UFO researcher Stanton Friedman says UFOs aren’t real

Nuclear physicist and longtime UFO researcher Stanton Friedman was recently a guest on Podcast UFO, a weekly show hosted by Martin Willis exploring the UFO phenomenon.

During the interview, Friedman candidly stated, “I just want to make sure everybody realizes there really aren’t any unidentified flying objects . . . It’s a great story, it’s exciting, but it’s fiction.”

This bombshell statement by Friedman was, of course, an April Fool’s Day gag.

  1. It is simple to mold the minds of the inexperienced and most have no choice but to “believe” what they are told.

    Experience means everything..and I can say with fact and certainty, that we are not alone. ET exists and do come here in crafts that are not earth /man made.

    Being abducted by extraterrestrials opens ones eyes..and they can never be closed again.

    Google Taken By The Greys…to learn of actual experience to truth through close encounters. My close encounters..not hearsay or fiction..it is reality.

  2. April fools day had everyone’s head going wild. It’s just a joke. Stanton Friedman had a good laugh at that one.

  3. He is basically stating that every UFO is catalogued in the military, and every alien race, so basically they are identified, by a drawing-photo-military witness- nuclear witness-soprano officials. So in theory he has a rite to say it.

  4. nut crackers what you all are who believe in theses stupid things
    there are no ALIENS nor UFO’s why cant you all just understand that

    science-fiction is nice and all
    and i suppose we all hope it was real

    just for a 1 example what is not an ufo

    -light:light cannot be an object -> no mass
    all the mysterious and strange light are just
    natural concurring phenoms or regular
    lights what whom see as non regular of some reason
    during the day or during the night,in a place
    forests,above fields,mountains etc

    light is light, just light BELIEVE IN THAT

    and one more thing: haven’t you all been thought
    what really those so called abductions really are
    scientific proof? hello, anyone? you all no the answer

  5. Either he’s joking or the shadow government put pressure on him to retreat his comments on flying saucers and aliens. bc normally he always was a believer in alines and aline spacecraft. But it wouldn’t surprise me if the military/industrial complex didn’t like him getting out the truth.
