Grey aliens, also referred to as "Greys", "Grays", "Roswell Greys", and "Zetans", are alleged extraterrestrial beings, and who are named for their skin color.

Around half of all reported alien encounters describe Grey aliens.
Such claims vary in some respects, including their nature (ETs, extradimensionals, demons, or machines), origins, moral dispositions, and intentions.
A composite description derived from some overlaps in claims would have Greys as small-bodied, sexless beings, with smooth grey-coloured skin, an enlarged head, and large black eyes.
The origin of the idea of the Grey is commonly associated with the Betty and Barney Hill abduction claim which took place 1961, although skeptics see precursors in science fiction and earlier claims.
The Grey aliens are also famous from the Roswell UFO incident from 1947.

The Roswell UFO incident took place in the U.S. in June or July 1947, when an airborne object crashed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. Explanations of what took place are based on both official and unofficial communications. Although the crash has been attributed to a secret U.S. military Air Force surveillance balloon by the U.S. government, the most famous explanation of what occurred is that the object was a spacecraft containing extraterrestrial life. Since the late 1970s, the Roswell incident has been the subject of much controversy, and conspiracy theories have arisen about the event.

General Appearance

'Bedroom Visitors in the Night'
The physical descriptions of Greys is always consistent when recalled by abductees.
They also report that Greys are capable of limited telepathic communication - mostly reassuring their victims that "Everything will be fine".
They seem able to put humans into a trance by staring at them, and it is often reported that "they read my soul", referring to their ability to scan the mind of their victims.
Greys are typically depicted as dark grey-skinned diminutive humanoid beings that possess reduced forms of, or completely lack, external human organs such as noses, ears or sex organs.
There is no genitalia visible on the ones that appear to be male, nor is there a pubic bulge seen through the clothing. 
These reports seem to point to the same conclusion: The Greys are sterile, with no sexual organs.
Descriptions of Grey bodies illustrate their sameness: very similar bodies, with only slight changes in proportions, and stylistic differences being observed in their heads, however, even without sexual organs, the Greys seem to have gender, and are not simply neuter.
The genders, however, appear to be completely determined by the mind, with the bodies being identical, or almost identical.
Abductees report that some Greys 'feel' or 'seem' feminine, while others are very 'masculine'. This seems to point to a time of sex differentiation, which was bred out physically, leaving only the mental pattern to demonstrate the differences between males and females in the Grey social infrastructure.
It should also be noted that female Greys are very rarely seen, and are reported to be sterile and incapable of giving birth to offspring.
The males are the ones most commonly observed, and simple deduction will show that there is one scenario possible: the Grey females are few in number, and must be isolated for some reason, perhaps to prevent their loss or for genetic repositories, nevertheless, because Greys cannot breed naturally, due to a lack of sexual organs, artificial methods must be incorporated into their society on a massive, if not simply large, scale to prevent their demise as a species.
The bodies of Greys are usually depicted as being elongated, having a small chest, and lacking in muscular definition and visible skeletal structure.
Their legs are shorter and jointed differently from what one would expect in a human.
Their limbs are often depicted as proportionally different from a human's; their humerus and thighs are the same lengths as their forearms and shins, respectively.
Greys are depicted as having unusually large heads in proportion to their bodies.
They are depicted as having no hair anywhere on the body, including the face, and no noticeable outer ears or noses, but only small openings or orifices for ears and nostrils.
They are depicted as having very small mouths, and very large opaque black eyes with no discernible iris or pupil.

Also reports of alleged encounters state their height to be 2–4 ft tall.
It has been suggested that here are various races of Grey Aliens, much like various human races. 
It is possible that the most common Grey Alien - that most people hear about - is the standard 3-4 foot Grey Alien, also known as the 'Zeta Reticuli Grey'.
These aliens are known to be "kinder" than the 'Bellatrax Greys'.
It has been suggested that the so-called 'Bellatrax Greys' originated, at some time in the distant past, from a star system near the Orion constellation, near the star system of Bellatrax. 
They are much shorter than the other races of Grey Aliens, standing only 1 to 1 1/2 feet tall. 
This race of Greys have probably given rise to the myth of "little people" in old folklore tales and human mythology. 
Although the 'Zeta Reticuli' are thought to be a little "kinder," for the lack of a better word, they nonetheless appear come from the same roots as the 'Bellatrax' race, and are reported by many abductees to also have an apparently aggressive and oppressive agenda towards humans.


