Boyd Bushman was a 78-year-old man who says he was a retired senior research engineer with Lockheed Martin Skunk Works, Texas Instruments, and Hughes Aircraft. In a YouTube video posted earlier this month, Bushman made some startling claims regarding his personal experiences with UFOs, aliens, and anti-gravity technology — and the video has since gone viral, possibly because of the jaw-dropping photo evidence Bushman shared with the camera operator.
Bushman says he had top secret clearance, and the only reason he decided to disclose this explosive information is because he was on his deathbed.
The video is over 30 minutes long, but some of the highlights include the following:
• Aliens that came to Earth were approximately four and a half to five feet tall
• They each have five fingers, which are 30 percent longer than ours, and five webbed toes
• They have three back bones, made up of cartilage
• They came from a planet 68 light-years away called Quintumnia — but they can travel to Earth in under an hour using alien technology
• They can communicate via telepathy
• There is a special flight path to Area 51 from space
• The aliens’ use of anti-gravity is one of several technologies being hidden by the government
• Americans are currently working on UFOs from outer space 24 hours a day
Here is Bushman’s video, which has nearly 3 million views:
So ... yeah, I’m sorry, I’m pretty sure this is either a prank or the poor man was delusional. Maybe Bushman really did work for Lockheed Martin, but the whole deathbed confession thing feels pretty unconvincing for a variety of reasons. As this site points out,
A deathbed confession can also be a way to solidify one’s reputation by using the cultural belief in its veracity to double-down on the claim to increase general belief in it. The thinking could easily be, “People really believe that people are 100% honest on their deathbed, so I’m going to make sure I go out with a ‘bang’ and make my claims yet again. People who didn’t believe me before might this time because they’ll think I’m telling the truth ’cause I’m about to die.”
This was reportedly purchased from K-Mart around Halloween in 1997. It bears a VERY strong resemblance to the alien in the photos Mr. Bushman shows in the video, so you tell me: are the aliens real and someone in merchandising decided to build a plastic figurine matching the looks of an extraterrestrial that’s been kept secret by the government for the last few decades?
Or is this closer to the overall reaction you’re having to Bushman’s claims?
