Nearly 95% of the biologists in the National Academy of Sciences describe themselves as atheists or agnostics, a far higher percentage than in any other scientific discipline. [Where Darwin Meets the Bible (2002), pp. 271-273]

Similarly, according to a 2003 Cornell survey of leading scientists in the field of evolution, 87% deny existence of God, 88% disbelieve in life after death, and 90% reject idea that evolution directed toward “ultimate purpose.” [Cornell Evolution Project Survey]

Compare this to the percentage of Nobel Laureates in science who are Christians or Jews - about 85% of the total, with atheists an extremely small percentage.

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Lots of material there for high school and college students to use in countering the nonsense of their teachers and peers.

Why the discrepancy between the lack of belief in a Higher Power  amongst biologist versus other disciplines
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

A friend of ours was a biology teacher before going to dental school.  He said studying the intricacies of human anatomy there helped persuade him of the existence of Creator God.

If you need a scientist who believes in the existence of G-d, visit the Physics Dept.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

William Sidis
William Sidis (1898-1944) was reportedly the smartest man who ever lived. He was admitted to Harvard University at age 9 but his parents held him back until he was 11.
Mathematics was his favorite subject and he excelled at it.  Unfortunately he was mocked and teased by “the best and brightest” all around him, as was Theodore Kaczynski, aka The Unabomber, another Harvard mathematical genius, recluse and miserable failure.
Sidis rejected “the big boss of the Christians,” like the Unabomber did, and embraced socialism and isolation.  He died at age 44 of a brain hemorrhage, with a disappointing record of achievements considering his intellect and education.  The Unabomber’s achievements – serial murders with package bombs - were far more calamitous.  So much for the atheist championing of their “intellectualism.”
