A new study conducted in the UK came up with an interesting conclusion: more people now believe in the existence of UFOs than believe in God.
The survey of 1,359 adults from all parts of the demographic were asked a variety of questions pertaining to the beliefs they hold about God and about the existence of UFOs. Here are a few of the statistics resulting from the survey:
-52% believe UFO evidence has been covered up because widespread knowledge of their existence would threaten government stability.
-44% believe in God.
-1 in 10 people have reported seeing a UFO.
-25% more men than women claim to have seen UFOs.
-20% of respondents believe UFOs have landed on Earth.
-More than five million British citizens believe the Apollo moon landings were faked.
These statistics would mean that roughly 33 million UK citizens believe in the existence of aliens while only 27 million believe in the existence of God. While the results are believed to be accurate, some remain skeptical. One such person is Anglican priest and Director General of the World Dialogue Council, Alistair Macdonald-Radcliff.
Macdonald-Radcliff gave this as his response to the findings:
“Having done a certain amount of work with statistics on religion, I am inherently skeptical about what these statistics tell you, and particularly if there’s a narrow, selective base. Something with about 1,000 people does set off alarm bells.”
Denial? Perhaps. Either way, there has yet to be any information pointing to these results as being anything but genuine. Maybe a decline in religion is for the best.
