It is clear, however, that it's not about the ETH. ETH stands for "Extraterrestrial Hypothesis". To contactees, whose claims comprise the bulk of the target here, there is no "hypothesis" related to ETs. There is only certainty. Nor are there UFOs, because the flying objects have been identified as spaceships piloted by angelic beings. That is why the religious- studies scholar J. Gordon Melton has written that flying saucers are one thing, UFOs another. The ETH is a speculative inference - an implicit acknowledgement of tentativeness and uncertainty - which some ufologists have drawn from UFO reports, not from contactee stories.
