According to the results of a poll, almost 60% of people believe that extraterrestrial life exists, while a survey carried out by the University of Chicago states that only 37% actually believe in God.

Speaking to, Nick Pope, the former head of the project for investigation of UFO sightings of the Ministry of Defense, said:

Around 60 % of people believe that we are not alone in the universe. This means that actually more people believe in aliens than in God.”

“Some people of course argue that ufology is essentially a new religion, a religion of the 20th and 21st century.

It is one of the most profound questions we should ask. If we could get a clear answer, it would change our world forever. The discovery of extraterrestrial life would be in contrast with almost anything else in our history”.

The latest research on extraterrestrial life also concluded that more than one in ten people claims to have seen UFO.

Pope said: “When I was worked for the Ministry of Defense, we investigated 2300 reports of UFO sightings each year. If 10% of the population has seen a UFO, this is shocking”.

From the events of 2012 in Nevada, when a group of BBC journalists were arrested at gunpoint at the entrance of Area 51, the interest in extraterrestrial life has intensified.

The poll shows that one in seven believes that at least one UFO is still being kept in the notorious military base.

But Mr. Pope argues that if there is extraterrestrial life in Area 51 and it is known to the outside world, then the government would have enough time to transfer it to an unknown location.

“Area 51 certainly exists: it is a top-secret military base. Some people believe that apparently there is an extraterrestrial life form in there… If it really once was there, I suspect that it has long been moved to a place that we have never heard of.”
