Well I'm new here, I think I vaguely recall visiting this site in the last couple of years a couple of times, but just in passing. Now I'm here to
stay. There is some great stuff here, and from the looks of it, some very bright folks. I hope I can contribute or at least interact in the future
here, I hope my stay is a long one. Question for you folks:
Is hypnotic regression bunk? I have a lingering mistrust of psychiatrists and those of that ilk in general, and I really don't know much about
regression. I find it hard to believe anyone can just speak some words to me, and I'll drift off into a peaceful slumber, where I will suddenly
recall things I couldn't remember in my concious state. I only ask because of an experience when I was very young, that I barely recall, and if
there was any way to see if there was any more to it, I'd like to find out. It is UFO related, and there probably is nothing there, but I'd like to
find out, if possible, if there is more.
For future reference on these boards, in case you run into me:
I do believe that there is alien visitation. Some UFOs are imo, indeed vehicles not of terrestrial orgin.
I think that a LOT of the sightings, a LOT of the abduction cases, and pretty much all of the more out-in-left-field theories are bunk. Bases where
lizards eat us? No.. I don't think so. I think many of the cases of abduction are fabricated.
I am at odds against those who fabricate these sorts of stories really, I think it detracts from serious study. As long as these sorts of reports
feed the media, the government and media are going to have little trouble maintaining an air of "See how ridiculous this all is?"
My favorite researcher by far, is Stanton Friedman. He mirrors my own mindset as far as this sort of stuff goes. He does not mindlessly take anyting
he hears for granted. He won't acknowledge that something may be true, until it can receive serious study. I love his books, and how he has
approached the UFO issue over the last 20 + years.
I have never witnessed a UFO myself as far as I know (except for the question regarding regression, that was a very odd experience, that I'll share
if anyone cares to hear it). If I saw a dot on the horizon, I would be excited, but would first assume it was explainable. i.e. I don't jump to
conclusions that just because it is mysterious, means it's paranormal, a ufo, etc.
Ghosthunters is a horrible show. I hope they never make a show about UFOs in the same sort of fashion, it would send study back years.
Anyway, thanks for letting my post my blather on your boards, and I hope to have a long, happy, slightly controversial stay here!
