Many people, especially with a christian background, are afraid of the UFO phenomena and usually perceive it as the influences of the devil or keep another fear pattern against it. I found this fragement on alt.alien.visitors (kind of rude newsgroup) who might show two different christian point of views on the UFO phenomena:
Someone wrote:... According to the Bible; So as it was in the days of Moses, So shall it be in the last days. In the days of Moses, the fallen angels (demons) had mated with the human race and created a hybrid race called the (Nephelim?). It is clear to me that this is once again part of their agenda. He shall come as an angel of light and deceive the very elect!The connection between the modern UFO phenomenon and the Bible is arguable. I would strongly disagree, however,that these superhuman beings are demons. The evidence (from the Bible itself, in fact) suggests that the UFO phenomenon is by no means a method by which Lucifer is attempting to deceive us but instead is the method by which a society of ultra-advanced extraterrestrials (the gods, from Hebrew "Elohim") have been interacting with humanity ever since creating us through genetic engineering. Aliens and angels are one and the same! These beings are working for the benefit of Mankind! A good book which points this out is The Watchers by Raymond Fowler. It deals with the famous abduction/revelation case of Betty Andreasson Luca in which she discovered the higher spiritual nature of these beings commonly thought of as unfeeling evil aliens. I would also point out that a shining disk came down from the sky in front of 70,000 people during the Fatima visitation! So this is Satan's work, right? I don't think so. The whole Yahweh versus Lucifer thing has been blown way out of proportion: The latter challenged the former for leadership of the alien society in a classic power struggle; he lost and was probably eliminated long ago. We do not need to worry about Lucifer any more because Jesus Christ (the demigod with a human mother and a superhuman father) has been appointed to lead planet Earth in next great epoch of our history. I would also strongly recommend reading the works of Zecharia Sitchin, which give the full story of how a higher race from the stars was deified by humanity, etc. Genesis Revisited is a really enlightening thought-provoking read. Here is part of an article I posted in this newsgroup a couple months ago. It details the UFO phenomenon in biblical times.
WHO IS THE HEBREW GOD?
Over time, the Western God has been transformed into a fundamentally dualistic entity. He is still the great ruler of Earth as described in the Bible, the leader of the angelic society and creator of the human race; but he now is also the One Universal Consciousness of the Eastern faiths, the infinite energy force that created the Cosmos. Are these two concepts just attributes of the same "God" -- or could it be that the biblical God is not a Deity at all, but instead represents an ultra-advanced extraterrestrial species that is intimately involved in the affairs of Earth?
The Hebrews believed in "Elohim," a plural term which should be literally translated as "the gods." They were never monotheistic, at least not in the modern sense. The single being we today think of as God was the lord of planet Earth in the time of the ancient Hebrews -- a being named Yahweh who occupied the highest place in the angelic hierarchy. He was physical and imperfect, as were all the other superhumans, but because of their relative superiority in all respects -- biological, intellectual, spiritual, technological -- they were deified by virtually every ancient culture including the one that produced our Bible. As Arthur C. Clarke once said, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." The superhumans thus appeared supernatural in ancient times, as they still do today. But today we understand that other planets and other solar systems sprinkle the depths of space... and that higher beings might very well have found our tiny blue-green world a long time ago. WHAT DOES GENESIS REALLY SAY? The biblical Creation story is merely a reinterpretation of much earlier Sumerian texts. In the Atra Hasis and others, we find a detailed account of how "the gods" came to Earth and mixed their genes with ape-men. The name "Adam" refers not to one specific man but instead to the human race as a whole. The Adam were put in the garden of Eden (the fertile region of Mesopotamia) to "dress it and keep it" (till the soil for their heavenly masters). The fall of Man was a slave rebellion supported by one of the two competing superhuman leaders (Lucifer). When it succeeded, humans were given the ability to reproduce and their first civilization. HOW DID OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE GODS CHANGE? After the Age of Creation came a new epoch in human history: the Age of Lordship. This lasted until the "Great Flood" -- the melting of the polar ice caps at the end of the last ice age, an event which completely destroyed coastal cities. Until then, the superhumans inhabited their own colonies on Earth and directly ruled over human societies. But the Flood ushered in the Age of Kingship. Superhuman lords no longer walked among their human subjects in the great cities of Sumeria, but instead returned to the sky from where they chose people to lead the civilizations of Earth. Meanwhile, Homo sapiens had spread from the Middle East to all six inhabitable continents, producing the races we know today. The Hebrews, a nomadic desert people of the Sinai, had an especially close relationship with the gods; in