Abductees worldwide mark 'alien abduction day'

A surprising number of people in countries all across the world believe that they have been abducted by aliens.
Despite the unusual nature of such claims, there are still a surprising number of people who believe that they have, at some stage in their lives, encountered beings from another world.

The traditional abduction experience usually involves a person being taken from their home, subjected to medical experiments and then returned with their memories of the encounter distorted or erased.

There have been many high-profile abduction cases over the years, such as that of Barney and Betty Hill - a couple who in 1961 encountered an unidentified flying object while traveling through the state of New Hampshire before experiencing a period of missing time.

Later, under hypnosis, they recalled being abducted by aliens and taken aboard the craft.
Another well known case was that of Travis Walton - a worker who disappeared after encountering a luminous disc-shaped object in Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, Arizona back in 1975.

He eventually turned up five days later, scared, confused and with fleeting memories of having encountered strange extraterrestrial entities during the time he was missing.

"We do get those reports from time to time that people have said they've been contacted directly by aliens," science writer and UFO researcher Chris Rutkowski recently told Winnipeg's CJOB radio.

"It's an interesting phenomenon. Maybe it's something as simple as misidentification of something else in their lives, but it's a very profound experience, and the numbers of people having such experiences are very significant."

"It's the type of thing where it's good to have fun with it, but remember at the back of it, there's some seriousness in the sense that people really do experience these things and it's rife for being studied by science."

Totally agree. I just mean when there's something found under the skin & such, it got there somehow, not necessarily an out of the world explanation, just something happened. I figure we're never getting the whole story, but there's still some kind of story. I honestly believe that some I've seen on TV & read about that do it to themselves for attention, but that's me from outside the situation, with no knowledge, just guessing by my judgment of who'd telling the "story."

Hello back at ya, jnccr8. Yep, that's kind of my problem. Most people I know personally are attention seekers regardless of "out of this world stories" or just wanting everybody listening to them. It gets annoying & hard to believe when anybody shares experiences because I don't know what's being stretched or by how far. Everybody's story has got to top everybody else's. I live in a US Southern state. Stretching stories is the norm here.

Only among themselves hopefully..... .....finding out what happened to @acute and a pair of my missing football shorts was enough for me.

I don't think I would like to be probed, even if they tempted me with a 3 breasted alien woman.

That maybe so but memories of abductions can resurface naturally in abductees without hypnosis....

I know that happens. It can be introduced through sleep paralysis which happens to many people.
