Alien Abductions Are Real

No one would have believed in the early years of the 21st century that our world was being watched by intelligences greater than our own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns, *they* observed and studied, the way a man with a microscope might scrutinize the creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency, men went to and fro about the globe, confident of our empire over this world. Yet across the gulf of space, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic regarded our planet with envious eyes and slowly, and surely, drew their plans against us. – The War of the Worlds starring Tom Cruise.

It’s time we accepted alien abductions are real. We now have decades of testimonials. There are too many cases of people experiencing abduction, probing and “lost time” to dismiss it any longer. Just based on sheer numbers, there is a high probability life exists on other planets. There are billions of galaxies. In those galaxies, there are millions of planets spinning around stars similar to our own sun. It’s almost mathematically impossible to suggest that life couldn’t exist on one of those planets.

Some say that the closest star is so far away aliens would need lifetimes of travel time to reach us. Our sun takes about 200 million years to go once around the Milky Way. The nearest star to our sun (Alpha Centauri) is about four light-years away, close to 24 trillion miles. However, we are understanding space travel within our own comprehension. Superior intelligence might look at that distance the way we might look at a plane trip from New York to Tokyo.

Richard Dolan, historian and author of UFOs and the National Security State (Volumes 1 and 2) commented, “From the beginning of our history humanity has gone through a nonstop change of its worldviews. The funny thing is all along the way we were always convinced that now we’ve got it right. So today, now in the 21st century, we talk to scientists who finally admit that yes, it seems to be possible, or even likely, that there is intelligent life somewhere else in the universe. However, it is supposed to be impossible for them to get here, or for us to get there. And really, what this is is simply a lack of imagination.”

Similar Stories

Hundreds of people have reported being abducted, raped, probed, and experimented on by aliens. They all report similar looking vessels. The aliens are commonly described as having small bodies with either a white, green, or gray color. They have big heads, small chins, large eyes, and no ears or very pointed ears. How is it possible that the descriptions are so similar from many different people all over the world over decades?

Under hypnosis, many abductees describe similar stories of being abducted, transported to a ship, and probed or medicated. It seems highly coincidental that the stories share so many similarities. Consider these examples:

Travis Walton

One of the best-known and controversial abduction cases happened in Arizona in the town of Snowflake on November 5, 1975. A man named Travis Walton, who worked as a logger, just finished work and was heading home with other crew in a truck. They worked past sundown and started driving back to town.

They came around a bend in the road to see a light shimmering about 100 feet away. The truck stopped and no one got out but Travis. At first, he was showing off, challenging the light. The light didn’t leave.

He tried to run back. Then a beam of light hit him in the head and chest. His friends panicked and sped off. When they came back, the aliens were gone and Travis was nowhere to be found. The next day, the townspeople looked for clues. The sheriff expected foul play, thinking maybe one of the loggers killed Travis.

A few days later, Travis staggered to a phone booth and called his brother-in-law. He was surprised to find out he was gone so long. He remembered waking up on a table in a hospital room. He was looking at human-like creatures. They had two arms and two legs with “terrifying eyes that look right into you.”

He told the aliens, “Get back!” He started screaming threats and wanted to fight. The aliens backed out of the room. They took Travis to a domed room, a type of large hangar where they could look down at the Earth.

In more than 20 years not one of the other loggers has come forward with a different story. The sheriff said he didn’t think the loggers are lying. He thinks they saw something, but it wasn’t a UFO. Travis responded, “I am defending myself. It happened, that’s all I know.”

In 1978, Travis published The Walton Experience, a book detailing the abduction. In 1993, the book was made into a feature film, Fire in the Sky, starring D.B. Sweeney as Travis Walton.

Betty and Barney Hill

Betty and Barney Hill.

Betty and Barney Hill.

Betty and Barney Hill were regular people from New Hampshire. Betty was a department supervisor in state government and Barney was a Postal Service worker.  They were driving back from vacation in Montréal, Canada to their home in New Hampshire on September 19-20, 1961.

Heading south on Route 3 in the middle of the White Mountains at night, they saw a star in the sky that followed them down the road. They stopped and Barney got out of the car to get a better look through his binoculars. He saw red, amber and green lights. He jumped back in the car and sped away.

When they got back to their home in Portsmouth they noticed it took 2 hours longer than normal. Soon afterward Betty was having constant nightmares of being medically examined in a flying saucer. A prominent Boston psychologist, Dr. Benjamin Simon, used hypnosis to help them recover memories.

