People believe in UFOs because of credible witness statements, photos and video evidence.....
There is an extremely larger amount of evidence to back the idea of intelligent extra terrestrial life
So believing in the concept of unidentified flying objects is the same as believing in a religion?
Suspecting UFOs exist, is almost diametrically opposite in its' conceptual nature.

I don't think it has anything to do with believing in or worshipping aliens.
You still misunderstand the difference between wanting "the truth" about UFOs and the Disclosure/Exo-Politics movement; I am making a very important distinction.

Then you have not listened to the words of the Disclosure/Exo-Politics movement; one of the tenets is that after Disclosure those who have kept the secret, the powers-that-be, or whatever group each individual members hates, will be punished for the state of the world, and that Disclosure will save us, every worldly ill will be solved by the omnipotent aliens. It is an eschatological faith, aside from window dressing little different than other apocalyptic beliefs.
So, back to square one: beliefs in "UFOs" are no different from "religious beliefs".

Again, wether you take note of the supposed UFO links in the bible or not, has nothing to do with the areas of the brain that ones thinking on these two things occupies. My belief in God has NOTHING to do with my interest in UFO, and aliens, which resides squarely in the analytical segments of my mind as a subject of interest closer to the sciences .

Brenda Denzler wrote a book on this called "Lure of the Edge". She is a scholar of religion who looked hard at this question and came away unconvinced that you can so straightforwardly identify UFO "belief" with religion.
