No. You got the question wrong. The skeptics are those who doubt the mainstream perception of a given subject - the de facto truth if you will.
You are the skeptic.
Anyway, what would it take?
You can show me all the video of flying things you want, and you can even convince me that the videos are legit, and it STILL wouldn't constitute
proof of alien visitation.
To me it seems more plausible that a given technology seen here is also developed here by, say, a military-industrial complex unbeknownst to the
public, rather than a technology seen here is developed off planet by beings unbeknownst to mankind and then brought here.
It is pretty much a fact that state of the art aerospace is always secret, so when presented with proof of amazing aerial technology it would require
only a little leap of faith to accept that the state of the art was way ahead of anything previously imagined.
It would, on the other hand, require a huge leap of faith to accept that a) aliens exist, b) is way more advanced than us, c) is visiting earth, d) is
showcasing their technological superiority and possibly d) being kept a secret by the so called powers that be.
And I'm not big on the whole dogmatic faith thing.
