More than 33 million U.K. citizens believe in extraterrestrial life, compared to just over 27 million -- less than half the country -- who believe in God.
That's the result of an online survey of 1,359 adults who were asked a variety of questions ranging from belief in alien visits to Earth, suspicions of UFO cover-ups, belief in extraterrestrials vs. belief in God, and whether or not men actually landed on the moon.
The survey, conducted by Opinion Matters, revealed the following statistics among those surveyed:
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.
