I would feel much better if my doctor was a total Atheist.
If my doctor was a total Atheist, then my doctor would understand that there is absolutely nothing twinkly sparkly feel good going to happen after I
die, and because there is no second chance, and absolutely nothing, I think my doctor would have a greater and more profound respect for life.
If anyone thinks there is some kind of afterlife, I am immediately suspicious that their view on life NOW is cheapened, and discounted, because they
think when they die, there's actually going to be something else.
Ho-hum, they've got heaven now. That's wishful my-little-pony care-bear strawberry-shortcake tinkerbell nonsense.
As to swearing on principles idealized as representative foundations of some Greek gods, or something along those lines; cool. I feel safer with
doctors believing in Greek gods than some Christian, or Muslim or other sort.
