Extraordinary claims that are testable ought to be tested and that is the basis for scientific skepticism: extraordinary claims demand extraordinary evidence. A personal interest of mine is an attempt to understand the notion that some unidentified flying objects (UFOs) are actually alien space ships. It seems to me then that one ought to be able to find some physical evidence that aliens are visiting the Earth - and yet, apparently, there is none, nothing alien.
