    Of course 1/3 of that 2/3 are just afraid to say they do not believe in God.

    And, perhaps peripherally related, today is the anniversary of this quote:

    March 30, 1863 Abraham Lincoln proclaimed this a day of prayer and fasting: “It is the duty of nations as well as men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God…”

    If they don't have the backbone to stand up for their own principles how are we supposed to have any confidence in their theories?

    got me but just let people know you are an atheist down here in the bible belt.

    I no longer care since I am retired and do not need a job or anything.

    2/3 of scientists believe in god?

    I thought the number was higher--like 80 or 90%

    Anyway, there was a time that it was required to believe in god before you were taught the greater secrets of reality. So if this continues as is, no scientist will believe in god by the year 3000!

    So this is not good news for you freeman. Time is on the non-believers side in this situation.

    There was also a time when the church would kill you for science.

    The earth is not the center of the solar system. Had to recant or die.
