I can't tell you what the scenario is either, because I already know what you think about it: you'll think I must be lying. I know because that's what I thought of people who said the same thing.

Okay, if you don't elaborate on this one, then you're a sadist. Don't think I'll think you're lying. Insane, maybe, but not lying. :)

You're a reasonable person, and you don't jump to conclusions. I'd be interested.

If truth comes from experience, and experience is subjective, then a skeptic is just a person who never had a particular kind of experience.

Well, I'm not sure I agree with this one. I'm fairly skeptical, and I've had my share of religious experiences. Dreams, mostly. Als, bear in mind, I grew up Catholic. Rather than define a skeptic as one who has never experienced such phenomena, I would define it to mean one who questions experience. Bear in mind, skepticism is much closer to agnosticism than it it to atheism.
