God hypothesis

“The party line among scientists — believers and nonbelievers alike — is that science and religion are what Stephen Jay Gould called “non-overlapping magisteria.” In 1998 the US National Academy of Sciences issued a

statement asserting “Science can say nothing about the supernatural. Whether God exists or not is a question about which science is neutral.”

“Yet according to a survey the same year, 93 percent of the members of the academy do not believe in a personal god.

Since about the same percentage of all US citizens say they do believein a personal god, it makes one wonder what, if not their science, leads the elite of US scientists to differ so dramatically from the general population.”

Whether God exists or not is a question about which science is neutral.

While “science” is neutral, the scientists are not?