In an article published in 1893, 'Man of the Year Million', H. G. Wells envisaged humanity transformed into a race of grey-skinned beings, stunted and with big heads.

H G Wells - on the set of 'Things to Come'
Also in Wells's 1895 novel, 'The Time Machine',  the Morlocks  appear as  greyish-white.

In Wells' 1901 book 'The First Men in the Moon', Wells described 'Selenites' (natives of the Moon) as having grey skin, big heads and large black eyes.
He also briefly describes aliens resembling 'Greys' brought down to Earth as food by the Martian antagonists of his 1898 novel 'The War of the Worlds'.

H. G. Wells
Herbert George "H. G." Wells (21 September 1866 – 13 August 1946) was an English writer, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre. He was also a prolific writer in many other genres, including contemporary novels, history, politics and social commentary, even writing textbooks and rules for war games. Wells is sometimes called "The Father of Science Fiction", as are Jules Verne and Hugo Gernsback. His most notable science fiction works include ;The War of the Worlds', ,The Time Machine', 'The Sleeper Awakes' and 'Men Like Gods'.

In 1933, the Swedish novelist Gustav Sandgren, using the pen name Gabriel Linde, published a science-fiction novel called 'Den okända faran' (The Unknown Danger), in which he describes a race of extraterrestrials:
"the creatures did not resemble any race of humans. They were short, shorter than the average Japanese, and their heads were big and bald, with strong, square foreheads, and very small noses and mouths, and weak chins. 
What was most extraordinary about them were the eyes – large, dark, gleaming, with a sharp gaze.  They wore clothes made of soft grey fabric, and their limbs seemed to be similar to those of humans."
The novel, aimed at young readers, included illustrations of the imagined aliens.

 Betty and Barney Hill
Marjorie Fish
In 1965 newspaper reports of the Betty and Barney Hill abduction brought Greys to international attention.
The alleged abductees, Betty and Barney Hill, claimed that in 1961 alien beings had abducted them and taken them to a saucer-shaped spaceship.
The term "Greys", however, did not come into usage until many years later, but the alleged beings described by Betty and Barney Hill generally fit many of the common traits of the Greys.
From a star chart reported by Betty Hill, Marjorie Fish, an elementary-school teacher and amateur astronomer, located the home planet of these beings in the Zeta Reticuli star-system (allegedly the fourth planet of one of the stars of the Zeta Reticuli binary system).
The Greys therefore sometimes became known as 'Zeta Reticulans'.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind
The Greys also appear as the (benevolent) aliens in the 1977 movie 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind'.

'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' is a 1977 American science fiction film written and directed by Steven Spielberg and features actors Richard Dreyfuss, François Truffaut, Melinda Dillon, Teri Garr, Bob Balaban, and Cary Guffey. It tells the story of Roy Neary, an everyday blue collar worker in Indiana, whose life changes after an encounter with an unidentified flying object (UFO). The film includes images of aliens based on descriprions of alien Greys.

During the early 1980s popular culture linked Greys to the alleged crash-landing of a flying saucer in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.

The Roswell UFO incident took place in the U.S. in June or July 1947, when an airborne object crashed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. Explanations of what took place are based on both official and unofficial communications. Although the crash is attributed to a secret U.S. military Air Force surveillance balloon by the U.S. government, the most famous explanation of what occurred is that the object was a spacecraft containing extraterrestrial life. Since the late 1970s, the Roswell incident has been the subject of much controversy, and conspiracy theories have arisen about the event. It was claimed that alien bodies were recovered from the crash, and that these bodies were similar in description to the alien Greys reported by abductees.

A number of publications contained statements from individuals who claimed to have seen the U.S. military handling a number of unusually proportioned, bald, child-sized beings.

These individuals claimed that the beings had over-sized heads and slanted eyes - but scant other facial features - during and after the incident.
In 1987, the novelist Whitley Strieber published the book 'Communion', in which he describes a number of close encounters he experienced with Greys and other extraterrestrial beings.

