The results are in from nearly 20,000 respondents, and while most of the responses aren't too far off from what we all might have expected, there are a few surprises buried in the distribution of opinions.


Thanks for this interesting poll.

I was very curious about the outcome of it, but had not expected this.
I thought it would have been because of all the hoaxes and debunking efforts more the other way around.
This poll shows that more and more people become aware of the fact that we Humans are not only alone anymore but also are being visited by very advanced Non Human intelligences.
I wonder when our scientific community will stop finally their ostrich policy regarding this phenomenon and going to start a very thorough investigation here on Earth about it instead of gaze only into the distance of space.

Very interesting results. So those crying hoax about UFOs are basically the very noisy and very tiny minority. They hover just in the 3% of the population! That is actually a sight to behold. Amazingly, a lot of ATS posters (and guests) believe in UFOs (be they ET or terrestrial).


Not quite...

A lot of the 20,000 people who took part in a survey about UFO's and Extraterrestrials believe in or have an interest in UFO's and Extraterrestrials...which isn't very amazing at all!

It's like holding a survey inside a Subway store asking what they're planning on having for lunch...

So of course the results are what they are, it only confirms what was already known due to over-representation.

Jeepers Xmus, I'm blown back by these results. I'm disappointed. I always got the impression that most people on ATS were more skeptical than this. Everything is ET aliens. Granted, I don't like debunkee troll-like skeptics myself (thats for sure) and I have seen ufos and strange experiences in the service. I think some ufo activity on this earth at some point, might be of intelligent (extraterrestrial possibly) origin, but not to the degree that the results show. Maybe not even anywhere near, by any stretch.



Disappointed by what, exactly? If you agree that "some" of the UFO activity may have been of intelligent origin, then it appears that you're talking down upon the same people who agree with you. Now I'm disappointed because I don't understand your post.



Cheers,
Strype

One thing that has always troubled me about these observations is how someone can be so sure of ET's existance on almost no evidence. Faith? Those who see a fuzzy light in the night sky and immediately postulate an ET is at the control, boggle the mind of a rational person. Faith indeed. Most rabid "believers" in ETs sound like religious fanatics. Their montra is disclosure, and if you question their logic you are labled a heretic.

It would be relevant, though, to see the results of a similar poll conducted with the general population. I wonder how they'd compare?


Indeed, by volume, and the chart agrees, the people here are leaning towards being believers, not all of which would be "blind". A general population poll would probably reduce those numbers and even the entire poll out in the middle area, or the "grey area" as it were.

I don't know if I would have ever considered myself a "true believer" of alien visitation but after years on this planet being interested in it, reading about it, talking about it, watching countless hours of idiotbox shows on it, I'm much more skeptical of that claim than ever before.

The same can be said for reverse engineered alien technology in the hands of 1 or more governments. I doubt that as I don't think any of you could name a single government that wouldn't exploit that, immediately, specifically the US. If the US had this technology, would there be 3 resource draining wars being, arguably, lost? Would they allow the entire economic system collapse? Sure, the end game of that benefits the elites, but there's going to be years of strife as the world descends into chaos. I'd expect to have already witnessed this reverse engineered tech by now.

This poll surprised me in spots, and made me smile in others, as they usually do. I honestly can't wait for some follow ups on this one.

How about you wake up and understand that we are not the only "good" people in the whole universe. Good with " " because not all of us are good. The aliens are the same. The universe is such a waste of space if we are the only benevolent beings around. The law of probabilities say that it is not possible that we are the only benevolent beings around the universe.

Wake up!

Why aren't these Aliens helping mankind?


** Perhaps they want us to learn on our own...........or why should they helps us? I don't expect my older, wiser neighbor to advise me how to solve my lifes problems.Maybe he doesnt care one way or the other.BUT this doesnt make them demonic.


Why are these Aliens hiding from mankind?


** Maybe they know that if we knew they were here with certainty and reachable ...we would ask them to solve our problems...and they may want us to learn on our own.


Why are these Aliens hurting mankind?


