Just showing that there can be more than one logical explanation says a lot...

I think that it depends a lot on who the person is, Lets say a large moving light in the sky is seen, A deeply religeous person will see an angelic glow, an astronamy student an iridium flare, an engineer will see an aircraft, a believer sees a UFO, my point is that different people see different things, Lots of people (nobody in particular) Will take an i dont belive it stance because they think that it may make them appear to be a nutcase if they profess that they have seen a ufo or a ghost or yetti or chupacabra (or whatever).
Im a female and i have met guys that i would quite cheerfully slap because they see ghosts aliens and goodness knows what else in every doorway. other people are so scared of the unknown that they will bury themselves in denial, which is as equally irritating as a woo stance, I dont think that its simply a guy thing.

This is a common occurrence, unfortunately. I remember listening to a debate hosted on a radio broadcast, between Rupert Sheldrake and a skeptic. When Rupert asked the skeptic if he had even bothered to read Sheldrake's research literature, the skeptic said, "No." Many skeptics outright, a priori (evidence-lacking a priori, that is) dismiss claims of a paranormal nature.
To be fair, though, many pseudo-believers will believe claims of paranormal phenomena without employing careful scrutiny and deductive reasoning first--not good either.
