The central question? It’s subjective

To a person who believes he or she has encountered extraterrestrials, the question of the existence of extraterrestrials is  central.

To a person who believes he or she has encountered a deity, the question of the existence of that deity (or of any deity) is central.

To a person who has never encountered anything he or she would consider supernatural or paranormal, the question of the existence of supernatural or paranormal things may be trivial.
