Hello Jason I beg to differ - most of the accounts of sulphur-smells I've read come from modern CE reports from ordinary folk in UK or USA with (apparently) no religious or demonic beliefs - just the recognition of a smell of burnt cardboard, cabbage or bad eggs etc. (Seem to recall a web-page which collated many such reports). And your ideas of possible visitors are stereotypical, like most sci-fi which envisages all `alien' science to be more or less like ours. That's a fairly obvious fallacy - the robot or machine intelligence seems a very wasteful and inefficent operator. It's much more efficient - in terms of power, volume and response times, to make an organic operator with its instructions packed into DNA. Therefore, as a `manufactured' organic, it will have the molecular structure most convenient for the manufacturer. I.e maybe silicon and sulphur. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
