Scientists are more religious than you think

Dr. Ian G. Barbour, a physicist and theologian:2

The charter of the Royal Society instructed its fellows to direct their studies “to the glory of God and the benefits of the human race.” Robert Boyle (1627-1691) said that science is a religious task, “the disclosure of the admirable workmanship which God displayed in the universe.” Newton believed the universe bespeaks an all-powerful Creator. Sprat, the historian of the Royal Society, considered science a valuable aid to religion.

Nearly 36 percent of scientists have no doubt about God’s existence
   18 percent of scientists attended weekly religious services (compared with 20 percent of the general U.S. population
   15 percent of scientists consider themselves very religious (19 percent)
   13.5 percent of scientists read religious texts weekly (17 percent)

But research also shows where the threads of suspicion run. A 2009 study by Pew Research found a wider gap between scientists and the general public on religion. And Ecklund’s new study also found:

   22 percent of scientists and 20 percent of the general population think most religious people are hostile to science
   22 percent of the general population thinks scientists are hostile to religion
   27 percent of Americans feel that science and religion are in conflict
   Of those who feel science and religion are in conflict, 52 percent sided with religion

“There is enormous stereotyping about this issue (of science in conflict with religion) and not very good information,” said Ecklund in a press release.
