Most people are familiar with the story of Jacob wrestling with the angel.

I propose that the wolves have given us a misguided interpretation here. This was not a physical wrestling match.

This is a story of a human and an angel (alien) sitting down at the negotiating table. "Wrestling" is a eupheumism for the discourse of compromise.

A covenant (contract) was agreed upon and is evidenced in the metaphor of Jacob being struck on his thigh.

'Thigh' is a metaphor for reproductive organs as well as being symbolic of progeny.

Jacob is known as the father of the Twelve Tribes.

Could it be that Jacob bargained himself over to genetic experimentation upon his children in liason with these angel (aliens)?

Could it be that the physical differences of the various races of people originated from these experiments?

The record of Jacob's livestock chronicles the first genetic experiment on earth. Could it be that he was given this knowledge in exchange for his co-operation?

How are people who are abducted today different from others who are not?

Do they display rare genetic defects or diseases?
Are they superior in intelligence or beauty?

Is there a common denominator among those who have been abducted?

Christopher Bader's scientific study may answer some of your questions:
www.signonsandiego.com...

Christopher Bader was one of those kids who loved tales of the improbable. He grew up to become his own improbable tale:

He's a sociology professor at the conservative and Baptist Baylor University, a Presbyterian who has a particular interest in people who say they are UFO abductees or victims of religion-linked ritual abuse. His study of the two groups was published in a recent issue of the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion.

His paper, published in the peer-reviewed journal, is the fruit of years of tentative contacts with support groups for people who say they've been snatched by aliens or ritually abused. Members of these groups are suspicious of outsiders. Much of his paper details how he gained their trust – and eventually, some information about them.

Eventually, he was able to get 55 of the UFO folks and 51 ritual-abuse survivors to anonymously fill out forms about their ages, education and other demographic information.

That information fills a hole in the study of these groups, he said. Most academic attention has focused on the beliefs or on psychological effects on the believers. Bader's goal was to identify the kinds of people who subscribe to these beliefs.

What he came up with has its limits, he admits. The sample size is small, and there's no way to know for sure if they represent the average UFO abductee or ritual-abuse survivor. But the results are in line with research done on other small, new religious movements, he said.

Many academics who study such movements tend to consider members of these particular groups as rubes, he said. "They assume that these are some country bumpkins who believe that the UFOs are plucking them off their tractors. That's not what people who are interested in new ideas are like."

It turns out that the folk who filled out Bader's forms are a lot like most Americans who seek out unusual faith experiences: They're generally female, white, affluent and well-educated when compared with the general population.

Of the 51 UFO abductees, 32 were women, 48 said they were white and six identified as Native American (three chose both categories), 34 attended some college, and 29 were white-collar workers. Most said they found some positive aspects to their experience.

Of the 48 ritual-abuse survivors, all were white women, 44 had attended college, and of the 21 then employed, 18 were white-collar workers. This was an unhappy population, and most reported they had dozens of multiple personalities.

What they have in common, Bader said, is that they mostly follow the pattern found in other new religious movements.

"The theory tells us that it doesn't matter about the personality of the 'god' involved," he said. "The point is that a certain demographic is interested in things outside the mainstream."

I was on your other thread talking of the abductees with implants being the ones who will be "beamed up" to meet the lord in the air prior to Armageddon....it ties in rather nicely with your Jacob-12 tribes- genetically modified bloodlines idea doesn't it, given that the sealing of the elect and rising in the air to meet the lord ties in with the 144,000 of the 12 tribes. Rising in the air = beamed up to the motherships ?

Two problems - one is that Jacob already had most of his sons (and daughter) born.
Second - that it was not a damage to a "unspecific" thigh that may symbolize something. But to a noted sciatic nerve ,or sinew of a thigh. Which is certainly not involved in passing genetic material.
