Extraterrestrial Abductions Day – March 20, 2023

Extraterrestrial Abduction Day on March 20 focuses on individuals who claim to have personally encountered extraterrestrial beings from outer space, most commonly referred to as aliens. These claims are widely notorious across the globe but are particularly a trend in the United States. There have been theories by different people, some of whom are scientists, who have done extensive research and carried out a variety of tests to determine the existence, or lack thereof, of extraterrestrial presence on Earth. Perhaps a major contributor to this popularity is the feature of aliens in several Hollywood productions.

History of Extraterrestrial Abductions Day

The most common claims of extraterrestrial abduction usually involve forced tests which often yield inconclusive results. Abductees often claim to have engaged in cross-breeding with aliens, while at other times they claim to receive warnings of future events from these aliens. These claims have varied over time, and they are usually dependent on the culture and environment of the abductees. The theories based on U.F.O. sightings and phenomena such as extraterrestrial shape-shifting and mind control have been posited by many to simply be a radical political plot or to be conspiracy theories.

There have been many reports of extraterrestrial abductions around the world, but the most common ones are traceable to native English-speaking countries, with the United States leading the pack. The first widely publicized, or “viral,” extraterrestrial abduction claim was that of Betty and Barney Hill. Claims of U.F.O. abductions have, however, dipped in comparison to when they first surfaced halfway through the ‘70s and mainstream media no longer pays any attention to such claims. In the 1950s, there was a claim of alien abduction involving an individual named Antônio Villas-Boas, and his case would only gain attention and popularity years after its occurrence. The classic case of alien abduction is arguably that of Barney and Betty Hill as it was the first time that a description of alien beings claiming an extraterrestrial origin was ever made.

Arguments have been made over the years that if indeed there are extraterrestrial beings abducting humans, then there should be reasonable evidence to the fact. Individuals who believe in the possibility and actuality of extraterrestrial abduction, have suggested that there are ways by which these abductions can indeed be confirmed. One such test which seems to be most common involves a form of laparoscopy where a syringe is inserted into the human navel.
