Chapter One
Recognizing the Signal
In the 1996 blockbuster motion picture Independence Day, hostile aliens come to Earth hell-bent on death and destruction. Resourceful humans band together, defeat the common enemy, and save Earth. This Hollywood scenario is not new -- it has dominated screen versions of alien contact since 1951 with the release of The Thing, in which a single alien wreaks havoc on a group of humans.
A more peaceful version of alien contact has also become a cultural staple. From 1951 and The Day the Earth Stood Still to 1977 and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, benign aliens have come to Earth to help humans. In this scenario, the aliens offer world leaders, scientists, and media representatives their assistance and cooperation. There is mutual respect: The humans expect to learn from the aliens' technological advancement, and the aliens expect to help the humans live in peace and cooperatively build a better world.
Still another vision of alien intervention in human life is the idea that they are coming to save specially chosen individuals from a rapidly approaching cataclysm. Cult groups who believe this have existed since the early 1950s. Members of the Heaven's Gate cult in 1997 were so convinced that a UFO would save them from the apocalypse and carry them to a higher physical and spiritual realm that thirty-nine members committed suicide to facilitate their rescue and transportation.
A careful examination of the UFO abduction phenomenon shows us that contact has, in fact, occurred -- but it bears no relationship to these scenarios. There has been no public meeting, no involvement of leadership, no press coverage. There has, as yet, been no assistance, no cooperation, no war, no death, and no apocalypse. The contact has been on the aliens' terms -- and in secret.
I never imagined such a scenario in 1966 when I first started to study the UFO phenomenon. Nor did I imagine that I would spend so many years of my adult life involved with the subject. I never imagined that I would have to tell my children not to talk about my research at their school because they could be unmercifully teased. I never dreamed that my wife would learn not to mention my interests at her workplace because her employer might think she was married to a madman, and that could hurt her career. When I talk about the subject to my colleagues in the academic community, I know they think that my intellectual abilities are seriously impaired. I find myself intertwined with a subject that I have learned to dislike and even to fear.
I am first and foremost a professor of history specializing in twentieth-century America. I think, read, and teach about the past, but the study of the UFO phenomenon has thrust me into speculation about the future. The study of history proves that predicting events is an extremely unreliable and usually futile task. Yet, ironically, I now find myself in the uncomfortable position of trying to divine the future.
My research began in one of the leading bastions of historical inquiry -- the Department of History at the University of Wisconsin, where I was a graduate student. My major professor was the legendary Merle Curti, who founded the field of intellectual history. When Curti retired, I studied under Paul Conkin, who applied stringent analytical procedures and evidentiary criteria to every research topic. I immersed myself in the study of UFOs and received my Ph.D. under Conkin's direction. My doctoral dissertation focused on the controversy over unidentified flying objects in America from the perspective of intellectual, social, and military history. In researching this topic, I spent weeks at Maxwell Air Force Base and the Library of Congress, reading government documents about UFOs. I traveled the country to interview some of the most important civilian and military UFO researchers. In 1975, Indiana University Press published an expanded version of my dissertation as The UFO Controversy in America.
My early research concentrated on sightings of UFOs. My working hypothesis was that if careful analysis of the sightings showed that UFOs were extraterrestrial, it would be the most important scientific discovery of all time. On the other hand, if analysis concluded that the objects were simply misidentification of conventional phenomena and the products of overwrought human imagination, the phenomenon would be relegated to the history of popular culture. It was one or the other. To conceive of UFOs as representing a potential alien takeover was to be either impossibly prescient or foolish. I was neither.
Thus, I joined the other researchers whose objective it was to determine if witnesses were sighting anomalous, artificially constructed, and intelligently controlled vehicles. We scrutinized photos, motion picture footage, radar traces, soil samples, and other residue purportedly generated by UFOs. Collectively we amassed hundreds of thousands of sighting reports from around the world. We worked out a methodology to determine if witnesses were credible. I became a field investigator for the now defunct Aerial Phenomena Research Organization, interviewing puzzled witnesses, knocking on doors searching for others, and publishing the results of my investigations in UFO journals.
By the early 1970s, the UFO research community had collected so many sighting reports that we found ourselves with an uncomfortably huge database. We knew the time of a UFO sighting, its duration, movements, color changes, and number of witnesses, as well as the object's effects upon the environment, automobiles, electrical equipment, animals, and humans. Each of these reports were carefully investigated and documented; in many cases, there were multiple witnesses to lend credence to the evidence. The leading UFO researcher of his time, J. Allen Hynek, called this enormous body of information and reports an "embarrassment of riches."
Of course, there were internal debates over specific cases and fierce arguments with debunkers, but these could not discredit the legitimacy of the phenomenon. By the late 1970s, the evidence for UFOs as a truly anomalous phenomenon was so massive that I, along with most UFO researchers, could no longer deny that witnesses were seeing something extraordinary and probably not from Earth.
