Why are godbot so dishonest:-<quoted text>Why don't you get your facts straight? from a blog site, skeptics, puhleez, you have no credibility.
But, even your site does not say what you project.
Right here, it says that it is 30% atheists, and 30% I do not know (agnostics). If you followed my blogging, I have pointed out that most atheist scientists soon move into the agnostic category or I do not know. So, if you want to come at me, try to do better than some blog site, without credibility and that does not support your position.
FROM YOUR SITE:
Moving down a step in terms of scientific street cred, there was also a 2007 paper which surveyed 1,646 academic scientists at 21 top universities on their belief in god. Their findings show rates of atheism at about 30% and agnosticism also at 30%, and find that the rates are not dependent on academic discipline; academic scientists in the natural and social sciences have similar rates of atheism.
In contrast to the high rates of atheism among academic professionals, there was a study carried out by The Pew Forum on religious belief in the general population along with several other social factors, including education. 17% of American adults surveyed identified as "unaffiliated" and only 1.6% of the population said that the were atheists and 2.4% agnostic.
1. You originally quoted from an none cited poll taken back in the 60's
2. Yes I quote from a blog but the data came from http://pewresearch.org/
3. The original discussion was about scientists not the general public.
The comparison of the rate of none belief between scientists and the general public shows quit convincingly that belief in fairy tales and myths is inversely proportional to education.
