If you're just starting your career and feel nervous about it, thinking, "at least I didn't major in theology, I majored in something that matters" can help mentally while you struggle to get a foothold in your field of choice. The MBA types probably have a similar thought process towards you as an art major.

Interesting analysis...but I'm not really nervous. And I'm not even near starting my career, I haven't even technically started college yet (just a few more days).

If anything, I realize some religion centered career would probably be a better choice in most ways. Much higher success rate, I imagine.
Quote:I grew up in a missionary family. We ran a halfway house for ex-cons. While the god we prayed to was imaginary, the support we gave the residents by giving them housing and food and helping them find jobs was real. Many people who devote their lives to religion feed the hungry, tend the sick, make scientific discoveries, write gorgeous music, brew tasty beer etc., all of which are worthwhile activities.

Heh, never really thought about that. Undecided

We need MORE atheists in animation, not less. That's how stuff like Avatar gets made!

Never thought about actually stopping from doing it, even if it was hypocritical. It's just, you know, something that occasionally pops into my head.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.
