Do you fear being abducted by aliens?

10 Answers
I don't. Do you? If so, why? And, in case you can't tell---this is a serious question!

I do not fear being abducted by aliens. I am not sure why anyone would waste time fearing something that 1) may never happen and 2) they can't change if it does occur. I read in a book about "real" alien abduction stories that aliens will not abduct people who can not psychologically handle the event. Apparently, according to the abductee in the book aliens only choose people who would be open to the experience. If that is truly the case then anyone who would be psychologically damaged by the experience would not be chosen. Other books relating "true" abduction stories paint a more sinister picture of the aliens. No one can be 100% sure.
It would be foolish to believe that we are the only intelligent life in the universe or even that we are the most intelligent in the universe or all of existence. It would be equally foolish to worry about the what if factor.

I am not very afraid of it happening. I don't think there is a very big chance of it. Sometimes I wonder about it. I also don't have any time lapses. Strange things have happened. I don't think I would like the testing procedures either at all. I would not want to be stuck in a zoo or other on another planet. I guess they don't really do that.

I have been told by a psychic that I was on another planet in another life. I think she probably told that to a lot of people though. You know how that may go. There was a UFO sighting around Connecticut in the small town where I was born when I was little that I found out about later on the Internet. Actually I like to think of the aliens as being quite advanced. They seemed to have wanted to save the planet.

No I do not fear being abducted by aliens. I know fear and stress are bad for my health. The odds of being abducted by aliens are slim. There is a much better chance the fear would cause a life threatening illness and kill me. Stress can make you sick of even kill you. I know of someone that was worried she was going to lose her job. The stress made her so sick she was hospitalized.

Stress and fear should be brief. In the moment of being abducted I would be afraid. Until that happens I do not fear them. Stress and fear can be useful but they can also hurt you.

There are many fears that I have in life, but I can honestly say that I have never once felt afraid of alien abduction. I am skeptical that aliens have been visiting Earth because there would be more evidence if they had been.

I will say that if I saw a UFO land in my yard then I would be scared, but also intrigued. If they managed to travel such a long distance through space then they would have to be far more advanced than us and I would be powerless to stop them.

If they did arrive, perhaps they came in peace and imagine what they could teach us.

No, I think this possibility does exist but is not likely. There are just so many people on the planet that if aliens wanted to abduct anyone the chances of it being me would be like hitting the lottery so I don't think about it.

I also do not think that if there are aliens visiting our planet that that automatically means they are way more advanced than us. Their understanding of space travel while more advanced would not necessarily translate to being more intelligent/advanced in all other areas.

If there were aliens who could visit our planet, they would have to be so much more advanced than us that we couldn't really begin to even understand them. Consequently, if an alien did want to abduct me there would be little I could do about it. I also cannot imagine an alien having any interest in me personally. I am a small ant among ants.

Depends on how the abduction will be taking place. IF they will suddenly attack and scare me then yes, i fear being abducted by aliens.

But if they would ask me to a date and will introduce themselves properly beforehand, then no, i would not fear meeting aliens.

If aliens are in fact real then yes, I would be afraid of being abducted. Being taken against one's will for scientific experiments is not cool. I don't believe in aliens, though. So it's not really something I worry about very much.

Of course you will be a bit intimidated because you do not know if these beings are evil or are going to harm you but the best thing to do is stay calm and try to understand what they are doing.

Not at all. There is a lot more unpleasant things which can happen more likely than being abducted by aliens.
