Well, that's probably the most plausible explanation for what's going on throughout history, perhaps that and hallucinogenic drug use, perhaps both in some cases. Perhaps hallucinagenic drug use in religious rituals was tied to communication with aliens, even. Still quite a bit of speculation, however.

Adam Carolla interviews Joe Rogan discusses the possibility of this.
