The Alien Abduction Files: The Most Startling Cases of Human-Alien Contact Ever Reported by Kathleen Marden and Denise Stoner is a compendium of eyewitness stories and studies which attest to contact with aliens over a period of many years. The most extensive analysis was done in the Marden-Stoner study.

Fifty self-identified experiencers of an abduction participated in the Marden-Stoner study along with a control group of 25. A detailed questionnaire was given to the experiencers broken down by demographics, abduction memories, paranormal experiences, emotional responses and physiological responses. The answers were compared to responses from a control group who had not experienced an abduction. Experiencers had a range of experiences
not found in the control group.

According to the authors, eyewitnesses have seen spaceships, insectoids and experienced unexplainable time warps and the inability to account for their whereabouts for many hours. The aliens were reported to have just eyes with no nose or mouth. Their bodies were a hue of blue and green. Eyewitnesses also remember that the spacecraft came within one thousand feet prior to the abduction. Electronic equipment malfunctioned and paranormal activity occurred near the homes of people who either were abducted or saw alien forms.

The authors report that abductees were taken more than once. Each person reported having been abducted in a group. About 60% of the abductees reported having been examined on an alien craft. A full 88% reported paranormal activity near their home, as well as the receipt of telepathic messages. Some even possessed an unusual gift of healing after their encounter with aliens. Approximately 80% reported new psychic abilities after the abduction. Many abductees awoke with unusual burns on their bodies, puncture wounds and bruises.

The authors reproduced drawings of the experiences of abductees. The drawings consisted of UFO sightings, an insectoid, the aliens in motion and aliens with human forms. The authors provide a very extensive bibliography at the end of the book.

The Alien Abduction Files is a fascinating collection of stories taken from actual eyewitnesses. This is testimonial evidence. Readers need to be able to access other forms of evidence like real or tangible objects. Some of this evidence may exist in Area 51, and in cave drawings which depict flying objects and strange human-like forms.

Until real evidence can be accessed and reported on, the story is still a work in progress. The authors have produced a credible start with regard to proving the existence of aliens, subject to the accumulation of real evidence like crashed spaceships, alien autopsies and implements from other worlds. There could be other correlating evidence from the gospels, the writings of the prophets, Indian folklore or the Dead Sea Scrolls. Once humankind explores places like the Moon or Mars, there could be supplemental evidence of aliens. Only the passage of time and future space explorations can provide more definitive answers.
