Listers may be interested in the fact that I have been invited
to appear with Theoretical Physicist, Michio Kaku on his new
radio show Science Fantastic on Saturday, May 20, at 6-7 PM,
Kaku, an expert on String Theory, had appeared in one of the few
good segments on the 2nd half of the Peter Jennings Special on
Feb. 24, 2005. It is ironic that Dr. Seth Shostak, one of the
most prominent SETI cultists, will appear during the previous
hour. The show is supposed to be on about 90 stations of of the
Talkradionetwork.I understand that it is available on the
internet via streaming.
>From what I gather, Kaku thinks maybe 1 or 2% of UFO sightings
can't be explained. I told the producer 10-20% would be closer
to the mark. The Internet seems to show that he is also anti-
nuclear, which I very definitely am not.
There will, I am told, be discussions and then call-ins as well.
Could be interesting... not supposed to be a debate.
Any input from those who may have heard other comments he has
made about UFOs would be appreciated.
>Dr. Kaku appeared on a scientific panel sponsored by the Sci-Fi
>Channel and the Coalition for Freedom of Information in
>Washington DC in 2002 and you can find a link to his talk on

>This should be right up your alley.
Not really. Theoretical types really aren't accountable are
Nobody was talking about the results of programs costing a
billion$ plus on nuclear airplanes, fission and fusion rockets,
nuclear ramjets or the use of cosmic freeloading...
I had almost forgotten about the conference. Just jealous I
wasn't invited I guess... because I would have shown slides of
Saturday should prove interesting... I might sign up for the
$5.95 per month so as to catch the Shostak interview...

good laugh, reading over replies that Kaku will somehow get the better of Friedman, for lack of lesser words!
Reminds me of the last time I saw Steven Greer many many years back, in person at a dinner table talkin' it up about anything and everything to make himself look good. Suddenly Stanton walks by and almost the entire table welcomes Stanton and shakes his hand, totally blowing off Greer in mid- sentence, exception being those beside Greer who honestly looked to be trying to be polite by pretending they care lol.
Stanton might not ALWAYS be correct or mistake-proof, but hes very well respected and a giant step above most of these "big name" researchers who , like Greer, ooze jealousy,.....
.... Stanton who honestly was just passing by and not trying to interupt, after he walked away Greer got in his cheap pot shots on Stanton to our table. But that's okay because after Greer, this so-called "respected figure in ufology" left the table to join another group for a photo, our entire table had our own laughs about Greer and his behaviour.
What a jerk. Shaking Stantons hand and saying "we should talk later", then waiting for the guy to walk off just to talk smack about his facial hair and clothing, comparing it to Stantons own Roswell research and ufo views.
Hopefully Greer will one day realize that talkin smack on people in a field you so wish to be respected in, doesn't do much to help your case......instead try contributing to it for a change.
