Conspiracists, I think some of you may be taking the Op to personally, although I do think it may have been better if any particular cases were left out of the discussion. Another problem lies with people who are just utterly deniable of anything no matter what information is presented to them. But I don't think it's too much to ask to provide solid evidence and to look at it logically.
Here is a video I posted in another thread which is also very applicable here

That's the best video on this topic I have ever seen.
I would love to see some "believers" takes on this.

I want to believe the OPs, but I would need to see some hard evidence on this passionately skeptical community (which I call cynics since its one sided skepticism) truely does have a logical mind.
until then, its simply a religous type mindset thinking they know the answers on the unanswerable.
Plenty of posts on here rel supposed photographic evidence of alien stuff lets see the MARS RAT not a rat a ROCK. (eh zorgon)
Then of course we have the spires on the MOON one expert on here with his claimed 30yrs experience on ariel shots WHO believed they were evidence of structures on the Moon had to admit he was wrong. (loved that!)
The people you called skeptics posted good evidence to prove them wrong plenty more if you look about.
You have to look at all possible causes NOT just what you wish and hope for 99.999% of the time its the boring reason, that gives you guy's 0.001% of hope! look at my sig for some real good advice

Being a skeptic means to evaluate evidence - not reject all evidence.

Why not get a big cup of coffee and sit down and read both copies of Richard Dolan's books UFOs & The National Security State. There are many cases in that book plus documented evidence that the government is trying to cover something up.
Telling us here to "prove it" sounds nice, but there are many excellent researchers out there who are working to do such a thing as that.
Meanwhile, pick up a copy of that book. It is one of the best out there on the subject.

When are these going to get it?: Art Bell, Jerome Clark, Robert Dean, Richard M. Dolan, Don Ecker, Stanton T. Friedman, Dr. Steven M. Greer, Budd Hopkins, David M. Jacobs, George Knapp, George Noory, Dr. Kevin D. Randle, Nicholas "Nick" Redfern, Robert Sheaffer, Whitley Strieber,
The world of UFOlogy would regain some modicum of respect if the above were out of the picture.
