If people don't ask questions and simply accept the >facts blindly, we'll never get to the truth about anything. Yes, asking questions is important. What I have noted is that no one has asked the questions that a skilled researcher would ask. There are many pieces of information - in this case and the photographs as presented on my web site - that no one has even mentioned. Those who know what they are looking at would be asking the necessary questions by now. A good researcher would take note of these aspects not to debunk or ridicule but simply to inquire and file in their data base for comparisons with other cases. There is no way to prove a case real or false simply by reading the details on a web site and viewing scanned versions of photographs. >What I did say however, was the neighbour was called >in specifically to take photos of this encounter and the glass >door was left closed. Whoa. That is not what happened. The neighbor was not called in to specifically take photos. The neighbor was called to come help - if she could - since by that time the family thought maybe the beings resembled "aliens" more than "demons" and the only person they knew who studied phenomena was their neighbor. The neighbor, "Jill", brought her camera as an after thought in case she might catch something on film - as she had been trying to do in her own encounters. The door was _not_ "left closed" deliberately, "Jill" arrived and nervously started snapping pictures as soon as she arrived because "Cathy" was pointing to the back yard and "Jill" just started snapping pictures. A few minutes later, "Jill" and "Cathy's" sister gained enough courage to go into the back yard together to see if they could see anything in the dark. "Jill" also snapped pictures while in the back yard and odd images did show up such as two bright red lights about a foot above the ground as well as other images that have yet to be analyzed and studied. Though neither "Jill" nor "Cathy's" sister saw anything while in the yard, "Cathy" - who remained in the house - could see a being standing by the swing set that would move away every time "Jill" and the sister approached it. Now, allowing the circumstances described above and the information in the article to be possible - for just a moment - think of the implications contained in the information. There are several bits of information that may have come together to create a unique situation in which these images became visible in the photographs. As I said before, there are more details to this case yet to be presented. But since no one seems interested enough to ask pertinent questions or is too busy criticizing the state of the sliding glass door, I will share the rest at a later date through another median. There is a wealth of information in this case if one stops to analyze the data rather than spending more time debating why the witnesses did or did not open the sliding glass door. These were real people experiencing real fear in the face of unknowns they could not explain. I met and talked with the witnesses - in person - so I remember the terror in their voices and the shock they experienced and continue to experience. Until I investigated this case, I wasn't sure if abductions were really happening and I certainly _did not_ believe the stories about "reptilian" beings. In fact, I don't think I will ever totally accept the idea of "reptilian" beings abducting people until I see one in conscious, waking awareness up close and in person (not something I really care to do). For now, it's just too hard for me to stretch my paradigms that far. But I know something happened to those witnesses on the nights in question and whatever it was, it really happened. Over the years since learning of this case, I have spent many hours debating in my own mind whether it was real or not. There were events that occurred while I was investigating the case that are extremely hard for me to accept even though I experienced them myself. I don't know how to explain what it feels like to be empirically oriented and come face-to-face with phenomena that defies explanation. I am basically the type who believes if you can't put something under a microscope and measure it, then it does not exist. Yet I cannot deny the phenomena I and others have personally witnessed. I know how hard it is for people to accept the phenomena that surrounds us especially if you don't see it or experience it in person. How do you explain a reality we have been programmed to deny since the early '50's? How do you remain a "healthy skeptic" yet open minded enough to consider all possibilities? It's a difficult balance. Amy Home Page: "http://TheVanguard.tripod.com"
