Does science lead to atheism?
Over at The Panda’s Thumb, Matt Young asks the question whether science leads to atheism. His answer is a definite “No” and he uses as his springboard an entry that he and I wrote for the New Encyclopedia of Unbelief (Prometheus, 2007; you can read the full entry, on “Unbelief among scientists,” here). As Matt points out,
[o]ne of the conclusions we drew was that biologists, anthropologists, and psychologists were more likely to disbelieve in God than physical scientists and engineers. That conclusion has recently been called into question,
and he goes on to discuss some of the work that has appeared since our entry was composed.
