Intelligent UFOs are visiting Earth, says physicist

Stanton T. Friedman
Evidence is overwhelming that intelligently controlled vehicles are visiting the Earth, which would lead to a cosmic Watergate if disclosed by the government, a nuclear physicist said Saturday in Murfreesboro.

Physicist Stanton T. Friedman said he has not seen an unidentified flying object but he hasn’t seen Tokyo either, even though he knows the city exists.

His beliefs are based on years of study and interviews with citizens who sighted UFOs.

Friedman, known as the Flying Saucer Physicist, made his remarks before 80 people during the Tennessee Mutual Unidentified Flying Object Network meeting at the Baymont Suites on Armory Drive. He is a former classmate of Carl Sagan.

During his lecture, Friedman outlined four conclusions:

• The evidence is overwhelming that Planet Earth is being visited by intelligently controlled extraterrestrial spacecraft. In other words, some UFOs are alien spacecraft. Most are not.

• The subject of flying saucers represents a kind of Cosmic Watergate, meaning that some few people in major governments have known since July, 1947, when two crashed saucers and several alien bodies were recovered in New Mexico, that indeed some UFOs are ET. As noted in 1950, it’s the most classified U.S. topic.

• None of the arguments made against the first two conclusions by a small group of debunkers such as Carl Sagan, Friedman’s University of Chicago classmate for three years, can stand up to careful scrutiny.

• The Flying Saucer story is the biggest story of the millennium: visits to Planet Earth by aliens and the U.S. government's cover-up of the best data (the bodies and wreckage) for over 50 years.

The federal government is not close to disclosure about UFOs because it would have serious implications to technology and the economy. Church attendance would increase but the stock market would decrease. Fundamentalist church groups would be upset because it would be a contradiction to their doctrine.

Also, governments fear young people will feel allegiance to the world, not their own countries. Big powers would be afraid of loss of power.

UFOs are coming to Earth using energy the world doesn’t know about now, he said. Big oil companies might feel threatened if this technology were shared with mankind.

The more education a person has, the more likely they are to believe the Earth is being visited by UFOs, Friedman said.

Friedman first became interested in UFOs after reading a book in 1958. He worked for 14 years on the development of classified, advanced nuclear and space systems for GE, General Motors, Westinghouse, McDonnell Douglas and Aerojet General Nucleonics.

He gave his first lecture in 1967 and in the mid-1970s began the civilian investigation of the recovery of crashed flying saucers near Roswell, N.M.

Friedman spoke to Jesse Marcell Sr., who was the intelligence officer at a nearby air base. Marcell went to the crash site with a rancher and viewed the debris field. Jesse Marcell Jr. later wrote “Roswell Legacy” about his father’s experiences and his recollection of his father bringing home part of the debris.

Friedman interviewed Barney and Betty Hill, who claimed they were abducted Sept. 19, 1961 while driving in New Hampshire. They went under hypnosis separately and told about their experiences.

He has published more than 90 UFO articles, co-authored “Crash at Corona: The Definitive Study of the Roswell Incident” and the new 2008 “Flying Saucers and Science.”

During the lecture, Friedman showed members a power point presentation about the Roswell investigation in 1947.

The meeting was broadcast worldwide on short wave.

Max Mitchell of Kingsport, the state chief MUFON investigator, said there have been 96 reports in 2009 of UFOs investigated by MUFON as of November in Tennessee.

Participant Don Odom of Lewisburg, a retired Tennessee Wildlife Resources Officer, said his most memorable sighting while driving. He stopped his truck and a 150-foot long object floated by. It was 300 to 500 feet away and had 22 porthole lights and strobe lights on the top and bottom. It was red, white and blue.

He is now a MUFON field investigator.

Alyson Burgess, director of public relations for Tennessee MUFON headquartered in Memphis, said the mission statement of MUFON emphasizes the scientific study of UFOs for the benefit of humanity.

“We here at Tennessee MUFON take the mission statement to heart by galvanizing our current membership and helping it to grow,” Burgess said. “We may be part of a scientific finding that may benefit mankind.”

"A Nut"

While hardly ready to dismiss Friedman as a nut case (ghost hunters with blinking K-2 meters I affectionatley refer to as ghostometers far less credible than this guy) neither am I ready to accept regulary scheduled visits from inhabted planets that have learned to travel through vast expanses of space, land, do whatever it is extraterrestrials do once they arrive and leave undetected in an age when just about everyone on planet earth has a cell phone with a camera.

OWWW..... I'm still recovering from my alien anal probe.

Unintelligently controlled vehicles can be found on I-24 every day...

This person is not even worth commenting about!!!He needs to get a life and a job if he is able to hold one.

I wonder how many people commenting on this article go to church every Sunday...

He is a "physicist"?

Where did he get his degree? What are his credentials?

As usual, the media goes for sensationalism, rather than journalism.

I am a science fiction fan, but I am also a critical thinker. This article lacks something.

He hasn't changed his spots any, it was over 22 years ago I listened interviews of him. I think I remember him having some NASA credentials as well.

I have no concrete evidence that there are or are not UFO's with aliens aboard. That being said, I can't deny or confirm their existance. We may all have opinions on the matter but one opinion is as good as any other, no mater their belief.

I moved from Nashville in 1999 to serve as a missionary in Roswell NM, and also serve as a conference organizer here. See for some free online videos and for my most recent lecture.

I agree that Stanton is an excellent lecturer and Farmall is right, his message remains constant. However I feel that he and many others are being deceived by the phenomenon.

I received a rambling, incoherent & somewhat abusive email about my post here.

Frankly, I cannot imagine why.

I made no comment about the material, or the subject, but made a polite inquiry about the speaker's credentials, & criticised the article, not the topic.

However, if my rude & babbling correspondant is the kind of supporter Mr Friedman attracts, perhaps it would be better not to invite him to Murfreesboro in future.

This nut is making a GOOD living off his crazy ideas.

"HuskyLover writes on 12/8/09

And what has church attendance got to do with comments on extraterrestrials?

"Bosda writes on 12/9/09

Interesting the article left that out: Stanton T. Friedman received his BSc. and MSc. Degrees in physics from the University of Chicago in 1955 and 1956.

I find it ironic that the same people who are so very quick to dismiss scientific opinion and eyewitness accounts of UFOs believe in the whole Jesus thing where absolutely no tangible proof of his existence can be presented. People take religion so seriously on faith alone but call an educated physicist a "nut case" because he believes that UFOs exist based on research, eyewitness accounts and corroborating evidence?

Stanton Friedman is a lot smarter than anyone posting here.

He is also correct.
December 11, 2009 at 11:13am
Husky, no one is denying the existence of UFOs. There are all kinds of "Unidentified Flying Objects" that have been reported. Here is the rub: There is absolutely no tangible or credible evidence they are controlled by intelligent extraterrestrials. No credible empirical scientific evidence exists we have been visited by intelligent life from other galaxies. Indeed, religion is based on faith, a belief in God, prayer and miracles of which there seem to be just as much credible evidence, if not more, than extraterrestrials. So Freidman is not to be questioned because he is educated? Nonsense. A much wiser man than I once pointed out, correctly so, that the world is full of educated derelicts. Education does not confer immunity from inane ideas or preposterous theories.

I have seen Tokyo, and it is real. So are UFOs and Stanton Friedman.

I met Dr.Stanton in 1991 @ Yokens in NH.
He is blessed with intelligence, he loves and cares about good people who he feels needs to hear the truth. A very honorable man.
I have met honest people in the Mufon circle that experienced repercussions for disclosing pertinent information or for contacting classified abducties.
Therefore darkness prevails over the majority of citizens.