** We don't know its the aliens that are hurting people....Even if there are aliens that are hurting people, It does not mean all are melevolent.Absolute answers dont work...


How can physical beings walk through walls?


** didnt know they could ?...but whats to say that in a few hundred years wont be able to do this as well.


How can physical beings disappear?


** Again we dont know what we will be capable of in a few hundred years.

The results are very simular to how i voted.

I thought the survey would pan out that way.

Thanks ATS.

Oh but I guess you see what is piloting these weird space crafts...it must be little green men from outer space!!!

Could be, or some private from the air force, etc...
I have never seen a UFO, and even if I have personally witnessed one, that doesn't mean I know who the pilot is, but I am open to any logical possibility. I try to go with the most reasonable explanation...such as an airplane is piloted by a normal human pilot...but something I cannot identify I therefore cannot state what is or isn't going on



Kinda liek

liek? -eye twitches-


how america thought muslims were piloting the 747's that ran into the the Twin Towers I guess those could of been aliens too because we couldnt see who was driving it
edit on 12-8-2011 by Evanzsayz because: (no reason given)

If you say so, again...I go with semi-rational answers. Sure, trained mice could be flying flying saucers and 747's, however, chances are, its your typical pilot (as far as the planes go).

Little green men, incidently, is the "Raelian" cultists claims...the most common claim for hmm...40ish years+ is little grey beings (hard to call it male or female considering there is no specific gender noted)

Because there is no mention of them in the bible and a loving God would not hide such a thing from humanity.

Lets -pretend- for a moment that there isn't mention of them in the bible.
Yes, lets do just that..of course this requires we actually not read the bible at all...but ok, lets pretend its not there...
What is the bible? The story of the earth's genesis, or the story of the universe's genesis? Why don't we hear about the water on mars? why don't we hear about the "building" of Saturn and the rings, etc...
Now, if its not in the bible, then it must not exist...well, thats a relief I guess, then we don't have to think about different planets in this solar system...isn't that a relief.

And since his initial creation of us (spending pretty much all of his 6 days creating earth), he has done absolutely nothing since...because he is incapable of it...he knows that he must update the humans on every single project he ever does...contractually obligated to update us on the plantlife he created on PX38541 a few years ago, or etc...

Yes, this is sarcasm...you think the master creator stopped creating after this fail experiment?
The bible is meant to be the human story, not god's story...and the human story is meant for humans...why should we give a rats arse about what some gray alien's genesis that means nothing to us?



You are clearly a very ignorant narrow sighted person,

Clearly. You are clearly a very enlightened and open person




if you read what i said i support the eyewitnesses. These 'Greys' are really just the nephilim which are deceiving people by saying they come from other planets.

The eyewitnesses I know of speak of a different species meeting them, and having a variety of experiences.
Now, this all comes down from accepting claims anyhow at face value...

What are the aliens reported? Well, according to some "whistleblowers", the people are often meeting military hardware doing psyops experiments on people for a variety of reasons.

If you ask a therapist, it is the new "demon"...meaning a unproven monster you can tuck away supressed memories of an abusive youth (aka, you were molested by your parent, but you brain needs to cope, so the pop sci-fi figure of the day grabs it and suddenly you weren't molested by dad, rather, you were abducted by aliens. the human mind has a incredible way of copeing with bad stuff so we can continue living life).


So, lets see..We have some very accomplished people saying it is military psyops
We have highly educated people whom make it their life to understand the human mind saying its a psychological defense
Yet some guy on the internet is claiming its biblical demons because some youtube videos of "interesting people" suggest it also.

Yes, I am the narrow minded one...lets go with that...easier, isn't it.


There is nothing "spooky" about it once you actually know what they are.
edit on 12-8-2011 by RevelationGeneration because: (no reason given)

I don't know...I would like to one day meet someone whom absolutely knows beyond a doubt what is going on here...until then, we just got a lot of "interesting people" weighing in on what it is in absolutes, like they are privvy to some supernatural knowledge that the rest of the world isn't able to have.

