Egor you could've told me I was bullshitting you. You don't have to be polite and sarcastic about it.
You really need to get laid. With two cocks up your arse called rationality and atheism. Maybe when you come back to the forum, you will have all that unresolved sexual tension sort out. Don't push yourself. Angel

Maybe something easier to get rid of? Or at least less poisonous and harmful to the human spirit and dignity. We will never know and this makes me infinitely sad.
Things can always be worse. It could have been something even harder to escape and far more poisonous.

I somehow doubt it, but it is true that things can always be worse.

The monotheistic, semitic religions do encompass a lot of what's worse in religions/mythologies, though. I mean, I can hardly imagine anything worse than stifling man's natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge, while at the same time breaking his spirit and telling him he is a worthless peace of crap, but maybe my imagination is just not strong enough.

She warns you not to mess with her with every post.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Don’t you worry about hell? What makes you think you’ll escape it? Seriously, for all you know there is a hell and failing to grow spiritually gets you thrown in there. Don’t you worry about that? Evil_monster

Regardless what my beliefs have been through the years, Catholic, JW, non-denominational Christian, Atheist, my morals and sense of right and wrong have remained constant. With regards to needing a book or not, what about those civilisations that don't have a written law as such? I'm sure they know not to lie, cheat, commit adultery, murder etc., I don't do what is right just because it's written in any law book or because it's part of a penal code or whatever you like to call it. I do right because I want to do right by my fellow man and live with a clean conscience.

Well, if there is no God, I would say you have no reason for a conscience. That’s what I mean about atheists not following out the implications of their faith (the belief that there is no God). Smartass

Also, you need to learn to quote better if you want a response from me in the future. I’m only doing it this second time for you because you’re a pretty young woman. Drinking Beverage

Speak for yourself. For an admitted part-time troll, you certainly have a low threshold for shock humor.

That's nice of you. Confused


Quote:However, I must express my disagreement with the part of your post that I quoted. There are good and bad atheists just as there are good and bad Christians and good and bad people. Atheism neither makes someone good or makes them bad. The concepts of atheism and morality are completely separate. Unlike religion, atheism doesn't teach anything about morality.

That's right: there is no moral system in atheism. So a person is left to do what is right or wrong based on how they feel at the time. Angel Censored Evil_monster Hobo

Quote: And one does not have to believe in a religion to have good morals or to remain "uncorrupted". In fact, it is believing in religion that often leads to immorality. There are many things taught in religion that would be obviously immoral even to believers if one removed the "God says it's right" part.

How do you determine what is right and wrong?

(05-11-2012 12:12 PM)Impulse Wrote:  I'm beginning to see why you are uncomfortable with atheism. I don't find anything accurate in what you said here, but it does reveal your perspective about atheism. As an atheist, I feel no more worthless now than I did when I was a believer. Nor am I any more narcissistic or even anti-social. Quite on the contrary, life has infinitely more meaning with other people. We all depend on each other at various levels and humanity is better because of it (the whole is more than the sum of its parts). In fact, when I was a Catholic, it was all too easy to either look down on or pity non-Catholics because I was in the group that was "in the know". Today, as an atheist, there are no groups, just people (well ok, maybe groups of believers and non-believers). Without the groupings, it's far easier to be social with everyone, not just Catholics and to consider the true welfare of everyone, not just those who are following the "right" path.

Except now you look down on Catholics and think you’re in a group that’s “in the know.” So much for growth through atheism. Dodgy
