Subject: Re: Abductions & Ufology

I guess I better step into this mine field because I mostly, but
not completely, agree with Jan Aldrich regarding the Abduction

Like Jan, I don't exactly know what to do with the abduction
scenarios within Ufology either, but it appears to be a part of
Ufology. However, like Jan, I don't think it is the centerpiece
of Ufology as it is being presented today. Of course I
completely reject crop circles as being part of Ufology too.

I do pay attention to this facet of Ufology, but have just as
many problems with it as other areas. There are several cases
that trouble me, athough I certainly believe the sincerity
expressed by a few abductees, but that doesn't count for much as
far as empirical evidence is concerned. The cases that make me
take notice and a closer look are not the abductions from the
bedroom, but those that occur when a person(s) observe a UFO at
close quarters while still conscious and active, then abducted
and taken into the UFO.

Like Jan, my mind is open, but so far I have to agree with him.
Very little of the current abduction scenario seem to fit the
framework of Ufology. Some cases certainly, but not as many as
the statistics being forwarded really suggest.

Not really a defense of Jan's position, but for what it's worth,
I know Jan personally. We've spend a lot of time together in
research and socializing. He's a pretty pragmatic guy. Honest to
a fault and even though we've had some pretty hot discussions as
to our own outlooks on Ufology over the years, he's one of the
good guys in Ufology who wears a white hat and challenges all of
us to think and rethink.

Hang in there, Jan. You're not alone.
