If one was to say that they believe in the UFO phenomenon, what would most people think? Would they wisely examine the evidence objectively in order to come to a plausible conclusion, or make the mistake of immediately accepting or rejecting it?
All beliefs demand some sort of a study, and therefore depend solely on the evidence provided which leads to a hypothesis. Accepted hypothesis's generally lead to plausible theories. The only problem, though, for this type of research, is the majority of our scientists and psychologists remain very weary over certain subject matters.
This methodology is simply a contradiction within the scientific field. The true scientists of our world are able to rid their biases on all subject matter and objectively research them. As a result, scientists are able to research many different subjects and expand the horizons to the mysterious. Isn't it the scientists' duty and nature to research these phenomenon thoroughly?
The UFO phenomenon demands serious consideration, for the evidence is overwhelming. There are hundreds of thousands of UFO sightings every year, though the majority of them never get reported. The ones that do get reported are either written off as hoaxes or thought to be of more earthly origin. Many sightings are never explained at all because the evidence surrounding the phenomenon is too great to be disregarded as something as ordinary as a weather balloon.
Other examples of irrational explanations used to write off UFOs include, conventional aircrafts, flares, satellites, planets, and even swamp gas! If people think these absurd explanations are true, then everyone in the world is living a lie.
These explanations need to be somewhat reasonable, or do they?
It is the duty of the government to keep any national security threat under wraps. This is necessary to keep the population from mass hysteria, and thus is justifiable. I think it is truly unreasonable to ever expect the government or military to ever come out and say,
"Hey folks, we are being visited by aliens, we are unable to control our skies, we do not know if they are friendly, and we have no idea what we are doing."
If they sense the need to lie, they will.
For those sightings too great to be hoaxes or ordinary occurrences, the only reasonable response is admitting it actually happened. We must accept the notion of visits by extraterrestrials or the involvement of a superior intelligence. I believe as human beings it is our duty to open up our minds, and to begin thinking about these potential scenarios, because whether people like it or not, it may be happening.
Prominent Ufologist Stanton Friedman states:
Abstract: Careful review of a vast array of relevant evidence clearly leads to the conclusion that some unidentified flying objects are intelligently controlled vehicles whose origin is outside our solar system. All the arguments against the extraterrestrial origin seem to be based upon false reasoning, misrepresentation of evidence, neglect of relevant information, ignorance of relevant technology, or pseudo sophisticated assumptions about alien appearance, motivation, or government secrecy.
There are extraordinary amounts of evidence for UFO sightings, from photographs, video recordings, commercial ground control radar, military ground radar, air traffic control voice recordings, and military jet radar.
There are even historical pieces of evidence consisting of ancient paintings, carvings, sculptures, hieroglyphics, biblical stories and further ancient writings. One of the most compelling sightings took place in Bentwater, England. While on routine patrol, current Air Force officer Sgt. John Burroughs saw lights flash in Rendlesham Forest.
A team of UFO researchers investigated the event, marking it as one of the most credible sightings to date.
The following are voices from a tape transcript in which Lt. Col. Charles Halt, Sgt. John Burroughs, and Sergeant Monroe Nevilles made while witnessing the second night of events over RAF Bentwaters/Woodbridge:
HALT: There is no doubt about it - there is some type of strange flashing red light ahead.
Burroughs: There! It’s yellow.
HALT: I saw a yellow tinge in it, too. Weird! It appears to be maybe moving a little bit this way? It’s brighter than it has been. It’s coming this way. It is definitely coming this way. Pieces of it are shooting off. There is no doubt about it. This is weird!
HALT: OK, we’re looking at the thing; we’re probably about two to three hundred yards away. It looks like an eye winking at you. It's still moving from side to side. And when you put the Starscope on it, it sort of has a hollow center, a dark center; it’s like a pupil of an eye looking at you, winking. And it flashes so bright to the Starscope that it almost burns your eye.
HALT: 3:05. We see strange strobe-like flashes to the... rather sporadic, but there’s definitely something there. Some kind of phenomenon.
HALT: 3:06. At about ten degrees, horizon, directly north, we’ve got two strange objects, er, half moon shape, dancing about, with colored lights on ‘em. At, er, guess to be about five to ten miles out, maybe less. The half moons have now turned into full circles as though there was an eclipse or something there for a minute or two.
