You've said your piece, and it's >time to move on. Hi, Gene and Listers, "Really, you need to get a life. You've said your piece, and it's time to move on." Jeez, I dunno Gene. Maybe you and Jerry should get together and start a new religion. Perhaps join a club. Or something. Just an idle thought, of course. Or so one might infer. 8^} Get a life? Time to move on? How arrogant and dismissive. You'd like that, wouldn't you? I think Emma's next step, in fact, _should_ be to try to get legal redress of her complaints. But she can't "get a life" or "move on" until the critical issues her case raises have been properly addressed and hopefully resolved. And they haven't been, so far. People like you, Clark, and a plethora of other defenders of the faith as expressed by Jacobs and Hopkins would just love this controversy to go away, and be swept under the rug or not upset the precarious applecart of conformist ufological belief and interpretation of "alien abduction" of long but erroneous standing. But it won't, and shouldn't, until Jacobs and Hopkins issue full mea culpas, apologize, and agree to stop using regressive hypnosis to supposedly "recover" allegedly "suppressed memories," and so far there is still no sign either of them are willing or even able to do so, is there? They won't, and maybe can't, due to their inextricably warped views that they are right, that their misinterpretations of the "alien abduction" scenarios (both of them, despite the differing and conflicted two different synopses they have written about, not to mention those of Mack, Sprinkle, and other practitioners of regressive hypnosis), and due to their fear of the personal consequences of taking the needed responsibility for their actions, legally, financially, ethically, and I suspect, primarily psychologically and emotionally. The Augean stables are long past needing Heracles to attempt to clean up this awful mess. This is a clear case of cognitive dissonance and self-defense (as Leon Festinger, et al, in "When Prophecy Fails," as early as 1956, abundantly illustrated) of both their egos and self- perceived identities as honest researchers and decent, caring human beings, regardless of the obvious facts in this matter. So they will continue to try to refute, dismiss, ridicule, and deny that either Emma Woods or Carol Rainey, among others, have either a case or just possibly might be right in their claims until they are brought to account by the evidence or forced to by civil legal or legislative means, most likely. Instead, they issue defensive, dismissive statements to attempt to denigrate their accusers, Woods and Rainey, among others, and continue their egregiously misbegotten and unscientific practices based on their personal and apparently subliminal confirmation biases, gather the faithful, and accept accolades and kudos from those who still believe in thier false conclusions and practices, which is simply delusional and plainly wrong. This is a battle royale, and for you or anyone else to suggest or urge those so treated to "get a life" or that it is "time to move on" is simply yet another feeble attempt and reflection of an arrogance and misbegotten hubris that I personally find both amazing and almost delusional itself in nature and origin. No, this isn't over by a long shot. But I do agree that, at this point, legal action on the part of Emma Woods in particular, for slander, libel, and malfeasance should be brought against David Jacobs. Of course, that means she will have to probably eventually reveal her real name at some point, find the means and financial support required to travel from Australia to bring a lengthy civil suit, and stay here long enough, utterly disrupting her life, as may be required, to deal with the inevitable delays and legal appeals even if she does win her case, which is by no means certain, and the formidable logistical and financial obstacles such a course of action obviously presents will not be easy to overcome, as you should well know. But, it may be necessary, unless some other form of compromise and arbitration is agreed to in order to preclude such a difficult and trying avenue, for all parties so involved. In the meantime, why should she retreat from defending herself from the dismissive and denigrating slings and arrows so many such as yourself and many others continue to hurl her way? Under the circumstances, if you put yourself in her place, would you? No, I didn't think so. To do so would be quite hypocritical, in fact. I think "Emma Woods" is one tough bird, and will not give up the fight for redress easily. Yes, she most probably does need psychological therapy, especially now since her apparently very damaging interactions with Jacobs, which are so clearly shown in the abuse of her psyche the "good doctor" has subjected her to as illuminated by the audio tapes Jacobs made and so oddly and obliviously provided to her, but I suspect if anyone needs any form of psychotherapy, it is Jacobs (and Hopkins, by extension, due to similar abusive and manipulative practices) himself, IMHO.
