Subject: FWD [fort] Re: Brazilian Abduction Has 18 Witnesses; Stones Fall from
The Brazilian abduction affair includes everything ever invented
about UFO abductions (except the slightest smidgin of plausibility.)
I strongly suspect a hoax here for these reasons;
1)The unsupported claim that 28 people (including the writer)
witnessed this Hollywoodesque drama but said nothing until "after 48
hours" had elapsed and the abducted man "was returned" - THEN one of
them casually notified Rense - is absurd. Why didn't they report
this astonishing abduction immediately, as anybody would? Wouldn't
his wife or family have gone to the police, and wouldn't the police
have said something or done something during those two days? In the
meantime - multiple witnesses to a man being sucked up by a UFO -
the biggest world-wide first imaginable - remained silent! Photos!
Story! Name your own price! Doh!
2)How did he get back - where did he re-appear - what did he say
happened to him? Nothing is mentioned. Who is this abductee and why
isn't he selling his story to the clamouring world press (after his
third abduction, yet)? He obviously needs a better agent... here's
my phone number(...)
3)Apart from not immediately reporting this astonishing abduction
event there are also no names, dates, times, locations, confirmation
or supportive evidence provided; even the photos carefully avoid
identifiable images of the participants, but do give a glimpse of
army camouflage pants to insinuate an interest by the military.
4) Crisp sheets that retain their sharp fold-lines despite being
allegedly slept on, and a nicely fluffed-up pillow lacking the
impression of a head, lead only to the conclusion that something
constructed was carefully laid onto a fresh sheet and manipulated to
achieve the required effect.
5)The hoaxers' talents didn't extend to drawing a decent outline of
a human on the ceiling though. Michelangelo managed ceilings OK, but
this effort falls very far short. Take a look at the ridiculous
straight lines representing the legs to start with, but also there
is absolutely nothing marked anywhere on this sham that approaches
any natural contact point of the human body. Some clueless non-
artist has randomly burned marks within a (now-erased) chalk outline
on the ceiling.
6)I'll also back my hunch that the "stones", or hand-made pot-
looking things (some with handles)in the final photo, far from
falling out of the sky, have never been anywhere near the sky.
Something like what Douglas Adams wrote in "The Hitchhiker's Guide
to the Galaxy" must have not happened in Brazil that day...
"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks
...but in exactly the opposite way (if you see what I mean).
