For me when dealing with weird stuff it is kind of like walking a tight rope act between being too open minded and being too skeptical.

It isn't something anyone can just skim over and understand. So many people think if they don't know about this or that already it can't be true.
Those are also the stupidest most closed minded people I'm around, and it's only because I have to work with them.
For example the Dyatlov Pass incident is a story of several hikers that went missing and then later found dead under unusual circumstances is a good story even if the hikers likely died from something pretty mundane. The environment they were in was at night in extreme winter conditions. A few of them had their winter gear on and some of them did not. The tent was cut from the inside which indicates they where likely more afraid of something inside of the tent then outside.
And while most died from exposure to the elements a few died from other injuries such as blunt force trauma. Also there was some clothes that had above normal radiation. Even if whatever it was that made them leave their tents without enough winter gear to last long could have be something simple, but it is hard to image whatever it was not being scary enough to force them leave before they could get their gear and make them choose to freeze to death instead of facing whatever it was at the camp; and even some of those who left died from something that was similar to being hit by a car. No matter what really happened it makes for a good horror story, but the fact that we really don't know makes it that much more creepier.
Dyatlov Pass Incident
an object one of them found and brought into the tent to examine it closer.
it wasnt what they thought it was, it was living...it killed them and didnt even have to touch them.
just my sense.
