What are you working on? Also, could you recommend me for anything else? I think I'm done working here. I don't mean to be that guy, but this place is rife with long hours, no lunch breaks, office drama, and a ton of racism. I really don't see why you even started this company. It seems like a bust.

Woah woah woah. Chill with the name calling. No need to bring it to that level. Also, not all atheists are necessarily in support of abortion.

I have not met an Atheist who says all fetuses should be aborted, I see certain case situations where it might save the life of the mother or prevent the fetus from having complications later on in life. Abortion will happen one of two ways; The woman self harms herself to terminate the pregnancy or there is the SAFE way of terminating the pregnancy. What Pro-Choice supporters want is for a safe alternative. Is it questionable? Sure. So is not allowing the choice.
I personally am an Agnostic Atheist with influence from Asian ways of life/religions and Humanist Judaism (It's a branch of Reform Judaism)

More progressive ideas to blame? Not likely. Things fell apart after our unions got busted by a swarm of locusts management sent at us. Not to progressive there. People also got mad when their safe space stickers all somehow magically went away. You need to be around more. You're out of touch with the company. Don't let others run things for you. But then again, why would you even care? As you've already stated, the universe is a for-profit company, and all of this is just more money in your wallet, no matter what we do.

It's not a dichotomy between atheism and Christianity. Neither of them is true. Instead, you have me. My divine command is to find and look into the Shining Trapezohedron, by the way, so get going!
If you come into contact with the Shining Trapezohedron, please bring it to me. Or just look into it. Either one is fine.

Also, I must not that in searching for such an image I came across a number of NSFW angel/demon sex illustrations that I don't think I could exaggerate. I mean, it's awesome that the internet CAN do that, but that's not what I was searching for. Bad google, bad.

I was atheist for about half of my life and I was anti-abortion the whole time (11 yrs). I'm actually less restrictive in my views of abortion now than that I'm theist then when I was atheist.