Whitley Strieber
The book became a New York Times best-seller, and New Line Cinema released a rather unsatisfactory film adaptation, starring Christopher Walken in 1989.
In 1988 Christophe Dechavanne interviewed the French science-fiction writer and ufologist Jimmy Guieu during a weekly French TV Live Show which, at the time, was entitled “Ciel, mon mardi !”.
It was broadcast by TF1, one of the three national TV channels in France.
Besides mentioning Majestic 12, Jimmy Guieu described the existence of what he called “the little greys” which, later on, became better known in French under the following name: 'les petits gris'.

Majestic 12 (or MJ-12) is alleged to have been the code name of a secret committee of scientists, military leaders, and government officials, formed in 1947 by an executive order by U.S. President Harry S. Truman. The purpose of the committee was to have been to investigate reports of "flying saucer" sightings that were then being received by U.S. military intelligence, and in particular to look into the possible physics and technology of propulsion of the aerial objects that were being reported. The formation of the committee is, because of the timing, widely believed to have been precipitated by the recovery of a UFO north of Roswell, New Mexico during July 1947 (see above).

The X-Files
During the 1990s, popular culture began to increasingly link Greys to a number of 'military-industrial complex'/'New World Order' conspiracy theories.
A well-known example of this was the FOX television series 'The X-Files', which first aired in 1993.
It combined the quest to find proof of the existence of Grey-like extraterrestrials with a number of UFO conspiracy theory sub-plots, in order to form its primary 'story arc'.

The X-Files is an American science fiction drama television series created by Chris Carter. The program originally aired from September 10, 1993 to May 19, 2002, spanning nine seasons and 202 episodes. The series revolves around FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) investigating 'X-Files': marginalized, unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena. Mulder believes in the existence of aliens and the paranormal while Scully, a sceptic, is assigned to make scientific analyses of Mulder's discoveries to debunk his work and thus return him to mainstream cases. Early in the series, both agents become pawns in a larger conflict, and come to trust only each other. They develop a close relationship, which begins as a platonic friendship, but becomes a romance by series end. 

Other notable examples include 'Dark Skies', first broadcast in 1996, which expanded upon the MJ-12 conspiracy, and Stargate SG-1, which in the 1998 episode "Thor's Chariot" introduced the Asgard, a race of benevolent Greys who visited ancient Earth masquerading as characters from Norse Mythology.

Dark Skies
Dark Skies is an American UFO conspiracy theory-based sci-fi television series that aired from the 1996 to 1997 season for 18 episodes, plus a two-hour pilot episode. The success of 'The X-Files' on Fox proved there was an audience for science fiction shows, resulting in NBC commissioning this proposed competitor following a pitch from producers Bryce Zabel and Brent Friedman. The series debuted September 21, 1996 on NBC, and was later rerun by the Sci-Fi Channel. Its tagline was "History as we know it is a lie."

Roger Smith
Greys, significantly referred to as 'visitors', appear in two episodes of South Park, and 'Roger Smith', a regular character on the animated comedy series 'American Dad', since its debut in 2005, is a Grey-like alien.

Roger Smith is a fictional character in the adult animated sitcom 'American Dad !', voiced by Seth MacFarlane. The character was created by Moustapha Dioum, Xander Bodette, Josh Sorrell and Erin Franz. Roger is a centuries-old grey space alien living with the Smith family, around whom the show revolves. Having lived on Earth since 1947, (Roswell ?) Roger came to live with the Smiths after rescuing main character Stan Smith's life at Area 51 four years prior to the beginnings of the series.

On 'Babylon 5', the Greys were referred to as the 'Vree', and depicted as being allies and trade partners of 23rd Century Earth.

Babylon 5 is an American space opera television series created by writer and producer J. Michael Straczynski, in association with Warner Bros. Domestic Television. Set between the years 2258 and 2281, it depicts a future where Earth has made contact with other space-faring races. Described as "one of the most complex programs on television," the various story arcs drew upon the prophesies, religious zealotry, racial tensions, social pressures, and political rivalries which existed within each of their cultures.


The 2011 film 'Paul' tells the story of a Grey who attributes the Greys' frequent presence in science-fiction pop-culture to the US government deliberately inserting the stereotypical Grey alien image into mainstream media so that if humanity came into contact with Paul's species, there would be no immediate shock as to their appearance.


