That Scientist Are Atheists Myth
It was obvious this would some day be found to be a myth. The argument that the scientists of the world are largely atheist and are trying to discredit religion is not simply false but, ironically, the religious silence scientists practice is because of religious extremism.
Religious groups — creationist movements in particular — are not without blame here. Creationist attacks on evolution "have polarized the public opinion such that you’re either religious or you’re a scientist!" a devout physicist complains. Indeed, the National Science Board recently spiked areport on American knowledge about evolution, claiming that it was too difficult to tell the difference between religious objections to evolution and questions raised about the state of the science.
Yet another victim of the teach the controversy crowd. Bastard whores.
