From The Christian Post
About one out of every three scientists in the United States professed believing in God, a recent survey found.
That figure is strikingly lower than the proportion of the general American public that say they believe in God (83 percent), according to the report by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
However, a Christian biochemist after examining the report said the comparably small number of scientists who believe in God is nothing to be alarmed over.
Dr. Fazale Rana, vice president of research and apologetics at Reasons to Believe ministry, said the percentage of American scientists who believe in God has remained constant for more than three-quarters of a century.
In the early 1920s, he explained, there was a similar survey conducted that found a similar proportion of scientists who believe in God.
“I see a lot of reason to be very encouraged by these results,” said Rana, who has a Ph.D. in chemistry with an emphasis in biochemistry and was a senior scientist in product development for Procter & Gamble, to The Christian Post on Wednesday.
