The post goes on in this vein for some paragraphs, though it
never becomes clear what its point is. 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.
