Interesting story in ‘The Conversation’

If you don’t know ‘The Conversation’, I’d highly recommend it and subscribing to their email notices.

It originated in Australia and there are now versions for many different countries (including Spain in Spanish – see the list under United Kingdom in dropdown menu at top of the article below) – and the articles are different in different versions but all by established university or similar academics and supported by universities worldwide.

This article in the UK version about atheist scientists is from academics at Rice and Georgia State universities.
