A recent survey we conducted has revealed that a substantial 68% of those who believe UFOs exist think the government is withholding significant information regarding UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Overall, 70% of respondents believe in the existence of UFOs. Given our focus on paranormal topics, it's important to note that our audience might have a higher inclination towards believing in UFOs than the general population.

The survey found that 70% of participants believe in the existence of UFOs, with a majority attributing these phenomena to extraterrestrial origins. Another 22% think UFOs exist but believe they can mostly be explained by natural or human-made phenomena. A small fraction of the respondents (5%) do not believe in UFOs, and 3% remain uncertain.

Among those who believe in UFOs, a significant portion (68%) are convinced that the government is withholding substantial information regarding UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Only 25% think that some information is disclosed, and a mere 3% believe the government is transparent about its knowledge. About 6% of respondents are unsure about the level of government disclosure.

When asked about personal UFO sightings, 27% of respondents reported witnessing a UFO and are convinced it was of extraterrestrial origin. Another 32% have seen a UFO but are unsure of its origin. Interestingly, 35% of participants have never witnessed a UFO, while 5% have not seen one themselves but know someone who has.

The credibility of UFO sightings reported in the media varies among respondents. While 14% find these accounts very credible, a majority (62%) consider them somewhat credible. However, 19% think these reports are not very credible, and 5% deem them not credible at all.

The belief in alien visitation is strong, with 61% of participants convinced that aliens have visited Earth and interacted with humans. Another 17% believe aliens have visited but have not made contact. Meanwhile, 11% are unsure if aliens have visited Earth, and another 11% do not believe in such visits.

If conclusive evidence of extraterrestrial life were found, 31% of respondents think society should react with open acceptance and attempts to communicate. A larger portion, 47%, advocate for caution and extensive scientific research. A smaller group (8%) suggests a skeptical and defensive stance, while 14% are unsure of the appropriate reaction.

Engagement with UFO and alien-related content is relatively high among respondents. About 36% engage very often, and 56% do so occasionally. A smaller percentage engage rarely (6%) or never (3%).

Interest in UFO and alien visitation theories varies, with 31% of respondents deeply interested and actively researching the topic. A majority (53%) are moderately interested and occasionally follow updates. Some (14%) are mildly curious but not actively engaged, and a small fraction (3%) are not interested.

Regarding the 2023 US government congressional hearings on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs), half of the respondents (50%) found the hearings provided some useful information but left many questions unanswered. Another 22% felt the hearings were not very helpful, and 19% were not aware or did not follow the hearings. Only 6% found the hearings informative and shedding significant light on UAPs.

The testimonies of the three military whistleblowers about their experiences with UAPs were interpreted as credible and indicative of extraterrestrial activity by 39% of respondents. Another 22% found the testimonies credible but not necessarily extraterrestrial in nature. A smaller group (11%) believe the whistleblowers could be mistaken or misrepresenting their experiences, while none of the respondents deemed the testimonies untruthful. About 25% are not familiar with the testimonies.

The survey highlights a strong belief in the existence of UFOs and extraterrestrial life among our readers. Many have witnessed or know someone who has witnessed a UFO, and there is a prevalent opinion that the government is withholding significant information on the subject.
