UFO conference held in Maine

The 'Experiencers Speak' conference in Gorham featured talks from several well known abductees.

The event was set up by Audrey and Debbie Hewins who started their own abductee support group after having endured a lifetime of abduction experiences. The keynote speaker at the event was Travis Walton, a logger who believes that in 1974 he was abducted by extraterrestrials for a period of five days.

The niece of abductees Barney and Betty Hill, Kathy Marden, also spoke at the event. Marden has written a book about the famous case of her aunt and uncle's abduction in the 1960s, a case that remains to this day one of the most compelling abduction stories ever told.

"UFO believers gathered at a conference in Maine to share their stories of close encounters and hear from speakers who said they've been abducted by extraterrestrials."

These people may actually believe that the incident occurred. But, there are a host of phenomena, such as sleep paralysis, night terrors, etc., that can more realistically explain some of these incidents.

While I have difficulty at times with some of the stories I have heard at a couple of these conferences; mostly the ones in which the experiencer is telling about the messages from the space brothers. But there are some very interesting stories out there that will not be heard unless gatherings such as these are held and that would be a shame. I have met some very down to earth and seemingly rational people who believe they have had some profound experiences. I was not there, I do not know the reality of their events. I am willing to listen. During a UFO conference I attended many years ag... [More]

At least it's a good message. Maybe he was listening to some old Beatles tunes. Love was one of their favorite themes. Love is All You Need. ...of course food and shelter helps too!

I get "night terrors" and have a terrible physical reaction like I'm attacked by ghosts if I accidently kick the doona off and get cold. It's amazing how scary my dreams become because of temperature. Sadly in my case it's a mundane explanation for a scary experience.
