I understand where you're coming from, James - but do you find that skeptics sometimes conflate ''improbable'' or ''most likely never to happen'' with ''extraordinary?'' In other words, everything that sounds extraordinary most likely is improbable (to a skeptic)? Space aliens could fit into the improbability category, but if they did exist, it'd be ''extraordinary.'' We can agree on that point. But, if say the tic tac object is that of some type of advanced military weapon or aircraft, that doesn't seem so far-fetched, yet we could consider it to be extraordinary, as well. I don't think this is a matter of semantics, rather it could explain why skeptics and UFO enthusiasts struggle to meet halfway.