fact, they came to be known as "the chosen people." Yahweh and the angels watched over them from the heavens above, often intervening for their benefit in various ways. How then, we might ask, did the superhumans make contact with people on Earth? UFOS IN THE BIBLE? Although many traditional Jews, Christians, and Muslims would probably reject this idea with little thought, it seems likely that similar phenomena were observed in biblical times. One can read the scriptures with only a little background knowledge and discover numerous examples of anomalous aerial craft appearing in the sky. We find dozens of shining clouds, balls of fire, wheels, and flaming chariots which bear a striking resemblance to modern UFOs. Here are a few general quotes from the Torah which help to make this point: "Behold, he [Yahweh] shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind..." (Jeremiah 4:13). "Behold, the Lord rideth upon a swift cloud..." (Isaiah 19:1). "And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night..." (Isaiah 4:5). There are also many specific cases described in both Testaments of the Bible in which strange objects appear in the sky. Let's look at a few: Throughout their wanderings in the desert, the Elohim guide the Hebrews from above, riding ahead in various craft. Perhaps the best example takes place during the exodus from Egypt: "... the children of Israel went up and harnessed out of the land of Egypt. And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light..." (Exodus 13:18,21). The story continues with a pursuit by the Egyptian army. "And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them... but it gave light by night to [the Hebrews]: so that the [Egyptians] came not near the other all the night." (Exodus 14:19-20). Since literal clouds don't have fiery pillars, one can reasonably conclude that the object was something very different -- perhaps a UFO with a descending beam of light. One is also forced to wonder how the Israelites got across the Red Sea. Could they have been flown across? The prophet Ezekiel, a frequent recipient of extraterrestrial visitations, described a strange object in the sky: "And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it..." (Ezekiel 1:4). This could very well be a modern-day account of a UFO sighting: A swirling wind accompanied a huge disk-shaped object surrounded by a bright glow. Ezekiel goes on to describe the strange craft descending from the sky, noting its resemblance to a spinning wheel and mentioning that it is piloted by a powerful-looking being. In another incredible incident, the transfiguration of Jesus Christ, we find an excellent array of UFO-related phenomena (Matthew 17:2,5-6). First of all, Jesus Christ brought his disciples up on a mountain, where he showed himself as the glorious figure of a nordic-superhuman. "And [Jesus] was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light...." Then a UFO appears, provoking intense fear in the onlookers. "... behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud.... And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid." Finally, we read in Luke's version of the story that "... they feared as they entered into the cloud." (Luke 9:34). WHAT ABOUT ALIEN ABDUCTIONS? The subject is certainly one of the most controversial aspects of the whole phenomenon. In light of this fact, I expect to receive many flames in response to my argument that it occurred in biblical times. People have concocted the most ridiculous stereotypes about angels: They have become winged cherubs strumming harps, etc, a view that is totally uncorroborated by the Bible or any other ancient text. In reality, the Bible repeatedly shows angels provoking fear in those who see them -- these cases can be thought of as grey encounters, while non-frightful incidents are most likely nordic encounters. Probably the best example of standard alien abduction is the story of "Jacob's ladder." Imagine that you were on a long hike through the wilderness and you lay down to sleep for the night under the starry sky. Suddenly you wake up with a start, but instead of seeing the morning sun you are greeted by a diagonal shaft of light descending from above, upon which strange creatures are going up and down. You hear a voice telling you that "your seed shall be spread far and wide," that it is necessary and important for the future of humanity. The voice continues, saying that "we will watch over you, for you are a chosen one." Then everything fades to black. You open your eyes and it's morning. "Must have been a dream," you rationalize, but an irrational fear keeps clawing back into your brain. "I've gotta get away from this place!" you shout, and quickly depart. If this happened to you, what would you think? Alien abduction, right? Let's look at what happened to Jacob: "And he [Jacob] dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said.... thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest.... And Jacob awaked out of his sleep... And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place!" (Genesis 28:12-17). It is especially interesting to note that human and superhuman crossbreeding is possible. At least the Bible says so: "And it came to pass... That the sons of God [angels] saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of reknown." (Genesis 6:1-2,4). Who were these mighty men? They were demigods, in quite the literal sense, and many were chosen as kings to rule human societies. They were giants because they inherited height from the nordic-superhumans; they were "of old" because they inherited longevity from the nordic-superhumans.