As part of our research, we of course thought about the ramifications of contact between humans and alien species. We theorized about how such contact might affect religion, government institutions, and the place of humans in the universe, but we devoted little thought to whether direct contact was already taking place, or whether the UFO occupants had hostile intentions. There seemed to be little reason to think along those lines. The UFOs behaved as if they wanted to keep their distance from us. They avoided contact on formal level. They were not making mass landings. They would fly about for a few seconds or minutes and then vanish. Their apparent "shyness" suggested neutrality, or at least nonhostility, toward humans.
Nevertheless, curiosity and questions about the motivation of the aliens remained just beneath the surface of UFO research. But because there was so little information, most researchers did not spend a lot of time in useless speculation. And the more we learned about the occupants of UFOs, the more difficult it was to understand their motivation. The UFO and occupant reports that began to increase in number in the 1960s and 1970s were truly bizarre. The objects chased cars, disappeared in midair, and left marks on people; they operated in secret for no apparent reason. Witnesses sometimes said that they saw UFO "occupants" outside the UFOs. Occasionally they reported coming across humanoids (the word "alien" being too dramatic and fringy) near a landed UFO who would paralyze the hapless humans and then inspect them. The humanoids were also seen "repairing" a UFO or digging in the ground; sometimes they appeared to be looking over the terrain, or collecting plants. Some of the occupants' activity was consistent with the hypothesis that they were curious about earthly flora and fauna. At other times they engaged in more baffling behavior. For example, they would pay no attention to a witness, or they would suddenly appear holding a small box in front of a witness and then disappear.
The accounts of these activities were a challenge to researchers who tried to make sense of them. Our mindset was not, however, that the humanoids had any hostile intentions -- in fact, they appeared to be examining, surveying, and gaining knowledge.
When abductions were first reported, as in 1961 with the Barney and Betty Hill case, they seemed to fit into the hypothesis that the aliens were primarily curious. Yet, although Barney and Betty Hill were not typical of the notorious 1950s "contactee" charlatans who tried to make money off their tall tales, one could never be sure whether they had invented their story.
As other abduction reports surfaced, UFO researchers were suspicious about the possibility of fabrication. It was easy for me to be skeptical. Most abductees had little to present in the way of evidence for the reality of their experiences. Unlike some UFO sighters, they had no photos, no radar traces, no movies, and usually no other witnesses. Their accounts were hypnotically retrieved, which was an obvious impediment to believability.
Because of the extreme nature of the abductees' claims, I stood on the sidelines while our knowledge about the phenomenon began to mount. The Barney and Betty Hill case was typical. They encountered the now "standard" gray aliens who communicated telepathically, gave the Hills an "examination," and seemed interested in human reproduction. Afterward, the Hills experienced a form of amnesia, and their memories of the incident had to be recovered with the use of hypnosis. The Hill case was serialized in a major weekly magazine, was the subject of a best-selling book, and became the best-known abduction case in history.
There was an even earlier abduction, which happened to Antonio Villas Boas in Brazil in...

Présentation de l'éditeur

The world's foremost academic expert on UFOs and alien abductions provides the first evidence-based explanation of a mystery that has perplexed scientists for decades.
Based on more than 700 hypnotic-regression interviews with alien abductees and a Roper survey of 6,000 adults, The Threat reveals why the aliens are here and what they want, explains why their agenda has been kept secret, and exposes their frightening plans for earth and its inhabitants. In a direct, authoritative challenge to researchers who believe the abduction phenomenon is essentially benevolent and spiritually uplifting, Professor David M. Jacobs proves that there is a far more disturbing and potentially dangerous plan underway, with possible alien domination at its core.
In this remarkably well-researched and well-written book, Professor Jacob has added a new complexity and depth to our knowledge of the UFO and abduction phenomena. The secret alien agenda revealed here is ominous, but it must be confronted before it is too late.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Jacobs is probably right 4 février 1998
Par - Publié sur
Dr Jacobs has written a profoundly disturbing work. Based on over thirty years of careful, academic research and over seven hundred hypnotic inductions with purported abductees, 'The Threat' is a book that must be taken seriously. Given the author's careful methodology, it is impossible for us to dismiss the hundreds of memories he elicited under hypnosis as mere confabulations. His careful discussion of the false memory syndrome points out that: 1. Abductees remember recent experiences, not just childhood events. 2 Abductees often have indirect corroboration of events. 3.Abductees frequently recall events without the aid of a hypnotist. 4.Abductees are often found to be physically missing during the reported abduction. 5. About twenty percent of abductions include two or more people who see each other during the event. 6. Unlike victims of FMS, abductees seldom experience disintegration of their personal lives after they become aware of what has occurred. We must therefore conclude that most elicited memories of abductions correspond to real events. Hence about two percent of the world's population is taking an involuntary part in a vast alien breeding program, designed to produce alien-human hybrids, which is now close to completion. These hybrids, Dr Jacobs argues cogently, are destined to replace us in the very near future. While some of the abductees themselves may be kept, like zoo animals, to provide breeding stock, the rest of humanity would appear to be completely dispensable. This scenario, closer to the TV series 'V' than to 'Independence Day' is one which few Ufologists have been willing to consider seriously, because of its terrifying nature, though my own research also drove me to this conclusion some years ago. Given that we have no defenses against the aliens, this book might well have been entitled 'The End of Humanity'. It is safe to say, unfortunately, that cognitiive dissonance will prevent all but a handful of us from taking Dr Jacobs' thesis seriously. 'Unconscious of their doom, the little victims play'. In spite of the ravages we have inflicted upon the planet and each other, I find this thought every bit as disquieting as this nightmarish book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally, a UFO researcher with an open mind 17 août 2001
Par A Reader - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
If you read many of the UFO books, you will find that each writer has a narrow focus which makes that writer of ufology special.
