Hola Young Bob,

When the truth of the existence of the UFOs and their occupants
(finally) becomes common knowledge, some people are going to
suffer over it more than others. I guess giving the other guy the
benefit of the doubt (keeping an open mind) is passe and something
that went out with the horse and buggy.

(If) this is all a cultural or psychological phenomena then you
should all be quaking in your boots. If it can 'infect' the
number of perfectly sane people that it has, then what makes you
so smug to think you are somehow immune from 'catching it'
yourself? Any way you look at it, you cut your own throat each
and every time you dismiss these thousands of _honest_ reports
as mere psycho-fluff with no possibility of having any basis in

If it is psycho-fluff... then please tell me why the mental
health community has not acknowledged and addressed a phenomenon
that is clearly manifest among a _significant_ number of people?
World wide! They usually clamor to embrace anything they can
throw Prozac or some other mood or mind altering chemical at,
not to mention an opportunity to 'bill' for years of therapy.
They continue to invent new 'disorders' daily but they have
somehow not chosen to address one that is 'in their faces.'

All these folks, from all over the world Bob, _all_ reporting
the _same_ details - symptoms to you Bob :) Yet the mental
health community has _completely_ ignored it. Ya think that
maybe they already know that these people - abductees - are
_not_ suffering from any major 'mental health' issues? With
exceptions I'm sure. And that _that_ knowledge is the reason
why it has not been addressed by them as a body?

When the reality of UFOs and their occupants becomes common
knowledge... worlds will explode.

The shattering of world views will have the most devastating
effect among those who cling to their beliefs as if they were
carved in Krell metal. When the time comes, and it _will_ come,
they will need comforting and understanding beyond measure.
Imagine for just a moment what a humbling and truly educational
experience it would be to receive comfort, understanding and
help from the very people you have been routinely dismissing and
insulting -without second thought- for so many years.

Be more open-minded Bob. Not gullable mind you, just more open
minded. Willing to keep certain questions open until _all_ the
evidence is in. It wouldn't hurt, and hey, you may _really_ need
us some day.  :)
