science and religion

I found an interview between Bill Maher and Dr. Collins who led the Human Genome Project about his religious beliefs and how a man of science could believe in religion. In the video there's a statement that 93% of scientists in the American National Academy of Scientists are Atheist or Agnostic. This not only surprised me but suggested a correlation between the two. They are most likely firm Sagan believers and feel that if they cannot prove something then they do not believe it, which would account for the lack of religion. Religion is after all based on belief and not evidence.
