I do appreciate the response Steve. First let me apologize for not reading the MIT results you reference. I do not have quick access to a copy. I also need to apologize for not making my main point clearer. I wanted to stress that until we have more, in the way of good evidence from repeatable experiments, rendered good by real peer review, we're just groping in the dark. Until then we're just a majority of muttering men, mainly mulling meaningless and mundane minor minutiae of maybe meddled memories. Not to degrade the true victims of real-life abductions - call it my own denial if you must - but I continue to ask these questions about alien abductions: Is the source of scars, scoop marks, implants and missing time, really ET? Or could these be cases of incidental and forgotten daily traumas? For example, I have scars and scoop marks and implants - dirt and metal - in my own body. But these I attribute to my own boisterous upbringing with brothers and friends - incidental and forgotten daily traumas. I also have memories of dreams of "grey"-like intruders in the night. But how can anyone know these are more than dreams? How can anyone know these are more than confused recollections and everyday mishaps, without repeatable experiments yielding good evidence which has been peer-reviewed? Is that what your referenced book MIT conference results contain - good, peer-reviewed evidence? Or is it only the summaries of presentations made along the lines of what I've already written above?
