Comment #470235 by lswanson:

It's world view, people. World view. That's why a pilot (or engineer or plane builder) can be a Bible-believing Christian or an atheist or a Muslim or a believer in Zeus or whatever and it has no bearing on his/her ability to fly (or build, as the case may be) the plane.


Only, it has every bearing on his abilities to fly. Your pilots may profess a belief in god, but when they sit behind that joystick, it's science that's most pilots' world view of choice.There is no Buddhist, or Christian, or Muslim way to fly a plane. There is the rational/scientific way, or, well, I guess there is the other way...that leads into buildings.I prefer my pilots to check-in their beliefs at check-in.
