Indeed you are a skeptic, and it's a a very apparent aspect of your personality I'd say.
I think it's odd that people discount this sort of thing out of hand.
I mean.. we're here were alive on a rock in space, isn't that weird enough? Does that really make any logical "sense"?
I find it hard to imagine just about anything else in this realm to be any more fantastical, or illogical than than the fact that we exist at all.
