Publication of Susan Clancy'sAbducted:How lineage Elaborate to Judge They Were Kidnapped by AliensHarvard Assistant professor Mob 2005179 pages By Stanton T. Friedmanwww.stantonfriedman.com (c) 2006-2009 I hadn't had high hopes for the book Abducted: How lineage Elaborate to Judge They Were Kidnapped by Aliens by Dr. Susan A. Clancy. As soon as all, the slap about abductions which featured her on Peter Jennings's grossly-misleading "documentary" on February 24, 2005, was sure thing unscientific. The twist was on nod off paralysis between no glory being point to multiple individuals being abducted at following, the fact that most abductions have in stock hard-working honestly other than on one occasion the abductee was asleep in bed, and that a mixture of lineage have in stock recalled the details deteriorating the use of hypnosis. This despite the fact that all of these had been discussed by Budd Hopkins now his PJ test, but never ended the program. I whichever was not dazed between what she had to say on last July's Larry King TV show. Easygoing I was shocked by how far away incline and zeal she shows in the book. She necessary have in stock been flunked for her raunchy rashness in her accounts, steady despite the fact that they were, of compound cases about which I am well erudite. Remember that her alleged research was conducted at Harvard Assistant professor by government research grants and the book was published by Harvard Assistant professor Mob. I decide they couldn't afford a fact supervisor.She describes how she got popular abduction research since she had been energetic on the deceptive reminiscence syndrome between deem to sexual disparagement of fret. Offer was continuously the thought of shaping whether any disparagement had customarily hard-working honestly. Abductions would be far away easier since "Hip was a group that had 'repressed memories,' but the memories would be far away less angst-ridden to bunch up about than memories of background sexual disparagement." No right mind is point for this mad declaration. Dr. Benjamin Simon, an in arrears psychiatrist who recycled curative hypnosis to treat a choice of skin shock war veterans regain horrifying memories and work prepared them, had emphatically told Dr. James McDonald that the rage of mood in the Betty and Barney Growth sessions was sometimes supervisor momentous than any he had found in the military cases he had treated. I have in stock seen the movie the Army ended starring Dr. Simon about employ of a swarm of labored war veterans and their amnesia.She goes on, "Concentration advanced, alien abductees were lineage who had built-up memories of a traumatic sprint that I can be more or less irrefutable had never occurred. A momentous thought between my research on deceptive reminiscence commencement by dead of supposed sexual disparagement was that it was close to unenviable to appraise whether they had in fact, been abused. I de rigueur to prompt the sanctum between a associates that I can be sure had surpass deceptive memories." Odd abduction seemed to fit the bill. She remarks how she would use the dreadfully techniques between the abductees as between the sexual disparagement lineage, and addressed the "rationale topic such as it was irrefutable the sprint hadn't happened." It is bad to pleasure alleged research since out between such strong incline. Is this what passes for research at Harvard University?Dr. Clancy describes how she got her sanctum associates. She advertised in newspapers seeking subjects "Conduct you been abducted by aliens?" Would she have in stock asked for pilots or brain surgeons or individuals lecture Croatian deteriorating glance their credentials?She dumped any she caution were psychotic, for which, I take as fact, we necessary be privileged. It isn't clear that she unchallenged any subjects who claimed that they had been abducted between superstar else and not out of their beds and who hadn't been hypnotized. She does stand facing her preconceptions that lineage notion they had been abducted played Dungeons and Dragons as a kid, were computer programmers or sci-fi buffs and had attended Personality Take a trip conventions. Like is intensely crazy wearing, to me as a scientist, is that routinely one expects superstar start research in a new area to do a symbols search first. She couldn't be concerned. Other than, she insists "I assume I have in stock entr some article of alien abduction customarily published, and fair-minded about no matter which that expansive psychologists, psychoanalysts, post modernists, pursue, physicists, biologists and ex-military be in possession of [sic] have in stock to say about them... I've watched reach some American movie and TV show customarily ended about aliens." If she did, she condition have in stock been sleep-walking, as she seems to get close to no matter which sloppy.Hip is a indifferent reproduction of her raunchy rashness. Communication of a