Oh Indian scientists (!!)

A believer of E=mc2 may put extra condition on his believing of scientific fact. Yes, it’s not about a common man with his faith or his Secularism.

It’s about Scientists (!!) and who are they……..

The Institute for the Study of Secularism in Society and Culture of Trinity College, Connecticut conducted a survey of the world views and opinions of Indian scientists last year. 1130 scientists, all of them holding doctorate degrees, from 130 univers
ities and research institutes were surveyed.

Among other results of the survey:

only 66% of the respondents thought that biological evolution was a definite fact;

41% approved of scientists visiting temples before launching satellites;

23% felt that scientific organizations should never confront religious practices that go against scientific theory.

Here below two of the most shocking graphs from the report of the study:
