Again, people are not coming to these conclusions out of thin air.
The eyewitnesses describe what they saw, heard and experienced. Some of them have even been taken onto these crafts. So people are not making anything up. They are just going by the evidence as reported and investigated.
The pseudoskeptic thinks their opinion should be given more weight than the eyewitness testimony and that's silly.
Eyewitness accounts is direct evidence.
Evidence that stands on its own to prove an alleged fact, such as testimony of a witness who says she saw a defendant pointing a gun at a victim during a robbery. Direct proof of a fact, such as testimony by a witness about what that witness personally saw or heard or did.
There's ways to test the credibility of the witness. The pseudoskeptic acts like the credibility of the witness means nothing but the legal system would break down if we didn't use eyewitness testimony and we didn't have credible witnesses.
So the pseudoskeptic thinks their opinion should be given more weight than the pilot, police officer or astronaut who's giving the eyewitness account.
Give me a break!
