Religious scientists may be a problem for religious birthday wishes, a new study says.
The study is based on a survey of 5,000 U.S. adults.
The survey was carried out between December 15, 2015, and December 30, 2016, by Ipsos Public Affairs Research.
It asked respondents, “How likely are you to wish for someone to have a religious birthday?”
The question was included in the 2016 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index survey.
“The percentage of respondents who wished for someone’s birthday to be religious has been decreasing in recent years, but religious scientists have made up a larger share of the population in recent decades,” study author and psychologist Jennifer Dittrich said.
“As a result, the number of respondents with a religious religious birthday wish has increased since at least 2012.”
While respondents were asked whether they wished for a person’s birthday, they were asked which religion they attended, and whether they attended church or synagogue, and if so, how often.
More than half of the respondents (53 percent) said they had attended church at least once a month or more, and more than two-thirds (68 percent) had attended synagogue at least one time a month.
Dittrich, a research psychologist at the University of Southern California, said religious scientists may not be particularly religious.
“A recent study by DittRich and colleagues found that religious scientists are more likely than other religious Americans to say that religion and faith are very important in their lives,” she said.
“They are more concerned about their health, about their family and about social issues such as bullying.”
DittRich said she suspects that the study subjects are more religious than the general public.
“It seems that they are not very religious in general, but they are quite religious in particular,” she told ABC News.
“We don’t know that for sure.
I think it may be because they are practicing scientists who have their own beliefs about how religion should be practiced.
We don’t really know how well they understand the concept of religion.”
Ditrich said that some religious scientists’ beliefs may be influenced by their own experience as a scientist, which can also influence their responses to the question.
“One of the things that surprised me was the fact that there is a lot of overlap in people’s religious beliefs with their science expertise,” DittRed, said.
She said that the lack of knowledge and knowledge about science among religious scientists can also affect their views about the scientific method.
“I think that they may be using the same methods that they use in their own lives to understand their faith,” she added.
The researchers found that respondents who attended religious services more often or who prayed more often were more likely to wish their religious birthday to happen.”
It could also be that they do not understand how science is conducted and they don’t understand the significance of their own scientific findings.”
The researchers found that respondents who attended religious services more often or who prayed more often were more likely to wish their religious birthday to happen.
The researchers also found that there was no correlation between respondents’ views about religion and their religious observance, including attendance, and said that it could be that those who attend religious services and pray more often are more aware of their religious beliefs and less likely to change their beliefs.
DitRich said that more research is needed to understand why religious scientists seem to have an easier time finding religious people who wish for their birthday to have religious meaning.
“There are a lot more people who do wish their birthday will be religious than there are who do not wish their own birthday will have religious significance, and that could be part of the reason why we are seeing such an increase in religious scientists,” she explained.
“They may not want to have to worry about how their family, their church or their synagogue views their religion and what their beliefs are, but that is the kind of people that they wish to have as religious partners.”