HALT: 03:15. Now we’ve got an object about 10 degrees directly south, 10 degrees off the horizon. And the ones to the north are moving. One’s moving away from us.
Nevilles: Moving out fast.
Nevilles: This one on the right’s heading away, too.
HALT: They’re both heading north. Hey, here he comes from the south, he’s coming toward us now.
HALT: Now we’re observing what appears to be a beam coming down to the ground.
SHOUT IN BACKGROUND: Colors!
HALT: This is unreal.
HALT: 03:30 and the objects are still in the sky, although the one to the south looks like it’s losing a little bit of altitude. We’re going around and heading back toward the base.
HALT: The object to the south is still beaming down lights to the ground.
HALT: 04:00 hours. One object still hovering over Woodbridge base at about five to ten degrees off the horizon, still moving erratic and similar lights and beaming down as earlier.
In addition to the UFO sightings, countless animal mutilations are reported every year.
This is truly a bizarre global phenomenon. The animals found range from cows and horses to smaller domestic animals, such as sheep, goats, pigs, rabbits and even some big game wildlife such as deer and elk. Furthermore, there are the horrifying cases of pet dogs and cats being found mutilated. These occurrences tend to be extreme, for they have been found cut in half, beheaded, with no paws, and even skinned.
The strangest factor regarding this phenomenon, are the characteristic similarities of each mutilation. The majority of animals found are exsanguinated (all their blood has been removed). With the blood of the animal totally drained, at least a drop would be expected to be found on the crime scene, but that is just not the case. Something has extracted the blood out of these animals leaving no apparent trace.
Additionally, there are no signs of a struggle, footprints, or tire tracks found anywhere on the ground around the body. There is even evidence of clamp marks on animals’ legs, which indicates that they are taken from their normal environment and experimented on elsewhere.
Linda Moulton Howe is a renowned researcher in animal mutilations and crop circles. She has discovered that the typical mutilated animal consistently has huge oval shaped incisions around the jaw bone, and in most cases the exposed jaw is completely removed. In some cases she has found the tongue, which appears to have been removed from a precise incision deep within the throat.
She has commonly observed the removal of at least one eyeball. In female cows, it is typical to find the removal of the udders, and in all animal mutilations (including both sexes) it is extremely common to find the complete removal of the genitals.
Linda Moulton Howe states from her book An Alien Harvest:
For the first time that tissue gathered from mutilator cuts in Arkansas on March 11, 1989, revealed the following characteristics under microscopic examination:
The line is pinpoint thin
The line was subjected to high heat, probably 300 degrees Fahrenheit or above, leaving a hard and darkened edge
The cuts were made rapidly, probably in two minutes or less, because there is no inflammatory cell destruction which typically begins in a few minutes after any trauma to tissue
For some people, the shocking amount of evidence to support an ongoing phenomenon around animal mutilations is not enough.
Therefore, I challenge them to explain why there is evidence of high levels of concentrated heat, radiation, and unusually large amounts of magnesium around the corpse. The only feasible explanation to this is that some sort of an instrument is being used to make precise incisions for the extraction of body parts unlike anything the medical field has ever witnessed. This instrument used must be some sort of laser, and very similar to what a surgeon would have in his operating room.
However, the problem with that notion is the fact that it is impossible for a human to bring a laser of that magnitude into a farmer's field for any apparent reason, especially for a couple hours in the darkest hours of the day. Beyond that, why would anyone take the jaw of a cow or various body parts in covert when anyone has access to these parts through a local butcher?
Other unexplained phenomena providing amazing evidence of extraterrestrials are crop circles. These marvelous designs, which have been found in crop fields throughout the world, are mainly found in England.
Crop circles are very intriguing not only in design but in the field of science as well. Skeptics consider crop circles as being man made. Some even look at it as an art form. It is possible to create a number of these designs with just a board and rope in the wee hours of night. In order to create a design, one must apply force to the board and use this as a tool to create the formations in the crops.
