    Scientists know science and what they are talking about. Atheists are faggots who think they know science and try to act cool with it.

    Scientists are nicer than atheists when it comes to a debate. They don't insult each other a dumbass.

    Atheists are faggots.

    Atheists are moronic hypocrites. They reject something they have no information on. Their proof for god's lack of existence is "HURRPPP THE BIBLE IS POORLY WRITTEN THEAMAZINGATHEIST SED SO".

    It's funny how that's true yet 98% of scientists are atheists, agnostics or secular humanists.

    Many great scientists however, did somehow believe in a form of deity. Albert Einstein for example, believed in the Old One. His God supposely knows math very well and set up all the equations and physics laws.

    Pure atheists are just faggots.

    When Galileo said that the earth was round he was arrested by the Vatican and asked if he believed in God and if his statement was wrong. He said yes to both. But don't forget that when he was asked the question, he was threatened with hot iron in his eyes. When he was put under house arrest he famously declared, "E pur si mouve", "Yet it still moves".
    Einstein may have said that but he was saying it on an interview just after he found out that his good friend Michael Baso died, and after he tried to console his friend's family. But the fact remains that he does not believe in a personal anthropomorphic God that influences everything that we do and is the root cause of everything that is happening in the world.
    And to quote another famous scientist, "Christians dont belive in vishnu, or krishna, or thor, or odin, or athena, or zeus. Therefore, as they say, 'We are all atheists, I just go one God further.'" --Richard Dawkins

    You dont have to go far it's on wikipedia. It says that 66%are either atheist or agnostic. And while 1/3 are some form of deist, almost all the scientists say they are secular. Unfortunately I can't quote it exactly because I'm using a phone and there's no copy and paste on mine.

    Saying the overwhelming majority of scientists are atheists is an overstatement, but to say they are all secularists is not surprising.

    66% is not 98%, mate

    And I always take that polls with a grain of salt

    What is a "scientist"?
    Is posible to believe in some kind of deity and not be "religious" or be "secular"?
    Not believing in "Yavhe" is the same as "secular" or "not religious"?

    etc

    Also, data is contradictory, poll targets inconsistent between surveys, conclusions are poorly detailed

    again, etc

    Some examples:

    From Nature, circa 98: Disbelief in God and immortality among NAS biological scientists was 65.2% and 69.0%, respectively, and among NAS physical scientists it was 79.0% and 76.3%.


    Last important survey was by Rice University, 2005:
    Nearly 38 percent of natural scientists surveyed said they did not believe in God, but only 31 percent of the social scientists gave that response. Among each of the two general groups, one discipline stood out: Forty-one percent of the biologists and 27 percent of the political scientists said they don’t believe in God.

    Again, I wasn't saying they were all atheists. My point was that the majority of them are secular humanists that believe in complete freedom of thought and morality, regardless of the existence of any deities. OP was saying that atheists are generally assholes, while scientists are not, BUT since most scientists don't put any type of faith onto their work and most don't profess to any type of deitic power over them, his statement was a rather obscured generalization.
    You're right about the other 1/3 that didn't state they were atheist or agnostic being contradictory, because they live by eastern philosophies, like buddhism and taoism, or they are simply irreligious and apatheists.

    after reading some of Dawkings work i believe that he would object to some of the things being said and some of the attitudes adopted allegedly in his name.

    Some of his work is amazing, The Selfish Gene is one of the best books I've read in a while. However the man is still so far up his own ass he could wear his colon as a scarf.

    i disagree.
    i find his position to be reasonable.
    he is never nearly as offensive or pretentious as the people who are quick to quote his ideas as if they were their own.

    That may be true but have you seen his TV show? I'm afraid I can't remember what it was called but he came across as a twat.

    Scientists and Atheists:
    Scientists spend all day, doing nothing, but guess how everything works, without bothering to find proof because they hope the proof is already there.

    Athiests(like Christians, but not as smart), however, tells you that something is there, or not there, without any evidence.

    You're too blinded by everything you see on the internet and television to know the real truth.

    I might have exaggerated, a little bit, on that part.

    H.G Wells who practically gave berf to scifi as we know it, believed in God.

    A good scientist has an open mind, and through science may even find evidence that supports the existence of paranormal transcendental creator beings, if he is attentive.
