UFO researcher and abductee, Jim Moroney discussed his profound ET encounter and how aliens are waiting in the wings to save humanity from a crisis that awaits us. Recalling his 1987 abduction experience, he described the entities on the ship as having large heads with no hair, very thin necks, and leathery skin. Unlike most traditional accounts of ET abductions, Moroney said that these creatures had blue eyes, as opposed to the commonly cited black eyes, and also spoke English to him in "very short sentences."
Moroney explained that, at the onset of the abduction, he was initially very angry about being taken. However, one of the entities stepped forward and spoke to him, making him "instantly calm." From that point forward, he followed their commands as if he were hypnotized. Moroney was taken to a room where he underwent a series of medical procedures that were "so horrific for me that I thought I was going to die," and subsequently blacked out. Upon regaining consciousness, he met a taller, feminine being who said "we don't understand your anger." Feeling guilty, Moroney tried to apologize, but was enveloped by an "immense feeling of love and compassion" before he could finish speaking. The abduction ended soon thereafter and, upon returning to where the craft had found him, he felt a sense of "camaraderie and friendship" with the ETs.
On what the alien agenda might be, Moroney theorized that it essentially amounts to an "intervention" by the ETs. Based on the average human lifespan of 75 years and considering the fact that the UFO phenomenon has been ongoing, in earnest, since the mid-1940's, he speculated that there may be a major event due to happen sometime in the next ten years. "There's a calamity that's going to be unfolding and I believe it's going to be man made," Moroney said, indicating that he felt such an event was a nuclear war. Despite the popular notion that the ETs would step in to stop such a conflict, Moroney expressed the belief that they would not do so until the human race was on the brink of extinction.
In the first hour, author Christina Duminiak talked about her research into afterlife contacts that children often receive from loved ones. She marveled that while adults have more subtle experiences, "children were actually seeing, hearing, and talking to the spirits." According to Duminiak, there are even accounts of children who remember a time before their birth when they played with deceased family members, ostensibly when both parties were "on the other side." Based on her research, she said that most of these encounters are reported by children up to age 4 and that from about 5 to 9 years old they begin to taper off, seemingly ceasing by the age seventeen. She theorized that this cessation of the abilities is likely due to social factors which discourage such a gift.
