Easterbrook seems to be saying that physics departments are a hotbed of anti-religious sentiment. That is not true. There are a lot of devoutly religious physicists; some of them are string theorists. I'm not particularly religious, but I *am* a string theorist and I work in a physics department. I've never seen or even heard of someone being treated like a "superstitious crank" for having religious convictions. That may be how it works in Easterbrook's head, but not in the real world.Or this gentleman, Professor Henry Margenau: Why I am a Christian
Dear Roy:There's more. Google it.
In a recent telephone conversation you requested that I clarify, or perhaps amplify, my claim that I am a physicist and a Christian. I fully understand this request, for there exists a wide-spread view that regards science and religion in general as incompatible. Let me therefore point out, first of all, that this belief may have been true half a century ago but has now lost its validity as may be seen by any one who reads the philosophical writings of the most distinguished and creative physicists of the last five decades. I am referring here to men like Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg, Schroedinger, Dirac, Wigner and many others.
