A UFO sceptic was left terrified and running away so quickly he twisted his ankle, after seeing a mysterious craft and an otherworldly figure in Exmouth’s aptly-named Phear Park.
Mr Shaw said he remained a sceptic and was at a loss to explain Saturday’s incident

Quote from : Wikipedia : Skepticism
Contemporary skepticism (or scepticism) is loosely used to denote any questioning attitude, or some degree of doubt regarding claims that are elsewhere taken for granted.
The word skepticism can characterize a position on a single claim, but in scholastic circles more frequently describes a lasting mind-set.
Skepticism is an approach to accepting, rejecting, or suspending judgment on new information that requires the new information to be well supported by argument or evidence.
Individuals who proclaim to have a skeptical outlook are frequently called skeptics, often without regard to whether it is philosophical skepticism or empirical skepticism that they profess.
In religion, skepticism refers to 'doubt concerning basic religious principles (such as immortality, providence, and revelation).'
In classical philosophy, skepticism (or scepticism) is the teachings and the traits of the 'Skeptikoi', a school of philosophers of whom it was said that they 'asserted nothing but only opined.'
(Liddell and Scott)
In this sense, philosophical skepticism, or Pyrrhonism, is the philosophical position that one should suspend judgment in investigations.
Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true.
Flagged and starred for the picture alone. I'm really indifferent to peoples opinions that differ from mine.
As I said above somewhere, We just think different.
One case of a unexplained animal does not mean big foot (w/all the stories) are true. It does not mean we should not look at every video with skepticism.
I have yet to see any UFO footage that made me go WOW!
There is footage I cannot explain or has not been explained. This adds up to something like the god argument, I cannot disprove 100% and you cannot prove anything but something is unexplained.
