That was very fashionable mustache type for gentlemen in those days. The man on the extreme left is Peter Debye, famous Dutch physicist who himself fled Nazi Germany where he was teaching. The civilized world should be grateful Hitler was such maniacal anti-semite, since many of top scientists were Jewish. Had Nazis not caused many to flee Germany they might have developed atom bomb first, which is truly frightening thought to contemplate.

change my mind? It gives me a sense of relief that they aren't fooled by religious nonsense.

Only if you're too ignorant to understand what was going on :)

Here's a quote from Wikipedia which might change your mind: "Werner Heisenberg [in Physics and Beyond, 1971] recollects a friendly conversation among young participants at the 1927 Solvay Conference about Einstein and Planck's views on religion. Wolfgang Pauli, Heisenberg and Dirac took part in it. Dirac's contribution was a poignant and clear criticism of the political manipulation of religion, that was much appreciated for its lucidity by Bohr, when Heisenberg reported it to him later. Among other things, Dirac said: "I cannot understand why we idle discussing religion. If we are honest - and as scientists honesty is our precise duty - we cannot help but admit that any religion is a pack of false statements, deprived of any real foundation. The very idea of God is a product of human imagination. [...] I do not recognize any religious myth, at least because they contradict one another. [...]" Heisenberg's view was tolerant. Pauli had kept silent, after some initial remarks, but when finally he was asked for his opinion, jokingly he said: "Well, I'd say that also our friend Dirac has got a religion and the first commandment of this religion is 'God does not exist and Paul Dirac is his prophet.'" Everybody burst into laughter, including Dirac.

Good grief - what an astounding array! It's surprising that their collective intelligence didn't form a black hole.