This, of course, leaves plenty of evidence that something has destroyed the corn by applying force to break the corn and rearrange the structure. However, in many cases there is no evidence of brute force. The corn has been delicately maneuvered into a structured design. There is no way this can be done with a rope and board.
In order to do this, a device is needed that will neutralize the corn's molecules so the corns shape can be altered at a perfect 90 degree angle without breaking its stalk. When one studies crop circles, the support of extraterrestrial intervention goes well beyond the complexity of the designs. The evidence has actually been narrowed down to the molecular level.
The scientists who have discovered this remain baffled because this is overwhelming evidence that something has affected these stalks of corn. Many scientists cannot accept the notion that we are being visited by extraterrestrials.
Therefore, they resort to typical explanations such as the earth's magnetic field. That hypothesis is a failed one because these intricate designs are not developed by the earth's magnetic field. Ever since the dawn of man, crop circles have been recorded. However a significant increase of crop circles began in the 1960's, and since then have remained sighted across the world.
In addition to the crop circles themselves, there have been numerous sightings and hard evidence recorded on video camera of tiny orbs circling crops and lowering the vegetation on camera! This overwhelming evidence supports the theory that we are being visited by extraterrestrial beings or some superior intelligence.
However, nothing of this magnitude ever gets reported on television through CNN or any large media network. Simply because our society is basically programmed to come home and watch a rerun of war on terrorism, the newest murder plot, and weather disasters. News corporations and the media need to open up their minds, and begin to at least expose the world to this material.
The most incredible piece of evidence are the alleged abductions that have taken place and the implants that have been surgically removed from the abductees. The majority of cases begin with a greatly traumatized, frightened, or confused individual who struggles with sleep, restlessness, and even flashbacks. Most of them usually see a psychologist for observation. These psychologists usually put their patients under hypnosis in an attempt to have them relive their experience. In most cases, a fairly consistent episode takes place, with the victim either driving down a road or sleeping in their bed at night.
Then, there is an onset of occurrences, whether that be a UFO sighting or shadowy beings that surround the victim in his or her bedroom. This shocking experience is quite often concluded with another phenomenon, referred to as "lost time".
Typically, a couple of hours have been lost with either little or no recollection of what has happened. This experience leaves an individual very confused, often frightened and finally in despair.
In many cases, a psychologist is sought after in order to revitalize the abductee, but that is not always the case, according to renowned psychologist and author Bud Hopkins.
Bud Hopkins has researched this phenomenon for over a twenty year period and has discovered that the majority of abduction cases are extremely similar and identical in many ways. He has found that most abductions take place at night and a majority occur when people are sleeping or driving their car; however, there have been many reported cases in which victims are taken from tents, canoes and from the woods when camping.
Furthermore, there have been group abductions recorded, which provide undeniable proof of an enduring phenomenon. As if that is not enough, Bud Hopkins has found many patients with scoop marks and implants throughout their body.
All of this hard evidence makes it very difficult to explain the majority of their abduction experiences with conventional science. The majority of psychologists rely on the sleep paralysis phenomenon to explain all abductions. They tend to overlook a number of cases in which the abduction occurs when the victim is awake. This is because mainstream science does not support such farfetched theories.
They tend to shut their minds off to new ideas even when evidence points in an unexpected direction. Psychologists need to rid themselves of all biases on the subject matter, and examine it objectively and logically with an open mind. Budd Hopkins follows this logical research method and uses it to support all of his investigations. He has come to an understanding that people are being abducted by something unusual. According to Hopkins, the abductors may be extraterrestrial, government officials, or some other kind of being.
Either way, people are being taken against their will, and mind control is being used to suppress their memories.
The abduction phenomenon is convincing in a number of ways, but, the most convincing and yet provoking piece of evidence that is used to support the phenomenon are the implants that are being extracted by a number of scientists across the world. There have been a number of cases in which abductees discover strange markings on their body.
Usually these markings lead to further examination by a doctor. Many doctors tend to disregard these scars and markings as being something ordinary. On the other hand, it is impossible to disregard objects or implants that are found underneath the skin using x-rays. Yet again, it is common for most doctors to simply disregard these objects as being something of extraterrestrial nature.
