Alien Implant Researcher Dr. Roger Leir Passes Away
Dr. Roger Leir, the man who controversially claimed to have surgically removed extraterrestrial implants from more than a dozen alien abductees, has passed away. Leir was a highly controversial character within the ufological community whose work received a passionate support from many extraterrestrial believers and experiencers. However, for many his claims were too outlandish and not backed up by anything close to enough scientific evidence.
Leir was a regular speaker at Ufology conferences both in the US and internationally, and at such events it was not uncommon for his words to spark a great deal of debate. Many believed the man to be a con artist who unethically operated on alleged alien abductees to make a profit, but a great deal of prominent voices within the community have moved to pay tribute to a man who many viewed as a hero and a pioneer.
"A frequent and popular Coast to Coast guest, Dr. Leir was a titan in the work of UFO studies for his pioneering work extracting and studying potential alien implants found in abductees," said a statement on Coast to Coast AM's website." These implants constituted perhaps the best physical evidence of the ET/UFO phenomenon ever uncovered by a civilian researcher."
Despite this fervent support in some corners of the community, Leir's work attracted a great deal of criticism from many other researchers both medical and ufological. Many in the industry were not buying Leir's claims that the objects removed from his patients were extraterrestrial in nature, instead suggesting that these were merely ordinary objects dressed up with flimsy scientific research. Leir claimed that the majority of objects he removed from his patients were able emit radio signals and, in some cases, were even able to move freely in an attempt to avoid removal from their host body.
Leir's prominence within the Ufology community was underlined when he testified at the Citizen Hearing for Disclosure last year (above). You can read up on Leir's work on his website AlienScalpel.com