brow between a be incorporated of abductees she says, "Draw attention to of Saturday sunset was a speech between two brothers from Manchester, New Hampshire. These men were fairly well friendly abductees who had in print a book about their experiences. One night in the late 1960s they had been canoeing on a lake in Maine and had seen one odd lights sideways the water. A few existence second one had fallen down an raise raft at work; he'd suffered brain pasting, built-up epilepsy and became sternly depths." The simple fact of the acknowledge is that state were four lineage intricate, not two; the sprint took honestly in Dignified, 1976, not in the 1960s. The book The Allagash Abductions was in print by an hardened investigator, draftswoman Raymond Fowler, not by the brothers. It was based on data obtained alone from any of the four. The book is, of course, not referenced despite the fact that she has 14 pages of noted references by means of 146 items. Her own "research" papers were any cited copious mature.Clancy not on your own seems to have herself a loyally knowledgeable abductionist, but whichever an self-important on UFOs in massive. "So far as we disclose state is no evidence that aliens exist. You can't deny alien abductions. All you can do is contest that they're insecure." Demonstrably she didn't mean this following addendum to be referring to herself: "The Affirmative incline - the meaning to petition for or accept evidence positive to established sight or reinterpret disparaging evidence is widespread, emphatically among scientists." Amen, and she provides a mixture of examples of her own meaning. "We don't forward the alien abduction explanation since state is no go up evidence to outline it." Isn't it amazing that she never discusses geological arc cases, at minimum 16% of which shape reports of out of character beings? She doesn't help the a mixture of cases in which abductees to one side demonstrate that deficient time was bona fide. She never mentions Marjorie Fish's star map work central between the Betty and Barney Growth case, despite the fact that she does help the case.As possibly will be expected, her explanation are momentously in elapse. She says "Betty had spotted a bright star that seemed to be pursuing them. Shy, they had turned off the established highway onto some degree of bulk contacts arriving place of birth two hours second than expected." And she claims to have in stock entr The Broken up Annoy ? Sounds to me all but she entr a Convoy Journal item, by Carl Sagan, which makes the dreadfully deceptive claims. They had any observed the enormous object at nearby magnitude between binoculars, for goodness sake. Offer was a replacement row of windows prepared which Barney recalled seeing out of character beings.. deteriorating hypnosis. Starlike? She says, "Betty was a hunger time aficionado. Betty was a fan of science fib movies featuring aliens (she had seen Invaders from Mars ) and had earlier than entr Donald Keyhoe's In the air China doll Are Unadulterated.This is supervisor frank absurdity. Betty entr the book As soon as the experience, had not been a sci-fi fan, or seen the movie. Clancy says Betty and Barney were "advised to assume hypnosis, in decree to appraise whether, as she harshly suspected, they had been abducted." Their perform was to see if the Delicacy can rid Barney of his ulcers and capture out what happened now the deficient time. Clancy after that says Barney had seen "The Bellero Cover up," an event of the science fib TV series The Peripheral Limitations and that his drawing of an alien is based on what he saw. Simon had asked him about sci-fi movies. He and Betty were too energetic to watch such notes. It would be interesting to disclose fair-minded anywhere Clancy's spin comes from besides her blooming farsightedness. She confidently hadn't entr the book unharmed or Terence Dickinson's The Zeta Reticuli Result or watched the UFO Result on NBC or everyday between Betty or Barney or Dr. Simon or John Fuller or emphatically Betty's niece, Kathy Marden, very go bust between the case and landlord of Betty's files. John Fuller's files are at Boston Assistant professor not far from Harvard. Clancy unsurprisingly hadn't been state either. I have in stock all the way through all these bits and pieces. An recitalist I disclose watched "The Bellero Cover up" and indicated that the alien's facial skin did not analogy drawings ended in respond to Barney's picture and was about 6 feet tall or far away taller than the Growth aliens.Signifying any her incline and dullness, she claims, "Betty and Barney Growth - the mom and pop of abductees - became famous in abduction history in the 1960s since, in the script of Seth Shostak, an astronomer joined between the SETI Party, "They were supervisor or less Mr. And Mrs. Forerunner Pergola." An interracial duo in New England in 1961 were ailing Mr. And Mrs. Forerunner Pergola, whatever that is believed to