Greys are commonly included in alien abduction claims.
Among reports of alien encounters, Greys make up approximately 50 percent in Australia, 43 percent in the United States, 90 percent in Canada, 67 percent in Brazil, 20 percent in Continental Europe, and around 12 percent in the United Kingdom.

These reports often include two distinct groups of Greys that differ in height.
Abductees say that they recognize the leader of their abductors by its "demeanor."
Some researchers believe that the taller Greys, with their reported increased authority, and apparently more complex psychology, may be the only Grey type to be biologically alive, and that the shorter form could be their artificially constructed robot or cyborg servants.
Some alien abduction reports have depicted variant skin colors such as blue-grey, green-grey, or purple-grey.
The skin is typically described as being extremely smooth, almost as if made of an artificial material like rubber or plastic.
Abduction claims are often described as extremely traumatic, similar to an abduction by humans or even a sexual assault in the level of trauma and distress.

Research has shown that emotional impact of perceived abduction can be as great as or even greater than that of combat, sexual abuse, and other traumatic events.
The eyes are often a focus of abduction claims.
They are said to not move or focus in any observable way from the naked eye.
Claims often describe a Grey staring into the eyes of an abductee when conducting mental procedures.
This staring is claimed to induce hallucinogenic states or directly provoke different emotions.
Although abduction claimants often say that the Grey was only inches from their face during the staring 'mind-scan' procedure, they often do not subsequently claim feeling breath or seeing the Grey's chest move from breathing.

Evolutionary Feasibility Debate

It has been claimed that the typical image of a Grey, given that it would have evolved into a world with different environmental and ecological conditions from Earth, is too physiologically similar to a human to be credible as a representation of an alien.
Their physical structure has been sometimes viewed as supporting the 'Panspermia Theory' of origins, although the "parallel evolution" required is not scientifically proven.

Panspermia (Greek: πανσπερμία from πᾶς/πᾶν "all" and σπέρμα (sperma) "seed") is the hypothesis that life exists throughout the Universe, distributed by meteoroids, asteroids, comets and planetoids. Panspermia is the proposal that life forms that can survive the effects of space, such as 'extremophiles', become trapped in debris that is ejected into space after collisions between planets that harbor life and small Solar System bodies (SSSB). Some organisms may travel dormant for an extended amount of time before colliding randomly with other planets or intermingling with protoplanetary disks. If met with ideal conditions on a new planet's surfaces, the organisms become active and the process of evolution begins. Panspermia is not meant to address how life began, just the method that may cause its distribution in the universe.

However, this theory may not explain such remarkable Grey-human similarities as the facial geometry, the apparent sternal-xiphoidal process, the evident pectoral-trapezial architecture, and the number of toes per foot.

Some experts suggest that such coincidences show that extraterrestrial beings had some influence on the evolution of life on Earth in the distant past, specifically that extraterrestrials were directly involved in the evolution of primates, including humans.
This could have been achieved by genetic engineering, cross-breeding, or a combination of both.
This theory has gained widespread exposure, and has since been the source of much controversy, inspiring numerous other books with various related theories.
Proponents of this theory of alien genetic/evolutionary intervention on Earth argue that if the Greys (or similar beings) were performing genetic manipulations and/or experiments with pre-human life forms on Earth, that these alleged aliens may have attempted to influence the evolution of life forms here in a direction consistent with their own genetic make-up, and similar to their own physiology and general physical structure, since genetically that is what they would presumably be most familiar with.

John A. Keel
from another dimension
Since the history of life on Earth gives some idea of what is and is not feasible on other worlds, and there is no conclusive evidence of any alleged past extraterrestrial genetic manipulation in our own evolution, some Ufologists have offered alternative explanations to accommodate for the evolutionary improbability of Greys (or any other bipedal, humanoid "extraterrestrial" species) by explaining them as being native hominids to Earth, either having left or living in hiding, as Mac Tonnies proposed in his book 'The Cryptoterrestrials', or from another dimension, as proposed by John A. Keel and J. Allen Hynek.

John Alva Keel, born Alva John Kiehle (March 25, 1930 – July 3, 2009) was an American journalist and influential UFOlogist who is best known as author of 'The Mothman Prophecies'.

Dr. Josef Allen Hynek (May 1, 1910 – April 27, 1986) was a United States astronomer, professor, and ufologist. He is perhaps best remembered for his UFO research. Hynek acted as scientific adviser to UFO studies undertaken by the U.S. Air Force.

