Out of nowhere, an incandescent light dazzles a young woman.

After her eyes adjust to the brightness, they widen in fear as a small grey figure emerges…. Several weeks later, the woman is pregnant. There has been no physical conception but the pregnancy dates back to that strange event. At night, shards of memory interrupt her dreams. They are of a strange being not from this Earth. In the Bible, over 2, years ago, the angelic visitation resulted in the birth of Christianity.

Today, there are plenty of people who view the existence of extraterrestrials not just as a matter of belief, but also akin to a religion. It gives us a sense of purpose. We feel important. They want to go somewhere else to help restore that meaning. Research by the University of Fribourg found that those who believe in a higher purpose, the literal truth of the Bible and divine creation, were also more likely to believe in conspiracy theories.

For instance, people who are more educated are more likely to reject conspiracy theories. Some studies have also shown that disadvantaged groups are sometimes more likely to believe in conspiracy theories. The desire for escapism through conspiracy theories is understandable. And in some countries, conspiracy theories are extremely prevalent. The study came out before the pandemic took hold.

Since then, many people are more anxious and uncertain about the future. If the survey was repeated today, would figures go up? The problem with conspiracy theories — whether aliens, 5G masts or vaccines — is that people can also write off a logical explanation as part of the conspiracy.

When people are not fulfilled by official or conventional explanations for events, conspiracy theories might seem appealing. The most famous UFO conspiracy theory demonstrates this. At least, that was the official story.

The conspiracy that launched a global industry of books, TV series and movies involved a spacecraft and recovered alien bodies. It continues to this day. Psychologist Chris French is not surprised. The phrase originated just a few weeks before the Roswell incident when businessman and amateur pilot Kenneth Arnold reported, after a private Wanting an air Roswell woman, nine unusual craft moving at speeds far greater than any available technology. But what did people then start to report seeing after that? Saucer-shaped craft.

If somebody believes in UFOs, that person is then more likely to believe a light in the sky is a flying saucer and either see or recall features of a physical craft than a non-believer. Reliability of memory too is at play. False memory experiments reveal how easily people can be mistaken. One commonly used test features a list of associated words. French provides a simple example: snooze, snore, dream, nap, bed, blankets. Research into memory and alien abduction at Harvard University also sheds light on human susceptibility.

The experiment found that the first group of people were more susceptible to false memories. It is a reminder of the power of the mind and the psychological human desire to believe in something. There are other theories for belief in aliens.

There is ongoing research into whether some of those with alien abduction claims may have experienced childhood abuse. Some studies have found an association with sleep paralysis, where people experience a temporary loss of muscle control either before falling asleep or after waking up and are unable to move or speak. The experience can be extremely frightening and may also be accompanied by hallucinations or feelings of suffocation. This might explain the tendency of alien abduction memories to include invasive bodily probing. All the possible explanations reveal further insight into the human psyche.

So when we have a deep-rooted need for certainty and meaning, could a pandemic fuel a rise in alien beliefs? When people feel isolated and frustrated, they might be more inclined to turn to conspiracy theories in an attempt to make themselves feel better.

Persuading people who believe in a conspiracy theory that the truth is not part of the conspiracy is, of course, another matter. Considering the global phenomenon of alien contact culture, it may therefore be too late to persuade people that UFOs and aliens are not visiting us on a regular basis — from theories that the Peruvian Nazca lines were built to attract aliens, to the Star of Bethlehem being a UFO even though the most likely explanation is that the star was a comet.

So far over 4, known planets have been discovered outside our Solar System. Statistically, considering the size of our Universe, it is far more likely that there is alien life elsewhere. In Junetwo physicists even came up with an Alien Civilisation Calculator. It is an update of the famous Drake Equation for calculating the of extraterrestrial intelligences in the Galaxy.
