Dr. Kokjohn,

First of all, I had no idea who you are when I wrote the initial
comment. To be honest, I've since googled your name and now see
that you're a Professor of Microbiology at the University of
Nebraska with a Ph.D in the field. I'm pleased and amazed that
there are university professors in the technical and scientific
fields willing to comment upon this material and propose new
technical methods for teasing out fact from the current record.

Further, I would argue that these questions of fact will not be
resolved by the taking of additional testimony. What's necessary
to move forward is the use of new technologies and instruments
able to sort fact from opinion and personal interpretation.
Collecting more personal testimony just continues what for so
long hasn't worked. That said, I question your continuing focus
on Dr. Jacobs and Mr. Hopkins. Since you have apparently allied
yourself with an ex-wife of Hopkins and another woman claiming
ethical violations by Jacobs, why would you want their data? Why
prod Jacobs in this way? And, as has been made plain on list,
why bother with Hopkins at all given what some say is a very
serious illness he currently faces?

Perhaps a better question to ask is: Why don't YOU do this? You
have the resources, an academic institution with access to the
requisite equipment, and a clearly falsifiable theory. Instead
of hoping for Jacobs to pursue this research - never mind that
it's not his specialty, whereas it is yours - why don't you put
together a good study, collect and analyze the data, and then
publish it?

Speaking strictly as a layperson making guesses, I could imagine
that perhaps sixty to eighty people split into two groups,
females who claim to have had an abduction experience with an
alien/child hybrid birth vs. females who claim to have never had
an abduction experience, ought to be a big enough sample to rule
out the genetic changes you depict between those two groups. As
for funding, Paypal. Get the community to provide the funding
for a real study. And given your credentials, I bet you could
find plenty of average people willing to do so. I'd certainly
donate money for that project.

That said, I do have one speculative question to consider:
Assuming that the Hopkins-Jacobs-Mack synthesis and analysis is
correct, that biological extraterrestrial aliens are, in fact,
using superior technology to abduct humans in order to pursue
the modification of humanity on Earth, are there _other_
technical procedures than genetic that could be used? I'm
thinking specifically of epigenetic shifts that might result in
morphological changes to an organism - perhaps even changes that
could be passed down subsequent generations - without there
being a detectable genetic change for DNA analysis. Is this
possible? I'm honestly not certain.


Thanks for your kind reply,

-M
