"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. "

My point is that my belief in God has no negative bearing on my ability to carry out scientific investigation - which is why you will find Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, pagan and atheist scientists all working successfully together on research projects. It is also why their are many scientists/doctors/professors who are also creationists.
