    It would not make a difference for I would not depend upon them for my survival. Neither probably have any survival skills.

    Ha ha!  What makes you think scientists are hands-on survivalists?

    I see where you are going with this !  Bear in mind that priests in Victorian times

    were botanists and highly respected naturalists, with a deep understanding

    of the natural World many of the early books on scientific subjects were written by Priests and their knowledge was considerable.

    A scientist would probably be of more help in survival skills.  Listening to a priest babble about his superstitious nonsense wouldn't help anyone.

    Depends on the scientist's field of study.

    Why choose?

    Several of my university professors were priests of one sort or another

    including two of my physics professors.

    If I HAD to choose, I'd say a scientist as he/she might be able to come up with ideas and things to help ease such an exile.

    However, having anyone with you would be better than having no one.

    That's like smart versus stupid.  I would choose a scientist because he would be a better lover.
