“Do you believe in God, sir?” I imagine that this is a question that science teachers, like me, get asked far more often than, say, English or Geography teachers. I usually answer with a simple “no, I don’t”, but I recently answered this question by saying “what do you think?” to which the student replied he thought I was probably an atheist because I was a “scientist”. He was right about me being an atheist, but I was an atheist long before I was any kind of “scientist”.
