This is not true at all. Many or most scientists in the SETI field are open to the idea that advanced alien civilisations, if they exist, could come here and make contact; in fact they think that this sort of contact is a very real possibility (and indeed should have happened long ago).

But after looking in depth at the reports almost all of them reject the idea that UFOs have anything to do with this possibility. And they are almost certainly correct.
