Alien Abductions

Millions of men and women are being abducted by extraterrestrials and forced to endure medical examinations aboard spaceships in order to determine their eligibility for alien-human crossbreeding experiments. Preparatory to a global invasion of Earth, aliens are creating hybrids to serve as a fifth column within the human population.

Estimates presented at a conference held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in June 1982 suggested that from several hundred thousand to more than 3 million adults in the United States alone have had abduction experiences with UFO entities.

David Webb, an Arlington, Massachusetts, solar physicist and cochairman of the Mutual UFO Network, has stated that space aliens have abducted one out of every eight people who have reported seeing UFOs. In many cases, Webb said, the victims undergo some kind of examination, but they usually remember nothing of the on-board experience.

The case of Betty and Barney Hill, a couple then in their forties, has become the archetypal example of humans abducted, examined, and probed by aliens from another world. On September 19, 1961, Betty, a social worker, supervisor of the New Hampshire Welfare Department, and Barney, a mail carrier who was on the governor of New Hampshire’s Civil Rights Commission, were returning to their home in New Hampshire from a short Canadian vacation when they noticed a bright object in the night sky and stopped to investigate with a pair of binoculars. Barney perceived what appeared to be windows—and strange beings looking back at him. The Hills got back in their car and began to race down the road. Suddenly unable to control their movements, they were taken from the car and, in a trancelike condition, led to the UFO by humanoids.

The Hills recalled the sensational details of their story only under hypnosis, for the couple had a complete loss of memory concerning the nearly two hours during which they were the chosen guests of the UFOnauts. When the Hills began weekly hypnosis sessions with Benjamin Simon, a Boston psychiatrist, an astonishing pastiche of bizarre physical and mental examinations was revealed. Both told of being examined by aliens in much the same manner as human scientists might treat laboratory animals. Although they had been given hypnotic suggestions that they would forget their experience, their induced amnesia had apparently ruptured in rehypnosis.

Under hypnosis in 1964 Betty, with little or no understanding of astronomy, drew her impressions of a star map that she had seen aboard the alien spaceship. The map was interpreted by Marjorie Fish, an amateur astronomer, member of Mensa, and Ohio schoolteacher. Betty’s map showed the location of two stars called Zeta 1 and Zeta 2 Reticuli, allegedly the home base of the space travelers, as well as several other stars in the same part of the sky. Interestingly, the existence of two of the stars on the map was not confirmed by astronomers until 1969 in the Gliese Catalogue of Nearby Stars, the standard reference work.

During the night of January 6, 1976, three Liberty, Kentucky, women were abducted by aliens and kept for more than an hour. When they regained consciousness, Louise Smith complained that her neck hurt. When Mona Stafford examined it, she saw a strange red mark like a burn that had not blistered, about three inches long and an inch wide. Elaine Thomas’s neck had the same type of mark on it.

Although the peculiar burn marks disappeared in about two days, the three women still could not account for the missing time—nor could they recall more about that night than having seen a UFO overhead and Louise Smith screaming that she could not control her rapidly accelerating automobile.

Later, under hypnosis sessions conducted by Dr. R. Leo Sprinkle, Elaine Thomas remembered that she had been placed on her back in a long, narrow chamber. There were small, dark figures perhaps four feet tall standing near her. One of them placed a blunt instrument against her chest that caused her a great deal of pain.

Louise Smith recalled the frightening appearance of the humanoids and the bizarre environment in which she found herself.

Mona Stafford remembered lying on a table in what seemed to be some kind of operating room. At one point she felt as if her eyes were being pulled out of her skull. At another time, her stomach was blown up like a balloon. She also reported that a number of aliens pulled at her feet, then bent them backward and twisted.

There are numerous accounts in circulation of human-alien sexual interaction during abduction experiences. One of the earliest such reports came from Brazil and was originally published in the magazine O Cruzeiro. Dr. Olvao Fontes, one of the original investigators of the incident, stated that the abductee, Antonio Villas Boas, was a twenty-three-year-old farmer near the town of Francisco de Sales in the state of Minas Gerais. On the night of October 15, 1957, Antonio was plowing alone when an egg-shaped aerial vehicle hovered over his tractor. A few minutes later the object landed, and four occupants dressed in tight-fitting coveralls made of a thick, but soft, gray cloth emerged from it. One of the beings grabbed Antonio’s arms, but he managed to wrench himself free. (The young, well-muscled farmer said later that his abductors were about his height—five feet four—and strength.) He had not gone far, however, when three other beings got hold of his arms and legs and lifted him off the ground.

