The whole premise of UFO skepticism is to abandon reason. This is because they want to get the evidence in the arena of,"it could be anything."
See with,"it could be anything" you throw reason out the window. Reason says, what's most likely and what's less likely. Reason doesn't ask for
100% certainty but UFO skeptics do.
Let's look at some evidence.
Bill Chalker is one of Australia’s leading UFO researchers and the author of The OZ Files: The Australian UFO Story and Hair of the Alien: DNA and
Other Forensic Evidence of Alien Abduction.
Bill's personal 'top ten' regional Australasian case list...
1. 31 August 1954 Sea Fury case, near Goulbourn, NSW, Australia (experienced naval pilot, radar visual confirmation, independent ground witnesses,
apparent intelligent responses to witnesses’ thoughts about possible collision)
2. 23 July 1992 Peter Khoury “Hair of Alien” DNA case, Sydney, Australia (abduction-type encounter with female Nordic blonde yields anomalous hair
sample that suggests “hybrid origin” and unusual genetic profiles)
3. 27 June 1959 Father Gill UFO entity sighting, Boianai, Papua New Guinea (credible multiple-witness sighting of animate entities on UFO with
4. 30 September 1980 George Blackwell’s UFO landing and physical trace case, Rosedale, Victoria, Australia (compelling array of physical evidence
– ground trace, missing water, effects on witness, other witness)
5. 8 August 1993 Kelly Cahill’s abduction experience, Narre Warren North, Victoria, Australia (possible independent multiple-witness UFO encounter
with abduction aspects and physical evidence)
6. 19 January 1966 George Pedley’s UFO nest encounter, Tully, Queensland, Australia (daylight close encounter with UFO take-off leaving physical
evidence – “UFO nest”)
7. 14 April 1966 Ron Sullivan’s “bent headlight beam” experience, Burkes Flat, Victoria, Australia (striking UFO encounter, physical traces,
bent light beams, possible related fatalities)
8. 6 April 1966 Westall school daylight UFO landing encounter, Westall, Victoria, Australia (multiple-witness daylight landing, physical traces,
9. 1977–78 Gisborne UFO abduction milieu, Gisborne, New Zealand (complex and high strangeness UFO and abduction milieu – entities, multiple
witnesses, multiple abductions)
10. May – August 1973 Tyringham Dundurrabin intense UFO flap area, New South Wales, Australia (long-term intense UFO flap, multiple witnesses,
physical effects, paranormal aspects)
The following presents a statistical analysis of data found in 3,189 reports involving observations of anomalous phenomena or objects on or near the
ground resulting in physical effects generated by the unknown objects observed. These events took place in 91 countries between 1490 and 2006. There
are hundreds of additional reports of possible trace sites which do not involve the observation of a UFO. All but the most significant of these events
have been removed from the primary files and located in a secondary catalog.The analysis permits certain regularities of these phenomena to be brought
out. The data indicates there is a certain type of phenomenon which shows stable statistical properties.

I can go on and on.
Reason says you should weigh the evidence as to what's most likely and what's less likely. This is what happens everyday in court. The jurors are
not eye witnesses but they make a decision based on the evidence and this is why the standard is beyond a reasonable doubt.
UFO skeptics don't use reason. This is why you will not hear many of them saying these things don't exist. They know the evidence is one sided and
they have no evidence so the objective is to move the debate away from reason and put it in the sphere of,"it could be anything."
Of course it could be anything but what's most likely and what's less likely based on the evidence?
Again, there's zero evidence on the skeptics side. See the skeptic would have to show why it's less likely when it comes to every video, picture,
radar report, eyewitness account, mass sighting, trace evidence, abduction case and more.
The skeptic doesn't have any evidence to reach a less likely conclusion based on reason so the debate has to be moved to,"it could be anything."
