Can you be a good scientist and believe in a magic god fairy?
These questions mean the same thing:
Can you be a good scientist and disgrace your profession?
Can you be a good scientist and be a superstitious idiot?
Can you be a good scientist and be a member of an anti-science cult?
Can you be a good scientist and be partly responsible for the world's out of control religious violence, including the 9/11 terrorist attacks?
If you believe in a magic god fairy you share an idiotic childish fantasy with assholes who attack science education, who brainwash their children, and who wear suicide belts. You may have made some important scientific discoveries but you're part of the problem. You should be ashamed of yourself.
