(Yahoo)   More Britons believe in aliens than in God. Considering they also believe they'll win another World Cup, this is not all that surprising   (fe24.story.media.ac4.yahoo.com) divider line

FTA: "The survey, however, was done by a marketing firm in conjunction with the release of an X-Files DVD, and details of how the poll was conducted were not reported in the Daily Mail."

Nothing says "accuracy" like a marketing gimmick.

Depends on what you mean by aliens. Any form of extraterrestrial life? Yea, there's evidence that it's likely. Sentient life that has already visited earth? No evidence whatsoever.

Proving once again that Britons are a little less delusional than Americans as a whole.

look there was only one person who came to this world and died for us, was reborn again anew, and nobody recognized him at first, and then he flew away into the sky. but he'll back someday, when the world is about to end.

and that man's name is...

The Doctor.

Aliens are way more likely to exist than God, so not sure why this would be at all surprising.

I'm Mexican, too. If she takes offense, it'll probably end in an epic knife fight.

Well they do seem to be attacked by aliens every Christmas.

If I went around saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.
 
2008-11-25 12:21:03 PM  
I agree with everyone else; aliens seem much more likely (though I also agree that they haven't visited earth.)

Britons? Another World Cup?

Subby, you arse, England won the World Cup once. Scotland,Wales and the Northern Irish - all Britons - have not.

The English believe in God. They have first hand experience.

Well if there were a Briton team they would most likely make it out of the group stages and then lose on penalties.

How? We have absolutely no proof of aliens.

Just because there is life here, there's no proof of life out there.

Some religious people believe that because there is life at all, this proves that god exists because everything had to be created by someone or something.

It's basically the same argument.