The Origin of the Greys

The origin of the Grey species is open for debate considering the evidence found that suggest they have been visiting Earth for thousands of years.
According to reports, Greys come in two distinct morphs that differ in height (see above).
Abductees say that they recognize the leader of their abductors by its "demeanor."

David Ike
Their increased authority, height, and apparently more complex psychology have caused some abduction researchers to wonder if the taller morph is the only "Grey" type to be biologically alive and if the shorter "form" could be their artificially constructed robot or cyborg servants.
The Greys are said to be in conflict with the Reptilians over humans and Earth, while some suggest that the Greys are the slaves of the Reptilians (Reptoids) - however, the whole Reptilian conspiracy theory does not appear relate to contactee and abductee reports - and appears to be derived from the discredited books of the Jewish author Zecharia Sitchin - theories which have been popularised by David Ike (whose sanity must be questioned as he has stated that he is a "Son of the Godhead," interpreting "Godhead" as the "Infinite Mind - while Ike's wife claimed that she was an 'aspect of the Archangel Michael').

Greys and Nordics

Greys are often reported in conjunction with 'Nordics'.

Nordic Alien
Nordic aliens are reported to be a group of humanoid extraterrestrials, who resemble European racial images, or more specifically Nordic-Aryans.
Nordics are typically described as tall, (about two metres), with blond hair and blue eyes, and are commonly reported as being male.
Their skin is said to range from fair to tanned, they are reported to be in excellent physical shape, and they are usually described as wearing skin-tight clothing.
During the 1950s, many contactees, especially those in Europe, reported beings fitting this description.
Such claims became relatively less common in subsequent decades, as the grey alien supplanted the Nordic in most accounts of extraterrestrial encounters, but Nordic aliens are still reported.
Some sources refer to Nordic-type aliens as Pleiadians, referring to the Pleiades star cluster.
Some abductees state that they have seen Nordics inside the same craft as greys.
In such reports, the Nordics are often interpreted as leaders, with the greys as their subordinates.
It has been observed that white, Nordic extraterrestrials are those that are most revered, compared to other beings like the greys, and it has been suggested that abductees may view their experience of extraterrestrial contact as a means of articulating their racially based fears.

The Greys and Alien Abduction

Alien Abduction
© Copyright Peter Crawford 2012

Almost all reports of Greys are related the experiences of forcible abduction.
While "alien abduction" did not achieve widespread attention until the 1960s, there were many similar stories circulating decades earlier.
These early abduction-like accounts have been dubbed "paleo-abductions".

It would appear on initial investigation that alien contact and alien abductions have no basis on objective reality, however, an investigation of over 800 abductees indicated the 'ordinariness' of the population, which included a restaurant owner, several secretaries, a prison guard, college students, a university administrator, and several home-makers.
The majority of abductees do not appear to be deluded, confabulating, lying, self-dramatizing, or suffering from any mental illness. 

While psychopathology is indicated in a very few isolated alien abduction cases, assessment by both clinical examination and standardized tests has shown that, as a group, abduction experients are not different from the general population in term of psychopathology prevalence.
Some abduction reports are quite detailed.
An entire subculture has developed around the subject, with support groups, and a detailed explaination of the reasons for abductions.
It is suggested that the aliens have specific roles, origins, and motivations.
Abduction claimants do not always attempt to explain the phenomenon, but some take independent research interest in it themselves, and explain the lack of greater awareness of alien abduction as the result of either extraterrestrial or governmental interest in cover-up.

Alien Breeding Program - the reason behind abductions

It has been suggested that, because they are clones, the Greys suffer from genetic mutations, and diseases, but most problematic is the fact that they are slowly dying. 

Alien Cloning
This poses a problem, because Grey Aliens were created, as clones, without any reproductive organs
With the inability to re-produce sexually, the Grey Aliens face a 'time sensitive' issue that they have set out to solve.

Like any other being, they are interested in self preservation; however, they seem to have no moral or ethical issues in achieving that goal and appear to have set their minds on using human beings to correct their misfortune.  They therefore set out in search of a solution, and eventually found what they wanted and needed on Earth.

