I think that it is much more likely that the reports of flying saucers are the results of the known irrational characteristics of terrestrial intelligence than of the unknown rational efforts of extra-terrestrial intelligence ~Richard Feynman"Just words you know" ~Written/composed by Mentalcase
I think the greys, Nordics, and reptilians took over because they are easier to fit into the whole mythology that's sprung up over the UFO phenomenon over the past 50 odd years. After all, squatty toad-like being with eyes on stalks and no head is much harder to put into a sinister government conspiracy than greys, which are big-eyed, not quite human insectoids. It's the whole archetypal thing rearing it's ugly head again. Personally, I like the reports from the 40's, 50's, and 60's the most, as these are the stories that really captured my imagination when I was younger and got me into the whole UFOlogy field to begin with. Somewhere, someone is still seeing the squatty toad guys, but those reports are being drowned out by the bullsh** that fits the template. And that there folks, is my two cents.

Snuffy is absolutley spot on, I think.
The existence of life somewhere in the universe is a completely different issue to the existence of alien encounters and kidnappings and whatnot - which, to be frank, is something that your average UFO buff hasn't cottoned on to.
I've said this before somewhere, but the problem with UFO stories is that they're too democratic. They seem to be a catch-all phenomenon into which any loony can pour any belief they currently hold. The difference between a group like the Raelians and a group like BUFORA is astronomical. Nobody else in the 'parapsychological' world holds these extremes of opinion. Aliens seem to be 'all things to all men' and for that reason alone I would be deeply mistrustful.
Another of the theories possible begins with a cetacean life form evolved on another planet. Unlike Terran cetaceans, they did not return to the oceans, but were discovered and later altered and cloned by another species. This species (called the Masters for argument's sakes), needed a source of slave labor, and thus searched for an intelligent lesser species that they could genetically manipulate in order to be used effectively. Arbitrarily assuming that this period of time was about one million years ago, the most evolved species at that time on Terra would have been dolphins and whales. This might also have been possible on another planet, where a similar species evolved instead of a primate-like organism. Under this theory, the cetacean ancestors of the Greys were taken and genetically altered into an upright, bipedal species capable of doing labor for the Masters. After a time, however, the Greys apparently rebelled, and are now on their own, using the technology of the Masters, but since they were created to simply operate them, and not to design them, their knowledge of the technology's operation is lacking.
Another possibility is the Grey's may not be independent of their Masters, who may continue to control and manipulate the Greys for their own reasons. In this scenario, the Masters are often considered to be the Reptilians.
Just a thought

You will have to bear with me, because Iím going to quote someone (not exactly word for word) and for the life of me I canít think who he/she is or where I read it. I have more books than a sane person would count, and it would take to long to find the book in question. But here goes.
The person believed that humans need something to believe in, Gods, etcetera! And everything needs a plausible explanation. Years ago, before the space age, people saw unexplained thing in the woods! Elves and hairy men with legs of goats (to name just a few). The woods were full of ancient stories and legends. But as the years past, more places were going undiscovered. More land populated and ripped up by farmers. It was getting to the stage were there was nowhere left for the strange little creatures to come from! Until the point came where there was nowhere to look apart from up! They now arrived in silver glowing crafts, rather than from running out of bushes. He also suggested they looked the same - elves and aliens. Tall slim bodies, large almond shape eyes, long fingers. Except now, instead of being dressed in green cloth and long high leather boots, they wear silver space suits!
