Carol, You imply here that Budd Hopkins shares completely the views of David Jacobs about a dramatic take-over of the human species. They are good friends, but your statement is plainly false. Budd has departed many times from that publicly. Here are two examples: In the MUFON UFO Journal of July 1998 (No 369, page 10), Dwight Connelly interviewed Budd and asked him what he thought of David Jacobs' latest book The Threat. He replied: "I couldn't have written that book. It's a marvelous book, but it's not in my nature to increase the number of dark clouds over us". Here is another quote, from his bulletin of the Intruders Foundation of October 1997. In his article, entitled Good Aliens? Bad Aliens?, he writes: "The answer is that I've seen no evidence to support the idea that the aliens are "bad" malevolent enemies bent on destruction and conquest". But he adds that he has seen no evidence either hat they are "good". I have read his books and articles, I have met him several times, have listened to several of his conferences, and I have never heard him say that he agreed with the Jacobs scenario. In short you have made again a wrong statement. Budd Hopkins, in his refutation just published, points to many others. Why don't you make a good pause and think about all that?
