I understand your view point put I think you are examining it backwards or at least that is how I read your post.
Most abductions in my humble opinion are miss identified as alien in origin, like the UFO observations there is something there that should be
objectively examined but isn't so that is the only connection I'm willing to agree about the two phenomena that is undeniable. That abductions
experiences are occur and the UFOs exist.
Now on the subject of abductions most of the reports can simply be hallucinations or other types of delusion (even shared) and considering that
psychology has only got to work in the last 100 years, we can now explain some events (even if the subject believes otherwise). This of course seems
to go in parallel with historical reports of spiritual encounters, interventions and miracles and is indisputable connected to cultural background
(including faith). Separating real abductions will always be extremely hard, one thing that people should take in consideration is that to the subject
(if not an hoax) the experience is indeed real.
Note also that Asia has had an extreme advantage in the understanding of consciousness and other altered states, something that only took root in the
west from 1700 forward (taking in consideration the effect of the Dark age and Christianity), like psychoactive compounds and hypnotism and revivalism
of other shamanic knowledge that to a large degree had special hindrance in other civilizations.
The only way to prove an abduction would be physical evidence or verifiable transmission of new information during the abduction or verification of
other paranormal event. So far the only thing that support the abduction phenomena is the shared similitude and I believe that it is mostly due to
Now there is a recent trend to mix religion with the alien subject, mostly pushed by the media as also a renewed interest in the paranormal and
spiritual world. This is in my view a predatory marketing strategy, a mix of social engineering and business interests.
Most of the western world is becoming disenfranchised from organized religions and since we are biologically driven to believe in a divine power
(scientifically proven) there are forces interested in taking advantage of this or even in preventing the expansion of other faiths.
