You may know Stanton Friedman for any number of reasons. He's a former nuclear physicist, one of the most influential voices in ufology since the 1960s, and he has a new book out called Science Was Wrong. Stan is also a friend and colleague of ours.
In his new book, co-authored with Kathleen Marden, Stan and Kathleen have collected fascinating insights about the pioneers who created or thought up "impossible" ideas that were deemed crazy nonsense, yet ultimately revolutionized our world.
This is not a flying saucer book, per se, although it does have a single chapter, "UFOs," where Stan pulls his research career into a concise line of reasoning.
The impossibilists have had a field day with UFOs for more than 60 years. There has certainly been no shortage of strong, negative proclamations from debunking groups and individuals who refuse to examine the evidence. These proclamations include the false assumption that there is no convincing evidence, only anecdotal data, to support the notion that some UFOs are of extraterrestrial origin; that eyewitness testimony cannot be trusted; that it would be impossible to get to Earth from another star or another galaxy; that the reported maneuvers would be impossible; that governments can't keep secrets; and many other equally foolish statements. It is truly amazing how often one finds scientists making claims about the evidence relating to UFOs.
This is an interesting read, one that shows that even scientists can be wrong (and often are), and we urge you to check it out at your local bookstore, at Amazon.com, or even through Stan's own website or Kathleen's website.
Stan Friedman and Kathleen Marden will be the sole guests on Coast-to-Coast AM with George Noory next Tuesday night, June 8.
