The UFO Dictionary Project

THE UFO DICTIONARY PROJECT is an effort that I conceived of and founded when I was in high school. It was then launched with the full support of Stanton Friedman and William L. Moore, its digital contents and the first functioning version of my UFOComp software and filing system were stored on ‘old school‘ eight-inch wide floppy disks and then state-of-the-art Dictaphone Artec word processors using metal printwheel fonts. Later, this was ported to HyperCard.

Since it was Stanton Friedman who first taught me the very definition of the word UFOlogy versus its opposite counterpart, UFOOLogy, I grew dismayed over time when basic but important terms were illogically and carelessly being mixed together by many researchers, including Friedman himself, despite some of their motives being sincere.

Obviously, not only was standardization of correct terminology vital, ruthless enforcement of its use was also a critically important part of this. 

Put another way, words either mean what they do, or they mean nothing at all.


Today, The UFO Dictionary project is part of the UFOlogy UFOOLogy online web site at and is a module in the UFOComp computing platform.


Here are some key terms and their definitions as they are used in this series.

Aviary: An imaginary group of government and/or powerfully connected people who keep custody of the USA’s “Cosmic Watergate UFO secrets.” The Aviary was literally made up by Jamie Shandera and original Roswell Incident book co-author William L. Moore, who gave some of their sources code names after birds, such as “Falcon” and “Condor.” They used the novel The Falcon and the Snowman as their inspiration. While this little known information is public knowledge, UFO Beliebers still today cling onto the mythology of the Aviary, MJ-12 documents, and the religion of “Disclosure,” ad nauseam. Disclosure types are very ‘special’ people. It takes ‘special talent’ to believe in something as if it was real, when it was obviously not only made up, literally, we even know the names of those who did it!

Beliebers: To UFO Beliebers, facts never matter. “It’s all good, even if it’s a hoax, there’s still gotta be aliens!” This term was named in honor of Justin Bieber fans, who never object to anything Justin Bieber does, even when he urinates in public. UFO Beliebers believe in “special” things, CONspiracies and events that are not true and have never happened.

Bigly: When something happens in a big way.


Binary Case: A binary UFO case is one that is provable one way or another, for it contains either definitive evidence for alien visitations or it does not. Binary UFO cases are vital to study because their very nature means they can be solved, i.e., it’s aliens or not.

CONdidate: A candidate for anything, which pushes something that is knowingly or provably false.


CONnection: A ‘connection’ that is not true, is false, or is a “con” or is contrived.


CONspiracy: A “conspiracy” where none exists, it is made up and it is a lie.


CONvenient: When it is not truly convenient, when someone uses an excuse to lamely “justify” their refusal to face issues and they know they are in avoidance or are deceiving people.


Cosmic Watergate: A term coined by Stanton Friedman to describe the U.S. Government’s all-seeing, all-knowing, all-wise cover-up concerning the subject of UFOs, flying saucer wreckage and alien bodies from Corona, New Mexico. Stanton Friedman claimed that not one, but two flying saucers crashed in New Mexico in the summer of 1947! The term Cosmic Watergate is misleading and deceptive, it is also a non-sequitur since Watergate was a political problem, it was not a national security issue. If aliens are visiting Earth, abducting human beings as claimed, this is automagically a national security issue, politics are secondary.

Cosmic Watermelon: A term coined by famed UFO researcher Robert Todd, who first discovered the connection between Project Mogul and Roswell. It is used to describe Stanton Friedman’s and other people’s attempts to ‘prove’ or provide ‘hard evidence’ for their claimed Cosmic Watergate CONspiracy, statements which have been exposed as misleading or false.

Debunk/Debunkers: One fast and accurate way to test whether any person talking to you about UFOs even knows basic facts about this subject, is to just ask them what the word Debunker means. If they are a Friedmanite, they will falsely claim that “Debunkers have closed minds.” “Don’t confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.”


This deliberate and arguably delusional twisting of the real meaning of the word Debunker by Stanton Friedman is wrong. In the real world, try looking up the definition of what Debunker really means. Debunking simply separates “bunk” or bullshit, from facts. 


Debunking separates truth versus fiction, reality versus fantasy. Look it up!


One would think that separating truth from nonsense would be a ‘good thing’ in studying UFO reports, right? Not according to Friedmanites.


The hypocrisy of Friedmanites is palpable when one thinks critically about their schtick.


Don’t be fooled. To be blunt, this problem issue of twisting words is their problem.


Disclosure: An imaginary ‘movement’ (and to some a literal religion) which holds that the U.S. Government is on the verge of “disclosing” the “real truth” about UFOs. Naturally, to Disclosure types, this means admitting they are not from Earth.


