Quote# 1368

If I abandon a Christian worldview, I see no plausible reason - other than purely selfish reasons - to be a Moral person. In fact, [and I know this will be contraversial] but I believe that many of these crimes are strictly due to a lack of the Christian worldview, although, paradoxically I find that many Christians [?] engage is such activities. If Christianity is proven false, do what you wanna do, as long as you come out alive and on top, Who cares... pure Hedonism is championed. Does that answer your question?

Wanting God points IS a purely selfish reason to be a moral person.

Oddly enough, we noticed that, too. Throws a monkey wrench in your assumptions, doesn't it?

What's wrong with being selfish (putting one's self first) occasionally? And what's wrong with wanting to feel good? Personally, I find being a moral person makes me feel good... pure hedonism, if you will. Gods DAMN this Puritan worldview that's poisoned North America, this idea that it's somehow wrong to enjoy yourself.

And where did fundies get the idea that enjoying yourself necessarily means running amok in an orgy of rape, theft and murder? Makes you wonder...

@ Crimson Lizard.
Wondering indeed. I'm enjoying myself right now, surfing on the net, and soon I'll be enjoying myself with helping my brother build a woodshed. I might also enjoy myself later with reading a book or solving a cross-word puzzle.

Morality is a personal choice and does not require a religion.

How about the simple fact that when you hurt another person it causes them pain. That's my reason.