The majority try to explain these abnormal implants as being some sort of freak accident, even when the patient swears he or she never had one. It is just simply impossible for doctors and scientists to disregard all of these objects as being natural and common since most of these implants have no beginning in the minds of the patients. In some cases, there is no proof of trauma or scars to support implant findings.
Many people remain very weary about the origin of these objects. Some victims tend to overlook or disregarded the implants, but a majority have decided to get these anomalies removed from there bodies. Some victims believe implants were put there by extraterrestrials, although a large majority of people have no idea whatsoever about what has happened.
In one case, an anonymous man from the West Coast and an anonymous woman from the East Coast had both consulted their doctors about objects imbedded in their bodies. Neither one of these undisclosed individuals had ever met each other.
Both of them decided to have there implants removed, and, as it turned out, both objects were identical in every way. It was very startling and somewhat frightening for both individuals, as they felt the only explanation for these implants was that somehow these objects were put into their bodies in a surgical fashion not practiced or taught through any institution. Many doctors have been intrigued with the precise surgical placement of these objects.
Along with the precise placement and challenging location, doctors are astonished when patients react sometimes violently to the removal of implants during surgery. Even though they are under the influence of anesthesia, the body some how reacts to the removal of these implants almost as if it was connected to the nervous system.
This phenomenon raises many questions, as do all the phenomena discussed throughout this report. Many people doubt the likelihood of such mysterious events, because they fear ridicule from people, or they fear the subject and the mystery that may be occurring around them. On the other hand, a number of people are very open-minded and they objectively reason their way through life no matter how difficult the subject may be.
This subject really should not be so hard to understand but usually is.
However, everyone is conditioned to live in a certain way and any change causes a great deal of fear in those who cannot adapt to new situations. Since the government knows it would be risky to disclose anything of this magnitude to the public, the public may never hear the true side of the story through the mainstream media.
The majority of documentaries covering the UFO phenomenon have a tendency of letting bias beliefs, and closed mindedness, dictate the quality and depth of reporting.
Ufologist Stanton Friedman states:
The primary UFO evidence consists of UFO sighting reports, multi-witness close encounters, still and motion pictures, radar tracking, simultaneous radar-visual sightings, physical traces (environmental changes in dirt, vegetation, trees, etc.) produced by UFOs, abductions by aliens of Earthlings, and very likely (in hidden locations) crashed UFOs and preserved alien bodies.
The worldwide origin of the various data collections indicate similar experiences occurring and being reported independently all over the planet.
The overall quality and quantity of reports is far better than most people - especially open-minded skeptics and scientists and newspaper reporters "are aware". When evidence like this exists for any subject matter, it is absolutely immoral and beyond unscientific to withhold any evidence from scientific examination. Therefore, the most upsetting topic is, without doubt, the debunking that takes place.
For example, in a recent ABC Peter Jennings documentary over the UFO phenomenon, Bud Hopkins was a guest. Throughout the entire show, he and his counterpart on the UFO phenomenon were rigorously misrepresented and debunked. In the following interview, Bud Hopkins speaks his true thoughts and feelings over how ABC deceivingly edited and presented the show to the public.
During the past year Peter Jennings's producers interviewed me a number of times, and because I sensed what they had in mind, I made, as a preemptive strike, a number of careful, highly specific observations about the UFO abduction phenomenon.
All of these crucial points - recorded by ABC on videotape - were designed to underline the physical reality of UFO abductions and to demonstrate the implausibility of current skeptical explanations. To its shame, ABC suppressed ALL of these observations. I knew, of course, that the skeptics’ favorite explanation du jour is impossibly simple: abduction reports, they believe, are all due to misperceived “sleep paralysis.” Ranking as a distant second is another erroneous belief: abduction reports, they say, “ONLY emerge under hypnosis,” and since hypnosis is “totally unreliable,” all abduction reports must be discarded.
In the light of these tediously familiar errors and misstatements, I made certain in my taped interviews to explain the following:
In the first two decades of our research, ALL of the central abduction cases involved people who were outside their houses when they were taken. NONE were lying paralyzed in their bedrooms. They were driving cars, walking, fishing, hunting and even, in one famous case, driving a tractor on a farm. “Sleep paralysis” as a blanket explanation of UFO abductions is therefore, ipso facto, a ludicrous non-starter. Nevertheless ALL of my insistent statements on this point were systematically eliminated by the producers.
