Quote# 90898[Discussing God and the problem of evil.]
In an atheistic world, it would not matter if we went around killing each other because the species would still exist just fine!
To see how this is true, just observe other species who kill members of their own.
You are essentially arguing that humans are special, which is a theistic argument, which means the problem of evil is refuted.
We do not live in an atheistic world. We live in a theistic world.
If we lived in an atheistic world, you would see us running around in anarchy.
The mere fact that we have order and laws means that the theists automatically start out with a +1 in the debate.
This is a very tired argument.
It is my belief that the atheists do not kill or rape "just in case" God is real. They want to have some kind of leg to stand on if the judgement day occurs.
