THE former-head of MI6, Sir John Sawers, has stated that he believes aliens exist – a view that’s supported by more than half of Britain.
Britain’s top spy Sir John Sawers, 64, is certain extraterrestrials are out there due to the infinite size of the universe, stating that he believes in aliens and that our planet cannot be unique in supporting life.
He explained that due to the infinite size of the universe there most be other life forms out there.
The Warwick-born ex-spy said it would be “extraordinary” if life only existed on earth and is adamant that we can’t be alone.
He was the Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service from 2009 until 2014. Sir John told the Daily Star: “I think it would be extraordinary if in an infinite solar system that planet Earth was unique.
“I think we should go forward on the assumption that nothing on this planet is unique.”
Around 52 per cent of Brits believed intelligent life exists elsewhere in the solar system, according to a YouGov survey in 2015.
Brits over the age of 60 were found to be more skeptical of extraterrestrials existence with 45 per cent not sharing the belief.
Whereas a whopping 59 per cent of 18-24-year-olds did.
