If it really baffles you then I suggest you add some basic human nature to the mix along with the current status of our knowledge of UFOs. I agree the
evidence is overwhelming but the nature of the subject means that until we reach the absolute proof stage many people will not see it that way.
For some it is simply they have not reached their personal standard in the quantity of evidence required. This is strongly affected by how many
people they feel are honest vs the number who will lie. The more you distrust other humans, the less the evidence means to you.
And for a fair amount of people it is as simple as they can just barely handle life as they know it, life on a Universal scale is just beyond them.
Want a simple starting test? Ask 'How many Galaxies, the Milky Way is such a Galaxy, have we seen so far?'
That answer alone will tell you something about them. Then ask 'What percentage of people do you feel are honest, honest as a principle not just when
it suits them?'
Then ask them what they think about UFOs or life on other Planets. I think you will find those three things form a rather obvious pattern.
Ok, now I have to go find some sort of official # of Galaxies number from somewhere.
Adding a bit later...
125 Billion is the current estimate from Hubble alone. The picture associated with that page is stunning. All those galaxies from a small patch of sky
that looks empty to our naked eyes.
