There's an Australian abduction case --maybe someone, Chris R., can supply a
citation -- in which a woman, I believe, claimed to be being abducted while,
at the time, she was actually sitting in a car seat next to one of the
investigators. Seems unlikely ET was invovled in that one!

The problem, of course, is that the majority of abductions tend to be
one-witness events. Don't flame me with examples of multiple abductions, I
said the _majority_.

What puzzles me about abductions is that, frequently, the classic UFO isn't
even involved, at least not in the way it is in the Hill case. In that
event, the UFO is first seen as a distant light which then comes closer
until the UFO grows large, confronts the car, aliens emerge, and the
abduction ensues. In flow chart terms, there is a straight, unbroken line
from UFO sighting, to capture, examination and, ultimately, release. In
other words, if so inclined, one could chart the experience as a straight
line moving from left (Sighting) to right (Release) with other discrete
events (Capture, Examination, Tour, etc {Bullard's eight stages]) at other
points along the line.

Many "modern" or post-Hill abductions, however, fall into the so-called
"bedroom visitor" category in which they awake in bed, find themselves
confronting aliens, and then are taken into what apears to be the inside of
flying saucer, examined and released, or put back in bed.

In a very real sense, we never "know" where the "UFO" is in such cases is.
Is it hovering just over the house or 5000 feet up? Is it invisible to all
outside observers?

It won't come as a great revelation here, but there is an awful lot about
abductions that don't make sense. For example, if alien technology is so
advanced (the ability to hover invisibly, beam people through solid objects,
etc.), why are the aliens' medical procedures so little advanced by
comparison? Why have to abduct so many people (if the numbers claimed have
any validity) to obtain sperm and ova samples? Seems to me if you could beam
an entire body up, you could simply beam up the sperm without anyone being
the wiser. Fact is, we seem further along the artificial insemination and
gene manipulation areas of technology than the aliens allegedly are. It's
rather as if we were to land men on Mars while still trying to send signals
back to Earth by reflecting sunlight off mirrors.

Don't make no sense, I say.
