Ufology is the study of reports, visual records, physical evidence, and other phenomena related to unidentified flying objects (UFO). UFO reports have been subject to various investigations over the years by governments, independent groups, and scientists. However, modern academia does not recognize ufology as a legitimate field, and considers it as pseudoscience.
Associated UFO abduction claims should be taken seriously to determine and assess victimization. Abductions portraying “aliens” may have been induced through unethical human experimentation, accompanied with the use of developing or experimental psychosomatic drugs. Unethical human experimentation in the United States began as early as the 1950s, according to well-documented claims.
1947 to 1952Edit
The Kenneth Arnold UFO sighting in 1947, is considered to be the earliest report of a "flying saucer". It was seen near Mount Rainier, Washington, where Arnold described the UFOs as "saucers skipping over a lake."
In the US, from 1947 to 1952/3, a high concentration of UFO activity, predominately throughout Four Corners, USA, are reported and/or suppressed. Project Sign (1947), Project Grudge (1949/51), and Project Blue Book (1952) were part of the US response to the UFO phenomena, conducted by the USAF. While the initial projects were primarily for information gathering, Blue Book served as a major disinformation tool. Enter Project 1947.
October 16, 1957 is the first known abduction case in the World. 23-year old Brazilian farmer Antonio Vilas-Boas, sighted an “egg-shaped craft” in São Francisco de Sales, Brazil. Vilas became a victim to an abduction that involved a sexual encounter.
September 19-20, 1961 marks the first reported alien abduction experience in the United States, concerning the Hill UFO encounter. Barney and Betty Hill encountered a UFO while driving through the New Hampshire countryside. They both witnessed the unidentified flying object, experienced missing time, and post-traumatic symptoms.
The National Investigations Committee On Aerial Phenomena was a group of civilians active in the study of UFOs and UFO reports from the 1950's to the 1980's.
