A POLL has found more Britons believe in aliens,angels and ghosts than God.
The survey of 1,500 adults and 500 children, carried out ! by OnePoll, found more than half of adults believe that there is alien life, while only a quarter believe in God.
Of the children polled, 26 per cent believe aliens are disguised as humans while one in 20 thought they knew an alien – and of those, one in 20 suggested their mother as the likely culprit.
In the 2011 census 59.3 per cent of the population described themselves as Christian – but that doesn’t necessarily mean they were believers. A YouGov poll of 1,500 Anglican clergy this week found one in 50 priests believe God to be a human construct, while 16 per cent of priests say they are unclear on what they think about God.
And Atheists more likely to believe in aliens
According to a poll conducted by Survata, a US consumer research firm, 55 percent of atheists and agnostics surveyed said that they believe in alien life, as compared to only 32 percent of Christians.