WAS JESUS CHRIST A DEMIGOD? He was a demigod created to become the great king of the Jews, the messiah. Throughout Christian history, people have wondered about the virgin birth -- but the answer is now clear: Jesus was a "Son of God, son of man" simply because he was half alien and half human! We find evidence for this belief directly in the Gospels; the early Christians wrote it themselves. Consider this story (Luke 1:26-32,34-35,38): "... the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee... And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying.... And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found favour with God." She is thus visited by a superhuman being who tells her she is somehow special or chosen, and she is afraid. The story goes on to reveal the visitation's shocking purpose. "And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest.... Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing that I know [have intercourse with] not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word." Mary agrees to submit to Yahweh as his handmaid, which in that time meant a concubine! She will be impregnated with godly sperm in order to produce the king of Israel! On the night of Christ's birth some strange phenomena are observed, further confirming his superhuman origin. The famous "star of Bethlehem," for example, is said to have led the wise men to the infant Jesus, stopping over the place where he lay; no actual star of course could do this, so we must conclude that it was in fact a UFO. Other bright lights and shining clouds in the sky are described in two of the apocryphal books (Protevangelion and 1 Infancy), as well as a state of suspended animation in the village during Mary's labor. We also find the story of the shepherds, who see an angel descend from the sky in a brilliant glow of light to proclaim the birth of the messiah. The examples presented in this article are only those which I consider the best and most interesting; there actually exist many others throughout the Bible which could also be discussed.
Rev. Dr. Dark's CornerOne important flaw with this entire line of reasoning, while it is certainly interesting, and dserving of some consideration, it totally disregards the prophetic affiliation of many bible writings, their (quite provable) correlations with--earth-- history; and, despite the blanket assertions of its authors, has no physical evidence to support its claims. This is the damning lack of proof that has always relegated UFO theories and research to the realm of Pseudoscience. Biblical prophecy will simply not serve as "proof", even though scripture describes airborn objects in a variety of passages, mosst notably on the famed account of the prophet Ezekial. It has been proven too readily by Biblical scholars throughout time, and the world over that these writings and the images contained within them, are contemporary metaphorical images that had deep mystical meanings in the Ancient world, particularly to the pre-christian Hebrew. It would be more responsible, perhaps, and quite less sensational, to suggest the similarity in the images and occurances to modern UFO/abduction accounts can be traced to as yet undiscovered subconcious imagery, perhaps tied to the genetic memory. An analogous set of correlations exists between the Men In Black, and Medieval visitations by demons or the Devil (The Man in Black); the marked similarity in the dream-like experiences of UFO abductees and 'abductees' in former times, i.e, those who reported being kidnapped by witches, abducted by fairies, etc. This literature is obscure and hard to find, but by all means available.

According to the NASA Astronaut Neil Armstrong the Aliens have a base on the Moon and told us in no uncertain terms to get off and stay off the Moon. According to hitherto un-confirmed reports, both Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin saw UFOs shortly after that historic landing on the Moon in Apollo 11 on 21 July 1969. I remember hearing one of the astronauts refer to a "light" in or on a crater during the television transmission, followed by a request from mission control for further information. Nothing more was heard. According to a former NASA employee Otto Binder, unnamed radio hams with their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed NASA's broadcasting outlets picked up the following exchange: NASA: Whats there? Mission Control calling Apollo 11... Apollo11: These "Babies" are huge, Sir! Enormous! OH MY GOD! You wouldn't believe it! I'm telling you there are other spacecraft out there, Lined up on the far side of the crater edge! They're on the Moon watching us! Here is a RealAudio recording of Neil Armstrong talking to NASA, from the official NASA broadcast, with Armstrong excitedly saying things like "This is unbelievable!" as he approaches the rim of a crater. This audio appeared on a Swiss TV broadcast in January 1997. For more on this audio, including images, see: http://www.worldlink.it/nonsiamosoli/voce_a11.htm (this site is in Italian). A certain professor, who wished to remain anonymous, was engaged in a discussion with Neil Armstrong during a NASA symposium. Professor: What REALLY happened out there with Apollo 11? Armstrong: It was incredible, of course we had always known there was a possibility, the fact is, we were warned off!(by the Aliens). There was never any question then of a space station or a moon city. Professor: How do you mean "warned off"? Armstrong: I can't go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology - Boy, were they big!...and menacing! No, there is no question of a space station. Professor: But NASA had other missions after Apollo 11? Armstrong: Naturally - NASA was committed at that time, and couldn't risk panic on Earth. But it really was a quick scoop and back again. According to a Dr. Vladimir Azhazha: "Neil Armstrong relayed the message to Mission Control that two large, mysterious objects were watching them after having landed near the moon module. But this message was never heard by the public -- because NASA censored it." According to a Dr. Aleksandr Kasantsev, Buzz Aldrin took color movie film of the UFOs from inside the module, and continued filming them after he and Armstrong went outside. Armstrong confirmed that the story was true but refused to go into further detail, beyond admitting that the CIA was behind the cover-up.
