Yes, there were various theories at the time of course. But the
theory that these stones came from outer space was dismissed at
first; read the quotes again I posted before:

"In his book, however, Chladni took the next great leap and
concluded these objects could only come from space. For this he
was immediately ridiculed, then ignored."

"Eventually the story found its way to the White House in
Washington, D.C. President Thomas Jefferson was a scientist as
well as statesman. When he heard this peculiar story he declared
it could not be true..."

That's my point; that a particular theory was ridiculed by some
at first, then later shown to be true. It's as simple as that.
Those scientists at the time were at least willing to admit
later that was indeed the explanation because evidence was found
to support it. If similar evidence was to be confirmed
supporting a terrestrial explanation for some UFO reports, would
you be willing to acknowledge you were wrong? I'm not
proclaiming that some of these other theories must be true and
the ETH isn't, I'm just open-minded to various ideas. And yes,
that includes other terrestrial beings, perhaps even inter-
dimensional. More and more scientists now support the
possibility of multiple dimensions, universes or time travel.
For those ideas to be labelled as impossible by debunkers and
apparently even some ufologists, is unfortunate.
