Not only do more than 80 million Americans believe that UFOs exist, many are not afraid of an alien drop-in, according to a new study.
As part of its new "Chasing UFOs" series, the National Geographic Channel conducted a poll to assess Americans' views on the paranormal. The study found that 11% of those polled firmly believed they'd spotted a UFO.
In addition, most of those polls said they would regard a minor alien invasion as only a minor inconvenience. And most expect the visitors to be "E.T."-type friendly, according to a news release on the study.
In spite of the recent uproar over the Miami face-chewing incident, 71% in this survey were more likely to believe in aliens than in zombies -- or vampires or superheroes, for that matter. Sorry, Green Lantern.
