This is what I think. For whatever reason, they baited this man by messing with his crop, knowing that this would illicit a response. He does find the lavender bushes messed with, comes back out the next day and closely approaches them which is exactly what they are waiting for. They "zap" him, abduct him and then return him to the same spot. Again, for whatever reason. The man reports later that he was standing there watching the craft and the next minute it was just gone (insert missing time). He is numb for sometime after, is "tired" and sleeps a lot.
Even he says there is something he is not telling but is also sure they mean no harm. I wonder that happened to him during the missing time?
So interstellar aliens, in their infinite wisdom, can't elude a farmer or bother scanning the area beforehand to make sure it's clear?

I agree that there would be no need to evade him. He is not a threat, and quite possibly what they came to study, as others have stated.
I am convinced of the benevolence of most, if not all ET's. Taking for granted that they exist in the first place of course. Greer has a lot of detractors, but I still think he is spot on in this regard. The cold blooded, heartless, fear evoking 'greys' are a fabrication of those who want to keep us afraid and manipulatable. Don't believe it people.

If we could fly to some ET planet with a complex technological civilization which didn't have interstellar flight, would we behave like the supposed 'grey ETs'? No, we'd be on our best behavior.
We may arrive offering the hand of friendship but I think we would leave with what we wanted in our pockets and devastation in our wake .... I wouldn't trust us and I'm one of us

The guy that did that illustration should be shot. I am familiar with that software and immediately notice that the shed and the mountain are floating above the ground.
Cool story though.
