At what age do abductions tend to start?
Anyway, they say it started off one day the boy was taking a nap and his mom fell asleep on the couch. She was startled awake by the sound of an interior door opening in the hallway. Her son sleeps in a twin bed and has never (before or since) crwaled out of bed. He usually calls for her to come and get him. As she is getting off the couch and worrying about what is in the hall, her son comes around the corner. He is still very sleepy and says "I dont want to go. I want you to come with me next time". She asks him "go where?" and he points up.
Now I know the boy was asleep and it was probably a dream. Yet it didn't stop there. He now will wake up in the night crying uncontrollably and just as quick will fall back asleep. Often he asks for a drink of water and just downs a full glass. Another weird thing is that he hates to look at anything that focuses on an animals eyes. Especially cats eyes. They say that this just started a day or so after the fist incident. In all, it has been about 3 weeks.
I know it is probably just a phase but I still cant help but feel really creeped out about it. If someone has any insight I would love to know. I am being "that paranoid whacko guy" for thinking that is might be something more, right?
The psychological issues (very normal issues) that lead people to think that they are abducted can start at any time. I've been having sleep paralysis for years. I actually had a vivid nightmare last night - my wife saved me!
I didn't say sleep paralysis explains all of them. Others can be explained by false memories, childhood abuse, over-zealous therapists leading the patient, hoaxers. There are no cases that can not be explained in these terms.
Until someone comes back with true knowledge of something unknown to humans, or an artifact of some kind, there's nothing that proves to me they are occurring. I agree with Michio Kaku, one of the few mainstream scientists that thinks it's possible that aliens are visiting us (I can't say I totally agree with him on that), he says that if abductees want us to believe them they should grab something. I'm not saying I'm right, but it makes the most sense to me that abductions are not real. They are all in the abductee's head. However, if there's a case where there's hard evidence, please show it to me - and I'm not talking about implants - that's garbage as well. None of the examined implants have shown to be made of anything that is not available on Earth.
Watch what Kaku says around 7:16:
The witnesses are lying (Unlikely imo but possible. Scoffers never want to conclude this for whatever odd reason. They'd rather dream up elaborate and often silly scenarios) or the events happened as they say they did.
Or some other explanation entirely that does not involve aliens abducting someone. Regardless of what they say, there is no actual physical proof that they were abducted by aliens. Show me that and you will convince me otherwise.
Never said there was physical proof. If there was we would have the benefit of not having to think about it at all. The point is that every explanation offered so far for these incidents (Except, as I pointed out before, outright lying) is EASILY discountable. And I don't know about others but I've never asked you to accept that alien abductions are a certain fact. The only point I've tried to make is that a handful of unexplainable cases make it a possibility.
Sure, I can accept that point of view. For the record though - I do not for a second think that anyone on this planet has been abducted by aliens. Once it's proven though, you can tell me "I told you so!"
I very much doubt it will ever be "proven." We lack the ability to prove it. Science was designed to study bacteria, plastic, molecules, grass...i.e.: things that lack the ability to intelligently avoid study. In other words, if you want to look at a mushroom under a microscope you can. It has no ability to crawl away nor is it even aware that it is being studied. The UFO enigma falls outside the scope of science. It's an investigative problem. Perry Mason is needed, not Poindexter the scientist. If Perry is successful THEN Poindexter can take over. But sadly, I don't think Perry is up to the task.
