What are the Greys? Aliens, from Inner Earth or a Hoax?
The Greys are the most well known alien race
If you take an interest in ufology and the paranormal, and even if you don't, you are no doubt aware of alien beings commonly known as "The Greys." They are probably the best known alien race or type of extraterrestrial.
Most people have seen the images of a little men with whitish grey skin, holes for the nostrils, a slit-mouth and huge black wrap-around eyes. They appear in comics, in sci-fi films, in books and even as toys. Ask someone to draw an alien and the chances are they will draw a Grey.
You would think that seeing as what a Grey looks like is so well known that there would be a corresponding amount of information about these beings, and so there is but much of it is conflicting and none of it is supported by science.

Images of Greys
Buy Communion the classic book about alien abductions
One of the first sources of information that gave rise to the belief in Greys was the "crashed flying saucer" that was said to have come down in Roswell in 1947. Some witnesses reported seeing the bodies of small humanoids that were in the craft whilst governmental stories circulated saying it was nothing more than a weather balloon.
One reason the traditional image of the Grey is so well-established is because it appeared on the front cover of Whitley Strieber's best-seller Communion. You would see it on most book-stands and in bookshop windows. Millions of people saw it that way and then a film that went on general release followed this.
The Greys are reported to be the main type of alien being that carries out abductions of humans, often subjecting their victims to painful and intrusive probes or examinations. Some people claim that samples of bodily fluids and flesh are taken by the creatures that have kidnapped them. Most abductees report that the aliens showed no emotion and didn't care if they hurt their victims or not.
Some people have said that these beings are telepathic. Others have reported other extraterrestrial or alien beings that accompany them in their craft and at their bases. From these reports has come the idea that the Greys work with or for other types that are known of such as the Reptilians.
But where are these Greys said to be coming from? Some authors and researchers such as Stewart Swerdlow say the Greys are from Zeta Reticuli. Swerdlow lists two types - Zeta Reticuli I and Zeta Reticuli II.
In his book Blue Blood, True Blood: Conflict and Creation, Stewart tells us that the former race were created by the Rigelians to "monitor humans on Earth." He says they asked the US government for asylum here but angered the government by lying to them. He further adds that this type of Grey is from a dying race due to "genetic/hormonal deficiencies" and he says they are abducting humans in an effort to create a hybrid race to save themselves and their culture.
The same author says that the Zeta Reticuli II type of Greys are controlled by the Reptilians and that they are "hooked up to a computer" and have a "group mind."
Freeman, of the Freeman Perspective series, has suggested that the Greys are actually an Inner-Earth race from this planet. My favourite alien contactee, Alex Collier, makes many references to the Greys in his interviews and writings.
Small humanoid beings that look like Greys have also featured in the Ray Santilli alien autopsy footage that has done the rounds with some people saying these autopsies were real and others claiming it is all a hoax.
Some ufologists and conspiracy theory writers and researchers have come to the conclusion that the Greys are actually either humans dressed as aliens and that the abductions are carried out by secret and sinister military forces or that the little beings are created by some form of mind-control involving hypnosis and mind-altering drugs.
Then there is the website by Nancy "an emissary" for the Zeta Greys, and I have added the link to the site in the Greys links menu but I will leave you to make of it what you will
Personally I believe in the Greys and in more than one race. As far as I know I have never met or seen any but I cannot be sure because I have seen many UFOs and it is well-established that an abductee's memory can be wiped or changed by the beings doing the abducting.
Stewart Swerdlow talks about "green slime" in one of his books and I have seen this. I have a friend who used to live in Cardiff, who claimed to have had visitations by the Greys, and once in a house she was staying at after once such experience I saw green slimy marks on a bedroom wall and they looked like they had been left by fingers.