Terminology and Definitions Used in UFOlogy Astronomical Units (A.U.) An A.U. is a measurement of space. One A.U. is the distance from the earth to the sun. Close Encounters (CE) & Visual Sightings The main classification of UFO reports in use is based upon one used by Dr J. Allan Hynek in his book "The UFO Experience" (Aberlard-Schuman 1972). It should be noted that many other classification systems have been devised by other researchers. Briefly the Hynek system is : NL (nocturnal light) A simple visual sighting of a unidentified flying light seen at night. ND (nocturnal disc) A simple visual sighting of a unidentified flying extended or structured light source seen at night. (This is an extension to Hynek's system). DD (daylight disc) A simple visual sighting of a UFO with distinct shape seen during the day. Radar Cases UFOs detected by Radar Radar Visual Cases UFOs observed visually whilst being simulataneously on radar. From Hynek's study these make up 1 to 2% of reports. Close Encounters of the first kind (CE1, CEI) As first defined by Hynek, a CE1 is an observation of a UFO within 150 yards. Close Encounters of the second kind (CE2, CEII) A UFO which leaves some form of physical evidence Example: A burn where the UFO appeared to touch the ground or the finding of material of unknown makeup. Close Encounters of the third kind (CE3, CEIII) A visual sighting of an occupant or entity associated with a UFO. An analysis by Hynek of 650 reports found only 1% to be CE3 (Close Encounters beyond the third kind are extensions to the basic Hynek system. Different authors have used the same designation to mean different things.) Close Encounters of the forth kind (CE4, CEIV) An abduction of an individual by an alien being or race. Close Encounters of the fifth kind (CE5, CEV) A direct contact or communication with alien being or race. Example: Billie Meier with the Pleiadians, U.S.Govt. with the Greys, or channeling. Main Source: JLS19@psuvm.psu.edu (Janet Smith) firstname.lastname@example.org (Chris Rutkowski) Marfa Lights Marfa lights are balls of lights that appear, change different colors and dance around in the air. These lights where named after the town that they have been appearing in, Marfa Texas. They have also been sited in other areas. Some theories as to what they are include Ball lighting, Car headlights, and Alien space ships. The last current sighting I'm aware of was Marfa Texas on September 1 1992. A small booklet on the Marfa Lights has been written by Dennis Stacey, editor of the MUFON Journal, discussing many of the cases and the theories. For details contact the author or MUFON.
Men In Black (MIB) These are a group of individuals who are said to wear black suits and drive and fly around in unmarked black cars and helicopters. They go about threatening people who have claimed to have seen UFOs into not talking about what they witnessed. The very first occurrence of MIB was traced to a man named Albert K. Bender. He was the editor of a flying saucer publication called the "Space Review" In the October 1953 issue he placed an announcement stating that he had come across information that would solve the flying saucer mystery but they could not print it because they were ordered not to. They then ended the announcement warning others in saucer work to be "very cautious" they then stopped their publications. Later in an interview Bender stated that "three men wearing dark suits" had ordered him to stop publishing flying saucer material, and that he had complied with the order because he had been "scared to death" of them. He later published a book called "Flying Saucers and the Three Men in Black" Mains Source: "A Review of MIBS (Men In Black) : A History" ParaNet File Number: 00171 Published 1991 by ParaNet Information Service Also see: Flying Saucers and the Three Men in Black by Albert K. Bender Tectonic Strain Theory (TST) A theory of electromagnetic effects upon the human brain and/or the physical environment, such that all Forteana including UFOs, ghosts, ESP, sasquatch, and religious fervour can be explained as being caused by seismic activity generating electromagnetic radiation which in turn makes people think they are witnesses to an anomalous event. Alternatively, the EMM radiation can luminesce so that it appears as a UFO. Chief proponent: Michael Persinger. A variant is the "Earth Lights" hypothesis described by Paul Devereux.

