One of the founders of the Jet Propulsion Lab was a sex fiend follower of Aleister Crowley and several UFO researchers used mediums to communicate with aliens based on an electrical theory of telepathy originating years earlier with Tesla.
Basically, psychic research morphed from the occult to fringe science and then entered Ufology. We saw Evans-Wentz using psychic research circa 1910 to explain fairy sightings. It's not hard to see how a modernized version of psychic research is found in Ufology in 2010. From channeled alien messages from the Pleiades, or another dimension (take your pick of researchers), psychic beliefs are rife in Ufology.
They provide either strong evidence for the EDH or proof that humans are even more gullible than usually supposed.
I think it is evidence for both the EDH (in some form at least..) and gullible people.
And as you have mentioned the ufo area has always had elements of the psychic ,the paranormal, and even the occult depending on how one defines these things.
