What would be a good career for an atheist ?

I'm probably about due for another career change.

Anyone have any suggestions as to a good career choice for an atheist.  

I'm guessing clergyman is going to be out (except C of E of course).

Both sensible suggestions and humorous one will be appreciated.

Why not a doctor?

We tend to thrive in roles where our complete lack of a moral compass is useful; abortionist, abattoir worker, mercenary, journalist personally I'm a civil servant.

Have you done one of those tests that match your personality and abilities to a career?

My father did one after a life-time in construction management - it said he should become a midwife

No, then you run for president!

You could always try for Pope, but you'd have to join the Church first, and I think your lack of belief might count against you.

How about Vatican Press Officer?

Undertaker?
Farmer Geddon

Surely to be Pope, a lack of belief is a requirement?

Right.  I was fortunate enough to be able to retire early.  I have to fight myself not to sped too much time on these forums.

My husband retired early after 14 years as a secondary school head teacher. He went on to become an Education consultant and did a nine month stint as a university lecturer at Sussex University in 2005. Sadly since his brain haemorrhage in 2006 he hasn't been able to do any work of an academic nature, which really frustrates him!

I spend far too much time on forums too, although I do switch off the computer around 7.30pm until about 7.30am. I pop in and out during the day between chores etc.
