Hi folks,
Im currently doing research for a pet theory of mine which involves the camparison of Irish legends concerning children being taken by the Fai and replaced with so called changelings that were often described as being malformed wizend and frail. My thinking is that this might be a case of abduction and replacement by hybrids. Im wondering if anyone else has noticed or done research on any other cultures which feature similar myths or legends that could be alien activity being taken as something else. Any ideas or comments would be appreciated.

When I eventually write up the results of my research and comparison I will post a link for it here if anyone is interested in the subject.

well it sounds better then saying fairy folk doesnt it anyway just realised I had mistyped that meant to say Fae which makes a bit more sense? There are alot of references in lady gregories books and w.b. yeats collection of folklore to name a few. Of course im in work now but I can certainly post exact references and quotes later if your interested.

okay, i thought you might be refering to a specific group.
I have lady gregories collection, so if you can referance it would be helpful.

i have heard a story of a girl in france that came out of a well claiming she had lived in an underground world, i'll look it up and come back.

just on a side note, i've had the same thought in the past, the opening of ''the coming of the tuath de danaan'' is a pretty compelling start to a legend for anyone interested in ufo's.

''it was in a mist the tuatha de danaan, the people of the god dana, or as some called them, the men of dea, came through the air and the high air to ireland''

is the high air space i wonder.

Hi Sabre: Jacques Vallee has explored this very theory. A must-read for you would be his book "Passport to Magona". I believe it's out-of-print but you can buy used copies on Amazon. He put forth the theory that the Fae and UFO's are the same type of phenomenon and his book explores that topic in depth.
Hope this helps.

Hmm must have a look for that. I knew I cant have been the only person to think along the same lines. Think I will wait till I have finished my researching before reading that book though just so I can form my own conclusions without being biased by another persons work or conclusions. It is a very fascinating subject to look into though especially if you are interested in UFO's or Irish myth and legend.
