To Franck and the List

Here we go again, this time with Franck Boitte! I wanted to quit
the debate but I cannot let this pass.

Mr Boitte: Marie-Therese was quite wise not to answer you, as
everybody can see on reading you comical post.

Talking about "gurus", I recall that you once told me that
Jacques Vallee was one of the ten greatest men of the 20th
Century !! With worshipers like you, he is the one who deserves
the titles of guru and "priest of high strangeness".

As for Marie-Therese, here is, again her message of support of
Budd Hopkins:, at:


"I have been deeply shocked by Carol Rainey's article and don't
want to review it here in detail; however, what I can say is that I
am an old friend of Budd's (since 1992). I have witnessed his work
and I have been impressed by his behaviour, and I know that he is
very careful when he works with abductees. This is not just a
compliment from a friend: I have had the opportunity to validate
this in many cases. I also say this as someone who has spent seven
years studying at Paris University and who has also spent many
years studying this disturbing phenomenon.

"Budd not only spent hours and hours discussing the subject with
me, but he also allowed me to join him in his support group. He
showed me videos of  his regression sessions and I was able to
see - firsthand -- how he carefully avoided leading questions.
He also allowed me to speak directly with some of his abductees
without being present so they were able to feel comfortable in
their conversations with me.

"Budd is a very dedicated person whose aim is not to make money!
I always saw him giving his time generously without ever asking
for any payment. His goal was, and always has been, to
understand the phenomenon and to try to help people.

"Budd had the courage to open this Pandora's box, and I am among
those who want this important work continue."