Years later they were covered in Look magazine. Their story was adapted into a 1966 book called The Interrupted Journey and a 1975 TV movie, The UFO Incident.

Video Documentation

The producers of a 1996 TV show called The Paranormal Borderline received an anonymous package from a viewer. The sender said it showed a factory worker who had been abducted by aliens.

The tape showed the monitor of a security system at a plant. The screen consisted of four different views of various security cameras. On the video, a worker walks right to left through a gate. There is a flash of light and the worker disappears from the screen at 11.16pm. The tape runs until two hours later and the same worker appears in another flash of light. He’s in the fetal position, vomiting. Then he gets up and staggers out of frame. Shortly after this episode, he quit his job and moved away.

The producers of the TV show spoke with an expert named Yvonne Smith, a famous hypnotherapist and UFO researcher. “I work with many people who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder,” she said. “Something happened to them…that they don’t maybe quite remember. But, they know they became ill. They know they came back. It was 1 o’clock in the morning and what happened? I just opened the gate when it was 11.15 p.m., and the next thing I remember it is 1 o’clock in the morning and I’m sick to my stomach.”

What happens when they’re gone during the time that is missing? Many people that have been abducted say they’ve been made immobile, taken up to an alien spacecraft, put into an operating room and experimented on.

Yvonne Smith continues, “Sperm is taken, ovum is taken, there’s a variety of experiments and examinations that take place during an abduction. If, during the course of what is happening to them they are given medication, it’s no wonder these people are ill.”


Perhaps the most intriguing possible evidence of alien abductions are implants they have placed in select abductees. One high profile case is representative. Researchers in California, Dr. Roger Leir, and Stephen Colbert, worked on a patient named John Smith (pseudonym). John Smith was a 47-year-old married man with three children. He was a researcher in the materials science field.

Smith has a lifelong history of UFO sightings and ‘missing time’ experiences. On October 28, 2008, he was alone in his house. He went to bed and woke up the next morning around 8 am. When he woke up he noticed a burning feeling in one of his toes. He also found puncture wounds underneath his second toe on his left foot, and a scratch on the right side of the toe.

They removed the object on September 6, 2008. It was very brittle and broke into 12 different pieces during removal. The pieces turned black and red. Within 12 hours of leaving his body, the pieces lined up in their original order, as if trying to reassemble.

Dr. Leir’s official findings determined it was most likely an alien implant. Among other conclusions, Dr. Leir reported, “The extreme differences in the isotopic ratios of the sample elements from the isotopic ratios of elements found on Earth provide strong confirmation that the material is of extraterrestrial origin.”

Fiction or Reality?

Hollywood has produced many movies about alien abduction. The extensive list includes:

  • Fire in the Sky- this is the aforementioned adaptation of Travis Walton’s story.
  • Communion- an independent film starring Christopher Walken based on Whitley Strieber’s book. Was the main character Whitley abducted, or is he suffering from hallucinations?
  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind- the classic Steven Speilberg movie. Along with hundreds of others, Richard Dreyfuss is “called” by aliens.
  • The Fourth Kind- stars Milla Jovovich and is set in Nome, Alaska in 2000. Extraterrestrials abduct local residents who remember their abductions through psychotherapy sessions. Why are so many residents waking at 3.33am?
  • Signs- released in 2002. Mel Gibson discovers crop circles in his Pennsylvania cornfield. Soon he is at the forefront of an alien invasion.
  • War of the Worlds- a 2005 release starring Tom Cruise in the movie adaptation of the H.G. Wells novel. Concentrates more on the destruction of Earth’s population but some unlucky citizens find they are marked for abduction.

This short list is just the tip of the iceberg. There are hundreds of alien abduction or UFO-related titles including A Genesis Found, Aelita, Aliens (and the sequels), Alien Autopsy, Flight of the Navigator, Independence Day, Progeny, Altered, Night Skies, Alien Seed and on and on.

That’s not all. Abduction and UFO-related books are just as popular, and more plentiful, than movies:

  • The Allagash Abductions: Undeniable Evidence of Alien Intervention
  • The Threat: The Secret Agenda- What the Aliens Really Want and How They Plan To Get It
  • Visitors from Space: The Astonishing Story of the Mothman Prophecies
  • Strangers from the Sky
  • The Hard Evidence of Aliens Among Us
  • Chariots of the Gods
  • Beyond Roswell: The Alien Autopsy Film, Area 51, and the U.S. Government Cover-up of UFO’s
  • The Custodians: Beyond Abduction
  • Secret Life: Firsthand, Documented Accounts of UFO Abductions

This is just a sliver of the thousands of books you can find. It’s hard to believe that ALL of these narratives are based on hoaxes or hallucinations.

