Atheists in Consulting

When do y’all think the US will elect an Atheist president? (Foreigner asking)

Honestly speaking I think they did already. I don’t think Trump is a believer - no matter what your political views are, he’s too arrogant to believe there is a higher power than himself :)

Fair point. But when will they elect someone who openly claims to be an atheist?

Probably not. I am an outsider but I have observed that majority of Americans are incredibly religious. Coming out as an atheist will make sure that they will lose half of the country.

I wouldn’t necessarily care about religious belief. If they are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, that doesn’t bother me. When will we elect someone who separates their religious views from how they govern? Sadly not sure....

Thanks but I think you’re over complicating the issue. At least when I asked the question I was using the term in the literal sense - someone who doesn’t believe in god / gods. What you are describing is “obsession with one’s own belief and forcing it into others” which exists among atheists and religious people and is not what I was asking about.

I think standing up for atheism is a big and bold step, probably not something anyone is going to risk moving for that job....

Agreed at least in the near term and find it incredibly sad

Atheism polls worse than any other identity/affinity/demographic.

Feel kind of silly saying this, but getting more concerned about covid-19. I’m 28 y/o, generally healthy but think I may have high blood pressure, which I’ve read raises risk. Anyone else feel similar

I don’t get why the entire world is freaking out about Covid19. (1) be cautious, (2) don’t visit elderly relatives, but the way I see it- everyone’s going to come into contact with it- it’s inevitable

One of my biggest takeaways from this whole situation is that the Wall Street Journal is a top, top source of daily news. Content, speed, minimal bias.

Anyone else still have the pinned post about the A wanting to WFH? Super irrelevant now (and tbh I find all pinned posts annoying and wish we could opt out...)?

To the Republicans here, how can you sit there and watch the government you elected totally screw this virus response up? Watching an interview with a FEMA admin, and they don’t have a number...
