    Bunch of pessimists on this board. I believe we will have some form of contact, even if minimal, with alien life in our lifetime. Probably in the next 20 years or so.

    That's what all the Budd Hopkins of the world believed... twenty years ago.

    Keep dreaming, moonbeam.

    And here ya go... let me put this right there on your head...

    The UFO Curse: No matter how long you live you will never know any more about UFOs than you know today. You will never know any more about what UFOs really are, or where they come from. You will never know any more about what the U.S. Government really knows about UFOs than you know today. As you lie on your own death-bed, you will be as mystified about UFOs as you are today. And you will remember this curse.

    Dude, contact was made in the late 1940s, Truman didn't think the population could handle contact with aliens, but a deal was made, we traded all the gold in the US Treasury for alien technology - mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

    I hate to be a Kirkinite but I wouldn't be surprised if this were true.

    If contact with alien life is ever definitively made, it'll be accomplished/verified by actual scientists... not alien abduction hypnotherapy kooks the likes of Budd "butt probe" Hopkins.

    Can we include anyone who believes in the usefulness of hypnotherapy under the "kook" banner?

    It works for some people for some things. However, any kind of "repressed memory" or "past life regression" or any of that shit is just crap. Hypnosis is a weird state that is more likely to cause you to make up some crazy story than tell the truth.

    This guy was great. His book Intruders is one of the most horrifying things I've ever read.
