I know this is going to sound completely 'out there' but
consider this:

Just suppose for a moment that what has always been perceived as
aliens from a distant World are in fact _us_ from a distant

It has always bugged me that alien creatures from another World
would have the slightest interest in our DNA, what are the odds
that they'd be compatible.

Look at the news over the past couple of years regarding cloning.
All of a sudden our little gene pool has started to become less
than pure.

As time rolls on it's going to get less and less. We had Dolly
the sheep, now they're talking about the Worlds first cloned

I remember seeing a documentary that put forward the suggestion
that we might in the future design (through genetic
manipulation) a human who would be perfectly adapted for long
term space travel. Imagine the shock when they showed a computer
simulation of what such a creature would look like.

If I am right then it's early day's yet, but from a future
historians point of view, the year 2000 would seem a logical cut
off point. It's from here on in where we started to screw it up.
Hence the drop in abductions.

Yes I know it sounds crazy but no more crazy than the space
aliens theory.

If you need to contact me I'll be at the funny farm.

All the very best,

Dave Bowden
