I'm inclined to accept that a small number of abductions are real. They may be done by extraterrestrials, or possibly by military/intelligence operatives. Abductions that I tend to accept are Boas, Betty and Barney Hill, Travis Walton, and maybe the Linda Cortile abduction because of the witnessing by United Nations statesman, Javier Perez de Cuellar. But proponents of alien abductions don't consider it a rare occurrence. They seem to believe that hundreds or thousands of people have been abducted over the years. What do you think? First of all, do you believe any abductions are real? Or do you chalk the phenomenon up to sleep paralysis? Alternatively, you may accept that some abductions may be real, but that they are rare.
