More People Believe in Ghosts than in God


There are many tales about aliens and ghosts, which may sometimes seem rather weird. Nevertheless, according to a survey, people are more likely to believe in the supernatural than in God.

The results of a survey showed that 54 percent of British people believe in God, while 58 percent believe in ghosts and aliens. It turned out that women believe in the supernatural more than men. The survey showed that women were more likely to visit a medium.

Researchers surveyed 3,000 people. About 25 percent of respondents reported at least one paranormal encounter.

It is worth noting that this year the National Archives presented reports about detailed UFO sightings that the Government kept record of. One of such reports states about a fisherman who said he had been taken to an alien spacecraft and, because of his age, aliens released him.

In 2007 researchers carried out a survey, which showed a decrease in moral standards, which is mainly due to draw backs in religious beliefs.

What about those who consider God to be supernatural? Up to the present moment nobody saw him, touched him or talked to him as far as I know. So what's the difference??
