A ufological thing that I’m wrapping up

Luis R Gonzalez provided an item recently that provokes me to comment on it
One comes from his extensive rumination on the Peter Khoury “abduction” which I’ve provided online here (below).
In conjunction with that odd case, I mentioned to Luis that his copy of a Peter Khoury diary excerpt brought me to mentioning handwriting analysis, something that I wrote a term paper on in college when handwriting analysis was a hot tool for businesses during their hiring practices.
Luis told me he thought handwriting analysis was pseudo-science. He is correct, to a point.
Handwriting analysis, graphology, did enter a nadir phase but has rebounded as a business tool today.
But Luis’ opinion holds some weight, even with me. Some aspects of handwriting analysis borders on pseudo-science, the specification that certain letter construction shows the mental configuration of the person whose handwriting is under scrutiny.
But M. N. Bunker – note the name! – formed a handwriting discipline he called “grapho-analysis” to distinguish it from graphology.
(This mimicked the separation of Freud’s psychoanalysis from the psychology of his peers.)
Grapho-analysis is beholden to the gestaltian view that one’s total handwriting provides a clue to that person’s personality and/or character.
Now you can eschew the whole idea of handwriting analysis as a bona fide tool for anything, but look at Peter Khoury’s handwriting in his diary about his alleged alien (ET) abduction:
You don’t need to resort to graphology or grapho-analysis to see that the writing is without class or distinction, sloppy, ill-formed, bordering on what one would see in the writing of a schizophrenic: an uneducated ramble, or mental deficiency, or neuro-motor malfunction.
Which is it? It doesn’t matter.
The writing supports the speculation that Peter Khoury’s purported encounter took place under the rubric of a delusional episode.
I don’t think Mr. Khoury was hoaxing or committing a ufological fraud, although some UFO investigators believe that is exactly the case.
I feel that Mr. Khoury was subject to a pathological bout (or several of them) that created in his mind the idea that he was seduced by female extraterrestrials.
Bill Chalker thinks his pursuit of DNA in a hair sample, supposedly left upon Mr. Koury proves the alien abduction hypothesis.
But the provenance of that hair sample is more than iffy; it is indeterminate.
(I won’t go further with the Khoury tale here. It smacks of excruciating lasciviousness that only the sexually morbid among you might find interesting.)
