or even just that the Germans had highly advanced weapons that went undeployed.  The aircraft with the saucer shape to them were thought to run on an anti-gravity drive that was still a work in progress at war's end.  Then there's the "Nazi Bell" which may have resulted in the Kecksburg UFO crash of 1965.  More information on that here.  The aircraft with the saucer shape to them were thought to run on an anti-gravity drive that was still a work in progress at war's end.  Then there's the "Nazi Bell" which may have resulted in the Kecksburg UFO crash of 1965.  More information on that here.

Amidst it all there is a bit of solid work.  In his book Arktos: The Polar Myth, Joscelyn Godwin presents a well-balanced look at the "mythology" surrounding our world's poles and this includes the Nazi/Hollow Earth/UFO assertion.  The man's an actual scholar and I recommend the book for a read.

The Nazis have a certain mystique about them.  With so much evil, so many connections to the occult, and an array of true and confirmed advancements in the science of warfare, it's easy to make speculations such as those I've discussed.  Getting tangible evidence for them is quite another matter.  Any claims of such must therefore be weighed with more than a bit of askance.
