Yeah we'll never be as moral as molesting young children.
11/12/2008 5:02:39 PM
Really? Prison statistics beg to differ.
11/12/2008 5:04:44 PM
Don't think so.

people of faith have no firm sense of reality, unlike atheists.

The only morals fundies seem to stick to are the ones that would persecute the most number of people who are not themselves.

Well since your problem is with atheist liberals, how do you feel about atheist conservatives like Christopher Hutchins?

a mind far far away
Mirror Award. There's been alot of those here recently. But, I'll believe it when I see it. Atheists generally are much more moral than "people of faith". And I bet that by "faith", you mean your particular branch of christianity.

Uh-huh...I have two words for you. HONOR KILLINGS.
11/12/2008 5:51:57 PM
Because people of faith never do anything immoral, right?

Christians have no firm sense of reality. Unlike people of reason.

Allegory for Jesus
We may not have a firm sense of morality, but our morality is better for it, in that we concern ourselves only with the bare essentials and take circumstances into consideration, which people with strict dogmatic "moral codes" cannot do.
Please, tell me, if you get morality from the Bible, what forbids you from rape? Tell me...

It's amazing to see something like this right next to a post by JesusChrist69 suggesting putting atheists in concentration camps.

Let's be honest: the world is full of scumbags, some of whom are atheists, and some deeply religious. It also contains many thoroughly decent people, and the same applies. There seems to be little connection between religious faith OR the lack of it and a "firm sense of morality". What morality does connect with is something more elusive, a sense of one's responsibility to oneself, to others and to the planet that might be called spirituality. However, this takes many forms and theists don't have a monopoly.

Many Christians are moral, in spite of their religion.

"Really? Prison statistics beg to differ."
Now now, those prison statistics are biased.
Everybody knows you get better treatment by the Parole Board if you tell them you've Found the Lord.

But seriously, I hope you die.

People of faith have no firm sense of sentence structure, unlike atheists.

Unlike atheists, fundies have no firm sense of when they are completely batshit crazy.
Fixed, and sentence structure is better.

Atheist with a very firm sense of morality here to call you on your bullshit.
I've seen religious people say that the only thing that keeps them from going on a mass murder spree is that they think that an invisible man in the sky said it's a bad idea, to me that demonstrates an extreme lack of a firm sense of morality.
The thing that stop me from going on a mass murder spree (aside from the obvious fact that if I did that I'd go to jail), is that I have empathy and compassion for my fellow humans, and I consider the lives of thinking, feeling human beings to be inherently valuable, not because a god said so, but because they are unique individuals with their own abilities and personalities which (usually) make the world a richer place by existing.

What this person really should be saying is:
I am a moronic, judgemental crazy fundie who will one day realize, upon dying, that it was all for naught. That is all.