Modern day “watchers” like to congregate on Bray’s Point, Oregon for meetings. From Bray’s Point, you can see ancient Native American hieroglyphics that depict “lights dancing in the sky” and “visitors.” This was thousands of years ago!  Whether the stories are from ancient civilizations or modern-day Hollywood, the sheer number of abduction and UFO-related stories cannot be dismissed.

Government Cover Up

We now have hundreds of alien abduction reports including highly detailed cases such as the Betty and Barney Hill incident. There is recorded video of people disappearing and reappearing after abductions. In addition, we have a medical leader like Dr. Weir who has performed over 15 alien implant extractions.

While we still lack conclusive physical evidence, the overwhelming number of abduction reports, ‘missing time’ cases and possible alien implants is too significant to dismiss. It’s highly likely we are under long-term surveillance by highly intelligent beings.

“If you are observing the evolution of a planet, and you were looking at it as an experiment that you could quantify, you would try to take samples all along the evolution,” said Nassim Haramein, Director of the Resonance Project Foundation.

The relentless surveillance by aliens is taking its toll on our people. “What is the effect on a person’s life that has had abduction experiences all of their lives?” asked David Jacobs, Ph.D., Historian, Hypnotherapist and author of The Threat. “The effects can be profound on people in ways they don’t even fully understand. It’s a club that nobody wants to belong to.”

Let’s stop the denials and devote the resources necessary to help abductees, and society, cope with alien abduction.

    The problem is………we live in a world where truth does not exist. By human nature we strive for truth that we cant pass on because evidence is always needed, and evidence again by human nature is always distorted…so we will never know

  • Julia says:

    This article is very intriguing! Thanks Ian!

  • Anne Horton says:

    In the late 70’s in Boynton beach, Fl, I saw a solid, metal, oval shaped object with lights on the bottom of it, about the size of a blimp, hovering in the air approx 30-40 feet above the street I was driving on. I could hear no sound… As I approached it, I was trying to determine if it was the good year blimp, a balloon, an advertisement, etc…

    The car in front of me and the car behind me all rolled to a stop and I looked up at it. I had to come to a complete stop to determine that it was in fact not moving. I thought, “I know my life is not going very well right now, but I certainly don’t want beamed up.”

    All cars took off. I sped fast to pick up my co worker and returned with her to the spot within 3-5 minutes. Gone. Nowhere in sight, no stream of smoke, no clouds. She thought I was lying. I dropped it. To this day I remember every detail. Even that I honked my horn for her to hurry into the car and I was afraid she would be mad because she was carrying her shoes and I was probably going to make her pantyhose run but I figured she would forgive me once I showed her the object.

    Good article! But you might consider that these
    “aliens” are from earth rather than distant stars. I believe that there is evidence (alien autopsy) that these creatures are an evolved ancient civilization of monotremes. Our government knows that humans wouldn’t tolerate
    random abduction. If they knew for sure that it was taking place, they would demand that the government do something about it. Since governments can’t stop the abductions, they ignore them. They don’t have a clue what to do
    about this situation. What would you do ?
    We share the planet with other civilized beings
    and they treat us like we treat lab animals.
    I think this reality would make most folks a little uncomfortable; don’t you?

    Was this the Royal Navy? How was the radar recorded? My father has done quite a lot of bioelectromagnetic research and was wondering.

  • Barry Carroll says:

    During the late 70’s I was at sea with the Navy and we had a very strange blip which appeared on our Long distance bedstead radar, the blip was oval in shape close to the sea according to radar 100 KM’s away. what ever it was remained stationary whilst small dots seemed to come out of the blip and seem to go into the big oval the contact was held for approximately one hour as we altered course to investigate. we had two other naval ships with us who also had the long distance radar system. designed and built in South Africa. they also recorded the sighting. after observing for 20 minutes as we steamed towards the blip, when it suddenly dissappeard. The recordings were removed from our ship and the other two and told that it never happened we must have been dreaming.
    Makes you think?

    Why are no comments showing up here? Odd.
    Maybe the aliens erased them.
