In the modern era, there are literally thousands of people who claim to have been abducted by UFOs. They replaced the "contactees" of previous years, who were usually happy to talk to their alien friends. It was from the late 1960s onward that UFOs began to take on a more sinister air. Though they would have you believe otherwise, it is easy to pinpoint the beginning of the abductee craze: Betty Hill. She and her husband were driving down a long, dark road and were "abducted". They described small, gray aliens with heads shaped like light bulbs, the now common staple of pop culture. Later, it was learned that Betty Hill had aprevious interest in UFOs and that the whole thing was a product of her overactive imagination.

Yet as soon as word of her "spacenapping" by "the grays" got out, they became a common theme in American UFO stories. I say American because of an interesting division: In America, the aliens that abduct people are usually the small, evil gray folks. In Europe and elsewhere, they are almost universally reported as tall, blond and benign. Evidence of two alien races vying for our attention or subtle indicator of cultural bias of made-up stories? If you guessed #1, you guessed wrong. I would love nothing more than to describe in detail the hundreds of cases I've read about and debunk them one by one as the products of hoaxes,practical jokes, hallucinations or cries for attention; however, it may be better to speak of them generally. Let me be absolutely clear about this: UFOs exist. They exist as strange atmospheric phenomena, classified aircraft, weather balloons or rare weather patters. A person who sees a UFO is probably telling the truth, and the event might have occurred. A person who claims to have been abducted by aliens is lying, hallucinating, or on the receiving end of a bad joke. There are no other options.Generally, it starts like this: When alone somewhere, be it driving down a dark and lonely road or sleeping alone in a backwoods home, the abductee senses something is wrong. This is called the Oz Factor. Animals act irregularly, senses are dulled orsharpened,. ...

Alien abduction claims explained

Many of the people who believe they have been abducted by aliens are bombarding Susan Clancy with hate e-mails and phone calls. The Harvard researcher, who has spent five years listening to the stories of some 50 abductees, has described her (and their) experiences in a new book to be published in October. Clancy, 36, likes most of these people. "They are definitely not crazy," she says. But they do have "a tendency to fantasize and to hold unusual beliefs and ideas. They believe ...

Abductee Betty Hill Dies, Aged 85

Betty Hill of Portsmouth, who along with her late husband in 1961, had the first publicized and best-documented UFO experience in the White Mountains, died Sunday in her sleep after a battle with lung cancer. She was 85. On a return trip from Canada, the Hills said they were abducted for two hours by a UFO on Sept. 19, 1961. After going public with their story, the two gained worldwide notoriety.

Close Encounter Cluture

The strange history of "alien abduction" began in 1966 with publication of John G Fuller's The Interrupted Journey, about the 1961 encounter in New Hampshire of Betty and Barney Hill. The couple said they had been taken aboard a spacecraft and subjected to detailed anatomical examinations by alien beings. The book was a best-seller, not least because a highly esteemed Boston psychiatrist used the then new technique of regressive hypnosis to uncover the Hills' buried me...

Alien abduction real even if imagined

There are some people in the world who believe without the need for provable facts, and hold to the idea that aliens kidnap people from time to time, maybe though not necessarily counting themselves among those who have gone into space when they thought they were going to bed or for a walk in the woods. The belief in, and experience of, alien abduction is not too far removed at all from spiritual ideas and experiences of all kinds. It is essentially benign.When you consider that there are some t...

Kalmykia leader recalls alien abduction

Life is not all plain sailing for Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the flamboyant leader of the Russian republic of Kalmykia. For a start, his Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit II needs constant repairs thanks to the rutted roads of his impoverished fiefdom. And then there is the danger of alien abduction. He has already been pressganged into one trip on a UFO - seven years ago when he was on a business trip to Moscow. "They took me from my apartment and we went aboard their ship," he says, sitting in hiso...

Near-death experiences and UFO kidnappings

Those familiar with the near-death phenomenon, particularly the tunnel with a bright light at the end of it and a usually benign figure who comforts the dying person, might find commonality with the UFO abductee tales and other flying saucer encounters over the years. The near-death experience is mystical, and can be dealt with along theological lines, or with the help of William James’ The Varieties of Religious Experiences and more recent tomes such as Raymond Moody’s Life After Life….There ar...

Abductee shares proof that we are not alone

Craig Jacocks’ Aware of Their Presence is set to be the first major book about alien abduction since Whitley Streiber’s best seller Communion. But, Jacocks has something even Streiber did not: proof. In the book, Jacocks recounts details from the many times he was abducted by aliens, beginning when he was a young child. He details how the encounters grew in intensity and how he began to realize he was dealing with humanoid beings withamazing abilities. Gradually, he began to hear their voices an...

The abduction quandary

RRRGroup: We won’t rehash the abduction phenomenon except to say that the “experience” hasn’t been researched as thoroughly as it should be. For instance, one has to ask why an alien culture (intergalactic, inter-dimensional, subliminally Earthian, or whatever) would resort to interacting with persons who are in a normal state of being (sleeping, in their cars, and otherwise occupied with mundane activity) when there are so many available humans in precarious situations, alone in remote areas, a...