Many want to make the UFO's angels, messengers, demons, leprechauns, extraterrestrials, aliens, pleidians, etc.
David Jacobs brings the reader through his first research where he almost began a narrow focus then to the current state of his research experience. He takes all the consistent reporting and analyzes them.
He forms his theory from decades of case analyses. He did not discard portions which did not fit his theories (as many other noted Ufologists).
I highly recommend this book. It gives a more complete and concise summary of mutliple decades of UFO research.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Survival of the fittest? 11 mars 2001
Par Generic Name - Publié sur
A UFO book that doesn't hesitate to scare the reader. The Threat isn't about benevolent "space brothers" or the like, but about self-serving, secretive aliens who abduct people against their will. The aliens, according to Dr. Jacobs, are engaged in a selective breeding program to produce alien/human hybrids, hybrids that will eventually be so human-like that we won't be able to tell the difference. Further, Dr. Jacobs believes that the aliens are planning to infiltrate our society, for reasons as yet unknown, but sinister in their appearance. Hence, the title of the book.
If you consider yourself a serious student of UFO-ology, then I strongly recommend this book, otherwise you're not getting the whole picture.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A MUST-READ--best book on alien abduction 21 décembre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
Out of all the theories that try to make sense and explain alien abductions (and UFOs in general), none is so complete, thorough, logical, and scholarly as Jacobs'.
In the beginning, he points out why the alien abduction phenomenon is clearly real and why it isn't true that the many abduction stories (all over the world) are simply made up, dreamed of, caused by hypnosis, or caused by psychological or other problems (and how they differ from false "repressed memories" which sometimes occurs under incompetent hypnosis). He later analyses the many stories and comes up with a rational theory that makes perfect sense. All the strange events and procedures the aliens perform during abductions as well as the secrecy of the phenomenon make perfect sense after you read this book.
Unlike others who view the abduction phenomenon in a spiritual or religious sense and automatically assume that aliens and abductions are benevolent and are here to help or better mankind or are here from a higher spiritual realm (he explains why people believe this and how it is incorrect), he thoroughly investigates and looks at the UFO and abduction phenomenon logically, rationally and scientifically. When you put all the pieces of the puzzle together, the abductions make sense and the aliens intentions become clear. Their intentions are not benevolent, in our best interests, or to help or better mankind. Far from it, they have a dangerous and malevolent plan underway. I agree with the reviewer who said that not only should people interested in the UFO and paranormal phenomenon read it but everyone should.
UFOS and the abduction phenomenon are real(for evidence for, and an overview of UFOs and aliens also read Alien Agenda) . There are just way too many stories performed by unbiased and competent hypnosis (Jacobs explains how the aliens prevent people from remembering it, at least under normal circumstances), all over the world, and sometimes even with physical evidence (not much-the aliens are very careful), such as implants, markings on the ground,strange medical evidence, body marks and bruises, persons missing for a period of time, etc.

After so many abduction accounts, you'd think it would be clear that these beings are not benevolent, that they aren't spiritual beings from another dimension, that they aren't kindly "space brothers", and that "new-ageish" theories such as that is simply the result of wishful thinking.

For those who say it's impossible to travel light-years from even the nearest star, well, it may be impossible for us to do it with our method of space travel , but that doesn't mean a much more technologically advanced civilization hasn't found a way to do it. Two or three centuries ago we thought it would be impossible to fly or go to the moon. I think this is the best book on alien abduction because it makes sense of it. The aliens have a reason for their secrecy, and it's not to protect us, but to hide their intentions. Read this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Abduction Enigma: Solved? 31 octobre 2001
Par Edward E. Muller - Publié sur
Hi. I have been studying the UFO and Abduction phenomenon for about 20 years. Even though Dr. Jacobs offers a grim vision of the future, he has put more pieces of the Abduction Puzzle together than any other investigator. He has systematically divided the alien's purposes and role here on Earth and the information he brings forth is difficult to swallow, specially the part of Hybridization Programs and Interaction with Humans. If Dr. Jacobs is right, then these visitors have their own personal intentions but we mustn't forget that there are many different ET civilization that have interacted and are interacting with Humanity and not all have the same Reproductive Purposes. In general, this book helped me acquire one more piece of the ET Puzzle. Not a bad book. Dr. Jacobs has set forth an interesting theory: Genetic Manipulation of the Human Species.
