Do other people assume what religion you practice by what you wear?:: no.
Are humans/animals naturally good/evil/neutral/depends?:: good and evil do not exist, they are merely represents of the prevailing views of society. when two tribes go to war, both think the other is 'evil'. they cannot both be right. therefore neither of them is. there are merely differing degrees of humanity.
Do you meditate/fast/chant/other?:: no.