Depends really..
Faith is not required..for instance

Lets say someone walks up to you and says "I suspect they will find microbial life in the oceans of Enceladus (water moon around Saturn), you would respond how?
Well, if you checked just a little about it, you would think...sure, possible and possibly..many factors that bring this into a logical hypothesis.
No, you do not suddenly fanatically believe there are sharks in that thar ocean, but your open to the prospect of some form of life and it won't suprise you at all if its confirmed one day...you may even look forward to probes going to test for it and will entertain different concepts of what lifeforms could exist there.

This is not some religious stand...its based on sound known science and a bit of perspective.

Same thing with the greater alien question as a whole...

Now, yes, plenty use it as a pseudo-religion...thinking ETs are here and going to replant all our tree's, give everyone a ferrari, etc...but thats quite often the fringe (there are fringe's in every subject). The vast majority of believers in the possibility are just quiet readers...maybe occasionally adding to a hypothesis, and are skeptical, but not dismissive. This is the most rational understanding in my opinion...and the extreme sides are the ones being far more "religious".

The Vatican years ago (May 08),made the below statement on alien life . Believing in alien life does not contradict a faith in God. Could they not be created just like us? perhaps earlier making them more evolved.

Life on other planets is contradictory to your world view?

Let me get this right: God created billions of galaxies and trillions of planets, but only put life on 1 of them?

1)75% holding out for ETs (due to years of media pressure from cartel agents who own the
technology of energy from the environment as the only way to achieve such technology in
opposition to those that continue to use archaic and polluting energy resources.)
2,3) few sightings are any technology at all (denial of the senses and and ignorance of the
technology)
4 to 10) side with ET side of life that does not exist at all due to media control since 1945 as
a great achievement of mass mind control because its the only thing out there for fun loving
people in lieu of countering National Security agents that are in the biz to keep the energy from
the environment out of our reach, job well done we can never go against the great wall of ET in
the media. Any one can see through the ET wall of National Security that hides the great Tesla
technology from us. Its a free country that lets agents for the ET wall run free and devour any
chance of development but the technology is ours and can't go anywhere until all resources
are run dry and the plastic pollution has to be cleaned up by Tesla methods. When the elite
face the music of impending DNA pollution the metal methods of Tesla will scrub the Earth's
oceans clean with the only power source left, the environment using all the metal usable.

1. If potential Aliens are like Humanity, then studying though torture would be no different than what human Scientists already do to other humans. And the Bible clearly states tha there are things beyond our reconing, often described in terms of power.

2. Sounds like conditional love. Death comes too soon for me to make anal probing by extraterrertrial miscrients worth throwing away eternity over, any more than faltering due to a serial rapist suddenly getting a hankering for obese 30 year old women would turn me away. I accept the concept that something about God is going to blow my mind when all is said and done. I don't have a monopoly on all understanding. Bible is clear that you have no control over the world, but you have control over your responses.

3. I would be far more worried if all they ever did was sunshne and butterflies ecause that is the nature of deception.


Dude, what are you talking about? No offence, but half of that makes no sense.

Thank you S.O. for conducting this survey.
I look forward to seeing more of the same type.

Any word from the Author Of Life on this.
I do not think we can play God when the true nature of infinite energy from the
environment is being kept from us by greedy humans even though National
Security is the banner of the agents work we should not be diverted by useless
ideas.

Whether having aliens exising (with all the bad stuff they do) should be a contention for believing in a Biblical God. Direct response to the person in question, and in that makes perfect sense.

Where are all the spirits coming from beside from us humans.
You think angels are going anywhere else.
Earth is where the action is.
Just because we finally find how to control nature we have to be told
unearthly things. That is a sacrilege of lies from the highest controllers
on earth. Aliens where are you? We are here in the controlled mass
media taking Tesla technology away from Earth.

There is a wealth of evidence - assuming you accept the sworn testimony of pilots and ex-military personnel, as well as numerous mass sightings. Such testimony would be considered evidence in a criminal trial.
