Mr. Gelinas -

Thank you so much for this well-researched and magnificently
thought provoking response. I hope it stimulates a productive


Like you, I note that many underlying explanatory rationales for
alien abductions seem intrinsically weak and readily undermined.
But even sound, documented arguments do not automatically carry
the day. One problem is that skeptics are in a bad position
(logically) because it can be so challenging to prove a negative
assertion in a simple, rigorous sense. Although you may
demonstrate they are unlikely, lacking hard evidence it can be
virtually impossible to completely falsify some hypotheses.

Scientific intuition tells me the claims of Dr. David Jacobs and
Mr. Budd Hopkins in particular have grown far beyond anything
the existing objective evidence supports. However, that remains
nothing more than my personal opinion and the debate could
continue forever. But, there may be a way out of this dilemma.

A particular class of abductee, those allegedly impregnated or
used as incubators for human-alien hybrid entities, offers a
potentially rich source of hard genetic evidence.

During pregnancy, DNA and cells from the unborn child become
incorporated into the mother. Remarkably, the fetal cells may
persist in the mother for decades after the pregnancy ends
(Science 296:2169-2172, 21 June 2002).

In principle, if the hypotheses are correct, some female
abductees must harbor physical evidence of alien hybrids.
Because these cells are long-lived, investigators can simply re-
contact some past research subjects to begin experiments (after
the required IRB approvals are obtained). No one need capture an
entity or await other happenstance to uncover some hard

If the hypotheses of Dr. Jacobs and Mr. Hopkins are correct,
telltale genetic evidence should be recoverable. Perhaps they or
a new generation of abduction researchers will now take on this
challenge and reveal some facts surrounding the alien abduction

Again, many thanks for your thoughts and efforts. You taught
this professor something and I am grateful for it.

Best wishes,

Tyler Kokjohn
