Lest you misconstrue my words Mr. Treurniet, I did not imply
that there was nothing to alien abduction. I merely stated that
is a well known fact, something called confabulation. Several
abduction researchers have commented on this with regard to
alien abduction.

Hopkins and Jacobs have both touched on this several times, that
is the difficulty in determining which part of the narratives
are true and which parts are false.

For example, Jacobs believes talk about the aliens' faces being
blurred or that the abductee is somehow prevented from seeing
the faces is simply not true and he feels that if you push
through with hypnosis that this has arisen in the mind of the
abductee and was not apart of the experience.

This is but one small example and confabulation can become quite
complex in detail with regards to other examples. So what I was
cautioning against is the mere acceptance of abductee narratives
at face value. Parts of the experience may be real and parts may
be fantasy invented by the abductee and included in the
narrative.
