One of the barriers to accepting stories of alien abduction is the complete lack of unambiguous physical evidence showing the events were real and not a bizarre fantasy. But that may no longer be true. In July 1992, an Australian abductee named Peter Khoury had an encounter in his own home with two odd but humanlike female beings. The experience was brief but possessed some disturbing sexual aspects, and afterward Khoury found a strand of hair wrapped around his penis. Recognizing this as a rare opportunity to test the claim that aliens are creating hybrids composed of both alien and human genetic material, ufologist Chalker obtained the sample and submitted it to a team of biochemists for forensic DNA analysis. Two separate tests confirmed that the hair was human but had some peculiar traits, which Chalker admits isn't enough to prove an extraterrestrial hybrid program; but it's sufficiently weird to warrant further study. He reviews some other abduction cases that involve sexual contact and provides the Khoury DNA test results in an appendix. George EberhartCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
