According to recent studies (available online) the majority of scientists believe in a god, of some sort.

But any good scientist will leave superstition at the door to the lab and pick it up again on the way out.

good scientist? You mean facebook Atheist?... Those who understand science.. Can understand religion too

Understanding it doesn’t mean it gets invoked in any science. In fact, it doesn’t. Science and sky fairies don’t mix.

Religion isn't a "leave at home" kind of thing. It's a worldview. And your worldview affects everything. Scientists who are religious often see their work as confirming the existence of whatever is at the center of their little universe, laws and theories in addition to themselves, a god, or God. An intelligent person that can speak fluently the language of the universe (math), and look at cold hard facts and still believe in God is impressive. So if these intellectual "gods" of sorts believe in a God, how could it be so illogical and how could it be superstition. Scientists are capable, with all of their knowledge and intellect, of being "superstitious"? The peasants and tribal people of our ancestry with no education and the bare necessities had superstition, but I hardly think well - educated, intelligent minds constantly bombarded with secular ideas in the 21st century would be prone to "superstition". It's a worldview. If they are correct, I guess they get the ultimate prize, if not we're all here by chance, life has no lasting value post-mortum, and the universe is a big beautiful accident.

‘Impressive’ to believe in something that has zero evidence of ever existing? I’m not sure you understand how science works. Most people believe in a god through indoctrination from birth. Then cognitive dissonance kicks in and the scientists that think logically can differentiate between real life and unsubstantiated fantasies

Not just scientists, but any critical/logical thinker.

Such a good question... Since atheists claim science as their watershed yet the very scientists producing the science dont uniformly claim atheism... Quite a conundrum

If anything it should be supremely easy and logical for the very scientists themselves to deduce that atheism is the path... But somehow they dont...

Cognitive dissonance at work. Even Einstein was a pantheist.

For this, I pretend it is just an idea unrelated to science

Although a science education can be a strong catalyst for losing your religious beliefs, there are many scientists on both sides of the theist vs. Atheist.

I’m very sure you’ll never find a credible science book that has any ‘god’ invoked in it.

Theist or atheist, science doesn’t care about superstitions.

You can have Faith without Science but you can't have science without Faith.

Evidence

Faith in the 5 senses.
Faith that mathematics is perfect

No such Faith no science
