Confirmation: The Hard Evidence of Aliens Among Us

Overview

Warning: After you read this book you will believe in alien life.

The possible existence of extraterrestrial life is a phenomenon that has sparked more debate, controversy, fascination, and passion than any in recent history. Outpourings of UFO sightings, alien abductions, and covert government activity point to a truth which-as much as some people would like to-simply won't die.

Overview

Warning: After you read this book you will believe in alien life.

The possible existence of extraterrestrial life is a phenomenon that has sparked more debate, controversy, fascination, and passion than any in recent history. Outpourings of UFO sightings, alien abductions, and covert government activity point to a truth which-as much as some people would like to-simply won't die. Now, in this provocative new book, bestselling author and UFOlogist Whitley Strieber boldly explores the vast territory of alien encounters, uncovering the most conclusive evidence of all: physical evidence that aliens may really be here.

Marvel as Whitley Strieber tells his own compelling story-and those of countless others-while you discover:

-Shocking new close encounters, many involving groups of people

-Thousands of sightings worldwide, many captured on video

-Shocking evidence of five mysterious implants surgically removed from human bodies

-And much, much more!

The most compelling question in the universe has remained unanswered for centuries. Now, finally, there is...Confirmation.

With a gallery of thought-provoking photos!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Strieber makes a strong case for a serious commitment from science and government to investigate abduction phenomenon." —Publishers Weekly

"In 1957 I commanded the Army's missile firing range at White Sands Proving Ground in New Mexico. During an 'alien encounter' the message that they were offering mankind, 'a new world if you can take it,' was conveyed to me. For forty years, I mulled what it meant. Finally, it took an intellect like Whitley Strieber in his new book Confirmation to give its meaning to me and the world." —Col. Philip J. Corso (Retired), United States Army Intelligence and author of The Day After Roswell

"This book is an important wake-up call for scientist and nonscientist alike. Whitley Strieber has carefully and objectively shown that reliable evidence supports the strong possibility we are being sited by some sort of nonhuman intelligence. Scrupulously staying within the limits of reasonable interpretation of the data, he makes a solid case for the urgent need for a deeper investigation into all aspects of the UFO phenomenon by competent professionals in many different fields." —Jack Kasher, physicist, the University of Omaha

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Are they mass hallucinations or have a quarter of a million people experienced a paralyzing possession of their bodies by aliens? Most alleged abductees suffer from severe post-encounter trauma, and Strieber writes that, for them, "to ignore the challenge to look at self and life in a new way is to descend into total psychological and spiritual chaos." In fact, overcoming their fear is, he contends, an opportunity for spiritual awakening. In this latest follow-up to Communion, the mega-bestselling account of his own abductions, Strieber reports on recent amateur film and video footage that allegedly show unknown spacecraft flying at extraordinary speeds with unheard of aeromechanics. Cogent testimonies drawn from interviews with seemingly sane and normal people reveal detailed accounts of levitation, sexual molestation, time travel and ongoing relationships with aliens that induce perceptual disruption to their lives. The most convincing of his evidence are the bizarre implantsslivers of silicon and tiny t-bars of metallic composite believed to be transmittersthat, Strieber says, have been removed from abductees' ear canals, calf muscles and nasal passages. While it's not conclusive that these implants are alien artifacts, their sophisticated composite and their manner of forced entry into the body demonstrate uncommon technical skill and cast doubt on accusations of self-mutilation. Strieber makes a strong case for a serious commitment from science and government to investigate abduction phenomenon, be it real or psychological dysfunction. Author tour. (May)
Library Journal
The author of several popular sellers on close-encounter experiences (e.g., Communion: A True Story, Morrow, 1987), Strieber focuses on mysterious implants found in many people who reputedly have experienced a close encounterincluding himself. These implants are the so-called hard evidence referred to in the book's subtitle, though Strieber admits that "the conclusive evidence has not yet been gathered." He doesn't even claim that his experiences are real, only that they felt real to him. Although Strieber tries to sound skeptical and maintain a degree of scientific objectivity, his New Age philosophy becomes clear in the last chapter. Basically, he views close-encounter phenomena as something for humans to embrace and not fear. If we are being visited by highly evolved aliens, Strieber believes they may be trying to help us evolve as well. Web addresses of six "best UFO sites" are included, as well as a short list of "classic" UFO books. Recommended for public libraries, especially where Strieber's other titles have proved popular. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 1/98.]Gary D. Barber, SUNY at Fredonia Lib.
School Library Journal
YA-Reports of UFOs and accounts of abductions by aliens have been the subject of public fascination for half a century. In Confirmation, Strieber speaks for many when he complains that "The lack of authoritative answers has meant that hucksters and false experts have been exploiting public ignorance." Pointing out that concerned laypeople such as himself are not qualified or equipped to study the subject under acceptably rigorous scientific protocols, he argues that it is the responsibility of the scientific community to carry the issue beyond its present state of fraud and urban folklore. The book is organized into three sections, describing the three types of "hard" evidence Strieber feels most warrant scientific study: UFO sightings (unfortunately, the usual fuzzy UFO photos detract from his argument); close encounters; and implants that seem to have been placed in people's bodies during the close encounters. In an appendix, a Vatican representative discusses "Extraterrestrials and Christianity" in the context of recent scientific inquiry. "Further Reading" lists Strieber's recommended "classics" in UFO literature, as well as the Internet sites he finds to be the most trustworthy. Confirmation offers startling stories, fascinating speculations, intriguing questions, and clear explanations of new scientific theories.-Christine C. Menefee, Fairfax County Public Library, VA

    Incredibly Thoughtful

    Here is a guy who finally takes his work seriously. As being an abductee himself, he has set out to make an effort to help other troubled abductees, and uncover the truth. He deals with implants, UFOs, and other shocking evidence. He was once skeptical, and now believes, and this books tells why. See the topic in a completely scientific way, as he sets out to try and find the truth.
