The most interesting stats to me:
-87% of scientists vs 32% of the public accept evolution by natural selection
-8% of scientists vs 22% of the public accept evolution by a supreme being
Obvious question: with 95% (edit: another stat says 97%) of scientists accepting evolution, where do creationists get off saying scientists are divided? That's definitely a false claim, with only ignorance stopping it from being an outright lie.
I'm curious how the percentages would change if medical scientists were excluded from the mix. Additionally, I wonder if the reason chemists have the highest belief in God (41%) is because there was an engineering influence in the survey (engineers typically are more theistic/religious).
Not surprised that geoscientists and physicists expressed the highest disbelief (47% and 46%, respectively). Not only are those fields attractive to non-theists, none of the material is especially God-friendly.
(The climate change stats are also interesting, but I'm out for now.)
You have scientists, and you have dumb people.
You have two types of people - those who categorise people into two categories and those who don't.

How so ?
