Err i think you COMPLETELY misunderstood what i said. I never said "aliens visiting planet earth is a wide spread belief" , I said LESS than 50% believe visiting aliens are real.
Therefore the accepted / popular belief is that they are NOT visiting. So anyone who does think they are visiting is a skeptic as the definition of a skeptic is someone who "doubts the authenticity of accepted beliefs".
But like ArMaP said because they might not doubt the authenticity of accepted beliefs they might not be true skeptics.
