What do scientists actually believe about religion?

There is a 2010 Oxford University Press book, Science vs. Religion: what scientists really think by Elaine Howard Ecklund, a Professor of Sociology at Rice University. It is based on a survey of 1700 scientists at leading US universities. The findings of this systematic study go against most popular stereotypes of scientists beings hostile to religion.

There is a nice book review in the Times Higher Education Supplement by Andrew Briggs, Professor of Nanomaterials at Oxford.
