Retired psychology professor is convinced extraterrestrial life exists
Retired Montreal psychology professor Don Crosbie Donderi, who spent 47 years at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, is convinced extraterrestrial life exists.
Mr. Donderi was recently interviewed by Canadian newspaper National Post about his new book — UFOs, ETs, and Alien Abductions, a Scientist looks at the Evidence — that will be published in May this year.
Even though he admits to the fact that physical evidence of alien abductions is lacking, he believes the phenomenon is substantial enough to warrant an analysis from a psychological standpoint.
Q. From a psychological perspective, when we hear about people getting abducted by aliens, do you not think that on the balance of probabilities that a more plausible explanation is that there is an element of self delusion, or waking nightmares at play here? Do you not think there is a more plausible explanation for these reports than the idea that there is an alien species coming down to Earth to kidnap humans?
A. That is a plausible explanation for many of the reports, but not all of the reports, I agree with you. I also said evidence for abduction is that is a balance of probable evidence, not beyond reasonable doubt.
Q. Don’t you think the balance of probability favours a much less glamorous, much more human explanation that our perceptions are flawed?
