More Britons believe in aliens than God

A recent survey carried out by Opinion Matters for the makers of the new video game 'XCOM: Enemy Unknown' found that more people believe in aliens from other planets than believe in God. The survey of 1,359 UK adults found:

  • 52 percent believe UFO evidence has been covered up because widespread knowledge of their existence would threaten government stability.
  • 44 percent believe in God.
  • One in 10 people has reported seeing a UFO.
  • A quarter more men than women claim to have seen UFOs.
  • 20 percent of respondents believe UFOs have landed on Earth.
  • More than five million British citizens believe the Apollo moon landings were faked.
