Wired published an interesting piece by a photographer who attended this year’s UFO conference.
Alien abductions make for a good sci-fi plot devices, but it’s easy to forget that we walk among people — in the real world — who claim to have been visited, beamed up and probed by little gray men.
New York photographer Steven Hirsch, 63, has met many of these people face to face. He visited this year’s International UFO Conference to meet, photograph and interview people who avow close contact with extraterrestrials.
“I’ve met Salamander beings and I’ve met various different types of Greys. I’ve also met the Blue Arcturians which are incredible. They all have their own personalities and their own purposes. I’ve met Andromedans, the Assyrian Warriors of Light. I’ve met the Sirius Nephrons. I’ve also met the Cat People that are from Sirius.
If the UFO community wants a little more credibility they could start by publicly recommending certain members of their community seek proper psychiatric care. But then they would have to stop ignoring the demarcation problem between science and pseudoscience.
