EP#41: Betty & Barney Hill; Kathleen Marden

www.Conundrumstv.blogspot.com Scientific Ufologist Kathleen Marden earned her B.A. in Social Work at the University of New Hampshire in 1971. Thereafter, she entered into graduate studies in Education at the University of Cincinnati, and later, at U.N.H. She is a currently UFO & abduction writer and lecturer investigating some of the very substantial cases in the annals of UFO and abduction history. As the niece of Betty and Barney Hill, Kathy had the opportunity to observe and learn from many of the great late abduction researchers in action. As such, she has been able to present substantial evidence that the Betty and Barney Hill UFO abduction was quite possibly a veridical experience. She also takes to task the pseudo-skeptics who fail to do their research but disseminate false and misleading information with regard to several of the high profile, substantial evidence abduction cases, and the hoaxers and attention seekers who blur the lines between fantasy and reality and bring impropriety to legitimate UFO research and investigation. Kathy is currently a full time researcher, writer and lecturer. Several of her articles have been published in UFO magazines. Additionally, she has written papers on the use and misuse of hypnosis in abduction investigations, the ethical use of hypnosis in abduction investigations, the comparative analysis of Betty and Barney Hills' statements made under hypnotic regression versus Betty's dream account of abduction, a critical analysis of the Harvard false memory study of self reported UFO experiencers, and ?The Conundrum of Alien Abduction? (available from MUFON). Her 2007 book Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience, with coauthor Stanton T. Friedman is a case study of her aunt and uncle, Betty and Barney Hills' 1961 UFO close encounter and abduction. Autographed copies of her 2010 book Science Was Wrong (with Stan Friedman) are now available at her website. You can also find them in the "Science" section at bookstores. 2011 brought a new book, UFOs and Aliens, with a chapter on alien abduction by Kathy.
