    Dejan, the play is going to depend on your download speed. There is a download icon you can click, wait for it to download to your computer and then play it at normal speed with your video player.

    Yeah, I actually already watched that video on YT. Stanton Freedman obviously has a thing for Zeta Reticuli and he was wrong in the video saying that Zeta Reticuli is 1 billion years older than Sun, suggesting that advanced civilization developed there. It's 1.5-3 G years old, which makes it 1 G years younger than Sun.

    Stanton got into the Betty & Barney Hill case with Kathleen Marden and took the woo-woo choo-choo. I think the Zeta Ridiculi references came from the Marjorie Fish map, which was cool before we knew better. Supposedly recreated the map Betty was shown

    Yeah, I think Freedman went there one step too far. Human memory is so unreliable, particularly after an traumatic event.

    What I find strange is that Freedman, being a scientist, never seriously took to researching trace evidence of which there is a plenty.

    But hey, he brought lots of credibility to the field.

    I liked the guy and regret never seeing him speak. But I heard an interview with him that was surprisingly candid in which he described being a young nuclear engineer lurching from one government contract to the next. Uprooting his family and the financial burden were causing problems and he got into speaking about UFOs by being invited to one of his wife's card parties (or something similar). He found it paid way better and made a career of it.

    He was an entertainer, a public speaker first and everything else after that. I don't doubt he believed a lot of it, but I also doubt he'd say or do anything to interrupt his income stream. He might not directly make stuff up, but he certainly wanted to say stuff that filled the seats.

    Heard of him but don't know that much about him, so I'll reserve comment.

    I throw David Paulides, Walter Bosley, Mike Turber into the the same bucket. They have a credential they use as a fig leaf and then sell whatever it is they're selling while Commenting Seriously on some topic. The goal is to gain publicity, sell books, movies,, whatever. Any benefit to actual research is second.

    Stanton was an icon and deserved his own bucket, but it was the same kind of bucket.

    Forgot. Tom DeLonge. His bucket is the kind with a chrome handle on the side.
