I know exactly 8 persons with doctor's degrees in math or science. Of these, 7 are athiests and one is Catholic.

Any other scorekeepers?

I know twelve I can think of off the top of my head. Of these, 9 are atheists or agnostic, 1 is Bhuddist (he's Chinese), 1 is Moslem (he's Iranian) and 1 is a Christian fundamentalist nutcase who is convinced that -- in his view -- since Einstein and God can't both be right, Einstein has to be wrong. In his field, he's brilliant. But outside his field, he's a bit of a laughingstock. He has spent years writing "scholarly" papers attempting to prove that Einstein's math is wrong and the papers get rejected when his OWN math (and logic) turns out to be not only wrong, but wrong headedly wrong.

And each time he's proven wrong, he simply says, "Einstein can't be right, and some day I'll prove it."
