This is an excellent point. Application of the ETH to UFOs does
not require its extension to contactee/abductee accounts, nor
imply that these phenomena have any connection at all. At least
some hesitancy to entertain the ETH can probably be attributed
to this conflation, i.e., subscribe to the ETH and you've
basically thrown in with George Adamski.
