Hi Maynard

I haven't said the whole scene doesn't throw up a lot of
questions like the lack of physical evidence.

Some would cite so called implants as evidence - certainly the
individual stories recounted by so many constitute evidence of

I don't know whether the abduction experience is physical or not
- we've all heard stories of abductees returning with muddy
boots or odd stains on clothing etc.

Whether these are valid or not I have no idea and like you I
will "remain sceptical of abduction researchers' claims"

I am simply saying that it is wise to continue to listen to
people who say these things have happened to them and compile as
much information as possible for present and future analysis.

Personally I suspect we are dealing with an experience which
transcends time and space and as such you probably wouldn't be
able to provide physical evidence.

If many of our physicists are talking of parallel universes, why
is it not possible that these might bleed through into ours
occasionally?  Or we to these other realms?

So there may be reasons for lack of physical evidence - but no
reason to ignore the claimed abductees because they don't return
with an ET or Ultra-Terrrestrial ashtray.
