RE: Putting morality to the test...
Morality supposedly comes from the bible, and yet the bible doesn't answer every question. These examples are fine, but might I also suggest the moral question of cannibalism? The Old Testament laws would make human meat "unclean", but no Christian subscribes to these dietary laws anymore (and if they made an exception for this, it would be special pleading). And there are no other passages of the bible that say anything about eating human flesh. Therefore, according to the bible, cannibalism is okay. But most of us agree, atheists and theists alike, that cannibalism is wrong.

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

(1) If very young take child to house to call police (risking paedophilia charge here in transit)


(2) Probably put animal out of its misery as quickly as possible.


(3) Find the options here too limited and the case too extreme..........certainly wouldn't pray.

Or just step by step disproving absolute morality and that atheists are more moral than theists:

To surrender to ignorance and call it God has always been premature, and it remains premature today.
