Stanton Friedman is by far the best and most meticulous UFO researcher.
Just, um, NO.
He's a 'ufologist' in the respect that he quit nuclear physics because he could get paid more, with more time off, by talking to people about UFOs and doing lectures.
He 'researches' to lecture so he can get paid, and he's not really come up with anything new to his carnival routine in years.
He started out all right, but, now he's just on cruise control, milking the Ufology circus as extended retirement for whatever he can get out of it without going too far into losing what credibility he's built up.

Do you have proof that Friedman left his cushy nuclear physicist job to become a ufologist? To be mocked by every one of his peers and to throw away everything that he built his life to until, as he explains it, he discovered the secret that could change the world. What if he changed career courses because he discovered something so amazing that he felt compelled to devote his life to it?
Also why does it have to be a carnival? Have you ever heard this man speak? He isn't milking anything, he offers lucid and sound knowledge on every aspect of the field in every interview I've ever heard.
My vote is for Friedman in first and Good, Dolan coming up second and third.edit on 19-8-2012 by lordaqua because: (no reason given)
