Stanton Friedman is a vociferous and veteran debater known for his "calling out" of various debunkers including once saying "I will debate the Air Force's best ANY TIME and ANY PLACE." One of his signature lectures is "debunking the debunkers" in which he meticulously dissects the common mainstream explanations for UFOs and debunks them.
Not to be underestimated, Seth Shostak has also been in numerous public debates including one on the CBC against Dr. Peter Ward, co-author of Rare Earth(2), as well as, a debate in Washington D.C. against Irven DeVore, Curator of Primatology at Harvard's Peabody Museum of Anthropology. In these debates, Shostak took the stance for the possibility of life outside of Earth.
