Are these topics not a good idea to discuss in essays as a way to highlight diversity? I think my being atheist is somewhat unique and has definately shaped my way of looking at the world and affected the decisions I've made for what I feel is the better. However I could see how this could be interpreted as a negative by some people, especially when it conflicts with their own religious beliefs. I'm afraid that saying being an atheist has taught me to think critically and question everything, even though true and a part of me, may be looked at in the same way as if I said I learned business skills by being a drug dealer
Any thoughts on this?