Second, I indicated that there are many abduction reports involving two, three, six or more people who were taken simultaneously and whose highly detailed recollections are virtually identical. This fact alone eliminates not only sleep paralysis” but “fantasy-proneness” or any other idiosyncratic psychological aberrations as triggering causes. My descriptions of these many cases of multiple abductions were likewise completely suppressed by the producers.
Third, I showed the interviewers many photos of, again, virtually identical scoop marks, consistent straight-line scars and ground landing traces at abduction sites, implants that have been removed and other physical sequel. ALL of these vivid photographic examples of physical evidence were suppressed by the producers.
Fourth, I was not alone in making these points. My colleague Dr. David Jacobs was asked by ABC to carry out a hypnotic regression for the camera, but since the woman he chose had been abducted in the daytime while driving a car, the case did not fit ABC’s “sleep paralysis” agenda and was thus not only suppressed, but Dr. Jacobs’ many hours of taped interviews were also scrapped.
Fifth, I made it very clear that perhaps 30% of all the abduction reports collected by researchers are recalled WITHOUT THE AID OF HYPNOSIS, a fact which renders the issue of hypnosis moot. This point was also suppressed by the producers whose only goal, it appeared, was to eliminate any data that contradicted their transparently false debunking hypotheses.
Despite my having presented - and reiterated - the points above, the producers chose to trot out on camera two debunking scientists (whose experiments with a mere handful of subjects have yet to be taken seriously by the psychological community) to buttress the untenable “sleep paralysis” theory, the false “no physical evidence” claim, and the demonstrably untrue “its all hypnosis” assertion.
The smug presentations of these two would-be experts were accompanied by the producers’ lurid “reenactments” of “sleep paralysis” phenomena, complete with flashing lights and spooky music.
The taped testimony of a serious mental health professional like Dr. John Mack was likewise suppressed, along with my statement that over the years eight psychiatrists and numerous other mental health professionals had come to me about their own UFO abductions.
The producers’ obvious goal was to conceal the fact that within the mental health community there are many professionals who look with amusement on the “sleep paralysis” theory, and who accept the physical reality of UFO abductions. So, what can one say about such a deliberately dishonest presentation as Peter Jennings's “Seeing is Believing” take on abductions?
Perhaps one can only shrug and warn, yet again, that the incurious members of the press and the many blinkered, conservative scientists had better collectively pull their heads up out of the sand and join us in our work.
Whatever one’s personal attitude toward the UFO abduction phenomenon, science insists that an extraordinary phenomenon demands an extraordinary investigation.
What ABC served up on Thursday night was, instead, an extraordinary whitewash of the abduction phenomenon, and a brutal suppression of the evidence for what may well be the most portentous event in human history.
Peter Jennings and his staff should be ashamed.
New York Friday
February 25, 2005
The proceeding statement concludes Budd Hopkins true thoughts and opinions over the ABC television event "Seeing is Believing." It is hard for anybody to overlook all the evidence that supports Budd's aggravation of the taping and presentation of the show.
Without a doubt there is a huge phenomenon taking place right under our noses, and it needs to be taken seriously and looked at with true audacity, and, of course, an open mind.
Again, Stanton Friedman states:
There is no doubt in my mind, after 37 years of study and investigation that the evidence is overwhelming that planet Earth is being visited by intelligently controlled vehicles whose origin is extraterrestrial.
There are no acceptable arguments against flying saucer reality, only people who either haven't studied the relevant data or have a strong will not to believe that Earth is at the bottom of the heap sociologically and technologically in our local galactic neighborhood.
In the end, everyone needs to get over their irrational beliefs and insecurities toward this subject matter.
One must rid all biases, and actually study this ongoing phenomenon in a rational manner. As human beings, it is our right to know the truth regarding the true origin of UFOs.
However, the clock is ticking for many individuals. There is only so much time left for a number of ufologists, to get to the bottom of this phenomenon. Moreover, it is absolutely insane to hold this truth from the public, regardless of the repercussions it may have.
It is time for this mystery to unfold, because there is no point in living a lifelong lie.
