I think the science shows fairly clearly that hypnosis is subject to serious problems, and is often not reliable.

I think part of the problem here is that neither Jacobs, nor Hopkins, were trained psychiatrists, so I'm not sure that even comes into play here. Perhaps some questions that should be asked are coming to the surface, but does that justify throwing out the body of research they've generated? <snip> >I've had some people come to me over the years with their >experiences, each person having more to lose than gain from the >telling of their stories. None of them were regressed. I know that you aren't saying this Don, but It's a mistake to believe that the entire field of abduction research rests on hypnotic regression. There are several multiple abduction cases, including one Australian case involving multiple individuals in multiple cars along a highway. Marks on the bodies of alleged abductees, not to mention marks on the ground left by something that allegedly landed there, remain part of this mystery. Listen to 'Strange Days...
