The abduction phenomenon has been around for some time, 1951 in
the 'modern' era and further back if anecdotal accounts are to
be trusted.

One can't dismiss the 'experiences' of people like the Hills, or
in the UFO circle here, people like John Velez and Will Bueche.

These are not insane people, nor hoaxers, nor persons inclined
to add material to their experience which isn't there in the
first place.

When Velez and Bueche say they had an "experience," one has to
accept that what happened to them had some tangibility.

I don't know what "abductions" are, but Velez and Bueche have
some idea, but most people are so quick to dismiss such accounts
that I imagine they won't (or can't) explain it exactly to
skeptics or persons who seem to be calling them liars, or nuts.

Something has happened to credible and decent, intelligent
people. We should try to find out what it was.....
