Response to Yes... those types of gods

 

trade, intermarriage, assimilation, etc., so similarities in stories among pagan religions do not prove that aliens visited the earth. For example ancient Romans got many of their stories from the Greeks. Before that, they surely had gotten some stories from the Etruscans, who used to rule Rome before Rome became independent.
It is significant that people did not start talking about seeing UFOs until the late 1940s, as a result of the Roswell crash in New Mexico, which was interpreted and surely misinterpreted as a UFO crash. That followed of course several decades of speculation about life on other planets, this became part of Mormon mythology, and then the report about channels on Mars, which was mistranslated into English as canals on Mars. It was still a misinterpretation, an astronomer thought he saw channels on Mars, and he was seeing it wrong.
So we have really no clear evidence of alien visitations. There might be intelligent life on other planets, but so far we do not know how they could visit distant worlds, given the huge distances and the fact that nothing can travel faster than light, as far as we know.
