Several researchers think the abduction phenomenon started about 100 years ago. They think so because it is an inter-generational phenomenon, and they
know of cases of abductees who were born at around that period.
If it had begun much before, much more people would be abducted than the assumed 1% or so. If abductions had begun in the 16th century for instance,
we would all be abductees already.
It may have begun before 1900, but not much, because it is widespread accross the entire population, not just a few places where many are
As for the phenomenon taking monmentum, it is inter-generational, so the number of abductees increases with the spread of the genes of the
Now, whether there are more and more abductions -hybrids also- performed, I don't think that researchers have any definite opinion on that.
Some calculations have been done that say that we will all be abductees within 6-7 generations. This is about 150 years. This raises question about
the theory that the aliens are here to help us while remaining unseen. The Earth will most probably have undergone its mass extinction before that, or
the mass extinction will be unstoppable by 2150. 150 years is much too slow if they want to have a real impact through a secret genetic manipulation
of the human population.
