I'll admit two things right up front that could be embarrassing. I read the "PEOPLE" celebrity quotes of the week just now. And, I'm an X-phile. There, now I feel better.
I've long had a theory that UFO's are, indeed, real - it's just that people are so very wrong about what they really are. Bible prophecy speaker, Chuck Missler says that they are the return of the Nephilim. I think that is likely very close to the correct explanation. Considering that these beings change shape and tactics according to the times and the culture (succubi, anyone?), I think some sort of spiritual deception/demonic involvement has to be part of the explanation. Vivid dreams and sleep paralysis also go along way towards de-bunking the abduction stories. However, one little matter had never occurred to me. If these things are really beings from somewhere out there, why are they so selective in their appearances?
And don't forget, the X-files movie comes out July 15.
"I don't think aliens or ghosts like black people. We never get abducted; our houses never get haunted. It always happens in rural areas, where no ethnic people live. The day I see somebody from South Central Los Angeles say, 'Man, I got abducted yesterday,' then I'll believe it." – Rapper Xzibit, who is costarring opposite David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and Amanda Peet in the upcoming movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe
