Science is a religion, but unlike other religions, this one seeks after the absolute truth.
The lab is like a temple to a scientist.
If you say 95%(or something) scientist are atheist and skeptics, that's a false statement.
They believe in something, and that's nature(not naturalism) and its phenomena and whatever of secrets it hides(which by it self a phenomenon).
They are bound to their labs, bound to their research. What ever they are writing with their works using pen and paper, they are writing nothing but holy scriptures to be given to the present-day and near future aspired researchers, scientists, engineers and doctors.
I won't elucidate any more, it is more than clear in what I am trying to convey.
