According to a new CNN poll, 9 percent of Americans believe “space aliens, time travelers, or beings from another dimension” are responsible for the disappearance of Malaysia Flight 370.

According to a 2012 National Geographic survey, 36 percent of Americans believe that aliens have already visited Earth…

…The new CNN poll asks respondents where they think the plane is. Fifty-one percent of Americans believe the plane is in the Indian Ocean around where the search teams are looking, but 46 percent of Americans think it’s “somewhere else.” None of the people polled could possibly have any idea where the plane is…

The question is itself ridiculous, but maybe more ridiculous is the idea that almost half of America thinks the experts are wrong. “The search teams say it’s in that one bit of the Indian Ocean, but I think it’s in Canada. Or Hawaii. Or Scotland. Or the moon. Or Benghazi. Why? I’ve just got a feeling.”

Forty-six percent of Americans are living in a world of pure imagination.

Think we never landed a rocket on the moon and still think you can only survive a terrible disaster by the grace of some invisible old white guy in the clouds?

    Approximately 30% of Americans will happily believe any damn thing they’re told.

    Anti-American propaganda again eh? Colbert did a rather fun piece lately on this polling bullshit. Either they did the survey on a mental institution or the polled people who were just making fun of the questioners. The US educational system might not be what it used to be, but for Pete’s sake… This is just ridiculous.

  3. Michael says:

    More than half the people in the US believed Obama’s nonsense as well. So it’s actually higher than 46%.

  4. Tim says:

    Somebody knows where the plane is. Either those entities are not releasing the information so they may continue to hide their surveillance capabilities or USA disappeared it {most likely, IMO}.

    Freescale Semiconductor has been in the embedded electronics buisness for over fifty years — Somebody there has all the keys to the backdoors.

    How convenient that so many Freescale employees went on to meet the Heaven’s Gate crowd — Kinda like ST-6 just after faking a terrorist takedown.

      Fuck. All you have to do is ask… I’m on Alibaba. No, wait… You are one of those that think you’ll be next if you purchase the keys?? Loser.

    At least, in the future, they can afford plywood to fake a plane crash.

    Much higher number think 9/11 was an inside job.

      It was.

          They were. Still are. These are criminals pretending to be government — No US citizen reading these words on this blog today has ever lived under legitimate government — You’ve all been anarchists, all along. Y’all are just self-loathing anarchists.

    Occam razor. Way too many obvious human possibilities to even need an UFO theory.
    Real question: how many people think that all the searching near Australia is just a Penn-and-Teller thing…?
    I stick to my initial least-un-plausible theory: Bangladesh, intentional human act. Possible end of Penn-and-Teller hand waiving – suddenly finding the aircraft “crashed” where it can be quickly disposed from Bangladesh – Bay of Bengal…

    Love the graphic: it appears that Apple Computer has taken the plane (no doubt to enhance “airplane mode” in some way).

  10. noname says:

    Isn’t that Apples new office hovering in the clouds?

    Oh, I get it; Steve Job is back and needs a corporate jet!

    By the way, it wasn’t an UFO that took the plane but the other three letter acronym, NSA!
