How to stop ‘anti-religion’ beliefs being pushed by science and religion

AUSTRALIA’S scientists say they’re being targeted by a new kind of “anti-science” belief system, which claims scientists have no right to question the religious beliefs of others.

Key points:Science and religion clash on the role of science and moralityIn a survey by The ABC, 51 per cent of scientists and 58 per cent believe their research can be used to make a case for or against religion, and that religion is not as legitimate as science.

The survey also found more than half of Australians believe there is no scientific evidence for any of the claims in the new belief system.

The ABC has been contacted for comment.

In the survey, conducted by the Australian Humanist Association and the Australian National University, more than a third of all Australian scientists (35 per cent) believe the research community is biased in favour of religion, compared to less than one-third of scientists (23 per cent).

“This is not a new phenomenon, it’s not an academic debate, it has been happening for decades,” Dr Stephen Williams, a member of the AHA’s Research Committee, told the ABC.

“But it’s something that is not happening in Australia.”

I think the problem is we’ve just not talked about it enough.

We need to talk about it more.

“The idea that scientists have a moral duty to engage in research that is likely to be controversial and potentially controversial in the community is an idea that’s been around for decades.”

Dr Williams said that even when scientists engage in debate, they must be mindful of the consequences.

“It’s important that we think through what’s happening and how that impacts on the way we engage with other people, so that we’re not going to get in trouble for engaging in something that might be controversial,” he said.

“That means there are risks in doing so.”

The survey was commissioned by the ATHA and also looked at views on science and religious beliefs.

The survey found that more than one in three Australian scientists believe there’s no scientific basis for their research and believe it’s “unethical” for scientists to question religious beliefs and beliefs of those they study.

Dr Williams, who is the president of the Australian Science Council, said he was surprised by the survey’s findings.

“This doesn’t sound like a big deal to me,” he told the BBC.

“You can’t just say that scientists are not really interested in scientific research, and I’m not surprised at that, but when you talk about that and you say you don’t think that scientists should engage in that, it really sounds like you’re really not in favour at all.”

AUSTRALIAN scientist say religious beliefs are more legitimate than scientific onesIn the same survey, more Australians agreed that science was the “strongest tool” to help people understand the world, with a further 17 per cent saying religion should be the “mainstay” of research.

It’s not the first time the AFA has received research suggesting the Australian public has a negative view of religion.

Dr Williams says his group has not received any official requests to stop engaging in research, but has received requests to remove references to religion from some of their research.

“There have been a number of requests that we’ve received from universities to remove those references and say, ‘This is where we see the most negative views of religion and religion are in Australia,'” he said, explaining that he would not be surprised if some universities were not satisfied with the results of their own research.

He also said that a small minority of people have found a “good” way to make the case for religion in research.

The study also found that people believe their religious beliefs should not be “traded for” in the workplace.

“People are not interested in the research being used to validate their religion,” Dr Williams said.

It’s not really a problem.'””

We have a society that’s really worried about people saying, ‘Well, I can do science because of my religion.

It’s not really a problem.'”

Dr Williams also said he hoped that other researchers would consider what their research has shown about religion.

“What is the evidence that shows that we have this kind of anti-religiosity?”

The evidence that has been presented to us so far is really, really, very mixed.

“We don’t have the data yet to say, well, let’s just get a different way of looking at it.”
