In Mesopotamia (where much, if not all, of Biblical mythology has its roots,) the concept of gods coming from the sky developed later. Originally, the sky was a god (in Sumer, the chief god, Anu.) Later, the gods lived on a mountaintop. There was no "heaven," it was just where the gods lived. This mountaintop theme carried on into Greece almost in whole cloth. In the Levant, the theme remained, but the gods didn't actually live on the mountaintop anymore, it was just where you went to talk to them. This is when the gods (in that part of the world) began to take residency in some region in the sky.
There are other reasons besides ets to have your nonexistent gods, creators, demons or whatever come from the sky.
Since the dawn of intelligence the sky has been an amazing and magical thing. Patterns in the sky will tell you the future. That's a cold fact. If you know what you are doing, you can say how many days until the Nile floods, for example, and hit it on the nose, or within a few days.
The coming of the next season is predicted by patterns in the sky as well.
Fantastic things appear in the sky, fireballs, comets, huge booms, etc.
The sky has lightning and thunder, tornadoes, rainbows, the Moon. Get it?
If you can't explain something as a hunter gatherer, then it must be supernatural.
This is a better reason for gods to come from the sky that your ET assertions.
You should try the search function here. Especially if you ever find the time to do some "research" (LOL) to find some evidence for ancient ETs. I seriously doubt you can find a single thing that hasn't at least been discussed here tens of times if not hundreds, some of it thousands.
If you were to choose to present something in the future, other than a tiresome proclamation of the superiority of your cognitive skills versus the rest of the world (or a ridiculous youtube vid made by a well-known fraud,) I would strongly suggest you look that bit of evidence up right here at U-M. It's very likely that it has been discussed, and even more likely that you'll learn something about it yourself.
And best of all, it could help keep you from looking more foolish by presenting us with some fluff that we've already chewed up and spit back out.
I think the above is brilliant!*
You can remind me of my idiocy, and in turn I can make sure you remember your own incompetence.
If all else fails, I'll tie a rope around my waist and your waist. That way we won't get lost. If we come to a cliff, well, at least we've reduced the stupid.
.... sorry Harte but this is stupid ^ ... tying the rope around both of you at the cliff is TWICE as stupid !
