Hi, Emma, Gildas, and List, I agree that polygraph examinations are notoriously unreliable, and do not determine truth from lies, but rather measure stress factors which can be either reduced or eliminated by the use of certain breathing, psychological, and drug-related techniques. If Robert Hanssen and Aldrich Ames, two of the most damaging US double agents of this generation, could repeatedly pass US intelligence-administered polygraph examinations, for many years, what does that tell you about both the reliability or accuracy of polygraphs to determine the truth? That they are quite unreliable most often and not based on scientific, objective means to determine actual veracity. That's why they are not allowed in court trials, either civil or criminal. For further significant data about these facts, see the following: http://www.antipolygraph.org/ Oh, and Emma? Regarding Jerry Clark's most recent jerimiad about you? I think he ought to take some of his own advice to you, regarding getting help from a therapist, as he continues to demur and dismiss the essential issue at hand, due to his friendship with Hopkins (and, "one infers," by extension, Jacobs), which is that as long as you are unable to achieve closure on all the issues you have legitimately raised (and, so far, there is no sign that either Jacobs or Hopkins plan to discontinue their very unprofessional, uncertified, non-peer- reviewed use of regressive hypnosi [RH] on their subjects, and thus will continue to cause the confabulation and implan- tation of false memories in their quite misguided efforts to "recover" supposed "suppressed memories" of alien abduc- tion), I think you are correct to comment on and press this issue for as long as it may take until or unless Jacobs, Temple University, and Hopkins and the "board of directors" at the Intruders Foundation agree to discontinue this egregrious and abusive practice of RH, which if anything, as your case and many others have shown (and which current and past scientific and psychological peer- reviewed studies have long proved), do not, in fact, recover suppressed memories at all, but instead create the environment and are, most often, the source of false memories being both confabulated and implanted due to the expectations of the primed subject and the related confirmation biases and leading interrogatory practices of the likes of Jacobs and Hopkins, among many others like Mack and Sprinkle, et al. Even Mack observed, without questioning it deeply, why different "abductionologists" employing RH seemed to get rather different patterns and types of "recovered memories" from each group of human subjects "treated" by differing abduction researchers. That would not be the case if the "alien abduction" phenomenon were actually genuine in an external, physical manner. It is more a reflection of the varying confirmation biases of the each of the researchers and investigators involved in using RH as an investigatory "tool." Maybe Jerry, and Mr. Steinberg, will someday realize that, and why you continue to voice your concerns and call for redress and a hearing of the issues, as the use of RH for said alleged recovery of memories, repressed or otherwise, or for the purpose of supposedly recovering memories of either "past lives," or "satanic ritual abuse" (a uniquely American form of "moral panic" and cultural hysteria that occurred in the 1980's/90's, and when investigated, including rather thoroughly by the FBI, it was determined such hysteria had little to no basis in reality), by those amateurs and non-pro- fessional advocates who use RH for these misguided purposes, should be ended. I support your efforts, and agree with your contentions as to how RH is a damaging, destructive practice, and if continued without accountability, will result in an even greater level of malfeasance and consequent damage to the psyches and lives of the victims of this absurd form of human subject manipulation based on distorted and iatrogenic practices. There are many very good reasons why, as BUFORA did several years ago, the use of RH in the investigation of "alien abduction" cases should be banned, and it is high time American practitioners of this reprehensible process did likewise. If not, civil and criminal legal remedies, and maybe even legislative solutions need to be explored and brought to bear on these ongoing, abusive "treatment" procedures, IMHO. Best of luck to you. Don't give up the fight for redress, and the banning of RH for these misbegotten purposes, and either ignore or confront the nay-sayers and debunkers as needed in the amazingly calm, direct ways you have so far dealt with this controversial and scandalous imbroglio.
