Atheism doesn't by Supyloco Atheism doesn't by Supyloco
I've been getting this a lot with both Atheists and the religious since they seem to misunderstand. So no I'm not an Atheist. But here's my case since I have many Atheist friends. So we look at a lot of people who are non-Atheists who say that Atheists are immoral. Well here's my response. I wouldn't say that since I've met a lot of good people who are Atheists and like I said I have friends. These people were among the nicest of people and treated me well. And they know right from wrong. But then Atheists also make this mistake. The idea behind this misconception, at least from my opinion. Is that since Atheists don't set a dogmatic standards towards themselves when it comes to morality. They don't say talk about sexuality like if it were something wrong. It just depends on the individual and how they put things. You can be moral with or without religion. I mean obviously we've seen immoral religious people. So there you go.

Well I don't like continuing conversations if they have nothing else to say. If you do want to talk send me a note or comment on my profile.

The positions "If we legalize X, then society will go to hell" or "X threatens the fundaments of all morality" are quite common. When talking with theists, X may be condoms, homosexuality or adultery, to name just a few. But many atheists hold these views as well, only that they replace X with drugs, violent computer games or internet freedom (of course there are also atheist gay-haters and theist wanna-be censors, and not too few).

I have met people who say you cannot be moral without God, and I have met people who say that you cannot be moral with guns. They share exactly the same mindset: not looking for empirical truth, but instead beginning with a delusion in the first place and only looking for information that strengthens their prejudices. That is not a misunderstanding. That is willful ignorance. And it is only a mistake if these people regret it. If they find satisfaction in their simple worldview and clear concepts of the enemy, then it is actually rewarding to them.
