What percentage of the America's population believes in aliens?
A telephone poll conducted by the Center for Survey and Research Analysis at the University of Connecticut, resulted in that roughly 77% of Americans thought alien lifeforms could develop on planets very different from Earth. Around 8 out of 10 Americans believe is is likely that intelligent aliens on other planets are more advance than humans on earth. Seth Shostak, senior astronomer for SETI, who appeared in "Extraterrestrial," predicts a real possibility that we may find evidence of intelligent extraterrestrial life by the year 2025.

Thanks for the feedback!
I believe that the percentage of the US population that cheats when they fill out their federal tax returns is?
According to recent studies on the Internet, 20% of the population believe in aliens!
they shouldnt No reason they should or shouldn't, they should only hope or not. There is a pretty big chance there is other life out there, but people are entitled to their o…wn opinion in this matter, there is no right or wrong. We-ll there are a lot of unexplained things on this planet we don't know about mermaids trolls the mothman all this things but we have our own opinions to my opinion I believe in aliens just because this world is mysterious and we don't know everything about it
Everybody's life has some events in it which simply cannot be explained. We are not omniscient, so some things will happen that we have no way of understanding. In the… past when something inexplicable happened people would say it was the work of the fairies, or the goblins, or the kobolds, or the elves. These days people are wiser: they no longer believe in elves, brownies, or leprechauns. So they say that these things are caused by aliens.
People generally think aliens are green because of old sci-fi movies that used this colour and has Carrie don as a trend ever since. Also green usually represents cold, sick a…nd other negative things which many believe aliens to be. But today aliens are depicted as a variety of colours and shapes and no longer are considered evil nessecarily.
The American Religious Identification Survey was carried out during February-November 2008 and collected answers from 54,461 respondents who were questioned in English… or Spanish. One of the findings of the survey was that 76% of American adults identified as Christians in 2008, compared to 86% in 1990. Based on their stated beliefs rather than their religious identification in 2008, 70% of Americans believe in a personal God, roughly 12% of Americans are atheist (no God) or agnostic (unknowable or unsure), and another 12% are deistic (a higher power but no personal God). A large majority of Americans (78%) say they believe in God and 15% say they don't believe in God, but do believe in a higher power, according to a July 2008 Gallup poll.
There are a lot of people who believe in aliens these days, but there are about a million people per state.
23.4% although it has been thourt that over the years the % has increased
Answer It is estimated that approximately 68% to 88% of the world's population believes in one of the four largest religions, all of which believe in a higher pow…er of sorts.
Around half of Americans do. It's not an atheist belief it is evidence-based science accepted by many religious people too.
No. Scientists don't tend to believe in anything until they have proof of its existence/reality. Many scientists believe that it is likely that there are other forms of li…fe in the universe, but that is not the same thing as "believing in aliens", which has overtones of ET visiting Earth.
Answer #1: The possibility that aliens from other planet exist is not impossible. Compared to what there is to know, humans practically know nothing. I say… that there is a possibility. Did you know, i know this can not be confirmed, that the governments hid from the world that there is really aliens. Maybe we are the aliens and we just don't know it. Just because we can't live on another planet doesn't mean that other creatures can't. For all that you know we live in earth and the animals are the aliens. Well think about it, they live and look differently, they don't speak like we do or anything like that. But always remember that "Those who don't believe, no proof is enough and for those who believe no evidence is needed." Believe what you want to believe not what other people tell you to believe. Just because Catholics believe in Jesus doesn't mean you have to believe. (This last sentence doesn't even make sense, if you don't believe in Jesus how could someone be called a Catholic.) have u seen monsters vs aliens??????(nothing to do with real life just a fictional story use fact to support answers not movies.) Even if your Catholic you can believe in aliens one of the representatives from the Vatican said we can. It is not against the religion. Also aliens are things not from this planet or commonly found on this planet so here on Earth humans and animals can not in any sense be considered aliens. They may exist, they may even be around here. But I will believe in one when I kick one in the ankle. hi im Aisha.. i belive in Aliens because i saw one and this ain't no joke or trick,no one belives me but i know i saw one please email me if you want to ask questions about them...i never esackly saw them.but i saw them belive me or not its up to you i have proof go on www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBSo- yB-P74&feature=related i love ant and dec!!!!!!!!! from aisha email:firstname.lastname@example.org ===== Answer #2: What anyone does or doesn't believe is irrelevant. There is a significant probability of the existence of intelligent, technological, civilized life elsewhere in the universe, besides Earth. We have not observed any evidence of its existence. That's a pretty boring statement. It certainly doesn't stand up against "they're among us" and "I saw one", and "the government knows and is hiding the truth" and "if you can just believe then you won't need no stinkin evidence". yes, search up area51
Because they either want to, or have evidence and/or reason to believe so. 'Want' being from the fascination of extraterrestrials and their capabilities, and perhaps the per…sonal attachment of being part of something more vast and mysterious. 'Evidence' being from the sightings, reports and documentations of over thirty million people, or perhaps personal experience only explained through the intervention of aliens. And, 'Reason' from the ancient scientific and philosophical questions regarding the size of the universe and potential habitation of other life as evidence of our own existence.
Believing in something is not necessarily deviant. Most people should believe that there is the possibility of life outside of our planet. However, there is no proof… that life exists anywhere else apart from our own planet. As our exploration continues and we visit closer and further worlds, the likely hood of finding other life increases. The term aliens is a misnomer referring to "green beings" that seem to only show themselves to mid western Americans in the middle of the night, miles from no where, and with no attributable witnesses. Beer may have been on the menu as well. If you believe that aliens are visiting our Earth then you are in the minority, but if you believe that aliens is life on other worlds, then given time, we should prove that this is true. We orbit one star in a galaxy with over 100 billion stars, and there are over 100 billion galaxies. If we are the only life with over 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars, then I will eat my hat, clothes and possibly underpants :-)
