Bud Hopkins, Deborah discussed on Bob Bain's Farside: Paranormal Podcast
Now, with your alien abduction experience, just to get back that for a moment. I know you've had other children now two sons you said. Yes. Have they been experiencing anything? If they have as adults, they are not telling me about it. I know that it scares both of them to the point where they don't talk about it. And don't want to talk about it, don't want to ever hear me talk about it. When they were children, we didn't discuss it in front of them because I didn't want to number one scare them and number two contaminate their thought. You know what I mean? But they did have some strange experiences as children, which was so upsetting to me. Like I said, I don't believe they are now. I do have a granddaughter who is 9. And when she was 5 or 6, I think maybe she started talking about the aliens in the window and having panic attacks and waking up screaming every night and I was devastated and my son was horrified and at one point he didn't even want her coming to the house here with me till they could get this under control and he blacked out her windows and bought her radio, all kinds of stuff. And finally, she kind of outgrew it, you know what I mean? As far as talking about it and stuff goes, I don't know, I don't say anything. So I'm not quite sure where that is, but I know all lord, please don't let them be met. She's exactly like me. That child looks like me. She's smart as a whip. You know, and I'm just, you know, I was terrified that something was going on. But I don't know. I'm hoping not, you know? Do you think these alien experiences are happening more to women, girls, versus boys, man, or what? I'm thinking it's probably about 50 50. 50. Yeah, I'm thinking it's an equal opportunity nuisance. Whatever you want to call it. Intrusion. Yeah, I was just thinking that if this was a breeding program, then they would be targeting the women population more than the man, but you never know because there are some experts as you are aware who feel that there's a breeding program going on. I'm aware of that. And I don't know. I don't have answers like that. All I can tell people is what I remember and, you know, I have my theories on occasion, but they're just theories. I have no, I don't know. You know, time will tell, I suppose. Yes, Deborah, definitely. No, what I found interesting is that you've had these experiences ever since you were a child, and they drew you, not further away from the paranormal, but closer to it. Most people would try and hide away that you didn't. Why? Well, what's so intriguing that something that scared you, something that might have ruined your life to a small degree, and if it wasn't for bud Hopkins, it might still be shattered, who knows? But what is it that brought you back? Well, one aspect of my personality is that when something scares me, I want to know every single thing about it that I can possibly know in that helps me to not be so afraid because I think knowledge is power. And so therefore, early on, once I got under.
