Psychiatrists are the least religious of all physicians
Psychiatrists are the least religious of all physicians.
But one explanation for the results seems suspect to me:
An alternate explanation: as physicians learn more about the mind, the more they realize how the mind is designed to see patterns and connect the dots—even when patterns and dots aren’t really there. Modern shrinks, focused as they are on neurochemistry, are especially reductionist/materialist in their views on the mind/brain question.
Throw the idea of a soul into the theoretical mix and no wonder they prescribe so much Prozac!
