    There is a major difference between "cant" (sic) and "won't". The dichotomy is obvious. Your conclusion is unjustified.

    That is the outcome of a poll held according to the Amárach Research.

    They found that:

    73 per cent of scientists and 33 per cent of the public disagreed with the proposition that “humans evolved over time guided by a supreme being”.

    Conversely so 27% of scientists & 67% of the public agree there is a Supreme Being who guided Human Evolution!

    It was conducted with 1,000 adults and 238 scientists – based on a research format applied elsewhere by the non-partisan think tank the Pew Research Centre.

    Science Foundation Ireland commissioned the research, coinciding with Science Week Ireland 2017, to measure and compare opinions of the general public and the science community in Ireland.

    https://www.irishtimes.com/news/scie...-god-1.3289351

    TBH I though the numbers of scientists who believe in God would be a hell of a lot lower

    Certainly in public life I doubt that many would put their nose over the parapet

    Peer Group pressure?

    But Good News all the same that a considerable number of Scientists do actually believe in God
    and 100% educated right-handed cotton-wearing renault-driving peanut-eating of atheists do not believe in the sky fairy. And so, by the extension of your own warped logic, my argument is better than yours.

    Mods , please move this thread from 'education and Science' and put it into Mumbo Jumbo.

    Very easy in fact if you're one of the 7.5 billion who chose to ignore you, 'cos you're irrelevant. One way or the other it is that system that promotes human interdependence and not bloody minded self interested greedy arrogance that will hold sway.

    You and yours are about as dependable and trustworthy as a crocodile feeding at a major river crossing.

    BYW I have no need of a deity.
