Only 10% of the Nobel prize winners are atheist ?
Hi all,

I was very surprised to discover that only 10% of the Nobel prize winners are atheist:

This info contradicts everything I've heard before, that there is a strong negative correlation between intelligence and religiosity.

For example:

Moderator Notice
Ditto

How do you explain this?
Pray to the Lord.

Nobel prize in what? You are aware it's more than one award right?

Then you maybe should stop listening to nonsense?

I had the notion/idea that people usually win a Nobel prize for scientific discoveries.

Like Albert Einstein for example, or Ada Yonath that discovered the structure of the Ribosome, or Dan Shechtman that discovered a new crystal structure.

Maybe I was wrong.

No, that's not nonsense, smart people usually don't believe in God.
Pray to the Lord.

People get awarded for their contribution, not their religious beliefs. Most people are religious, therefore most of the people who get any award, for anything.....are religious.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

That is inaccurate, scientists also contribute a lot to the world and most of them are not religious ...

Is there something confusing about a majority demographic being well represented in a sample?

@Daniel Wilson  Welcome woof noob!

Why do you think Nobel is only about science?

Why do you think science negates religion? People in all walks of life hold beliefs that should be causing cognitive dissonance, but they adjust and compartmentalize.
