What I meant by that statement is this. Those christians eventually becomes atheists.

Are you saying that they then clean up their lives and don't act so immoral anymore?

Perhaps because it's part of the fun life has to offer?

In reality even animals, have sets of unwritten rules, that govern their behaviors, and relationships with each other, that insures the survival of their tribes. The human animal just has sets of more complex rules, that often get codified into laws, that protect and foster their respective tribes, societies, and nations.

Why be moral, why do good? Well perhaps because we feel better about ourselves when we do. Even if no dictum or moral obligation can be produced, it might not be all that necessary. People will continue to behave as they normally do, with some degree of empathy, some degree of generosity, some degree of resentment, some degrees of hostilities, as they always do, and always leaning on the sentiments they see as the most beneficial, which often tends to be mutually beneficial.

Why doesn't every one just go out and murder, rape, and pillage? For the simple reasons that for most people this is entirely unappetizing and repulsive as it gets.

Not being able to see something doesn't mean it can't be detected so if you meant that literally then it is just wrong. If you meant that you can't prove or disprove the existence of something that can't be detected then the question would be why you would believe it exists.

We can't see or understand dark matter,yet,we know it exist.

Sorry, no, that is just fractally wrong. The burden of proof lies with the person making the claim and the age of the claim is irrelevant. Even if theism had been universally accepted without question for all that time it would still have the burden of proof when the first questions arose, As it is, atheism can be traced back thousands of years anyway. Do a simple search for atheism in ancient history and you will find examples.

If you have experience an animal that killed another animal without the said animal being hungry or being threatened,gladly share with the forum

I used to have a symbiotic relationship with a Norwegian Forest Cat.

She used to kill birds by leaping from the ground and swatting them out of the air.

She would then bring them into the house ... perhaps as a gift, or maybe just to show off her skill. She didn't eat them nor was she threatened by them.

I miss her quite a bit. Heart

You just said man created religion, and then you suggest religion is not only legitimate but predates non-religion? You're all kinds of stupid, aren't you? And again, you still don't comprehend burden of proof, which isn't suprising given your posts.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.
