I agree with what he's saying it does seem that there is a need
for a newsletter that reports the facts. However, forums like
this do a pretty good job of filling the slot.

I think he's right but shouldn't throw the baby out with the
bath water. Some of these "dubious testimonies" are really not
that dubious. I think the answers are there in plan sight and by
that I mean the testimonies of credible abductees.

He's right on target! An intelligent open mind does need to
understand reality. At least as well as our minds are capable of
knowing it's true nature. However, I respectfully disagree with
his statement on our progress.

There has been a great deal of research in the last ten years
that has turned some lights on. I am specifically talking
abduction related work. Take a look at authors like Raymond
Fowler (Watchers), David M. Jacobs, Ph.D. (The Threat), and Jim
Sparks (Keepers). I am disappointed that we don't have full
disclosure. But the more I learn about the nature of this the
more I begin to realize many humans could not handle the truth.
