Science and Religion
There is a common misconception that all scientists are atheists but that couldn’t be further from the truth. While studies have found that scientists tend to be much less religious than the general public, a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People & The Press found that just over half of scientists (51%) believe in some form of deity or higher power; specifically, 33% of scientists say they believe in God. Some of the greatest Nobel laureates and pioneers in science believed in God. Here are eight famous scientists who fall into this category.
