A certain conundrum arises, between religion and evolution.

Nice group, I hate the view that you need to believe in the supernatural to be a good person

I still can't believe that there is no Secular Humanist organisations in Croatia... every one else has it!

I think secularity is more than the seperation between the religious establishment and the state, it is a philosophical position regarding the relationship between religion and reason. As a secularist I believe reason must come first.

On the subject as doing your job as you, I've been thinking of starting a Body Mod Rights group here in Savannah GA. I've found that it can be hard to have a job with things like piercings and tattoos, or any noticable change to the human body. I'm not sure this is the place for such a comment, but I don't believe that the workplace is the setting for an oppinion on a subject, such as religion, way of life, or polotics, therefore I do not believe that someone should be fired for being a certain race or having a certain sexual preferance, or religous preferance, and the preferance of how you lead your life-style, in this respect should be the same. Would you fire a hinu bride for wearing the mark of marriage on her forehead? The rings in my lip are no less important to me. I am not a polotician... help me out... how would I even start something like this?

Well, that last paragraph was a conglomeration of convoluted words. It should read -
The people who know me respect me because I respect their views and demand the same from them.

As a matter of fact, my income is in the 150K/yr range, and yes, my opinion does mean more than my job. I don't push it on anybody, but I sure don't hide it either when others bring up subjects. If I can't get my job done as me, I sure as all hell am not going to be a phony to keep my job, unless I'm actually a phony.
I guess that's why I continue to make good money. The people know me and respect me not because I respect their views and demand the same from them.

No, you are misreading. If you actually thought your opinions were more important than your job, you are either habitually unemployed, a terrible provider for your family, or a terrible employee. Do you really think that when you are paid to do a job, that your personal feelings are paramount? Or did I misread?

In my job, no one gets hurt and I am quite okay with it on an ethical and moral standpoint.

Did I just see you write that you're job is more important than your you? Or am I misreading what you said?

I disagree. My job is not to debate religion with my co-workers, customers, suppliers, etc.. If my job is to sell so many widgets a year to conservative Christians, me being a liberal atheist challenging every mention of God will not help me achieve that goal.

As I have said before, all situations are different and there is no one size fits all position.
