As many as 48% believe in UFO's.
27% believe aliens have visited earth.
2% have been victims of abduction.
66 million in Roswell (when there is perfectly plausible explanation).
Women who have given birth to human-alien hybrids, and others who have been subjected to sexual exploitation from an early age.
Sleep paralysis is one possible explanation, media mass hallucination another.
Then there's Stephen Hawking who is clearly worried about our vulnerability.

Hands up all those who think Verne and Wells are to blame.


Where the hell did you get those stats?

2% believe they've been abducted? That seems just a tad high... Maybe 2% THINK other people have been abducted by aliens?


4 million.

Still don't know why in America, but not in Europe.


Not that it matters but ..

MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE INTELLIGENT ALIENS EXIST, POLL SAYS

Are we alone in the universe? Most Americans, Brits and Germans think that we are not. In fact, a new poll shows that slightly more than half of respondents from each country think that intelligent alien life exists.

The poll, conducted by the market-research company YouGov, found the Germans are most likely to believe, at 56 percent, followed by Americans and British, at 54 and 52 percent, respectively.
