96. Oh?
Over 90 PERCENT of the LEADING scientists are atheists and about 60 percent of ALL scientists are atheists.

Here are some references

L.Larson et al. (1997) Scientists are still keeping the faith. Nature 386:435-436

Larson et al. (1998) Leading Scientists still reject god. Nature 394:313

and just for fun...

Provine, W. (1988) Scientist, Face It! Science and Religion are Incompatible. Scientist 9:10

Nowak et al. (2000) Fairness versus Reason in the Ultimatum Game. Science 289: 1773-1775

Again, my point was simply to tell you that I am extremely well read. I have read A LOT from BOTH sides. There have been no meaningful refutations. Hell, I don't need proof...just give me a DETAILED reading list. Or just something less vague than The Virginia Seminary Library.

Now tell me the truth. Have you read about Evolution in any detail (textbooks or even a pro-evolution book, not a Fundamentalist interpretaion of evolution?).

And notice how I didn't say you yokels were wrong about God. I personally don't have a belief in god, but thats neither here nor there. I was talking about Evolution. Evolution is as much a fact as anything. I'm not talking about the origin of life or the origin of the universe. I'm talking about yokels trying to refute evolution without having read a book about it.

Its true that a large percentage of scientists are religious. But they are NOT fundamentalists with a literal interpretation of the bible. You would be hard pressed to find a biologist or biochemist who thinks adam was made from clay. Because guess what...humans are not made of clay.

You accused me of not being well-read. Now I AM ACCUSING YOU of not being well read. Read something besides books with BIBLE and SEMINAL in the title, my good man.
