Question: Do approximately 5-7% of American evolutionists believe that "shape-shifting alien reptilian people control our world by taking on human form"?
The fans of Creation Ministries International and other leading young earth creationist organizations know that so-called alien life forms and UFOs are bunk and/or demonic illusions. See: Alien life and UFOS questions and answers
About 46% of Americans are young earth creationists according to a recent Gallup survey and about 54% of Americans are theistic evolutionists or non-theistic evolutionists.
Well, it appears that about 4% of Americans believe that "shape-shifting alien reptilian people control our world by taking on human form". And educated bet is that most of these people buy into evolutionary quackery (see: Wall Street Journal article Look who is irrational now). If I am correct about this matter, that would mean that about 5-7% of American evolutionists believe that "shape-shifting alien reptilian people control our world by taking on human form".
Certainly, no deeply religious young earth creationist Bible believers who carefully study their Bible believe in this reptilian nonsense. My dear evolutionist friend, do me a favor. God into Dutch Amish country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Then walk up to the nearest Amish man you see and ask him, "Do believe that "shape-shifting alien reptilian people control our world by taking on human form"? We both know what he will say, don't we? He will say "no" and laugh and/or give you a quizzical look.
Of course, this reptilian fantasy is not surprising since evolutionist rely on gut feelings for their evolutionary beliefs. See: Evolutionary gut feelings, "Belief in Evolution Boils Down to a Gut Feeling"
The reality is that the New Atheist campaign, by discouraging religion, won't create a new group of intelligent, skeptical, enlightened beings. Far from it: It might actually encourage new levels of mass superstition. And that's not a conclusion to take on faith -- it's what the empirical data tell us.
"What Americans Really Believe," a comprehensive new study released by Baylor University yesterday, shows that traditional Christian religion greatly decreases belief in everything from the efficacy of palm readers to the usefulness of astrology. It also shows that the irreligious and the members of more liberal Protestant denominations, far from being resistant to superstition, tend to be much more likely to believe in the paranormal and in pseudoscience than evangelical Christians...Atheist Gene Roddenberry inspired fantasy based on evolutionary bunkum
This is not a new finding. In his 1983 book "The Whys of a Philosophical Scrivener," skeptic and science writer Martin Gardner cited the decline of traditional religious belief among the better educated as one of the causes for an increase in pseudoscience, cults and superstition. He referenced a 1980 study published in the magazine Skeptical Inquirer that showed irreligious college students to be by far the most likely to embrace paranormal beliefs, while born-again Christian college students were the least likely.
