I just came back from New York City.  While I was there I spent
an evening with Budd Hopkins and Greg Sandow.  While we each have
our own different perspective on the abduction phenomenon, one
thing we did agree on is that the abductors have their own
agenda, that this agenda is in their interests and not ours, and
that they can not be trusted.

Prophets (most would be called abductees or experiencers today)
have been shown apocalyptic visions for thousands of years.  Each
one is usually convinced that this is going to happen in his/her
lifetime. They have all been wrong.

I am not an eschatologist.  I do not think that armageddon is
coming, nor an apocalypse.  I think good old mother earth will
continue around the sun, just as she has for many millennia, the
seasons will come and go, men will be born and die, and nothing
much will change.Hopefully we will all become a bit more
enlightened as time passes.

I regard end of the world preaching as useless, and perhaps
dangerous, nonsense.

I think that Jacques Vallee was on target when he called our
"visitors" Messengers of Deception.  That's precisely what they
are. They are uninvited interlopers who have no respect for us,
and certainly do not regard us as creatures with basic,
inviolable rights.  They treat us as property.

I think it is time for us to open our eyes and fight back.


P.S. Love the Dame Edna quote!!
