If you believe in UFOs, you may be in better company than you think.

Thirty-six percent of Americans -- about 80 million people if the survey applied to the whole country -- believe UFOs exist, and a tenth believe they have spotted one, a new National Geographic poll shows.

Seventeen percent said they did not believe in UFOs, or Unidentified Flying Objects, and nearly half of those surveyed said they were unsure. Perhaps reflective of today's political climate, there appears to be near-universal skepticism of government

Respondents were asked whether President Barack Obama or Republican challenger Mitt Romney would handle an alien invasion better (Obama won 65 percent in that contest) :laugh: .... quite a chuckle.

about 80% of the world believes in a god, the statistic about belief in aliens doesn't mean to much

I read somewhere not long ago that the Catholic Church actually acknowledged that there could be aliens on other worlds.

Exactly. Once you take that statistic into account all the rest really are meaningless. Same with the polls suggesting that most people don't believe / know that Obama is a Christian. There's just something about Americans and conspiracy theories though - the moon landings, 9/11, JFK assassination, evolution, climate change, the Illuminati, birthers, Area 51, etc. For some reason Americans seem to gravitate towards the least plausible, the least scientific and most ignorant conclusion.