Ever since UFO researcher Jamie Shandera and Bill Moore made up the imaginary Aviary, UFO nut jobs, extremists and Beliebers have literally conned MILLIONS of dollars out of the public by further building on this, and deceiving them. 


This enormous consumer fraud, now a profitable industry for some pundits and entities, continues almost entirely unchecked today and has never been more rampant, with Big Media now involved and wholly culpable in helping promote false information about UFOs and the “paranormal” in general.

FAKEship: A “spaceship” which is fake or cannot be real. Named in honor of Swiss UFO Sex Cult leader and con artist Eduard “Billy” Meier and his “Spaceships” of the Pleiades.


Friedmanite: A person who espouses the approach and views on UFOs and to UFO research in general that Nuclear Physicist and famed researcher Stanton T. Friedman did, in whose honor this term is coined. Anyone who believes in the same UFO related cases that Stan Friedman did.


Infiniginormous: Infinitely ‘ginormous’ as in infinitely beyond gigantic.


Korffer: Someone who is a “fan” or supporter of Kal Korff. CONspiracy nutters, extremists and online haters have made a point to twist this word by falsely claiming they either ‘invented’ it, or that it means someone who attacks, cyber stalks or ‘exposes’ Kal Korff. In reality, the term “Korffer” was first used at John F. Kennedy High School in Fremont, California in 1976 to describe supporters of Kal Korff and his research.


Kritics: This term applies to ‘critics’ whose arguments or attacks have no validity, no credibility. 


Lamestream Media: When the media is “lame” in their coverage and commentary on a subject, which unfortunately occurs too often nowadays.


Nutters: Anyone who is “nuts” or is arguably crazy.

Pleiadian Beamship: One of several different types of FAKEships hoax UFO photos and models created by Swiss UFO Sex Cult leader Eduard “Billy” Meier using dinner plates and upside down cereal bowls. All of Meier’s key, major FAKEship UFO imagery and motion picture films have been duplicated by Phil Langdon and Kal Korff.


Shituation: Between a rock and a hard place, screwed either way no matter what you do.


UAO: Acronym – Unidentified Aerial Object. Any airborne object which is unidentified. Note: This term is often used today as a popular substitute for the classic term UFO, or Unidentified Flying Object.


UAP: Acronym – Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon. Any ‘phenomenon’ which takes place in the air above ground level that is unidentified. Note: This term is often used today as a popular substitute for the classic term UFO, or Unidentified Flying Object.


UFO: Acronym – Unidentified Flying Object. Any object which flies and is unidentified. Note: Sometimes UFO researchers, the general public and media will mix up and use the terms “UFO” and “flying saucer” as if they are automagically the same thing or are interchangeable. One should avoid doing this. UFOs are simply unidentified flying objects, period. Their shape is not relevant to the definition of this acronym. “Flying saucers” are but one type of UFO that has been reported, but not all UFOs are flying saucers. In fact at least 80 percent of all reported incidents describe lights in the night sky whose true shape are not possible to determine.


UFOComp: Software designed and developed by Kal Korff for UFOlogy, not UFOOLogy. To reserve and/or download your free copy, email:

UFODom/UFOdom: A generic word for the UFO field.


UFODumb: When the UFO field does something “dumb” or stupid, like refusing to use the word ‘Debunker’ correctly, which is too often the case.


UFOlitics: A term coined by famed TV Producer Robert Kiviat, definition by Kal Korff. UFOlitics refers to the ‘politics’ of the subject of UFOs. UFOlitics includes everything from having the government not treat this subject seriously, to even using it as a cover story or misinformation for various activities. UFOlitics also includes private contractors trying to fleece the U.S. Government and other entities to study UFOs and any CONnections to paranormal. UFOlitics also refers to when UFO researchers promote info that pushes desired agendas, fact-based or not. UFOlitics involves manipulating the media, political representatives to help shape public opinion and policies.


UFOlogist: Anyone who practices UFOlogy and not UFOOLogy.


UFOlogy: The scientific study of UFO data.

UFOOLogist: Anyone who practices UFOOlogy and not UFOlogy.


UFOOLogy: When a person makes conclusions or statements about UFOs which are not derivable from credible data.


Zeta Ridiculous: A spoof name for Zeta Reticuli, the mythical “home base” stars of the “aliens” who supposedly traveled to Earth and “abducted” Betty and Barney Hill. 

This term was created to accurately describe UFO Beliebers and promoters of the Hill case, since they are either ignorant of or deliberately ignore the Hipparcos star mapping satellite data which completely destroys any perceived credibility in the purported alien star map that Betty Hill drew while she was under hypnosis.
