Dear Jakes, Cathy, List:

There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever, none, nada, zilch,
that four million Americans have been abducted. There is not even
a credible suggestion of same. It is a complete, total and utter
fiction. (You see, now, Greg et al, why you ought to weigh in on
the negative side on occasion.)

That number comes from something known as the Roper Report, which
is totally without any sort of substantiation whatsoever. It is a
disservice to you personally to give it more than the time of
day, and a greater disservice to the public at large to pass it
around as if it had any meaning at all, let alone as if it were
somehow proved. The number is a total charade and completely
without foundation.

If every ufologist in the world huffed and puffed to their
hearts' content, and then huffed and puffed some more, they might
be able to come up with a thousand abduction cases -- arguably
half of which have never been investigated in any detail or depth
whatsoever, if investigated at all. That is, they've simply been
taken at face value.

To argue, suggest, or believe otherwise is to seriously delude
yourself. When it comes to the number four million, and the
phrase "one in forty" in regard to abductions, be aware that they
are one and the same, and equally and wholly without significance
or meaning. Both are chimeras with a capital C, nothing more and
nothing less.

Anyone who says otherwise probably listens to Art Bell in their
underwear and is itching for a fight.
