I think skeptics start out with an assumption that U.F.O.'s don't exist and therefore we have to find another explanation. This makes no sense.
U.F.O. clearly exists just based on eyewitness accounts. You have accounts from pilots, military, police officers, Presidents and more. At the end
of the day all these people would have to be either lying or stupid if the skeptic is correct. You couple this with cave paintings, paintings,
ancient manuscripts, pictures and videos and it's easy to say that U.F.O.'s exist beyond any reasonable dout. There's both direct and
circumstantial evidence to back this conclusion.
On the other hand, the skeptic ha no evidence to back his/her assertions. They only have heresay or 3rd party assumptions from people who were not
there. See ufologist are not assuming that U.F.O.'s exist because there's mountains of evidence to support that claim. Sure you have people within
ufology that come up with wild theories but you have that in fields like physics or biology as well.
Skeptics act like they have to be 100% certain that U.F.O.'s exist when with most things there's not that kind of certainty but we follow the
evidence. Like with black holes, gravity or the universe itself. Over 90% of the universe is unknown and a skeptic would have to be all knowing to
say that things like U.F.O.'s, psychic ability, life after death and other things don't exist. When the evidence in all of these things points to
the opposite conclusion.
So of course U.F.O.'s exist beyond a reasonable doubt and a skeptic will remain a skeptic as long as they make the assumtion that U.F.O.'s have to
be something that they can explain. There are alot of things out there that we can't explain and to look for other explanations in the face of all
the evidence is doing a disservice to reason. I think we have to advance as a people to the point of yes, these things exist and we need to explore
them fully from do they exist. That question implies that there's no evidence to support the claim and that's the furthest thing from the truth.
