This is an interesting approach, and I would point out that DNA evidence of an alien-human hybrid already exists. Lloyd Pye's Starchild skull is said to contain both human and non-human DNA. http://www.starchildproject.com/dna.htm Before embarking on a project to find non-human DNA in abductees, perhaps one ought to consider what kind of evidence would be recognized by the scientific community. My impression is that Lloyd Pye is not exactly being overwhelmed by interested molecular biologists, etc. wanting to confirm his geneticist's findings. Further, if he is having problems funding his research, imagine how funding agencies would respond to the kind of research being proposed here. If someone does find old fetal cells containing genes that don't match up with anything in the genetic database, the obvious conservative response would be that these are normal cells that have degraded over time. That would be considered more likely than that they are evidence of alien hybrids. So it's important to have an appropriate control group. That might be a problem if all abductees are not aware that they were abducted. There is an unproven assumption underlying the proposed research that the abduction accounts are all from physical encounters with real aliens. This assumption should be made explicit as part of the hypothesis under test. Otherwise, if the results reveal no evidence of alien DNA, they may be generalized inappropriately to other lines of research based on different assumptions. For example, suppose instead that the experience is a psychic event that is nevertheless as real as real could be. Under this assumption, there would be no expectation of finding alien DNA. If there are hybrids, they would exist in some psychic realm. The important experimental questions would deal with the role of consciousness in forming consensus reality. This may not be too fanciful, considering that alien greys have appeared in Strassman's subjects' DMT experiences and in Hancock's reported experience with the shamanistic trance state. Also, endogenous DMT apparently peaks in the early morning hours, which might possibly coincide with the timing of the majority of abduction experiences. William Listen to 'Strange Days...
