Why are reports of alien abduction ignored by mainstream science?

Sent to Science News, May 2, 2016

The four articles in the April 30, 2016 edition of Science News dedicated to "the search for aliens" all assume that aliens have not succeeded in contacting us in any way.  Has Science News concluded that reports of abductees are not worthy of discussion?

Note: I sent a very similar letter to Science News nearly 20 years ago, which they published, in reaction to an article in the Sept 7, 1996 edition.

Why haven't ETs shown up yet? Perhaps they have. Exclusion of this possibility suggests that the reports of abductees are not even worthy of discussion.

  1. What could we learn from a conversation with someone who believes that they were abducted by aliens?
