  1. I am familiar with such statistics, although I have never met a single religious mathematician in my life. Maybe so terribly “lucky”.

    But just met physicists and more than once. Even in Soviet times.

    I remember there was a program where the main character was a certain Coffin, who allegedly could bring a deceased person back to life. There were two priests on the program, both of whom had previously graduated from the seminary… physical education departments.

    Grobovoy's criticism was particularly interesting. The priests insisted on conducting an “experiment” that would prove Coffin's abilities. But in the studio, one guy who seemed to be an atheist suggested that Coffin pass the” test “for the devil, reading” Our Father ” in reverse order.

    I was absolutely dying of laughter, priests acted like physicists, and an atheist like a priest.

  2. I don't want to hint at anything, but among the pagans of the wave of the 90s there were a huge number of physicists and chemists. Maybe the collapse of the USSR, and the loss of a clear future in some research institutes so much undermined their worldview that they all rushed to comprehend paganism, who knows.

    The most striking example is Nikolai Speransky. A physicist, which, as far as I understand, is quite serious. And a pagan magus. A bizarre fate.

    But then there is the biochemist Klesov and the mathematician Fomenko. I'm not sure that they have at least some religious connotation, but at least they are an example that not everything is so simple in scientific professions…

  3. CLARIFICATION: “Why are the vast majority OF APPLIED SCIENTISTS atheists? But is it very difficult to find an atheist among THEORETICAL SCIENTISTS?

    APPLIED SCIENTISTS are maximally connected with matter and energy (materialism) and minimally connected with abstract information, the world of ideas, and consciousness (idealism) – but this is all the opposite for THEORETICAL SCIENTISTS.
