Alien abductions remain in
the popular media for a few simple reasons:
One specific case from Australia
highlights many facets of the alien abduction experience, from strange
implants to the lifelong UFO fanaticism.
The experiences are all very
similar, from across the globe.
UFO "researchers" do not include the variations on this theme (some people
report very different-looking aliens, etc.).
The abductions have been
happening for centuries. UFO "researchers" frequently jump to the automatic
conclusion that the similar experiences point to the same experiences,
rather than alien abductions being the same neurological response to stimuli
as these earlier "abductions."
"You haven't proved us wrong!"
UFO "researchers" seem to forget that the burden of proof is on the pro
side. Those who claim that a certain scientific law is factual must prove
it; those who claim that this law is not factual do not need to prove anything.
Carol is in her 50's,
and an aware and sensible lady. She is very well read in the field of Ufology
because of her life long association and connection with the Aliens.
She knew she was pregnant,
she had all the symptoms, and a girl instinctively knows anyway. She made
all of the arrangements, paid her money and went to see the doctor for
the operation. The doctor, after examining Carol had some unexplainable
news to tell her. She was not pregnant, there was no fetus.
Carol knew she was pregnant.
She said that just before the abortion was due to be undertaken, "they"
returned and removed the fetus from her.
What nobody seems to mention
is a certain thing called an "hysterical pregnancy," which comes with all
of the symptoms of pregnancy but is not a true pregnancy. The scientific
grounding of such a theory is well-established, whereas aliens stealing
hybrid fetuses is not.
She went to see her local
family doctor. She had explained to him the real reasons why she was ill,
and of her connection with Alien beings and what they had done to her.
This doctor did not want to hear about her story. He would talk about anything
else, but not of the Alien contacts and implant.
This strikes me as the normal
reaction a doctor would have to someone who told them that their diagnosis
was wrong and that they were under the thumb of alien invaders.
The article next claims that
Carol was hospitalized and heavily drugged (by human doctors), practically
ignored by the hospital staff. She was discovered out of her bed without
the television on her legs, cutting off her circulation.
The doctor that found
her in this condition stated that because of the condition of her leg,
she must have been in that position for at least 36 hours.
This is obviously an attempt
to link this event to the so-called "missing time phenomenon" that abductees
commonly experience. This specific case deviates from that because usually
the person is physically taken to the ship. If aliens truly manipulated
time so that it did not pass for them and Carol, then they must have left
the TV on her legs. Aliens do a lot of strange things, but I do not know
of a single case where they maliciously tortured an unconcious woman and
left the evidence for all to see.
I would speculate that this
was a misdiagnosis on the part of the doctor. It is very possible that
Carol is mentally unstable and did this to herself, or that she
is a somnabulist and did this to herself unintentionally. From what
I know of the phenomenon of alien abduction, a person prone to sleeping
disorders is also prone to alien abductions. Perhaps there is a link between
people with sleeping disorders and the physiological/neurochemical activities
of those prone to fantasy and/or delusion. I am not a specialist in these
matters, but any rational explanation would be an improvement.
Her constant vigil with
local medical people saw arrangements made to have another ' cat scan ',
this time on the most sophisticated machine available in Australia. The
waiting list for patients is 18 months for this hi-tech cat scan, Carol
only had to wait six weeks, she was obviously seen as a priority.
Again, I am not a specialist,
but strange headaches are possible symptoms of a brain tumor. I believe
that this is enough for a high priority, though I might be wrong.
Upon completion, Carol
asked doctors for the results, and was refused a discussion on the matter.
Carol decided to act alone and walked into the x-ray viewing room. A private
"Doctors Only" area. Her x-rays were lined up on the viewing light, and
she had a quick look at them before being quickly ushered out of the room
and told " you should not be in here ". Carol told the doctor that she
had seen enough anyway. She could see the close ups of the implant in her
The rational assumption is
that there was no implant in her head and that people were simply
not allowed in a "Doctor's Only" room, especially potentially psychotic
people. She does not even know for sure that they were even her
CAT images. She has no way of knowing what things look like through a CAT
scan (or MRI, whichever the case). It is nowhere stated in the article
that she is a physician, or even a CAT technician or nurse. Things look
very strange through the "lens" of a CAT scan. There are many variables
within a human body that could throw anyone but a physician off.
How could she possibly know that there was an implant in her head, and
how many things within her body would "look" like an implant to her? She
obviously was expecting to see an implant.
The cover up has begun.
To this day Carols persistent request and demands for the results of this
x-ray treatment have been futile. Doctors in Brisbane, and her local G.P.
have all refused to talk to Carol about the results. " It is almost as
if they have been advised to withhold the information from me" Stated Carol.
" They now have proof that Alien implants are real, and do not want to
let us know " said Carol.
There are many rational explanations
for her difficulty with getting her results. Of course, it might be a government
coverup. But if the implants are visible in the "x-ray CAT scans [sic]"
on the web page (you can see these photos here)
then why were they not suppressed by evil Men in Black?
Alien abduction cases abound.
This is just one. Some are far more detailed and claim many more astounding
things. I chose this one because I thought it was more evident of the thought
processes of "abductees." It is my opinion that many of these abductees
are already convinced that they are being abducted and then seek evidence
to support it. More junk, reactionary science.
