On a side note, does anyone know if Seth Andrews has a day job? I'd be curious to know if this site and this community have affected his day to day work, working relationships, etc.

I don't work, so nope!

On the side note,; yes, Seth does indeed have a day job as a video producer.
He talks about this in his book Deconverted: A Journey From Religion to Reason, available at Amazon.com in hard copy and all fine Audiobook distributors.

RE: Out at Work
Yeah, but no worries here. My coworkers either don't care or are atheists as well, and my boss is gay; so I kinda doubt he is a religious fundamentalist.

You is some lame atheists - just thing the blacks couldn't be in the closet about their blackness.

Studies have shown that atheists are more intelligent than Christians - so they are the ones that need to keep it to their fucking selves.

I call Rule 5 on this motherfucker.

Quote:5) Maliciously Disrupting the Forum is Prohibited
Anyone who comes here with the sole intent of causing chaos and conflict is not welcome. Being intentionally overly disruptive is also not acceptable. In the event that it is felt by the forum Administration that a person is causing excessive issues then they will be officially warned. Failure to heed the warning may lead to temporary bans leading up to a permanent ban if the offending behaviour is not ceased. This is considered a last resort and only for the most serious situations. Anyone who is felt to be trying to manipulate this rule to get another member banned by causing controversy about them risks falling foul of this rule themselves.


FUCK this motherfucker.

With my day job, that doesn't matter. A bunch of folks here know. And I do ream a couple of god-botherers here just as bad as I do in this forum. It fills me with Joy, and Win. Thumbsup

Didn't really have to "come out", per se, its really been just a matter of speaking up when some moron starts vomiting the party line.

Can't help you with that one.

Yes. It is. And? It's a form of lying, but not a malicious or potentially harmful one. This makes it at worst neutral and at best beneficial. So lie away. And if you're ever feeling guilty about the lies, just remember you're no worse than the entire profession of Liars-To-Children (otherwise known as 'teachers'), whom society seems to regard, on the whole, as a positive group.

I disagree. If there are things in your life you want to keep private at work that is your right and it is not lying. Not broadcasting your religious views, whatever they may be, at work is the proper thing to do. I have told co-workers I am not interested in discussing various topics at work because I did not feel it was the proper environment.

Oh you must be the pride of the manager - you good worker bee, you.

Okay, so religion is out-of-bounds - what else, politics, sex???

Humanism - ontological doctrine that posits that humans define reality
Theism - ontological doctrine that posits a supernatural entity creates and defines reality
Atheism - political doctrine opposed to theist doctrine in public policy
I am right, and you are wrong - I hope you die peacefullyCool

I am a department manager.

Those topics have the potential to set up unnecessary conflicts between coworkers and really have no place in the office or on the work site. In reality they do happen and as long as they stay civil all is ok.
