Nobel Prize Stats By Religion

Post by Brooke » Mon Nov 30, 2015 2:22 pm

Here are some interesting and startling facts regarding Nobel Prize winners by religion.

Between 1901 and 2000 reveals that 654 Laureates belong to 28 different religions.

Most 65.4% have identified Christianity in its various forms as their religious preference. While separating Roman Catholic from Protestants among Christians proved difficult in some cases, available information suggests that more Protestants were involved in the scientific categories and more Catholics were involved in the Literature and Peace categories.

Atheists, agnostics, and freethinkers comprise 10.5% of total Nobel Prize winners; but in the category of Literature, these preferences rise sharply to about 35%.

A striking fact involving religion is the high number of Laureates of the Jewish faith - over 20% of total Nobel Prizes (138); including: 17% in Chemistry, 26% in Medicine and Physics, 40% in Economics and 11% in Peace and Literature each. The numbers are especially startling in light of the fact that only some 14 million people (0.02% of the world's population) are Jewish.

By contrast, only 5 Nobel Laureates have been of the Muslim faith-0.8% of total number of Nobel prizes awarded - from a population base of about 1.2 billion (20% of the world‘s population)

Not startling at all, and really not that interesting either.

Were you trying to make some kind of point?

Interestingly, only 47 of 893 Nobel recipients have been women (5.26%). This despite the fact that there are 3.58 billion women on earth. Clearly, women should be hated and feared almost as much as Muslims.

I am constantly surrounded by smart women .. I fear them because I'm outgunned and "outthunk" most of the time ... hell, ALL of the time. :hide:

I also agree with Crayegg, not that interesting ... or surprising

In what category does President Obama's Nobel fall? Did he win it as a Christian, Muslim or godless heathen?
Worst choices for president in my 35 + years of voting.

Garsh MDDad, you are such a smarty-pants I am surprised that you don't know the answer to that. It is the same reason most women don't make as much in salary as men do. Their careers are interrupted with raising children and keeping a home for their families.

Of course it is startling and interesting crayegg. And aren't you curious as to why Muslims have been awarded so few Nobel Prizes compared to their population and the contributions of excellence mostly men of other religions? Ancient Islam contributed important inventions to the world. That doesn't happen now.

Why have so many Jews been awarded Nobel Prizes and Christians?

Smarter...better focus...education is primary to Jews.

Which Christians have been awarded to the Jews?
