Actually, the reverse may also be true.
When you consider that the number of abductees consists of those people who either consciously remember being abducted or those who, after having PTSD or other problems, decided to undergo regression hypnosis and then discovered their abduction, there may be many, many more who are abductees but are unaware of it.
Many people, perhaps most people, would be afraid to undergo regression hypnosis for what they might learn. I count myself among that number.
You’re only commenting on abductions, not UFO sightings. The violent nature of abductions by unusual creatures would produced those feelings. I can only imagine how and alien would view it, if nazis had gone to another world. But that wouldn’t make the nazis demons, only evil.
As for demonic actions, like the sexual reports. Many believers view other religions as demonically influenced, which would include evil behavior such as sexual abductions. Alien religions, if any, would not likely be based on Christ, and therefore likely a form of devil worship. What’s kind of behavior do you expect from alien sinners?
And there are reports in sightings of more than one race. Some have been seen as fairly benign, and only the more aggressive and curious would risk and physical encounter. Whatever they are, judging the actions of one group to represent them all is risky.
Most sightings are mistaken events, easily explained away. Some are hoaxes. But many are buy reputable people. I’m certain and air force or airline pilot can recognize a ship. And most of what is going on doesn’t resemble biblical demonic activity. That usually involved posession, not abduction.
I would suggested looking at Medieval accounts be done with a grain of salt. Everything they didn’t understand was deamed demonic and embellished in stories.
I am only commenting on abductions (though abductions usually involve a craft or what would be described as a UFO).
And you are again correct in that some "aliens" are described as benign (and they might indeed be benign...or those describing them might have developed Stockholm syndrome).
Actual benign sightings are simply ones where someone describes seeing and alien, with minimal or no interaction.
Any abduction would automatically be a hostile act in any sane mindset. As for their intentions? Ultimately, who knows. I’m not a big believer in passive ETs. Life is too hostile for that to work.
I don’t know how much stock to put into alien sightings. Those are much more rare. but UFO are much harder to dismiss. Their source is a mystery, but something is flying around.
Silly me. There must be at least that many and many more, else how did Obama get elected?
Something a pastor one said. He didn’t believe in ET, but he knew how he would respond if he met one.
Point at alien. “you need to repent, be baptized, and receive the Holy Ghost.”
Hey, if there are aliens, they may be the new evangelism.
Thanks for the ping. This year is the 60th anniversary of the swarm of UFOs over Washington, DC.
Jacques Vallee -- His best guess is some kind of technology that transmits a hologram with mass. But he doesn't know and doesn't claim to know. He looks at the evidence and there is a hell of a lot of evidence that the skeptics dismiss with a joke. The skeptics haven't report the witness report and also the physical evidence. Saying that it's simply delusion or insanity is in itself delusional and insane. Look at the evidence that is out there.
“Point at alien. you need to repent, be baptized, and receive the Holy Ghost.
I just hope the alien is not the ones front Signs, or the baptism is going to be and act of faith.
Waters burned them like acid in that’s movie, if you didn’t know.
The coming attractions look like one of those insipid ghost chasing shows, running around at night filmed in UV, screaming in fright.
