FWIW, potentially relevant extract from disputed authenticity MJ12 SOM1-01 (could be disinfo): These entities are humanoid and might be mistaken for human beings of the Oriental race if seen from a distance. They are bipedal, 3-5 feet 4 inches in height and weigh 50-100 pounds…The hands are small, with four long digits but no opposite thumb. the outside digit is jointed in a manner as to be nearly opposable, and there is no webbing between the fingers as in humans.
Typically, Greys are described as being approx. 1-1.2m (3.5-4ft) tall, with a weight of approx. 40 pounds. Grey (sometimes blue-grey / green-grey) skin. Their arms often reach down to their knees, and accounts give them three digits and a thumb on each hand.
They are bi-pedal, 3 feet 5 inches - 4 feet 2 inches in height and weigh 25-50 pounds. The arms are long in proportion to the legs, and the hands have three long, tapering fingers and a thumb which is nearly as long as the fingers. The second finger is thicker than the others, but not as long as the index finger.
Grays can be found from one foot to even seven foot. Some have mushroom-white skin, others with brown and even others with black skin… grays with four fingers, others with three or four fingers and another finger positioned where the human thumb would be and there even those whose finger end with suction-cup-like tips.
Smith described (to his wife) the dead occupants as having been approximately 4.5 to 5 feet in height, grayish blue tint to the skin, large eyes, small slit for a mouth and four long fingers with no thumbs
"It was a 4ft human-shaped figure with arms, bizarre-looking four-fingered hands - I didn't see a thumb didn't see a thumb…
The evolution of the opposable or prehensile thumb is usually associated with Homo habilis, the forerunner of Homo sapiens. This, however, is the suggested result of evolution from Homo erectus (around 1 mya) via a series of intermediate anthropoid stages, and is therefore a much more complicated link…The thumb, unlike other fingers, is opposable, in that it is the only digit on the human hand which is able to oppose or turn back against the other four fingers, and thus enables the hand to refine its grip to hold objects which it would be unable to do otherwise. The opposable thumb has helped the human species develop more accurate fine motor skills. It is also thought to have directly led to the development of tools, not just in humans or their evolutionary ancestors, but other primates as well. The opposable thumb ensured that important human functions such as writing were possible. The thumb, in conjunction with the other fingers make humans and other species with similar hands some of the most dexterous in the world.
Without the opposable thumb, human beings might never have attained the highly civilized, sophisticated, and technological lifestyles that many of them enjoy today.
The capacity to grip implements using an "opposable thumb", shared by no other creature in the world, has acquired a new significance thousands of years after it gave mankind mastery of the planet, scientists have found… The feature said to distinguish us from t he apes is now used to mark the slickest performers among the young from their sluggish peers. Research studies on people aged under-25 in nine cities around the world has shown that among the digits, the thumb is primus inter pares.
Nice find, I have not heard this many times, good work finding so many quotes.
For those that don't believe demons exist I can't convince you with a few words so it's not worth trying, but try to expand your supposed open mind. I'm talking about evil beings that are probably interdimensional whose main goal is to drag you down in any way they can.
My opinion on this subject I'm sure is WAY OUT THERE compared to many people on this forum but it's not gonna stop me from posting.
greys are reported as one of the oldest races, the scientific nerds of the universe, and are the cloning masters. Since they had reached a certain development stage already, they probably cloned away their thumbs.
their fingers may be very capable, being long and possibly jointed differently than ours.
I cant get a full memory back, and am apprehensive of attempting hypnosis, dont know if the reports of their hands are accurate or not. Absolutely not sure I want to see their hands moving around me, sorry, have a feeling thats a medical procedure room. Not for me.
Does that sound like a machine, an impassive being, following a grim agenda, or the work of a contrived, conscious species painfully aware of its status as a subjugated, and owned, race? I should point out that this thread is merely speculative. I have no definitive proof or answers to confirm or support the concepts contained herein.

Its something I've wondered about myself, because in our evolution thumbs are what separates man from the animal kingdom and allowed our advancement.
With greys, the cloning seems the most likely because the do interface with their advanced psi abilities with their equipment, and they're specialized, there are tasks that they alone do, compared to other species. I don't know for sure that they don't have something there for a thumb, however if they don't then the length of their fingers, and the perhaps more joints, like they would be different.
