...funny guy.

He also won a bet with pseudocynic Klass and proved Menzel was NSA - bravo!

yes, that was some good reaserch. Menzel was very effective/destructive, even to this day.

Very sad news indeed.

I loved listening to Stan’s lectures and many radio shows, and I will miss him. He didn’t “shilly shally” on matters about his position or stance and I felt he was spot on with much of what he said and researched, particularly on aspects like Project Blue Book Special Report 14, MJ-12 (and his research into Donald Menzel), us being a primitive society whose major activity is tribal warfare, and that technological progress comes from doing things differently in an unpredictable way. Loved the way he would call out some stories or counter-intelligence as “baloney” or “malarkey”.

Stan would also often repeat mantras and anecdotes, but I do feel they were at times important and worthy of repetition, even as a means of getting these points to sink in better with some listeners (myself included; am not the best of listeners at times!).

To his great credit, I have used some of his sayings with the hope of enlightening others with regard to the opening of minds on this subject, and that of visitation, or at least opening-up others up to the possibility of such. After all, someday in the future we may ourselves unlock the technological means of deep space travel, and be “visitors” to another civilisation . . . that could snowball pretty quickly if we unlocked the right tools and given our resourcefulness and adaptability.

Respects and I think history will show that along with Hynek and Vallee he brought a scientific authenticity to the field that gave it a legitimacy in the public eye that made it acceptable to take it seriously.

His speech at GCF 2011 was quite impressive, thanks for sharing.

Especially his shift in perspective when he asks what it actually means if ET's technology was 500 or even 100.000 years ahead of ours. That's but a glimpse on cosmic timescales, yet it would set our civilization and theirs worlds apart.

At that point, I think, their technology would appear truly magical to us despite all our high-tech and despite the fact that the same laws of nature seem to apply everywhere (as far as we know).

Been holding off approaching this sad bit of information for a number of reasons. Suffice it to be said that we lost a giant in the UFO Community. Stanton was certainly well-educated and a one-of-a-kind gentleman that had a sharp wit.

Over 10 years ago back in 2008, ATS had the golden opportunity to interview Stanton in several over-air interviews which were then Podcast to the ATS membership. It was suggested that some might like to stroll back down memory lane and re-listen to one of these interviews. One of my favorite lines by Stanton was: "It's an insult to God, if we're the best he can do"

Sad to see such a qualified Ufologist leave us.In relation to the UFO community...he was and still is #1 in my book and he will be missed

My condolences to the family and all those involved --- Rest in peace Stan...

I did have a stimulating conversation with Stan, the last time he was on ATS. We agreed on a lot of things.