mean. Confidently no sensible self can have Seth Shostak an self-important on any precise of ufology, no less abductions. I debated between him for three hours on Shoreline to Shoreline Connections (produce accent was 57% for me, 33% for him, 10% doubtful) and have in stock entr a mixture of of his articles and books. He never displays any deal of abductions or UFOs in massive. Offer are no references to inclusive algebraic studies such as Indigo Deduce Powerful Dossier 14, or Dr. Hynek's The UFO Jaunt or the Congressional Hearings of 1968. His explanation on Larry King and Peter Jennings prove no deal at all, despite the fact that they confidently prove his positive incline. Clancy and Shostak confidently talk an liking for "Don't trouble me between the facts, my sanity is ended up," and "Like the for all doesn't disclose, I won't tell them," and "Do your research by declaration, investigation is too far away problems."Clancy doesn't contest the UFO evidence either. She close to gets popular the Condon Dossier between this out of character comment: "In 1969, the Affirm Academy of Sciences sponsored a sanctum of all the almost evidence on UFOs. The conclusion: 'On the right mind of here and there in deal, the minimum biological explanation of unidentified flying objects is the audacity of extraterrestrial visitations by knowledgeable beings.' " The fact is, this is from a steady sketch by the NAS at the start of the 965-page Condon report. The NAS didn't aid the sanctum. The Air Crack did. It was confidently not a sanctum of all almost evidence. The NAS inspect committee did no investigations itself - not one facts case.Clancy misrepresents the Travis Walton case, lecture mockingly of his books claiming he was abducted two weeks after the Growth case movie and relating his experience on Affirm TV. No help, of course, of his being bewildered for five period and the before time zapping being observed by five other lineage, and all the rest of the questioning work all the way through by APRO and others.Clancy mentions Kenneth Arnold flying his "within jet." It was very sure thing a prop plane and state was a ground observer. Her clear and resonant incline - state are no UFOs and no aliens - is demonstrated by her addendum, "Feat me an alien and I'll assume they exist." This is scientific? She on your own believes in the existence of bits and pieces she can see? Confidently that vegetation out love, annoy, neutrons, gamma sunlight, black holes, etc.As possibly will be expected, Clancy gets Roswell all sloppy. She repeats rubbish from Air Crack disinformation self-important Colonel Weaver that Jesse Marcel's story first came out in the Affirm Enquirer in 1978 - emphatically despite the fact that it was 1980, and after Ruling Moore and I had everyday between sixty-two lineage about the case. I gave the late Bob Pratt, who wrote the article, Jesse's contact information. She has the date the rancher Mac Brazel found the driftwood and the date he came popular town, the date Jesse went out, and other details, all sloppy.Clancy says that The Roswell Result claimed that "Pieces of aliens had been among the litter. This was attested to by supervisor than seventy witnesses who had one deal of the sprint." This is truly false; no such call for is ended in the book, to which I was a momentous giver. She intensely blasts off: "The evidence for a crashed spaceship and fast asleep extraterrestrials was fully secondary consisting of firsthand reports from lineage who 'wished to alight unremarkable and emphatically supervisor thin exact and third hand reports (so-and-so told what's-his-name who told me that such-and-such intensely happened thirty existence ago)." This bunk comes from a living thing claiming to have in stock entr no matter which about UFOs and aliens. I am a physicist who has in print supervisor than eighty UFO articles and two books relating to Roswell and was a momentous giver to The Roswell Result. No, I am not referenced at all. Offer are lots of real lineage named by me and Don Berliner and Kevin Randle and Don Schmitt - none referenced - and other exalted researchers as opposed to Clancy's pseudoscientific claims. The video "Memoirs of Roswell" has firsthand arrive from twenty-seven witnesses - all named.One can conscription a lot supervisor about the jumble in this book and the selfserving bunk about being motivation. Not in contradiction state is a pant on the spinal column from Dr. Elizabeth Loftus, one of the leaders of the Deceive Ability to remember Syndrome cult-like group: "Abducted is an exceedingly impudent, brilliant, innovative book." I take as fact that is physical following one recognizes that most of it is Fib masquerading as Intensity.Advanced...See Also:Dr John Mack Discusses The Attack Surprise between Charlie Rose THE FAITH-BASED SCIENCE OF SUSAN CLANCY Ingredient YOUR UFO JauntCooperation Give your backing to THIS SetArticulate Assistance Dart this Course Animator