Inside the vehicle the aliens brought Antonio to a brightly lighted room. He later said that their speech sounded to him like a series of doglike barks. The young farmer was stripped naked and thoroughly examined. When the beings had finished their examination, he was left alone to rest on a couch. He had not lain there long before he became aware that gray smoke with a disagreeable, suffocating odor had entered the room. Antonio was forced to relieve his nausea by vomiting in a corner.

After a few more minutes, the door to the room opened and a well-proportioned and totally naked woman walked in to join Antonio on the couch. The alien seductress had large blue eyes that seemed to slant outward, a straight nose, high cheekbones, a nearly lip-less mouth, and a sharply pointed chin. In spite of the stressful physical examination that he had just endured, Antonio found himself responding to the her frank sexual advances. Later he told investigators that the beings must have somehow dosed him with an aphrodisiac.

After the sexual act had been consummated, Antonio’s clothing was returned, and an alien male indicated that he should get dressed. It was clear that his abductors were finished with him. The next day Antonio became ill. His eyes began to burn and a series of sores broke out on his arms and legs. In the center of each of the sores was a little lump that was very itchy. Two weeks later his face became speckled with yellowish spots.

Ever since the 1960s, alien abductions have been reported with alarming frequency. Many researchers maintain that the kidnappings and physical examinations are part of an alien program of interbreeding. In numerous instances, such as in the case of Antonio Boas, the aliens bring one of their women, whose egg is ready to be fertilized, to an earthman for insemination.

Some investigators argue that for pregnancy to occur during a sexual act, the male and female must be of the same species. Others counter that alien superscience might have evolved some remarkable method of DNA manipulation or cloning. Either thought is unsettling.

Many researchers say that if we were to read the creation story in Genesis from the historical perspective of our current awareness of genetic engineering, the interaction between the “sons of God” and the fair daughters of men assumes a rather different interpretation: “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men were fair; so they took them wives of all whom they chose. There were giants on the earth in those days; and also after that, for the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them, and they became giants who in the olden days were men of renown” (Gen. 6:1–4).

If the fallen angels of Genesis were actually extraterrestrials conducting experiments on female members of the developing strain of primitive humans, then rather than decadent heavenly beings sinning with Earth’s daughters, they were scientists carrying out a directive to provide early humankind with a genetic boost.

In the apocryphal book of Enoch (7:12), we learn more of the nonterrestrial entities who desire the daughters of men for their own interests: “It happened after the sons of men had multiplied in those days, that elegant, beautiful daughters were born to them. And when the angels, the sons of heaven, beheld them, they became enamored of them, saying to each other: Come, let us select for ourselves wives from the progeny of men, and let us beget children.”

Abductees speaking at the Mutual UFO Network’s Washington, D.C., conference in June 1987 reported frightening and disorienting aspects of their experiences. They told of the frustration of being partially paralyzed and taken without their consent to undergo medical examinations. They said that they often remembered the events only in fragments and flashes until they underwent hypnotic regression.

Whitley Strieber admitted that when he first realized he had been abducted, he was suicidal. Then he began to investigate some UFO literature and discovered that others had endured similar experiences. He sought out the services of a hypnotist, thinking that perhaps that would alleviate his ordeal, and he wrote the book Communion hoping that the memories and the feelings would go away.

Strieber said that he had received thousands of letters from other abductees—people who do not welcome publicity, including entertainers, political leaders, and members of the armed forces in high positions. All of these abductees reported a basic progression of emotions, moving from uneasy, fragmented recollections to a clear memory accompanied by fear.

R. Leo Sprinkle, formerly on staff at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, has speculated that hundreds of thousands of people may have undergone a UFO abduction experience but were not aware of it at the time. Sprinkle lists several characteristics common among people who have had such experiences:

  1. An episode of missing time. They know that “something” happened between two points of consciousness, but they can’t fill in the missing time.
  2. Disturbing dreams about flying saucers, about being pursued and captured, then examined by doctors in white coats.
  3. Daytime flashbacks of UFO experiences. While going about their normal daytime activities, abductees will flash back to some kind of UFO image or UFO entity.
  4. Strange compulsions, such as a strong wish to travel to a certain location or to complete a certain task.
  5. A sudden interest in UFOs. The abductee may suddenly want to read about UFOS, ancient history, or pyramids and crystals, without knowing why.
