I'm a skeptic, I want to believe.....go ahead and convince me....show me the money!
Is it really wise or even remotely logical to assume that every single account or report of a UFO is a case a mistaken identity, a lie, or a hallucination? If even one report were true, that is all that would matter.

We're talking astronomical odds against you. The chances that this phenomenon is real are extremely high...
No. That is precisely the subject.
Now whether or not these cases could be attributed to ET or man made objects is an entirely different subject.
Why? Why not demons, for example? You'll find that notion is not unheard of. Just as much evidence for demons as ET. Maybe even more.
Although, I would apply the same logic to that as well and say that among the many cases that report these sightings as extra-terrestrial in nature either by close encounter from far, logic would seem to suggest that at least one of them would be true.
Asking for evidence is not the same as discounting. What's wrong with saying, "That's weird. I don't know what it was."
At the very least I would certainly not discount the possibility as many skeptics do, seeing as the odds are largely not in my favor.
Saying that aliens almost certainly exist is not evidence that UFOs represent extraterrestrial evidence.
Not the case, there's more evidence for aliens tied to the aerial phenomena of U.F.O.'s. You have someone considered one of the brightest minds of our time saying aliens almost certainly exist and countries spending billions looking for life.
I didn't say that they are demons.
You will have to show why these encounters are demons opposed to aliens.
I didn't say either is more likely.
So aliens are more likely based on the available evidence but if you want to say demons are a more likely explanation, let's hear the evidence.
Seeing as how the statement is semantically null...ok.
All evidence in this area isn't equally not evidence. That's the point.
As a Theoretical Physicist, it get's under my skin the way people use this term whenever they want to look like they're being scientific.
There is Zero evidence for dark energy, yet the modern standard model of physics is based around it
Even if it were demons, they would still be aliens by the very definition of the term.
