I need some feedback on what happened to me with regards to some atheist co workers. First some background: I am atheist for about 10 years now. I am currently taking a course with about 7 people including me and we are all atheist. If you want more background info. just let me know. So basically we had this very casual final exam. Since this course is not for credits but just educational. However our managers do appreciate it if we pass. We even get 2 more tries if you dont pass on the first try. My problem or concern was that during the exam about 4 out of the 7 students started to work together. The exam was semi - monitored and the trainer would appear once every 20 min or so. These 4 would literally ask each other what the answer of a questions is. Also the exam was computer generated so everyone had slightly different questions. Now I know that it doesn't matter what you believe, that will not stop you from doing something like cheating on an exam. However it got me thinking. For example personally don't believe but I would never cheat like that, they even asked me some questions and I said I cant help you. Now my reasons for not cheating Is not because I believe in sin or that its wrong or that you are offending some god somewhere. However the feelings I got were more along the lines of uncomfortable, dishonor, deceptive, untrustworthy. So now I'm wondering, did these 4 people not feel any of this? Do they regret it just a bit when they go home? Were they so desperate that they couldn't help themselves? It wasn't even an important exam. I just don't understand am I worried about nothing? Please let me know what you think. Thanks.
