Abducted or just missing? Jan 25, 2020 4:14:49 GMT

I first heard about Mr Paulides 2 or 3 years ago and read one of his books and several website articles by him and about the so-called 411 Missing events. To me it was fairly obvious that he would like to put the blame on something 'weird', and I understand he has mentioned Bigfoot, other paranormal things, , and even aliens .
I don't discuss Paulides anymore. He's become too much of a distraction. He can speculate as he wishes. That makes him exactly no different than anyone else. I simply don't wish to argue about the man. You can probably contact him and question him yourself. I don't know Mr. Paulides. Never met him.
Correct me if I am wrong on this. In my mind I would say the vast majority are strange accidents which happen btw all the time.
What do you mean by a "strange accident"? What constitutes a "strange accident"? Regarding the case I posted earlier, for example, a woman goes to Florida on a business trip and shares a room with another woman in her party. One night, this roommate wakes up at 4 am and sees the front door wide open. This was a very dangerous and irresponsible thing to do. Anybody could have walked into that apartment and raped or killed the roommate as she slept. She checks on this woman and finds she is gone. By daylight, she has not returned so she reports it. Police review the hotel's surveillance tapes and see this woman walking down one of the hotel stairways shoeless at 2 am completely by herself, then she is seen no more. For 2 1/2 days, she is missing and then her body is found in a nearby lake. Her husband back in their home state said she had no history of sleepwalking or any kind mental problems. She was perfectly normal when her roommate went to bed but then she walks out of their room barefoot and leaving the door standing wide open and just walks to a lake and drowns. Now, what "strange accident" was that? That just plain doesn't make any sense.
Or you take the skier in New York state, skiing down a mountainside and vanishes. No one has a clue about where he could have gone. Six days later, he turns up over 2000 miles away in California still in his ski outfit and no memory of how he got there. Even stranger, he had had a recent haircut but no barber ever came forward to claim to have cut the man's hair. Certainly he or she would have remembered a man coming into their establishment in a ski outfit. Moreover, the man had no vehicle. He couldn't have driven. What strange accident was this?
Do we need to look for bizarre explanations?
When you can't explain the "strange accident," then I'd say you have to go commando.

The vanishings that are considered inexplicable have such explanations as the work of the serial killer weeded out. In these particular vanishings, there are no signs of a human abductor. Dogs can't even get a scent no DNA is left behind, etc.
My problem with Paulides was his need to look for paranormal answers to satisfy his personal beliefs. Again if I have misunderstood his position please point me to an article in print where he denies this.
I don't care what his position is. I thought I explained all this in an earlier post. I'm not even using his cases anymore. No one can accuse me of leaving out info like the do him. I present the cases exactly as I find them even giving the links and they still do not make sense.
I think we are dealing with strange accidents from time to time
Again, you're going to have to define this term. It seems you're hiding a lot of inexplicable things behind this term so you don't have to explain them.
...life and nature can be very weird on it's own without needing to resort to ' unknown creatures' and 'aliens', etc.
This doesn't explain anything. 175 years ago, astronomers couldn't account for why the sun didn't burn itself out. They assumed a huge amount of dust and meteoric debris was constantly falling into the sun even though they had to know how patently ridiculous this was. I'm sure someone positing a fusion process would have been told that we can explain how the sun maintains its mass without needing to resort to weird processes unknown to science and for which there was not a shred of scientific evidence.
