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 Listen to 'Strange Days...
