I didn't specify scientists, I did specify academics/incredibly clever people though. Similar argument, really. 'I have to wholeheartedly disagree with that. There are countless numbers of incredibly clever people who believe irrational things like the fables of the Bible and the Qu'ran. All the other parts of their academic lives are filled with logic and reason, but when it comes to religion, they chuck it right out the window. The religious conviction that is felt in religion is absolutely enough to push rational people into doing irrational things.'
