Quote# 2312

What difference does it make in the long run or even the short run for that matter if we enslave men, or steal things that we need? If I need something and there is no God to punish me for anything then you can bet that I'm going to just take what I need, because I'm going to do what feels good to me at the time. Without God laws are based on feeling, what feels right to me, what feels right to you, and you have no right to tell me what is right for me, you are just another accidental animal.

I always hated people that say that they only do good because they either don't want to be punished, or want to be rewarded.

I'm sorry, but if you do a good deed because you will get rewarded for it, it does not have nearly the same effect as doing a good deed for the sake of doing a good deed.

Dr. Laura? Is that you?

If you can't form your own moral compass without rules set forth by your God, then you fail at having genuine love and compassion.

If I don't get severely punished, I don't have any reason to be nice.

If you only behave because you're afraid of the imaginary security camera in the sky then you are one sorry mofo.

Human evolution selected for people who helped each other and cared about the species.

It tried to weed out people who thought like you.

People like inverter are one of the major threats to the cause of Christ. Seriously.

All the atheists I've met serve a higher morality than so-called people of god like you.

I'd say that what really stops you from stealing my ipod is the shotgun I'd use to eradicate you, you parasite. Common sense is what keeps people from being nihilistic pricks, not God.

Well, we have these things called "feelings". It's what tells us when things are good or bad. Hurting someone is bad because it makes them feel bad and unpleasant. Therefore, don't do it.

Well, in the short run, members of some of America's paramilitary alphabet soup will taser and pepper spray you repeatedly until you void all of your bodily fluids before you vanish into the maw of the country's vast, uncaring 'correctional' gulag where you will suffer rape and gang violence while packaging Microsoft products for a buck fifty a month.
In the long run, you will be remembered, if at all, as a cunt.

If the only thing keeping you from being a murdering, human trafficking thief, then I hate to break it to you, but you are a terrible person.

I could smoke myself into an early grave, but I choose not to. Just the mere sight of those smoking behind the bike sheds at school was enough to put me off smoking for life. Never have, never will.

I could become a walking distillery, so as to make Oliver Reed seem a teetotaller, but I choose to drink in moderation. 1) The hangover I experienced for the first time at 19, served as the perfect aversion therapy. Never again. 2) Watching a relative die of complete circulatory collape, due to extreme alcohol poisoning - which wasn't a pretty sight - was the perfect object lesson.

I could take every known (& unknown) hallucinogen in existence, but I choose to be completely drug-free. I like my brain & how it works 'as is'; if it ain't broke, don't fix it, and all that jazz.

I could kill/mutilate/rape a man/woman/child; also damage/steal others' property, but I choose not to. Mainly because I wouldn't like it if someone else did such to me, ergo..! [/Code of Hammurabi]

Choice. 'Tis a most powerful thing indeed.

Jean Rasczak (Michael Ironside): 'Figuring things out for yourself is practically the only freedom anyone really has nowadays. Use that freedom.'

-"Starship Troopers"

The freedom to decide how one acts. Makes for a morally superior person, I find. I choose not to smoke/be an alcoholic/take drugs etc. I choose not to steal from/rape/kill others, because I can.

'When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion.'

-Abraham Lincoln

Being morally superior. Feels good, man.

Moral: Religions don't have the monopoly on them, you know. [/Hosea 13:16]

Does it hurt if I kick you in the shin? Yes - it causes pain to a real live person, living in the present, and that has nothing at all to do with god or judgement. That's what laws are based on, the fact that people feel pain (physical, emotional, financial) in the present day. If there were a god, he could put in his two cents worth after you die, but the law says nothing about that.
