    Do you think people have been abducted by Aliens?

    Do you think its possible that people have actually been abducted by aliens? What plausible explanation for this could there be?

    It is a divisive subject - those who believe in alien visitors to our planet, and those who do not.
    But there are many people on this planet who earnestly claim they have been visited by aliens, and have been abducted and taken off this planet, even to alien homeworlds.
    While their accounts may vary, the one thing they share is a conviction in what they saw, what they experienced, and the impact it had on their lives.

    Whilst I do accept the possibility of life forms in other areas of the universe, I do not accept that if they are of greater intelligence than us that they would waste their time bothering to come here.  It is possible that if there are any other life forms running about out there, some will be at the same level as us, some will be at a higher state and some at a lesser.  Because mankind has a desire and pre-occupation to explore, does not imply that same desire in other life forms.  So no, I don't believe that anyone has been abducted by alien life forms, or that aliens have or do take the trouble to come here.

      Competition for resources is a common theme in all life on Earth. The fundamental laws of physics, for example the 1st Law of Thermodynamics (conservation of mass and energy), is stable throughout our universe.

      No: this is my argument, and it goes for more than this phenomenon alone. 1) The burden of proof lies with the person who claims to be observing something. 2) If they don't possess enough credible witnesses, that constitutes a lack of proof.

      Rachael, Mick's assertion is that alien beings would not think like us. My argument is simply that its closer than we might think, because we share the same universal laws, including scarcity.

    If they have it's none of these people who "claim" they have.  My guess would be people who may have actually been abducted don't remember.  Think about it.  If this alien species is advanced enough to travel to Earth, then wouldn't make sense they are advanced enough in medical science to understand how to wipe a memory.  We as humans have that capability already.  That is why I don't buy any of these stories from other people.

      Many of the stories are supposedly the result of hypnotherapy, however, even that is in question. Look into Satanic Ritual Abuse, it was a hysteria in America in the 80s and 90s.

    I doubt it. There hasn't been any credible evidence for aliens visiting the planet. People who've claimed to be abducted were often shown to have been influenced in their description of the events by certain sci-fi shows. They saw a weird sci-fi on late at night, took too many "medicinal" brownies, and conked out and had weird dreams. There's your explanation. I mean, is it a coincidence that New Mexico, an area rife with alien believers, is also full of poverty and drugs? And why are aliens always seen in the middle of nowhere with only one or two witnesses, not in big cities with lots of people?

      Your argument essentially boils down to a personal attack.
