What Scientists Believe

In every country except Taiwan and Hong Kong, the scientists were less likely to see themselves as religious than the general population. Those scientists who did identify themselves as religious were far less likely to attend religious services than people in the general population. The scientists who identified themselves as atheists often fell into three main groups: those who thought of themselves as spiritual (though not religious) people, those who would have liked to have been religious but felt that they couldn’t, and those who remained involved in religious culture in some way.
