I'm fully aware of the origins of the ETH.

In the beginning of the UFO/Flying Saucer phenomenon it was our
own government who introduced extraterrestrials as a source of
then termed Flying Saucers and then hushed up. It may well be
they were correct, however no physical proof had or has yet to

The public, media, pop culture, tabloids, picked up on it and in
came the snake oil by the barrel full. It's turned into an
industry but as we know popular fiction was making a ton of