As a result it has been suggested that the Grey Aliens are currently abducting humans so they can prefect their own method of cloning, using human reproductive methods to achieve their goal. 
When abducted, many people report that they are probed and stuck with needles in and around their reproductive organs.
This is where Grey Aliens begin the process of extracting human DNA that allows Grey Aliens to cross breed their own DNA, and create Human/Alien Hybrids that will allow them to perpetuate their alien race.
Contrary to much speculation, Grey Aliens, with their Hybrid Program, are not set out to conquer our planet, but rather to solve their dying races' issue.

Signs of Abduction

A recent survey conducted by the Roper Organization asked American subjects certain questions designed to reveal abductees.
Their results showed that, back in 1998, 1 of every 50 subjects had experienced an alien abduction.
Typically, abductions are on-going and often begin in childhood (see above).
According to researchers, who have worked with over 400 abduction cases, the abduction phenomena includes some of the following details:
The Greys, can alter individuals perceptions of their surroundings.
They can create a kind of "virtual reality" in individual's minds and can appear under any number of guises and shapes.
Perhaps the mental "scanning" is used to select imagery to calm the victims, and substitute memories of the abduction. 
They can be present with individuals in an invisible state, and can make themselves only partially visible by this same ability.
Abductees receive marks on their bodies.
Scoops of flesh are mysteriously missing, and straight-line scars sometimes appear on victims' bodies.
Other marks include single punctures, multiple punctures, large bruises, three-and four fingered claw marks, and trangles of every possible sort.
Female abductees often suffer serious gynecological problems after their alien encounters, and sometimes these problems lead to cysts, tumors, cancer of the breast and uterus, and to hysterectomies.
Abductees report being scoffed at, jeered at, and threatened by their alien captors.
Painful genital and anal probes are performed - even on young children - and unknown fluids are injected into some abductees.
Abductees report being taken to underground facilities where they see grotesque hybrid creatures, nurseries of hybrid humanoid fetuses, and vats of colored liquid filled with parts of bodies.
Other abductees report seeing other humans in these facilities being drained of blood, mutilated, flayed, dismembered, and stacked like cords of wood.
Some abductees have been threatened that they, too, will end up in this condition if they don't co-operate with their alien captors.
Aliens have forced their human abductees to have sexual intercourse with aliens, and even with other abductees while groups of aliens observe these performances.
In some encounters, the aliens have sometimes disguised themselves in order to gain the cooperation of the abductee, appearing in such forms as Jesus, Blessed Mary, the Pope, certain celebrities, and even the dead spouses of the abductees.
The Grey's ability to scan minds allows them to assess individual's vulnerabilities and customize the abduction experience.
Aliens often make predictions of an imminent period of global chaos and destruction.
They say that a certain number of humans will be "rescued" from the planet in order to continue the species, either on another planet or back on earth after the destruction is over.
Many alien prophesies to contactees of the 50's and even today have failed to come true or appear to be outright lies.
Many contactees and abductees today are again delivering warnings of coming earth changes and disasters along with promises of help from aliens.
They feel "choosen" to deliver these messages to mankind.
Again the Grey's know their vulnerable egos can compel their cooperation.
The prophesies often create false hope and dependancy on their abductors, whom they know little about.
"I've come away from this experience convinced of one thing: if there aren't demons out there, there might as well be, because these guys are indistinguishable from demons. Indistinguishable. To see them, to look into their eyes, is to be less - forever..."

Whitley Strieber - 1993

Harvesting Souls ?

It has been suggested that the Greys are a race of biologic robots, created long ago by some superior civilization that they outlived.
Although they are self-aware, Greys are like the Tin Man in the Wizzard of Oz - only instead of a 'heart', Greys need our 'souls'.
As part of this theory, the abduction phenomenon is described in terms of a "Harvest" where potential human candidates are examined and nurtured for that moment when they will have their spirit essence transferred to a waiting Grey.
This theory has some interesting support from social scientists who open our eyes to cultural trends that can only be described as pure "evil."
The widespread introduction of materialism, free pornography and secularism seem to have no other reward but to destroy personal integrity and morality.
Poverty also enslaves the population and destroys the family structure.
All these trends diminish our spiritual strength, making souls vulnerable and ripe for the 'harvest'.
And all these cultural shifts could well be the fruit of abductions, and implanted ideologies.
