Do you think scientists don't believe in god just because of their profession?

They argue that god doesn't exist and says it's all about science... Do you think they would believe in God if they were in other profession?Do you think scientists don't believe in god just because of their profession?

    • Some fake internet scientists think that science is an argument against intelligent design. The more you study about the universe the more humbling it is though.

    • I also learned about water systems boiler operation and environmental protection. Even plumbing systems required physics and formulas when doing in depth training

    • @theflash675 Getme somma dat environmental protection knowledge!!!

  • Their profession has nothing to do with it. Science only works in which is observable only, and you can physically observe God to claim wheather he exist or not.

    Many scientist throughout were thiest and others athiest. Their education has nothing to do with wheather they believe in God or not.

  • 51% of scientists believe in God or a higher power.

    (http://www. pewforum. org/2009/11/05/scientists-and-belief/)

    Not sure why its assumed science somehow denies God. That's a commoner's thinking.

    Been 50/50 for a looooong time, even in Sir Isaac Newtons time there was a standoff with this lol

    Not sure why its assumed all scientists are atheists though, thats a stretch.

    • I think it's more to do with the evangelical literalist tradition in the US that makes scientists seem less religious. It's impossible to reconcile physics, geology and biology with a 6000 year old earth; but a simple belief in a God is easier.

      www.timeshighereducation.com/.../religion-and-science-global-survey-explores-academias-views

      "In France, three times as many scientists as members of the general public “believe there is no God”; in the UK, the figure is four times, and it climbs to almost seven times in Italy.

      Even more dramatic is the situation in the US, where 35 per cent of scientists, compared with 4 per cent of the total population, are non-believers."

      Science helps me believe strongly in God, as its always pushing the limits humans try to set on reality

    • That sounds like the kind of religion I can respect. I'll dispute your conclusion that there's a god, if you ask, but unless you do there's no reason to get into that.

      It's the people who pretend that there's scientific evidence against evolution or the big bang, any more than there is against gravity, electromagnetism, or the periodic table that will get an earful.

  • That explain everything 😂

    • The greatest scientist affirmed that atheism was not invented by a man of science, but all of them were just mediocre philosophers

  • No, not necessarily. It's 100% possible to be a scientist and be religious, there have been many, many examples of that, so I don't believe they'd be religious if they were in another job.

  • Being employed in a STEM field has nothing to do with religion. It's a job, therefore their religious beliefs would largely be the same regardless of where they're employed. Also, assuming you are talking about the Abrahamic God (capital G), and assuming the question disregards all other religions, I've met physicists and biologists who firmly believe that God created everything, which includes science (as broad a term that it is).

  • Scientists are being forced to accept that there are energies and forces that they can not explain. Discovering that all things are connected and our consciousness has a direct affect on matter. Our consciousness/spirit/soul or whatever you want to call it creates our reality. The scientists themselves proved it. It is a branch off of the collective consciousness. Our source of divine intelligence. ♥️

  • Not all scientists are atheist but let's say 20% of the world are atheist then we can easily say 40% of the scientists are atheists.
    (Numbers are just to give an example. I meant the scientists must have more atheists % than world atheist %)
    Sorry if my English is not enough to explain but I hope you got my point.

  • Plenty of scientists believe in God. In fact, knowing more about the natural world doesn't make people "woke" from religion, it often awestrikes people into believing that there must be someone smart behind all of this cool stuff.

  • Depends what kind of science. Science usually requires logic. God defies logic. Kurt Gödel, a close friend of Einstein, created an equation to prove why god can't possibly be real. It's like a Muslim being a Catholic priest.

    • Not only was he a close friend of Einstein, but I'm willing to bet that Einstein owes a large portion of his success to Kurt. Einstein once said that the only reason he went to the institute was because he enjoyed the long walks home being able to talk about physics and philosophizing with him.

  • Science and Belief are not the same, and a person can be a 'Scientist' and still follow some 'Spiritual' ways that are DIFFERENT, and NOT part of their 'Science WORK'!!

  • I forget the exact estimate but some scientists do think theirs a god but no I'm a busboy and I'm a atheist all it takes is looking at the evidence, having a 6th grade understanding of science, being truthful to oneself if you were religious to begin with and looking at the flaws in your old religion

  • There are many scientists that are Christians. There's a difference between superstitious believe in God and a more practical believe in God.

    Superstition is if you believe there's an actual entity that exists and you believe that the Bible does explain the world and the universe. It's dumb.

    A practical believer knows that the Bible is a guide to living a good and happy life with lots of suggestions and anecdotes. Good is just a tool that you use for introspection. You try to judge yourself from a good point of view and then you try to be a good person from that point of view. That's what god is meant for.

  • Where do you get these very unprecise infos?

    I know a lot of researchers who belive in god.

    Actually the more people learn about various aspects of life, the more they hare fascinated and tend to attribute that magic aspect to a god.

    The fact a scientific belives in the theory of the evolution or in the big bang is totaly not incompatible with beliving in god.

    It's all about paradigms. Creationism and the theory of the evolution are two opposite paradigms, but a scientist might use the theory of evolution to work and yet still belive on god.
    Actually there is a trend called "intelligent design" who mixes up various paradigms to give all the credits of what happens in the universe to a god. Long story short, the big bang and the evolution of the living things were planned by a god who wrote the rules.

    Don't assume scientists don't belive in god just because of few people.

    that dome
    makes GOD 100% real

    (ROCKET HITS DOME) so there is no excuse basically anyone who does not believe in GOD at this point is fucking retarded and stupid
    a fool
