33. I asked why you think that is? And why were the testers able to predict that?

And, this is what the study concluded about the rowers:

Of primary interest, and as predicted, rowers in the high-stress condition reported greater belief in science (M = 4.03, SD = 0.87) than rowers in the low-stress condition (M= 3.54, SD= 0.86), t(98)=2.82, p= .006, d= 0.57. Thus, the novel measure of belief in science differentiated between individuals facing different levels of stress. The greater belief in science observed in the high-stress condition is consistent with the notion that belief in science may help secular individuals to cope with stress.
