Jacob Meza states:
The majority of U.S. scientists either belive in a diety or in a higher power.Jacob supports this contention with a 2009 Pew Research report that reads in part:
According to the poll, just over half of scientists (51%) believe in some form of deity or higher power; specifically, 33% of scientists say they believe in God, while 18% believe in a universal spirit or higher power.The Pew Research sets out the same, in a bar chart.
Cofty in reply:
Your misuse of statistics was not very honest was it?[He attaches the same bar chart that actually supports Jacob Meza]
Only 7% of members of the American National Academy of Scientists believe in god.
Talesin effectively points out that the bar chart agrees with what Jacob Meza's statement.
The 7% figure refers to the NAS and comes from a different study.But no concession or apology to Jacob Meza No link to the "different study".
Cofty, that is twice that you have done that sort of thing, on this thread alone. Perhaps you are just reading the comments and replying a bit to fast, and making mistakes. You have done excellent work, particularly in relation to demonstrating a large number of proofs that evolution is reality. You are a clear thinker, and a great deal of thought and research has gone into them. Great job! However, it is not your role to play high speed "wack a mole" with every potentially non-conforming opinion posted here. Or please at least take better aim.
Those comments are intended to be constructive, not negative, by the way.
