Dr. Richard Boylan (PhD) rose to fame in the nineties as one of the more prominent alien abduction researchers. He was one of the speakers at the 1992 MIT conference on alien abduction, where he admitted that he, too, had been previously abducted.

In recent years, Richard Boylan has become a controversial figure for several reasons:

  1. Boylan claims that there are no negative abductions, and that negative experiences are the result of the personality of the abductee, rather than of the actual experience. (In other words, only people with psychological issues perceive the abductions as negative). (Needless to say, that most abduction researchers do not agree with this).
  2. Boylan also claims to have been nominated Earth's Ambassador to the Star Nations.
  3. Often Boylan seems to gain - and rely on - information from questionable Remote Viewing sources.

As a result, his credibility has suffered.