Something seen in the sky (or on the land, or expceptionally in the water, but thought capable of flight) which the witness could not identify and thought sufficently strange to report to either an offical or unoffical investigating body.

These are often talked about in books, Publications and on this discussion group. Arcturus Members of Confederations of Humans Aryans (Blondes) Blond Nordic Humanoids who work with the greys. Said to be captured by the Reptoids and also have implants. They are said to have a tendency to switch their loyalties between the Reptoids and the Confederations of Humans. Blues (Star Warriors) The Blues are said to have translucent skin, large almond shaped eyes and small of stature. The main issue of their teaching was PURSUE YOUR PASSION, follow your own way, do your own thing, don't be pressured into being anything but what and who you are. The information about the Blues comes from Robert Morningsky a Hopi/Apache dancer. According to Morningsky the first alien contact started about 1947 - 1948 with the Greys contacting the U.S. Government to form a treaty with them. Another body of Aliens arrived, called the Blues. The Blues advised the government not to deal with the greys saying it would only lead to disaster. They told the U.S. to follow your own path. They said they would would teach with peace and harmony if men would disarm and listen. The military said no deal. So they left, but a few decided to remain and stayed in Northern Mexico and Arizona and made a treaty with the Hopi Indians. These Aliens are known by the Hopi as Star Warriors. The greys started monitoring the Blues. So the Blues had to flee the reservation and go into hiding, a few of the Elders went with them. The Hopi legend is that there were two races, the children of the feather who came from the skies, and the children of the reptile who came from under the earth. The children of the reptile chased the Hopi Indians out of the earth, these evil under-grounders were also called two hearts. Also See: American Indian Magic by Brad Steiger Confederation of Humans An organization of alien groups born out of positive energy, that are helping the human race along and desire to protect them. Includes: Vega, Arcturus, Sirius, Pleiades and other humanoids. Greys This is the most commonly identified alien race in UFOlogy. Their are many different views, stories and theories regarding them ranging from the different New Age views to the different Scientific, and conspiracy views. Greys as presented by the Scientific Community: The Greys are the most commonly described race by abduction victims. In this view they are considered a race with an unknown motives, and agendas. They seem to be abducting, studying, testing and using various individuals for their one unclear reasons. [See: Abductions and Current Theories] Greys as presented by the New Age Movement: In the new age movement the Greys are often associated as an evil race, or a race with bad energy. They are often associated with many other races, such as the Reptoids and their motives are known. Greys as presented by Different Conspiracy Theories The different conspiracy theories are often a mix of the scientific and new age views. The standard conspiracy base states that the Greys crashed one or more of their space ships and they were found by the U.S. Government. The Government them makes a secret treaty with the Greys allowing them to abduct humans in exchange for their technology. The conspiracy theories often end with the Greys not keeping their part of the deal. [I will try and include some of the different conspiracy theories when I have more time to research them in detail] Their are descriptions of several types of Greys: they are all humanoid in appearance, a head, main body, two arms, hands, legs, and feet. 1: The most commonly seen grey is around two to four feet tall, very slender and delicate looking, small beings and light weight, extremely penetrating black slanted eyes with no pupils, almost vestigial mouth and nose, a very large head with a pointed chin. The skin color varies from dark grey to light grey, tan to tanish grey, white to pale white. They have no hair on their bodies. 2: Another commonly seen Grey is described similarly as above, except their usually six inches taller, and seem to give the orders. A variation of this same described individual is: same as above except eyes like big black buttons and are rounded. 3: Another type of Grey are the small robot like beings, stocky and little, with smooth rounded hat on top, with dark deep set holes for eyes and a round O shaped mouth, square breastplate with concentric circles on it, smell like burnt match heads, mushroom grey skin. These Greys are often said to act like security guards. Other variations are described as Reptilian like with claws an preying mantis like. There have also been many report of cross breeds that are not exactly human and not exactly Greys. Orion Empire (Orion forces) Those alien groups born out of negative energy such as the Reptoids and the grays. [If this is wrong someone please correct me, I'll do more research on this later] Pleiadians The Pleiadians are a collective of extraterrestrials from the star system Pleiades. They are also from various times in our future, starting from 500 years from now to millions of years from now. The