(Reuters) - Aliens exist and they live in our midst disguised as humans -- at least, that's what 20 percent of people polled in a global survey
The Reuters Ipsos poll
of 23,000 adults in 22 countries showed that more than
40 percent of people from India and China believe that aliens walk among us disguised as humans, while those least likely to believe in this are from
Belgium, Sweden and the Netherlands (8 percent each).
However, the majority of people polled, or 80 percent, don't believe aliens in our midst. "It would appear that that there's a modest correlation
between the most populated countries and those more likely to indicate there may be aliens disguised amongst them compared with those countries with
the smaller populations," said John Wright, Senior Vice President of market research firm Ipsos.
"Maybe the it's a simple case that in a less populated country you are more likely to know your next door neighbor better," he said. More men than
women -- 22 percent vs 17 percent -- believe that alien beings are on earth. Most of those believers are under the age of 35, and across all income
classes, the survey showed. Of those who do not believe, most are women.
In a poll conducted on a Czech news site the same day, out of 8481 people 59.2% believe extraterrestrials are living amongst us.

What's your take on this? Is it a good or bad result?
I think things are moving forward, don't you?
Personally, I think the percentage of people believing ET's on Earth is much higher.
