They are tiny. They are tall. They are gray. They are green. They survey our world with enormous glowing eyes. To conduct their shocking experiments, they creep in at night to carry humans off to their spaceships. Yet there is no evidence that they exist at all. So how could anyone believe he or she was abducted by aliens? Or want to believe it? To answer these questions, psychologist Susan Clancy interviewed and evaluated "abductees"--old and young, male and female, religious and agnostic. She listened closely to their stories--how they struggled to explain something strange in their remembered experience, how abduction seemed plausible, and how, having suspected abduction, they began to recollect it, aided by suggestion and hypnosis. Clancy argues that abductees are sane and intelligent people who have unwittingly created vivid false memories from a toxic mix of nightmares, culturally available texts (abduction reports began only after stories of extraterrestrials appeared in films and on TV), and a powerful drive for meaning that science is unable to satisfy. For them, otherworldly terror can become a transforming, even inspiring experience. "Being abducted," writes Clancy, "may be a baptism in the new religion of this millennium." This book is not only a subtle exploration of the workings of memory, but a sensitive inquiry into the nature of belief.
Howdy, I am Orlo James Goodson. You may have read one of my other books, the “Jacksonville Norseman Society” or “The Scorpion”. I would like to tell you about another one of my stories “Abducted”. In my reading I found this quote from Bob Lazar a former Government Scientist who worked at S4 near area 51 in southern Nevada. “Obviously the ET craft do exist, something had to build them. So their must be aliens and since there are and the craft are there. There must be some sort of factory and an entire civilization somewhere, and if in fact that is true and it apparently is, then there must be others.” Bob Lazar Former Government Scientist. One of the greatest fears faced by any parent is the fear of one of their children being abducted. Imagine that your child has been abducted and you are an eye witness to a strange craft lifting off the ground with your child inside, it goes straight up disappearing into the star studded night sky. You call for help, you tell the truth, but no one believes you. You are accused of killing your child, you go to jail, lose your job, your spouse divorces you, and you go to court for murder. You are acquitted through strange circumstances. In order to retrieve your child from among the stars and to clear your name, your only hope is to do what can’t be done at a place that doesn’t exist. You must steal an alien ship you know is held on a secret military base in the deserts of Southern Nevada. Once you acquire the ship, before you can go after your child you must out smart an ultra secret government organization that is determined to stop you. After you step off the planet in search of your child among the stars, you encounter a race of cold blooded hateful reptilian aliens that consider you and your child to be animals to be experimented on or a source of food. This book is available in bookstores everywhere and on the internet. You can get an autographed copy or the E-book from my Website at “orlojamesgoodson.com”. I also have other products available. Enjoy the read.
