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

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

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.