Pleiadian culture is ancient and was "seeded" from another universe of love long before Earth was created. They have formed a tremendous society which operates with love, with ideas and ideals that we are yet unfamiliar with. The Pleiadians started a project to contact and inspire earth humans to take back their power and create a better reality for themselves. They are here as ambassadors from another universe to help Earth through her transition from the third dimension to the fourth dimension and to assist each of us in our personal endeavors of awakening, remembering and knowing. As this project has become more successful, more ETs have joined the group, some from other systems. The group later changed its name from Pleiadians to the Pleiadians Plus. The Pleiadians say that their reasons for contacting us is that there is a chance of tyranny in the future and they are coming back to inspire us as much as possible so we will take charge of creating our own reality and change the future. They teach a very empowering form of personal and social metaphysics, with love and clarity. The Pleiadians speak as a collective and there are no individuals identified. They do not appear in physical form although they say they can. They say it is safer to come through the channel, and it does not attract as much attention. 3.07 Sirius Members of Confederations of Humans [will do more research later] Main Source: A Cosmic Awareness Channel from "Revelations of Awareness" Issue # 371 Reptoids A reptilian race from Draco bent on conquest, They are said to be controling the greys by means of an implant, the same one that the gray are implanting into humans. They are also said to be the master minds behind the abduction plans. Their master plan involves using the newly created 'Half-breeds' with implants to defeat the Confederations of Humans. The Reptoids also use humans as food. Vega Members of Confederations of Humans Abductions and Current Theories About Abductions There are many people who believe they have been abducted by UFOnauts. These abduction victims often experience memory loss and "missing time". some of them have been able to recall their abductions from memory and others have recalled their abductions by the aid of hypnosis. Often these encounters involve being taken aboard an alien craft and examined by the UFOnauts and put through a variety of physical and mental procedures. Then the individuals are returned. Many of the abduction victims has shown signs of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Some of the major researchers who have studied the abduction field include Budd Hopkins, David Jacobs, Leo Sprinkle, John Mach, Philip Klass, John Spencer and Jenny Randles. There are several groups with distinct opinions. The dyed-in-the-wool Skeptics, who who don't believe it. Others who are passing no verdict, but are still examining the evidence. Those who believe due to the similarities of the abduction testimonies. Those who claim to have information through means such as channeling. Those who claim to have had first-person experiences, with automatic conscious recall. Those who claim to have had first-person experiences, with recall under hypnotic regression. The opinions of some skeptics such as Klass believe that the hypnotists themselves are leading the abduction victims unknowingly into believing that they have had an abduction experience. The skeptics believe that the the media has been saturated so much with the abduction material that when people having nightmares or people who believe that they have experienced the "missing time" are put under hypnosis, they draw upon what they have seen in the media to fulfill the expectations of the hypnotist and causes themselves to be put trough the trauma for that reason. They say the nightmares are often caused by the sleeping disorder narcolepsy, and the "missing time" is not an uncommon experience and is caused when the mind is preoccupied by other matters. They often give the advice to go to clinical doctors, and not to contact an abductionist. Other researchers such as Jacobs and Hopkins believe that there is something physical causing the abduction experiences. Hobkins has stated that he believes that the abduction are real and that the recounts of the abductions are to similar to each other to be anything but the truth. Jacobs takes a slightly different approach, he has been categorizing all the accounts and trying to find patterns in the testimonies. Through this method he come up with new more indepth theories regarding the abductions. The Channelers believe that the abductions are part of a battle between good energy forces and evil energy forces. There are many people who believe they have had personal experiences with Alien contacts or abductions. Many decline to discuss their experiences, due to attacks by skeptics. There has been possible material evidence of UFOs or Alien contacts. There are abundant material traces, even excepting those confiscated by the military. Material traces include burned grass and earth where UFOs have landed, UFOs shown on radar tapes, UFOs on film and in photos. Bodily traces on abductees include scoop-marks in the flesh, incisions, burns, apparent radiation exposure, bruises, inflammation, etc. Whether any of these is considered *evidential*, however, is a subjective value call.
