While I also believe that the beings involved in abductions are
non- corporeal, I think dragging in such terminology as "spirit
world" does not really help us in understanding what is

Science depends on the precise use of mutually understood
terminology, terminology that carries clear definitions. Mr.
Treurniet needs to define his terms. Just what does he mean by
"spirit world"? The realm of "ghosties and ghoulies and long
leggity beasties"? Some realm that exists only in our minds? Or
is he talking about some parallel reality?

When he says, "... the physical evidence associated with some
abductions suggests that happenings in the spirit world can
manifest in the physical world", just exactly what is he talking
about? What physical evidence? Implants? Scoop marks?

While an interesting read, I'd file his essay under Modern Myths.
