Though to be fair the idiot he's replying to is being an ass.

Wrong. Rape, torture and theft are both illegal and immoral. We don't need some scriptural nonsense to tell us that, and nobody ever said that morality is a religious construct. Indeed, quite the opposite, given the bloodlust which so many fundies show so freely.

Wrong. That is not atheism, that is anarchism. Sounds similar, I know, but they are quite different. Most atheists believe that as humans are social animals, we must show each other empathy and respect, to further the wellbeing for everyone, and most follow the Golden Rule, which predates your religion at least. More laws are based on the Golden Rule than on the Bible. The Bible says Thou shalt not kill, unless I thy God commands you to, and only two of the ten commandments are made into laws.
Most secular countries are governed by human rights and have stopped using the Death Penalty a long time ago.

Fark, huh? I'll say you do.
9/2/2012 6:48:01 AM
Actually, the bible doesn't say "Thou shalt not kill." The translation in the King James Version (KJV) is wrong. The bible says "You shall not murder" (check the NIV, NKJV and NRSV for the proper translation).
Law is a social construct built upon what society deems to be correct. Religion is applied as an enforcement measure.

"I mean, really, 'Thou shalt not kill?' That's the first one I'd get rid of."
Your sarcasm would be more apt if "Thou Shalt Not Kill" worked in the first place. In case you haven't noticed, it doesn't seem to prevent jack shit.
"Atheists would be the first to agree. Right?"
Yes, I agree that you should get rid of religious bullshit that pretends to make people act appropriately since, you know, it doesn't work. All of your little examples appear to be your own sick fantasies, so no, I don't agree with those.

You are clearly a horrible person if the only thing keeping you from going on a rampage is your vague notion of what is inside a book about an obsolete culture.
9/2/2012 7:06:22 AM
Secular humanism. Google it.
9/2/2012 7:13:21 AM
Oh My Dog!
Ah, another "You are a psychopath without God." bit.
So you're saying, deep down inside, you really do want to kill, rape, torture and steal?
The rest of us, however, don't need some big meanie in the sky threatening us to behave ourselves.

Your little rant only reveals what a morally bankrupt little shit you are. No grand surveillance camera in the sky nor divine sword of Damocles hanging over your head will change that.
Pandemonium is not anarchism.

" I should be able to rape, torture and steal to my own satisfaction. Atheists would be the first to agree. Right?"
Wrong. All those things cause demonstrable harm to a society, and a case can be made against them without ever pointing to any holy book.
9/2/2012 7:31:50 AM
Actually they wouldn't they'd just think you're a dick.
9/2/2012 7:38:09 AM
Shouldn't you be at FR or Moonbattery?
9/2/2012 7:38:35 AM
Morals existed long, long, long before your ridiculous religion. In fact, your "holy" book demands slavery, murder, torture, rape and the smashing of babies heads against rocks. It is the laws of secular society that stops such immoral behaviour and keeps believers in check.
9/2/2012 7:57:54 AM
I wouldn't presume to tell a geologist how to go about their work because I've never studied geology. Similarly, religious imbeciles are only ever going to be displaying their stupidity when they arrogantly presume to lecture atheists about atheism.
Oh, and amongst rational people, discussing torture and rape fantasies is considered very odd.
9/2/2012 8:02:13 AM
No because Atheist have something called compassion.
9/2/2012 8:14:34 AM
Christians would be the first to agree, since they are unable to behave unless they are being threatened with magic torture. Atheists are civilized because they have moral standards
9/2/2012 8:18:58 AM
Your religion did not invent basic human decency and morals. It has, however, been used more than once as an excuse to undermine them.
9/2/2012 8:23:58 AM
Atheists would be the first to agree. Right?
Besides, the christian god can't follow the "Thou shall not kill" commandment. So much for morals.

Enciting murder of women and children , expect a visit from the FBI, oh and the ASPCA bwahahahah
Mirality is a social construct, not religeous.
wrong, atheists respect the laws under which they live, they are a very small percentage of the prison population.
9/2/2012 9:03:06 AM
If fear of a vengeful god is the only thing that keeps you from killing, raping or torturing anyone you don't like, then you are a horrible person who's hell-bound anyway.
After all, your ilk are the ones who claim that your supreme deity persecutes thought-crimes.
9/2/2012 9:14:45 AM
"I should be able to rape, torture and steal to my own satisfaction."
Aren't those acts suppoted in the bible and don't most republicans support torture already?
9/2/2012 9:19:25 AM
I guess we know why Daxxenos is a good boy.
9/2/2012 9:47:16 AM
Stop pretending to have any idea how an atheist would think.
