Did Aliens From Friendship Island Warn Of The Chile Earthquake?

In January I visited Chile, luckily for me before the earthquakes. While there I was told a story about Friendship Island, a mythical island inhabited by strange beings off the southern coast of Chile (learn more here). Although famous amongst Chilean conspiracy buffs and ufologists, it is seldom discussed outside the region. I would have left it as an amusing piece of local lore, but recently the leading Chilean TV conspiracy theorist, Salfate, went on air in December 2009 claiming that beings from Friendship Island had told him there would be many earthquakes and tsunamis in 2010…

OK, it’s totally nutty stuff, but the natural disasters are hitting as predicted. What does anyone know about Salfate – is he credible or a crank?

      Haha, I know what you mean! But I would like to know more about this guy…

    No idea about this dude, but a place called Friendship Island filled with wild and evidently benevolent creatures sounds like a neat place.

    Hi, reporting from Chile….Salfate sucks….he only relies on what is available in the Web, no serious research at all.

    Also, predicting quakes in Chile is not a great feat…

    If you are interested in Friendship I can lookup for a documentary that was done by a chilean TV station some years ago,

      Thanks, Salfate definitely seems dodgy, just going for ratings.

      If you can post a link to the Friendship Island doc that would be great.

    I saw this guy selling Taco's out of an old photo-mat. He predicted indigestion and he was right!

    Hey Guys, I found on YouTube the original chilean TV documentary that started all the Friendship frenzy.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_q5rq4fzjY

    Sorry, its only in spanish…no subtitles.

    Super hyper summary: some people had contact using VHF radios with supposed aliens living in Friendship. An island located somewhere in the south of Chile.
    There is a man that says he was given the exact location of the island and the beings living there cured him from cancer.

      Thanks – I wish there was something like google translate for audio on youtube. No doubt the boffins at google will launch that soon (they own youtube of course).

    I am from chile, I has been reading disinformation since I saw R.A.W in the Disinformation Conference video, I think….. Salfate is known to be a hardcore fan of comics, manga, movies and anything bizzarre, he is just a regular guy who happens to have a spot on television, like any of us, who likes to search the internet for something more than celebrity gossips or sport results, and he show what he found on national television. the frienship island is a case from the time when dictatorship rule our country, so i dont know what to think, maybe is our “chupacabras”, something to divert our atention away from the “goverment”, I am not a expert in the frienship case, so I can´t say anything more. and about Salfate's credibility, who you believe more? your neighbor or Oprah?

      Thanks Lazaro, I've only watched the Friendship Island and HAARP episodes of Salfate's show, and although he seems like a nice guy I thought most of what he was saying lacked sources and verification, so the “out there” nature of his claims were not supported. If he could change the format to include some back-up research I think he's have more credibility, but probably the show would be far less popular!

      • http://paginanoencontrada.wordpress.com/ Lazaro

        that's hardly going to happen, he got a section on a VERY light and decaffeinated show, so…what salfate say it has to be taken like a comentary not like a proof besides like someone say is not hard to predict an earthquake in Chile, is like predict an earthquake in Japan, it is going to happen one day, specially when we had 25 years of tranquility under our feets.

        best regards.

    HOla vivo en suiza y aunque creci en australia siendo hija de madre chilena, jamas hable en idioma ingles como lo hacen aqui chilenos que solo por el hecho de vivir en el extranjeor se averguenzan de hablar su propio idioma. Yo pienso que antes de discutir si salfate es ono un mentiroso o inventador de bullshit deberian mirarse USTEDES SI TIENEN DE VERDAD LA CAPACIDAD MORAL COMO PARA DECIR ESTO? PORQEU SI RENIEGAN DE SU LENGUA MADRE TAMPOCO SE LES PUEDE ACREDIATR COMO PERSONAS QUE DEFIENDEN LOS DERECHOS DE LA VERDAD EN EL PAIS QUE SEA ..y como se con certeza que muchos aqui de los chilenos que leen no saben ningun otro idioma, seria justo y decente que ustedes lo escribieran en castellano, porque que sentido tiene que ustedes descriminen de alguien y solo lo entiendan gente como ustedes?? Si me hago entender no??

    Es una vergeunza y muy triste que siendo chilenos se atrevan a DESCRIMININAR un hombre como Salfate. SERA ENVIDIA POR CUMULUS DE IGNNORANCIA? o sera que la ADRENALINA YA NO LOS DEJA VIVIR?
    Si el miente, tambien miente el sicologo que trato al Sr. que tenia cancer? porque si ustedes se atreven a poner en EVIDENCIA LA PALABRA DE SALFATE tambien ponen en evidencia LA PALABRA DEL SICOLOGO..que hipnotizo a esta persona que estaba enferma.. A ver piensen un poco antes de hablar, utilicen el cerebro con mas oxigeno y calculen bien lo que dicen..y por favor escriban en castellano para que el pueblo chileno tambien PUEDA DAR SU OPINION…N.

    I’m chilean as well and I did hear and saw the chilean TV show years ago where they did a sort of a news coverage of the issue. I did had myself an experince in Copiapo at my parent’s farm. I’m not going into details; however, I just want to say that had anyone of you guys out there seen what I saw or experienced something similar, your views and thoughts about everything you’ve been taught all your life would definitely come tumbling down. I’m not saying Safate is 100% trustworthy or believable but merely that there are a whole bunch of things from which you all have been kept in complete ignorance for a very long time and it’s about time you start doing your homework. The world is not what it seems.
