An interesting survey done in the United Kingdon shows that more people believe in UFOs than they believe in God. About 33.1 million people believe that there's intelligent life on other planets and less than half the country, about 17.5 million people, believes that there's a God.
Making things even more interesting, according to Bedford Today, 52% of the population believe that there's evidence of unidentified flying objects and that the proof is being covered up because the stability of the government would be threatened.
At least 10% of the population in England, mostly men, have claimed to have seen a flying object. More men than women also believe that there is a God.
Nick Pope, formerly of the Ministry of Defense Unidentified Flying Object Project said, "Just 20 years ago, religion was a huge part of life in the UK, and this shows just how much attitudes have changed. Belief in the alien phenomenon is now more widespread than ever, with many wondering how we and our governments would react to the news that aliens existed."
If alien life did show themselves more than one-third of the population would be curious about them. Fear would be the next emotion and one in five would be sceptical.
One fifth of England believe that alien space ships have landed yet five million do not believe that anyone has ever landed on the moon.
It's safe to assume that people all over the world just might feel the same way as the people of Great Britain. Why is it easier to believe in alien life than in God? Maybe sightings of space crafts and flying saucers are more tangible than just believing in an abstract idea of a God that can't be seen or heard. Many can argue by saying that trees, flowers, and intelligent life itself is proof enough of a Devine Being and others might go on to say that even alien life is proof of God.
What does the firm belief in UFOs and a lesser belief in God say about religion? It's possible that people are not getting what they need out of their faith and while looking to the skies, searching for God, they spot an alien saucer instead. Maybe that alien saucer is proof of God.
Keep those eyes to the skies because something could be flying above.
